I’ve been more intentional about students’ note-taking than I have been in the past. Working with mostly high school freshmen, it behoves me to teach some organizational skills.
I think there might be pedagogical/mathematical reasons to encourage organized notes. Euclid put propositions in order. I don’t deign to be Euclid, but as a teacher of mathematics (Geometry in particular), I want my students to experience the myriad connections among concepts within the course.
