So, you want to do well this year? Let me give you a couple of suggestions that will make your wish come true. First, effort is the most important skill to develop. As long as you put forth effort to learn, understand, and master mathematics (or any subject for that matter), you will be rewarded with equal effort by your teachers. I can not make you learn if you do not want to learn. So, even though you might be frustrated and want to give up, just stick with it a little longer, ask for help you will get the rewards. Second, do your homework as well as study your notes DAILY. It is not just enough to do the homework. There is a lot that is not covered in homework that you must remind yourself each day. So, there is your first homework assignment from me--STUDY EVERY DAY! Next, stay organized and write legibly. If your work is disorganized and messy, your brain will not be able to make sense of it. The neater and more organized the work, notebook, and notes, the easier it is for your brain to understand the material. Finally, have fun! Math can be enjoyable and fun if you try to learn it. You use it every day of your life, ranking the scores on the video games, figuring out sports stats and the better team, and seeking out the best deal at the shopping mall. So make an effort to learn math and you may even end up liking it too!

I hope you have a great year at Mott! If I can help you in any way this year, just ask.
