TIPS FOR MAKING NOTE SHEETS FOR CLASS

posted Oct 3, 2015, 3:09 PM by Prof Kiernan
SQUEEZE AS MUCH INFO IN AS POSSIBLE:
  • Use the smallest font you can read without needing a magnifying glass. (see pdf at the bottom of the page with different sized fonts).
  • Leave space to hand write in equations or symbols
  • Draw pictures, use screen shots, make tables smaller (but still readable)
  • Use columns or tables to ensure you have used as much space as possible
  • Use the smallest margins possible. Most printers will print with 0.2" margins.

ORGANIZE IT:

  • Use color coding Make each topic a different color to save time when searching for information.
  • Draw boxes around each topic/formula

DON'T FORGET TO INCLUDE:
  • VOCABULARY and SYMBOLS. Many people forget the vocabulary and symbols on their sheets.
  • CALCULATOR INSTRUCTIONS. If you have the time, use a calculator font to make sure you know which button to push... Here's the ti 83 & ti 84 keys in a font.
    I've used this font to make the instructions for the correlation calculator instructions.
  • FORMULAS & EXAMPLES. Especially for topics you frequently mess up on.

TRY IT OUT BEFORE THE EXAM

  • Print a copy at home or email a copy to yourself saved as a PDF file so you don't lose any of your formatting.
