Math Study Skills – Time Management (Part 1)

October 5, 2010 at 5:41 am 1 comment

Note: This is the beginning of a series of blogs on advice for students concerning Time Management. The series will run over the next several Tuesdays.

The best time to study new material is as soon as possible after the class ends. Look over your calendar of commitments for a block of time as close to your class as possible. This may include studying in between classes while you are still on campus. It’s a good idea to study each day at the same time.

Start your study session by reworking your notes: add definitions from the book, write down questions you have, summarize each page of notes. After looking through examples in the textbook move on to your homework exercises.

A second study period, later in the day, should be established for review purposes. This second study period can be used to review homework, review your notes, or even to read ahead for the next class period.


Time management is one area that most students need to improve, and can significantly impact your success in your classes. If you have any thoughts or questions on time management, please share by leaving a comment, or reaching me through the contact page at my web site –
