School again! How can that be?

Remember one thing: the teacher (and boss!) is always right (well, not always, but you know what I mean 😉 ) So hope you get a good math teacher, but it’s probably more important that you respect your teacher and always try to make a good impression (and work hard!).

I’ve posted these hints before, but they are worth mentioning again:

- Keep up with the
**homework**; this is probably the most important. Sometimes we think we understand the math, but actually we can’t do the problems. Even if you have to do 2 or 3 from each section, make sure you can do**each type of problem**that is assigned to you. - Try to go to as many
**school tutoring sessions**that you can, if you don’t feel good about the math (or, even if you do!). If you have the luxury of a private tutor, try to go ahead a little bit if you can, so you can hear the lecture twice. - See if you can get your hands on
**old tests**, like from an older sibling, friends, etc. I know this may seem like “cheating”, but they do (or should) change the questions every year. This way you can have a good idea what’s expected of you. - Use
**She Loves Math**or another site to read through material before you have the lecture; this way you’ll have a better chance of keeping up with the new material. And feel free to send specific questions to me to see if I can help 🙂.

Hope this helps and let me know if you have any math questions; I’ll try to answer them!

I’m still not done with SheLovesMath, but getting there. I’m still tackling Calculus sections, and I’ve done most of **Differential Calculus** and started **Integral Calculus**. The Calc pages completed are **Definition of the Derivative**, **Basic Differentiation Rules**, **Equation of the Tangent Line**, **The Chain Rule**, **Implicit Differentiation and Related Rates**, **Curve Sketching**, **Optimization**, **Differentials, Linear Approximation and Error Propagation**, **Antiderivatives and Indefinite Integration**, **U-Substitution Integration**, and **Differential Equations and Slope Fields**.

Please spread the word about **She Loves Math**, and let me know how it can be better! I have almost 2 million pages views total now, and I hear from students all over the world 😉 .
