My Personal Ritual When Studying For A Math Exam

293 words, 2 pages

Intro Sample...


A ritual is an established routine that is followed the same way each time. For example my personal ritual is studying for a math exam. I have created this ritual to help me maintain my concentration for studying.
When I am studying for a math exam my main goal is to learn the material so I can do well. I will study for few a days before the exam. On the first night I always spread my books on my bed. After I look over lecture notes, rework problems and look over homework, by doing this it helps me remind me of what has been discussed in previous class.
I often doze off when I am studying on my bed this is when I know it is time to change my location. I go get a cup of coffee and study in the kitchen for the reminder of the night. The kitchen is not as comfortable as my bed but it helps me stay awake and I have more space to use on the kitchen table. I stay up until I finish reviewing my lecture notes and homework.
The next day I will make an exam for myself. I will take it after a delay period so I would not remember where I got the problems from. I will do this at least two days before the exam. Afterwards I will go back over what I had trouble on the practice exam.
On the afternoon before the exam I reread lecture notes and work out problems. That night I try to clear my head and do something fun just to relax and get the exam out of my head. The next day one hour before the exam I glance over notes and problems just to refresh my memory now I am ready to take the exam.
Maintaining this ritual has organized my study habits and has made me a better math student. As a result I have been able to accomplish my goal of doing well on my exam. Keeping this ritual has made it possible to achieve my degree one exam at a time. View More »

    Hmong World View and Social Structure According to Durkheim (1961), the source of what we regard as sacred or religious lies within our own image. The deities and spirits we pay respect to are but "society transfigured" for in the final analysis we only worship our society. It is society which is both the cause and the expression of religious sentiments through regular ritual representations (Aron, 1967: 53) These rights constitute beliefs enacted for the purpose of preserving a sense of belonging for the participants and maintaining them together as a group. They not only tie the members o

However, diagnostic testing is also available to assist students in assessing their weaknesses in thei

    What does the tomb of tutankhamen and its contents show about the Egyptian concern for the afterlife? Tutakhamen's tomb, and the artifacts inside are an indication of the concern the Ancient Egyptians held for the after-life of their king.

This was the first, and to date the finest royal tomb found virtually intact in the history of Egyptology. It took almost a decade of meticulous and painstaking work to empty the tomb of Tutankhamen.

    Once upon a time, there was a prostitute called Maria. Wait a minute. 'Once upon a time' is how all the best children's stories begin and 'prostitute' is a word for adults. How can I start a book with this apparent contradiction? But since, at every moment of our lives, we all have one foot in a fairy tale and the other in the abyss, let's keep that beginning. Once upon a time, there was a prostitute called Maria. Like all prostitutes, she was born both innocent and a virgin, and, as an adolescent, she dreamed of meeting the man of her life (rich, handsome, intelligent), of getting married (

    When Politics, Profits, and Education Collide No Child Left Behind No Child Left Behind What comes to mind when one hears the words “no child left behind?” Perhaps one pictures a family of 12 who left one of the children at the gas station during a restroom break - or a school bus that arrived at the zoo field trip with 35 first-grade students but left with only 34!
