Finding Time to Study Math
Students are so busy, especially these days with all the distractions(think smartphones, social media, text messaging, you tube, etc.)that less and less time is available for studying. I want to give you some ideas for creating/finding/making time where it seems there is none.
1. Get up a half hour early and study a bit before school, or quiz a friend on the bus on the way to school or have them quiz you.
2. Keep notecards with you wherever you go. Notice all the opportunities to spend a few minutes studying...like when you are waiting in line or when you are waiting for class to start.
3. Never close your books! Always keep them open. Here's one I picked up from a fellow classmate in college. I'd always see this classmate anywhere and everywhere on campus at almost any time. I was surprised he could even pass his classes because I never saw him study nor did I ever see him with any books until one day I discovered his secret. He was actually studying all the time. When I happened to see him he was just taking a short break but he always kept his books open at the law library all day long. He'd study for awhile then take a break, study a little more then take another break, and keep on doing this all day long.
In conclusion, be creative, be clever and figure out a way to include more time to study in your day.
