Strategies for Success, Second Edition provides a series of study skills activities designed to foster student success in college mathematics. Lynn Marecek and MaryAnne Anthony-Smith encourage students to take an active approach in determining what they need to do to become successful math students. These proven, class-tested activities have been developed over many semesters from the authors’ firsthand experience with their own students.
This workbook contains 44 activities, in ready-to-use worksheet format. The activities can be used in several ways–individual work, group work, or large group discussion. They can be used in class or assigned as homework. An accompanying Instructor’s Guide is available that contains instructions and implementation strategies for each activity to help instructors easily integrate Strategies for Success into their classes.
Some of the topics covered include Notebook Preparation, Reading a Math Textbook, Successful Student Behavior, Time Management, Test Preparation Skills, Study Group Ideas, and much more. The Second Edition also includes several new activities that focus on specific study skills needed by students doing their homework exercises on a computer in online, hybrid, emporium, or redesign formats.
Also, a new online module based on this study skills manual can now be incorporated into custom MyMathLab® courses. It includes an eBook of the Strategies for Success, Second Edition, plus videos and assignable study skills material in MyMathLab.
