From the first day I arrived, I made a schedule. I first made a calendar that I see every morning at least two months in advance. After that, I go on the City Tech academic calendar for Spring 2023, where I put down all the days I am free, holidays, and more. I collect all the syllabus and schedules from each class and add anything that is important to the calendar. On the side of my desk, I have a weekly assignment notepad that I have to check and finish and bookmark all the important websites. The moment I open up my google chrome browser, the top first row in the bookmark area is fast to click on the class websites, and I always remind myself I have to check them.
So far, what I made was a routine that was in front of me and a reminder. Every day, the moment I wake up, life around me reminds me to finish everything now and not later. Why now? That way, I have more freedom to study, work and go back to any other assignments to double-check. So far, every Webwork has been spot on 100% and on time.
As for projects and studying for exams, communication and coordination is essential. We, as humans, also need a reminder to everyone in the class a message, which is not to give up. Tell each other that we can do it or not to have small things like a test grade drag the rest down with you. People tend to slowly give up because they start feeling despair, saying, “What is the point?” I have famous quotes on my wall that might sound silly or others will think it is weird, but one example is ” Just because you tripped, doesn’t mean it’s the end of the world” Motivation!
The last thing I started working on, was looking at other people’s webwork and started working on it as if it was my HW. Now that I know how the first test feels or looks like, I have a better view of what to suspect, how to counter it, and what I need to go over and study. When I help others, I am helping myself too. Youtube tutorials, the book in our class, and going over the notes have been helping me better understand things two days before an exam. Studying a week before the test, I tend to forget. These are my methods to accomplish my daily routine classes every semester and so far have helped me keep good grades, I hope this helps you too!
Here is the google drive link to Project 1; if there are any problems, please let me know. Our first video was 30 minutes which included writing it down, but in this new video, we had it all written ahead of time and scripted that way, so we cut it down to 13 min. https://drive.google.com/file/d/1CL_c9kI9z-l6Y-rJElmDxODq8RYtcoZT/view?usp=share_link
