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 5 - 7 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 time management, remember several things: (i) your marks this year will be sent to the universities as they consider your application against other national and international students!! (ii) ultimately what will make you successful (or not) in university is not so much what you know, it's how you manage your time (and your freedom)!!!  and (iii) what/how you do in Math this year will impact what Math options you have for your Senior year!
