Doing Well in Calculus
Written by: D. A. Kouba
•
Develop an effective and timeefficient
homework/study strategy
for, not only your
calculus class, but other classes as well. This will help you become a more confident,
successful, and wellrounded student. It will lead to a healthier balance between work
time and leisure time.
•
Spend at least
two to four hours
on each homework assignment. This affords you extra
time to work on challenging homework problems and helps you organize your thoughts,
questions, and ideas. The more time you spend on homework, the more likely you are to
articulate clear, concise questions to your classmates and teachers. The more time you
spend on homework, the less time you will spend on frantic, lastminute preparation for
exams.
•
Definitions, formulas, and theorems that are introduced in class or needed to complete
homework assignments should be
memorized immediately
. Postponing this until it's
needed for the exam will impede your work speed on homework assignments and
interfere with clearer and deeper understanding of calculus.
