How to study for a quiz/test/final

  1. Study with the Equation sheet next to you always, so you can learn to use it BEFORE the test. This Equation Sheet has been provided to you in class.
  2. Problems:
    • Redo the problems in the worksheets and previous quizzes without looking at the original.
    • Then, check answer.
    • Ask yourself/ others/teacher how to get the right answer if you didn't get it.
  3. Graphs/diagrams:
    • Redraw graph/diagram for each situation without looking at original.
    • Then, check to see if you got it right.
    • Make sure to understand the right answer; if it doesn't make sense clarify with a classmate/teacher/tutor...
  4. Come in during office hours and get help if something isn't clear OR ask a friend OR ask email me OR talk to me after class.
