If you are looking for my list of math games, go here.

Our syllabus describes the class **calendar**, **homework**, **practice tests**, **rubrics**, and other important information.

The main topics in this class are ratios and proportions, percent, measurement and basic geometry.

Mastering new math topics ultimately involves changing how we think and practicing thinking critically. These have been called the two keys to student success.

Therefore the process of learning our math topics is like a chair that stands on four legs: turning lectures into helpful lecture notes, dilligently doing both "prompt" and "enough" homework problems, developing good test-taking techniques, and rehearsing careful step-by-step work on practice tests. Neglecting any of these four is dangerous! Please do not demonstrate such recklessness. Successful students make time for all four.

You can see your grades for chapters 1 to 4 (review).

You can see your grades for chapters 5 and 6 (ratio and percent).

You can see your grades for chapters 8 and 9 (measurement and geometry).

You can see your overall grades. Remember that "Percent of Maximum Possible" counts how much of the possible points you have, and is much more a measure of work completed than an estimate of your eventual overall grade.

You can see your attendance, but it is not graded.

A key part of having a strong math foundation is adopting the study skills that make efficient and productive math learners.

Also see LCC's poster PDF *Tips for Success* and the textbook's study tips.

I also recommend two nice video series. The first is by Stephen Chew of Samford University, and discusses study skills in general. The second is by Jessica Bernards of Portland Community College and Mark DeSmet of Cabrillo College, and is specific to studying math.

I have also had math students who have passed my basic math classes visit my office hours to ask for help with factoring or extra practice with word problems.
