How to Survive Precalc Functions With Mr. Jackson
Step 1: DO YOUR HOMEWORK• This probably seems like a “duh” sort of thing but not really.• Homework isn’t due until the end of the unit, do it before the night before the test ▫ You’ll get behind otherwise• It’s stressful the night before!• You feel behind in class if you don’t do it!
Step 2: STUDY FOR YOUR TESTS• “Oh I just did the review! That’s good!”• Look over your notes!!! Not everything is on the review! Stuff from past units is there too!• Review past units!
Step 3: GET HELP• Not everything in this class is easy. A lot of it is complicated and some of it is really hard.• Don’t get behind, ask for help right away.• Jackson gets to school around 4:30am and is here until 4pm there’s no reason not to get some help• It makes the class easier• Sometimes everyone just needs one on one help
Step 4: STUDY SOME MORE• It never hurts to study a lot… Just saying…. Pick your grade! Getting Motivated
What it takes to get an A• Studying• Doing your homework ontime (though it doesn’t hurt to leave a problem or two on every worksheet to save for review)• Getting help when needed
What it takes to get a C• Some effort• Maybe getting help• Doing 50% of the homework• Not really studying
What it takes to get an E• No effort• Hah! What studying?!• No homework or a few problems• What’s getting help?

Step 5: UTILIZE PEOPLE IN YOUR CLASS• Study together, work on the worksheets together ▫ It’s easier to ask a question from a friend sometimes ▫ And friends/classmates can explain it better (somestimes)
Overall just remember…• To do your homework• Study• Get help…And you will be absolutely fine.
