  • My advice for a successful year in math is to . . .  

    • Try your best and do your best work and you will get through math.
    • My advice for a successful year in math is to always show your attention to Mrs. Hynes and be grateful you got such a great teacher.
    • Always try your best.
    • Never wait till the last minute to study for quizzes or tests.
    • Stay focused and try to get your work time in the class time given.
    • Don’t forget to your work.
    • Have fun!
    • My advice for a successful year in math is to make sure to pace yourself well and to not get distracted. I know this is annoying and you probably hear it from adults, but don’t get sucked into drama and things that won’t matter to you down the line. I didn’t get sucked into drama this year and I did great in my opinion. I kept my grades up and didn’t have to worry about failing. You have to focus on your school work when it is given to you and put other unimportant things aside, like drama. It will make your life so much easier because your mind won’t be racing with a 100 million things. 
    • Always value your time, my time was sadly cut short! Enjoy your time in that class, but make sure you are always on task and focused on what needs to be done. If you find that the work is a little bit hard, Mrs. Hynes will always try to help, so don’t be afraid to ask. Make sure that you always put work first, and friends second. Keeping your grades up is important if you would like to go into Math Accelerated or even the next step of math (algebra) in 7th grade. Always remember that you are always capable of doing something. With this confidence, it helps you better achieve your goals. Also, if your locker won’t open, make sure that you go to the class your going to and tell them that you might be a little late. This way they can either help you, or they won’t mark you with a late.
    • To stay focused and try your best and try your best to not fall behind be in her class the class does wait for you it just keeps on going
    • Do all the work. Math isn’t easy, but it’s fun. Do as much extra credit as you can, a mistake I made. Also, distinguish yourself. Math is by far the funnest class I’ve ever had, and it can be yours, too, but treat it as a fun school class. Also study. A lot. It’s important.
    • STUDY, I can't say it enough. It will help you so much, yes in elementary school you could do fine without it, but it helps so much. And I don't mean 5 hours a night, but like sit down for a good 10-15 minutes and just study.
    • Also don’t overthink everything. I used to overthink practically everything. It’s just gonna confuse you more. Also you when you realize you're overthinking it you kind of just get a “deer in headlights” moment
    • Always listen to Mrs. Hynes 
    • Be polite
    • Don’t procrastinate
    • Ask for help when you need it
    • Compare answers with friends
    • Participate
    • Speak your mind
    • If you are having trouble, tell someone who can help you
    • Remember that you got this!
    • Check your answers, because I got so many questions wrong because of a stupid mistake haha
    • My advice is to always study and work hard. Don’t forget your homework and try not to forget anything in your locker, always to have a extra pencil at hand.
