My Advice to a New Math 175 Student:
Always go to class!!! If you skip a day, you will get very far behind.
Everything in Calc builds off of something you learned earlier, even if
you don't see the connection at first. Do not be afraid to ask
questions in class. Don't worry about looking like an idiot for asking
a question, someone else probably wanted to ask that question too, but
was afraid to. One question can be the difference between
and not understanding something. See someone at the first sign of
trouble, don't wait until the problem is too big to handle. Five
minutes with a tutor when you first get confused is better than two
hours later on down the road. Keep up on the assignments. I have
that when I skipped an assignment or didn't put a lot of time into it,
did bad on that part of the test. Try all of the assigned problems,
even if you are sure you understand something, try them anyway,
can only make you better, and may uncover something that you really
don't understand. Take good notes!! At night when you are doing your
assignment, they are your best friend and help to get it done. To see
if you really understand a concept, try explaining it to someone else.
This is one of the best tests to see how well you understand what you
