__HINTS & TIPS & SUGGESTIONS for Success__

**Course Theme: As you sow, so shall you reap**

**Here's a couple of suggestions for making through this
course successfully (and maybe even getting a good mark ...... as if that was
important ?!?!?!?!)**

**(1) Homework suggestion;
plan on spending an hour a night
on Math, whether it be on homework from class, working on assignments or simply
practicing to keep your skill set sharp. Aim to set aside some weekend time for
Math as well. On the whole, I would expect
about 6 - 8 hours per week devoted to this course.**

**(2) Have a support
network. Who are you going to call when you get stuck? Do
you have a Math Study Group formed yet for awesome weekend math "parties"???
**

**(3) Do not procrastinate on assignments, homework, or
studying for tests. These assessments are difficult and challenging and you may
not have the necessary help if you leave things off until the last minute.
**

**(4) Keep your
notebook organized: Have one section for lesson notes, one
for homework, and one for test prep.**

**(5) ****With respect to
skill development, remember
two things: (i) what course are you planning on taking in Math next year???? (ii) ultimately Math is as much about CHARACTER DEVELOPMENT as it is about graphs & algebra & numbers. A little motto for you: As in Math, so in Life!**
