PREALGEBRA
Learning Objectives
Work Habits – Throughout the quarter, you should
1. learn to extract concepts and techniques from the textbook,
2. be able to stay focused on and complete tasks requiring multiple steps or
several minutes, and
3. take greater responsibility for your own learning (set aside enough time to
learn the material, prepare for class ,
attend class regularly, and evaluate your own strengths and weaknesses and take
steps to improve).
Mental Habits – Throughout the quarter, you should develop your ability to
1. avoid typographical errors ( like incorrectly copying numbers, forgetting to
carry symbols from step to step, etc.),
2. follow all parts of directions without needing additional reminders,
3. recognize patterns (or deviations from previously learned patterns) in math
and your own habits, and
4. apply mathematical knowledge to new situations or analyze why some concepts
and techniques are valid.
