Helpful Hints for
the Material

Watch your video notes without
interruption. Take your time and
complete the Note-Taking Guides.
Complete the "Check Your
Understanding" questions at the
end of the Note Taking Guides.
Complete all practices until
mastery is achieved.
If you have difficulty completing these
questions after completing the notes seek additional instruction from me.
Complete labs early so you have time to make corrections on lab reports.

Good Practices
Back up work frequently with an
external device (flash drive).

Keep your files organized in folders by units.
Your work will quickly pile up, and establishing a
system for easily locating materials you’ve produced
for your coursework is immensely valuable.

Plan ahead. Don’t leave things until the last
minute. Especially in online work, planning is
important. Websites might be unexpectedly
unavailable, internet connections might be weak,
and computers might crash.
