The outcome of the test was better than I thought; I was impressed with the result and had a better understanding. I also decided to take notes for every topic throughout my 10 days revision this was in addition to know my weaknesses and if I couldn’t understand I would ask my lecturer for help. Fractions are not my weakest in maths as I do have a rough understanding. Saturday 7th December 2013 - Maths Factors On Saturday I usually work from morning to evening, but this day I decided to take a day off to spend time with family and to prepare for my maths exam. As my timetable shows this was an incredibly busy day spending time with my child and being able to visit my family.
After about one week in PEP course, I decided to make a timetable which has a particular arrangement in everyday. At first, it is very helpful for me to arrange my time. Because I need not to think about what I should do next, besides, according to timetable, I can start to do my homework in a short time. However, day after day, I find the timetable is not very suitable sometimes. For example, I had originally intended to go to the State Library every Friday afternoon to ask some question for a tutor.
The classmates that I’ve encountered have hoped the March Break to be two weeks. This is mostly because of the influence that the Winter Break has given the students. After having the relaxing Winter Break, students don’t even consider the March Break as break. They change how the March Break is looked as a break compared to the Winter Break, so it would be like from an enjoyable March Break to just couple of days off school. If teachers are willing to give up a week for March Break they might as well... ... middle of paper ... ...rch is the arrival of a beautiful season, spring.
After finishing the math and science sections of the test I got a fifteen minute break to refresh my brains, go to the bathroom, and get water. After taking just two section of the test I was very fatigued, hungry, and I was ready to go home to take a long three hour nap. During the Reading part of the test was very long and boring I felt very antsy to just finish the rest of the test. The science part of the test was very hard and I did not understand none of graphs and questions they were asking on the test. In my mind I was telling myself I can finish the rest of the test strong.
I was taking chemistry, calculus, and biology. I had a few more but I don’t really remember. But the thing is it was very different from high school. In High school you would just study what you had to study and you would easily get the A and when I started college that was what I was doing. And then I realized, “wait a second that’s not the right thing you’re suppose to study at least two weeks ahead before the exam sometimes one week before the exam won’t be enough”.
Even though you may not be the finest in the kitchen, if you keep reading you will discover all of the secrets to transforming slimy dough, to crisp, chewy, deliciousness. To engineer your batch of chocolate chip cookie you will need to start off by gathering up all of the ingredients. You will need one cup of melted butter, it is preferred use melted butter instead of hardened because melted butter will mix better with the other ingredients in your batter. One-half teaspoon of baking soda or baking powder is needed. You will need two large eggs, one cup of packed light-brown sugar, one-half cup of granulated sugar, one teaspoon of salt, and two teaspoons of pure vanilla extract.
Now-a-days school is about how obedient a student can be, and the “routines are set up to discourage you from self-discovery” (Gatto 523). Administrations are more concerned about how well their students can do on performance tests than how well students actually learn the material. In high school and grade school, students sit in class for eight hours and listen to teachers lecture at them and then go home to do hours worth of homework. The only aspect that changes from this routine in college is that it is much harder and students spend more time studying and doing home... ... middle of paper ... ...e individuals that could afford to go to college?

To my dismay, I would not be able to change my class schedule until the middle of the fall semester. As a result I entered an Algebra 2 class in the twelfth week of school and had to make up months of homework. However, despite all these complica... ... middle of paper ... ...earn about the work of great scientists including Sir Isaac Newton, Michael Faraday, and my favorite, James Clerk Maxwell. I also was grateful to have learned about waves and energy, my favorite physics concepts and the cornerstone behind modern physics, with unique tie-ins to mathematics. Knowing my time with this course would be basically transient; I relished every moment and hope to further study this topic in college and graduate school.
The first round of tests will begin next week, and after getting a glimpse over the last few weeks I know it is within my reach to make an ‘A’ in each of the courses I am taking. Although the total course load I am enrolled in for this semester is on the high end, 19 credit hours, I know that by planning things out and using my time efficiently I should do well and not fall behind. In addition to the courses from my major, engineering and calculus, and am taking three classes as part of a minor in business, and a kinesiology class. The two remaining classes, which are also the ones I am the most excited for, are ‘Design Process’ and an engineering research elective. The reason I am excited for these two classes is that they are different from any class I have previously taken.
Having a mom that is a teacher he had very high standards for himself making all A’s in honors classes. Quickly I began to look up to Nick academically. He mentioned one day in gym that he was going to essentially skip senior year and go to college in a dual enrollment program where he would be getting credits for his senior year to graduate and getting credits for college. Knowing at this point it would be beneficial for me to do this programs, I began studying for the test to get into the program. Night after night of studying the test was in only a week.
