  • Make sure that you have several pages already set up before your instructor begins their lecture to prevent you missing notes that might help you succeed on your tests.

Summarize each section of your notes into only a few words

remember
Remember
  • You can take notes in any format you choose, just keep those notes in the large section on the RIGHT side of the vertical line!
  • Some styles of notes
    • Outline
    • Narrative
    • Symbols
    • Short hand
    • Draw pictures
tips for recording notes
Tips for recording notes
  • Use abbreviations
  • Paraphrase to capture content but simplify writing
  • Use symbols
    • Arrows, circles, underlining, and highlighting
  • Include graphics when necessary
  • Skip lines between ideas
more recording tips
More recording tips
  • Identify words that are unclear.
  • Think about what is being said.
  • Ask questions.
  • Pay attention to class objectives.
    • Make sure your notes are aligned.

    • Look for voice inflections, gestures, etc.
what we ve learned so far
What we’ve learned so far
  • Step 1: Record
    • Take notes on the right side of the page.
  • Step 2: Revise
    • Using your notes, label your notes in short, easy to find words or phrases on the left side of the page. This helps you to find key points within the notes easily when you study.
    • Write questions about your notes that you think the instructor might use on the test.
tips when revising
Tips when revising
  • Develop study questions and identify main ideas.
  • Fill in details for clarity.
  • Look up definitions of words you don’t know.
  • Delete irrelevant information.
  • Add symbols to highlight important points or key words.
  • Write a summary of the significant ideas.
slide17

Possible questions:

How do the ticks find the cattle?

Why don’t the ticks usually kill their host?

How could tick infestations in cattle impact humans?

Reduce ideas and facts to

concise jottings and

summaries as cues for Record the lecture as fully and as

Reciting, Reviewing, meaningfully as possible.

and Reflecting.

This is the balanced equation for the chemical reaction of photosynthesis

= light

Carbon dioxide and water react with light to make glucose (sugar) and oxygen.

Pigments are proteins. (Just like in Ch. 3) Chlorophyll absorbs the light in photosystems.

Plants are green because green light is not absorbed, it’s reflected!

Find out what the other pigments are!

  • PHOTOSYNTHESIS:
  • 6CO2 + 6H2O C6H12O6 + 6O2
  • How do plants capture the sunlight?
  • Chlorophyll is a molec. in chloroplasts.
  • Chlphyll is a pigment.
  • two main types are chlphyll a and chlphyll b
  • other pigments are ________________?
  • chlphyll in plants absorbs the red and blue wavelengths of very well, but not the green areas.
  • Chlorophyll is located in the thylakoid: it contains light collecting photosystems that hold the chlorophyll.
  • Many thyklakoid membranes make up the granum.
  • The fluid interior is called the stroma.

Carbon dioxide, water and light are needed to make sugar. The light has to be absorbed first, the chlorophyll pigments absorb light. The chlorophyll is a membrane protein. They are found in the thylakoid membranes of the chloroplast. Other parts of the chloroplast are the stroma and the granum (a stack of thylakoids).

step 3 recite
Step 3: Recite
  • Cover the note taking column (right side) with a sheet of paper. Then, looking at the key points or questions of the left of the paper, say aloud, in your own words, the answers to the questions, facts, or ideas indicated by those key points or questions.
  • NOW YOU’RE STUDYING!
slide20

Step 4: Reflect

Reflect on the material by asking yourself questions, for example:

-What’s the significance of these facts?

-What principles are these based on?

-How can I apply them?

-How do they fit in with what I already know?

-What’s beyond them?

step 5 review
Step 5: Review

Spend at least 10 minutes every week reviewing all your previous notes. If you do, you’ll retain a great deal for current use, as well as, for the exam.

slide22

Remember: only 10 minutes a week (minimum) for each subject.

With 6 subjects, that’s only an hour a week.
