"For the most part I do the thing which my own nature drives me to do."
-- Albert Einstein

I always teach classes with at least 65 students.  This way, I’m sure to have a

good number of people who will interact with me.  Teachers need you to ask

questions to keep the class lively AND to let them know when they haven’t

explained something clearly enough.  I’ve learned a great deal over the years

from the questions that students have asked me!


Do your homework the same day that you hear the lecture on it!


          You’ve got a lot going on in your life… and that math lecture you just

heard is already starting to leak out your left ear.  DON’T TIP YOUR HEAD! 

The harsh truth is that math lectures have a half-life of about 12 hours… 

This means that, after 12 hours, half of the lecture is gone…  After another

12 hours, half of that is gone, so you are now down to 25% of what you

heard.  You’ll learn more about half-lives in Algebra!


          Get started on your homework as soon as you can and always before

you go to bed that night.  Even if you don’t have time to get it finished, at least,

get a good start on it.
