 Keys for Success in Science



Have a positive attitude!

  • I am here to help you succeed, so feel free to ask me for help. I am available before and after school in my room.
  • Ask lots of RELEVANT questions. If you are unclear about something from the textbook, lab, or from discussion, ask.
  • Make sure that you understand how the lecture, homework, and labs interrelate.
  • Labs and homework are designed to reinforce significant ideas from the text. Make sure that you see these connections.
  • Start studying for tests early. By studying and reviewing each night you are not only helping to prepare for the test more effectively, you are also more prepared for class each day and any quizzes that may be given.
