Taking Notes and Keeping a Journal

  • Think how helpful notes can be to you. Notes should help you remember what you learned in class.

Taking Notes In Math

  • Notes should also serve as a guide when you try exercises on your own.

Slide5 l.jpg

Taking Notes In Math

  • Make notes on any new concepts and formulas you have just learned.

  • Write down any concepts your teacher put on the board. You’ll need to know these for a test.

Taking Notes In Math

  • If your teacher gives you problems to solve, look back over your notes for help.

  • Note-taking improves your understanding of new topics because it makes you listen carefully and focus on the key details.

Keeping A Journal

  • A math journal is a good place to record examples as well as fun facts about mathematics.

Slide8 l.jpg

Keeping A Journal

  • Write about new vocabulary, use symbols with examples, and draw diagrams or illustrations.

  • Include descriptions or discussions of how mathematics is used in the world around you.

Slide9 l.jpg

Listening Skills

  • Listen attentively - Think about what the teacher is saying and how the problem is being solved.

  • Ask a question if you are uncertain about a particular step or part of a solution.

  • By listening, you will also be ready to respond if you are called upon.

Working Together

Find A Math Buddy

  • Learning to work together in a group is an important skill.

  • Whether the project is with school, community, or family, the group that is able to work together will have good results.

  • To make a group more effective, practice these good work habits.

Slide11 l.jpg

Good Work Habits

  • Cooperation - The only way a group can cooperate and work together successfully is to use common courtesy and share a common goal.

  • Everyone in the group should take part in the project and no one should be left out.

Slide12 l.jpg

Good Work Habits

  • Responsibility - Success is learning and reaching the goals of the group.

  • You need to be responsible for yourself and for the whole group.

  • Do your assigned task carefully and help others do theirs.

Slide13 l.jpg

Good Work Habits

  • Listening -Listen to group members as they explain the methods they used to solve a problem.

  • For many problems there are alternate solutions, and you can learn a lot by listening to others explain their thinking.

Slide14 l.jpg

Good Work Habits

  • Encouragement - Give words of encouragement and credit a job well done or a good suggestion.

  • Persons in the group who feel their efforts are appreciated will contribute more and feel better about their contributions.

  • Remember to be courteous.

Slide15 l.jpg

Good Work Habits

  • Decision Making - The group often must decide what the project will be and when, where, and how to do it.

  • Be sure to state your points clearly.

  • But also, be willing to follow a different but equally good plan.

Slide16 l.jpg

Good Work Habits

  • Creativity - Apply what you already know to learn new concepts, but be open-minded about new approaches and strategies.

  • Look for rules, patterns, and strategies.

  • Explore and make sense of new ideas as you work together to try to make new connections.

Slide17 l.jpg

Managing Your Time

  • If you can’t seem to get things done on time (or at all), you might want to practice time management.

  • This will help you organize both your study time and your free time more efficiently since you should be spending less time on procrastination!

Slide18 l.jpg

Managing Your Time

  • Keeping a Weekly Schedule A weekly planner helps you organize your assignments and plan for time to complete them.

  • It allows you to plan ahead and prepare for exams, projects, or assignments.

  • Keep this schedule in your notebook or in your math journal.

Slide19 l.jpg

Managing Your Time

  • Make a Daily List - Write down things you need to do today and must do tomorrow.

  • Number them in order of importance.

  • Hang the list is a place where it is easy to check.

  • Check off items as you complete them.

Slide20 l.jpg

Managing Your Time

  • Have a Homework Schedule Set aside a specific time for doing homework assignments.

  • Allow yourself short breaks between each assignment.

  • Do not make any break longer than 5 minutes, so you can finish your homework accurately and quickly.

Slide21 l.jpg

Managing Your Time

  • Set Goals - Set realistic goals and reward yourself for completing tasks that you set for yourself.

  • Do not be too hard on yourself.

  • Try to learn from goals or tasks that you don’t quite achieve.

  • Reward yourself for reaching key goals.

Slide22 l.jpg

Managing Your Time

  • Get It Done and Turn It In On Time - Go over all the directions your teacher has given you for completing an assignment.

  • Check your notes and your textbook to make sure that you know how to accurately complete an assignment.
