Tests taken today have been returned.

Many of you have now taken the Module 1 test without passing, some more than once. Wise students will take this as evidence that the study methods that work well enough in other classes do not work well in this one. In particular:

  • If you are not stopping and rewinding the videos constantly, then you are not engaging them. Every time you see a problem worked, stop and make sure that you can do it yourself. If you can not, rewind the video, study it again, and try it until you can.
  • Doing the homework in this class does not mean that you have attempted some of the problems with mixed results. It means you have done all of it, fully examined the solutions, determined which problems you have gotten wrong, discovered why and reworked them correctly.
  • "Slow and steady wins the race" really is the best motto for this class. Do not be in a hurry to get to a test. Immerse yourself in the material and learn it deeply. When you do this, test-taking is usually a satisfying experience and you will repeat far fewer of them.

We do not meet this Friday!
