Advice for the New Quarter

Hi Everyone,

I found this article regarding the "secrets" of syllabi. 
It's a new quarter, meaning you get to start fresh! You might want to also keep the following in mind:

  • Write down all important dates (midterms, homework due dates, finals, etc.) for ALL classes in a planner or overall quarter/semester sheet.  Keep this list posted in your room/study area and refer it regularly. 
  • Despite that "small" homework percentage, complete ALL of your homework.  Reasons:
    • Homework = test questions (or something very similar). 
    • Every amount to your grade helps....unless you obtain 100% on ALL of your tests (which you probably won't, sorry), it's really awesome to get these points....something I like to refer to as "free points"
Have a wonderful quarter! If you have any other organizational tips for the new year, feel free to leave a question in the comments.

Good luck!
