Day 7: Notes

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.
