**Tuesday 5/14/2019**

AP Exam day.

**Wednesday 5/15/2019**

Ice cream day!

**D's and F's on the last three exams and not sure what to do before your next test/retest?**

1) **Actively quiz yourself using****:** **AB Practice Tests Tab** / **AB Practice Test Depot****. **Predict what sort of problems will be on the exam (I try to help you with that by posting many practice exams.). Solve those predicted problems prior to each exam; that would be active quizzing! Create your own examples. **Skimming notes is crap as a college math study habit.** Re-writing or annotating notes while reworking examples out of your notes is active studying. When in doubt, work through one of those blank tests from the **AB Practice Tests Tab**, **score** yourself, perform **detailed test corrections**, and use the problems you got incorrect to guide your further study.

2) **Aim to complete and understand 100% of the homework** (**including MCQs/FRQs**):

a) Come in to the Q&A sessions, before school, or after school and get every question you have on every problem answered. And/or form study groups for the same purpose. If you get stumped by a problem over break, write down your question, snap a picture with your phone, and email me the question. I will generally respond within 48 hours.

b) If you have to use the solutions or get help on a problem, find a similar problem to attempt on your own after you understand the first problem. Stop being obsessed with doing the minimum.

c) If you have to look up a formula to start a problem, copy that formula down in pen in the margin of your work, say the formula out loud, make a flash card for that formula, etc. Use every possible trick to commit as many of these formulas to memory as possible. Looking above at the previous problem for a formula does VERY LITTLE for long term memory building for many students. Looking isn't good enough for AP Exams.

3) **Re-evaluate your study habits****:** Experiment with new study habits prior to college to find what works best for you.

**Study Habits for Math in College** / **Study Habits for Calculus**** / ****Study Habits for AP Calculus**

4) Order a **Princeton Review AP Prep. Book for Calc.** or check one out from the school library. Force yourself to schedule 1-2 hour blocks where you just start at the beginning of that book and move forward (all the way back to limits).
