Know How to Take Notes

Using your Notes is the strategy featured in Chapter 5 (see page 218). Encourage your student to
take complete and accurate notes during class as the teacher goes over examples. Soon after taking
the notes, they should be reviewed. If there is something that your student doesn’t understand,
he/she should get help from the teacher or another student. Answers for their questions should
then be recorded in their notes as well. Additionally, you may want to ask your student questions
about the material to check for understanding.

Key Ideas Your student can demonstrate understanding of key concepts
by working through the following exercises with you.
