My Advice to a New Math 175 Student:
A very important element in succeeding in math 175 is keeping up
on the homework. Do not fall behind. If you are working with the
material and there is a concept that you do not understand, go in for
help. If you do not get help on the concept it will come back in the
future and hurt you. You can get help from your teacher, or try the
tutoring room. The tutors there are usually a big help. Sometimes the
assigned problems are not enough. Try extra problems and do as many
problems as you can. It will help you become familiar with various
types of problems, and the extra practice never hurts. Read over the
section that you will be studying in class before you get to class. It
may not make sense complete when you read it, but at least you will be
familiar with the material and concepts in the section.
Do not start studying the night before a quiz or exam. If you
spend enough time on the material on a daily basis you will not spend
your Wednesday's working only on calc. Try the problems out of the
chapter review, usually the problems are mixed up. This allows you to
recognize different kinds of problems.
