PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

A 1-page handout/reference of wisdom to promote good mathematical habits for students.

This is written in a tone that is encouraging and supportive, yet direct and clear. It is meant to be friendly reminders that respect students' intelligence, rather than be too preachy or in a "know-it-all" tone.

It encourages students to ask themselves the following questions (each question is followed by a clear explanation and support):

1. Am I taking notes in class?
2. Do I review and/or study my notes before a test?
3. Am I being an active learner? In other words, when I have trouble during math class, am I asking my classmates and/or my teacher questions, or do I just remain quiet and passive?
4. The most common mathematics error is a sign error. When I substitute values into variable expressions, do I put the values in parentheses?
5. When solving problems, do I read the question at the beginning and when I’m done solving the problem?
6. Do I do things for mathematical reasons or simply because it’s what I believe I’m “supposed” to do?
7. If I did poorly on a recent test, did I wait until the last minute (i.e. the day before or worse) to learn a lot of what I needed to know for the test?
8. Does my math teacher seem to care more about how I do than I do?
