Journal

You must keep a course journal in a note book. Keep a separate notebook for your lecture notes.

Purpose:

Keeping a personal course journal has three purposes: (1) it will help you manage your readings and your partnership; (2) it will teach you how to take notes; and (3) you will need to document problems with your partnership in case you want to switch. Your journal will have two kinds of entries: reading entries and meeting entries.

Reading Entry:

Every time you read in the text book, enter a reading entry into your journal. It consists of two lines: date (when you read) and sections (what you read).

Meeting Entries:

Create a new page for each meeting. The first five lines should specify:

  1. when you met
  2. where you met
  3. what you worked on (exercises, sections in the book)
  4. when and where you will meet next
If your partner doesn't show up for the meeting, make a note. Then use the last part to note when/how you have tried to reach your partner. If you send email, print a copy and glue it into your journal.
