Hi, my name is Marija, I'm a mathematician, and today I'm gonna talk to you about how to make a math folder. So you have all of your notes in your notebook, and you shouldn't take those out and put them in a folder, you should actually always keep your old notebooks and put them away in a box once you're done using them. Don't throw them away. But in your math folder, I'm gonna help you organize it today. You've got two sides, right? You've got your left side of your folder and the right side of your folder. The homework that you do the day off, you shouldn't keep in this folder. You should put it in your homework folder that you bring everyday and give all your homework into your teachers. On the left side I would put all of your homework and quizzes that you get back from your teachers. homework and quizzes. And the important thing to do is put them in date order, or in chronological order. And the reason you wanna do this is because if you put it in date order, then they're probably gonna be in topic order, and the topics usually get harder as the class goes on. So you wanna make sure that you have everything in order and you know, you know that you learned how to divide after you learned to multiply. So, if you're looking for division, you know where to look. So that makes it a little easier. On the right side of your folder, I would put your big tests, okay? Because your big tests are gonna include a lot of topics. So you can't really put them in date order, because they might include five of the different topics you had here. But it's important to keep your big tests, because they're a great way to study. So for you to take those back a few weeks, or a month after you taken them, and cover the answers, is a great way to practice for up and coming state tests, or end of the year tastes, or midterms and things like that. So, here's a way to organize your math folder, and don't forget to also keep your math notes, and not throw those out, because you have to remember that you always have a final at the end of the school year. My name is Marija, and I just showed you how to organize your math folder.
