Math is NOT a spectator sport!

Dear Students
I see too many students trying to do the bare minimum required to pass the class, or at least what they feel is the bare minimum required. The problem with this is they often underestimate the amount of work required early in the class, get behind, and then spend the rest of the session playing catch up and having to do far more than just the bare minimum.
You should always try to get the best grade possible! You might be surprised and do better than you expected. At the very least you will lessen the chances of underestimating the amount of work required and getting behind.
Remember that math is NOT a spectator sport! You must be actively involved in the learning process if you want to do well in the class.
I will now write few posts about the common math mistakes which students do commit.I’m convinced that many of the mistakes are caused by student getting lazy or getting in a hurry and not paying attention to what they’re doing.
I hope that the students will be able to understand this and will assure not to repeat such mistakes in future.
