All students are required to keep a Math notebook. Having all your papers in one organized place will help you when studying for quizzes and tests.
All homework is not created equal. I assign odd-numbered problems, so that you can check your answers, not so that you can copy them from the back of the book. Homework is a learning tool intended to help you practice various skills. Carefully completing and correcting each night's assignment will reinforce what has been presented in class.
Getting Help in Math
The study of mathematics is sometimes difficult. If you are having difficulties with the material in your class, seek help immediately. It is much better to address a small problem before it compounds into a larger issue.
