I hope each and every one of you had a (somewhat) relaxing summer and are ready to get back to hard work!

Here are some tips for success in your **math class**:

- Read ahead before class if you can. If you don’t have the book and have the topic, read the topic on
**She Loves Math**! Or you can do both!**It’s always better to hear the lesson twice!** **If**you can do all (or most) of the problems assigned, but totally don’t understand the topic, that’s OK! A lot of times we too bogged down with trying to understand WHY a math concept or equation works, but most of the time, we can leave that up to the math experts (of which I am NOT!)- It really
**is**important to keep up with your math homework every night; usually the next topic will build on what you’ve just learned. - Try to find
**old tests**from friends or siblings; these are great reviews. The tests won’t be the same, but a lot of time the questions may be similar. - If you’re having trouble, try to go to
**all**math tutorials at school, especially right before a test.

I didn’t get quite as much writing as I wanted to this summer, but here are some of the sections that I completed:

**Inverses of Functions****Parent Functions and Transformations (this one seems to be popular now)****Piecewise Functions****The Matrix and Solving Systems with Matrices****Introduction to Linear Programming****Rational Functions and Equations**

We’re getting close to 1000 pageviews a day as the new school year starts. Thanks for all your support!

Happy Mathing and I’d love to hear any feedback from you,

Lisa
