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"
