3.  Course Introduction

4.  Math Notebook

  • Everyone needs to keep an organized and detailed notebook for this course.  Your notebook will be one of your best resources for the course.
  • Your notebook should have designated sections for your Notes, Homework, and Tests.
  • You should take notes on each section from the video lessons and when you read the textbook.
  • For each homework assignment, you should have a new piece of paper you use to write out the problem and show your work in detail.  This will be an excellent resource for each module test.
  • For each test, you will be required to show detailed work and turn your work in after every test.  
  • If you begin to struggle in the class, the first thing I will do is ask to see your notebook.  Your notebook is your best record of what you are accomplishing in the course.
