**Know How to Take Notes**

**Using your Notes**is the strategy featured in Chapter 5 (see page 218). Encourage your student to

take complete and accurate notes during class as the teacher goes over examples. Soon after taking

the notes, they should be reviewed. If there is something that your student doesn’t understand,

he/she should get help from the teacher or another student. Answers for their questions should

then be recorded in their notes as well. Additionally, you may want to ask your student questions

about the material to check for understanding.

**Key Ideas Your student can demonstrate understanding of
key concepts
by working through the following exercises with you.**
