paragraph in your own words that describes the main ideas in the section,
why these ideas are important, and how you can use the ideas to solve
problems. (For the final exam, you may wish to do this only for the
sections covered since the second uniform exam, and read the paragraphs
you wrote when studying for the two uniform exams.)
Read through the review sheet for the
exam, and make sure you understand each of the topics and have each of the skills described on that sheet.
Think carefully about what you want to write on your one note card.
Try one or more of the
