If the calculator is used properly in the classroom, it can be a great tool that benefits students and teachers. This machine allows teachers to focus on other school subjects that they would have spent on teaching aspects of mathematics that are no longer used today. The tool is beneficial to the pupil because if it is used properly, it allows the student to spend time on how they came to answer instead of reaching the answer and leaving class because time ran out. As teachers and students use the calculator on regular basis, more people will see that in fact it is a tool that is necessary for the student to grow and not a hindrance.
Next time I did this lesson I would actually count how many thumbs were up and how many were down. In order to get a better observation of my students. The students learning was impacted by communicating to me, the teacher, how they felt about the lesson and how comfortable they felt with the material of the lesson. While doing the lesson I could tell the students who had their thumbs up were completing the lesson with no problem and the students with thumbs down were struggling a little bit. If students didn’t understand that material I would also try to explain the problem in a different way using working like bigger or smaller rather than greater than or less than.
I understand now that it was not a torture that making me learn how to spell aim to sour that my classmates and I got the opportunity to make most of ourselves make.

Students must learn to incorporate critical thinking to their knowledge. Yet teachers simply give the students work sheet with a few critical thinking questions. These products or demonstrations are not enough, which is why other countries are surpassing us. Teachers forget these will be the leaders of the future, it is in everyone interest they are educated properly. The teacher doesn’t need to feel pressure, just teach students what you know to the best of your knowledge; with critical thinking skills and they can manage the rest.
The test taking lessons have helped me learn more about having good strategies for a test. I feel that with these lessons learned I can have more confidence to take a test and pass it. In this report I want to show why test taking is an important skill to learn. I also wanted to describe how I have prepared for test in the past. I also wanted to discuss three strategies I have learned from the computer tutorial in class and how I have changed my study habits so I can do better on test.
This experiment is worth investigating because it can help students discover the best way to revise for tests without wasting time and effort. This study can also help teachers teach more effectively. Aim The aim of this experiment is to discover how when you study before a test (a week before or right before) affects your test marks.

They complain about wasting so much time on studying yet they don 't get the marks that they hope for.
The first thing a person can do to improve their study habits is take better notes. When taking notes you do not have to write down every word the teacher says, if you do that you’re not going to know what's important and what's not important. If you do that you’re going to be studying things that’s not important and that could confuse you and make studying really boring. Write down only the things that you think are important. You can even read ahead in a book and highlight what you think is good information to know.
For someone, who hasn’t taken this class yet, wanting to know what learning is I would say learning is not only knowing something well enough that you can take a test on said subject and do well. Learning is about knowing something to the extent that you can apply it to real life and not just school. As said in Chapter 1.2 of the book, learning is connecting to what you’re experiencing and then making sense of it all. The way I viewed learning at the beginning of class is very different to what I know learning is now. I thought learning was just about studying hard and knowing something well enough that you can pass a test.
