Providing a uniquely smooth, balanced process, Tussy/Gustafson/Koenig's DEVELOPMENTAL arithmetic for college kids, 3rd variation, integrates the easiest of conventional drill and perform with the easiest components of the reform circulate. To many developmental math scholars, algebra is sort of a international language. they've got trouble translating the phrases, their meanings, and the way they practice to challenge fixing. Emphasizing the "language of algebra," the text's totally built-in studying approach is designed to extend scholars' reasoning talents and educate them easy methods to learn, write, and imagine mathematically. It blends educational techniques that come with vocabulary, perform, and well-defined pedagogy with an emphasis on reasoning, modeling, verbal exchange, and know-how talents.

Example text

No matter what your reasons, setting goals for yourself will increase your chances of success. Establish your ultimate goal and then break it down into a series of smaller goals; it is easier to achieve a series of short-term goals rather than focusing on one larger goal. Keep a Positive Attitude. Since your level of effort is significantly influenced by your attitude, strive to maintain a positive mental outlook throughout the class. From time to time, remind yourself of the ways in which you will benefit from passing the course.

Many colleges offer tutorial services for free. Sometimes tutorial assistance is available in a lab setting where you are able to drop in at your convenience. In some cases, you need to make an appointment to see a tutor in advance. Make sure to seek help as soon as you recognize the need, and come to see your tutor with a list of identified problems. Form a Study Group. Study groups are groups of classmates who meet outside of class to discuss homework problems or study for tests. com/Chr is Schmidt 5 Build a Support System • Keep the group small—a maximum of four committed students.

Take Notes You Can Use. Don’t worry about making your notes really neat. After class you can rework them into a format that is more useful to you. However, you should organize your notes as much as possible as you write them. Copy the examples your instructor uses in class. Circle or star any key concepts or definitions that your instructor mentions while explaining the example. Later, your homework problems will look a lot like the examples given in class, so be sure to copy each of the steps in detail.
