Quite often, someone, perhaps in their first college mathematics class, will come to me saying they are having trouble and they will will ask me how to do better. I used to be unsure of what to say. The way people see a subject after having done it for a long time is not the same way that people see it when they are just starting out. A few months ago, I read an article on Study Hacks called “How to Ace Calculus”. Now when somebody asks me about doing better in their Calculus class, I point them to this article.
While I would have appreciated an article like that when I was first learning Calculus, perhaps it can help people who are just beginning their journey deeper into mathematics and those who are just visiting.
