Harvest Your Quizzes

November is the time for harvesting and, for students, that means gathering anything that has been graded and returned–tests, quizzes, homework–and correcting them. Rework the entire problem not just the part that is incorrect. Verify your solution or check your work. Then review the incorrectly worked problem and identify why you got the problem incorrect. Update your notes with key concepts that you learned by reworking the problem to help improve your skill the next time you see a problem like that (i.e., on the final).

November has two school holidays–Veterans Day and Thanksgiving week–so there is plenty of time to harvest.  Use some part of these holidays to correct your work and organize your folders; toss unneeded items and set aside corrected homework, quizzes and tests for finals preparation.  Definitely take some time to relax!
