One of the biggest complaints I hear from students is that they don't know how to take notes in math! I have organized Geometry lessons into fill-in style notes pages. I feel that many students would fill in a page like this whereas they would not necessarily take notes on a blank sheet of paper. This way I have already organized how I am going to present the lesson and students just have to follow along and fill in their notes page as the lesson is taught. Often I will give out a Notes packet so that I am only running copies once per unit and students have a thorough overview of what they learned for the purpose of studying for the test. Steve Smith.
