and how you will be expected to complete your notes
so you are ready to practice concepts in class
 There will also be a video segment on how to do the
Example Problems in the textbook should you need
help working through these (will be done in class so
you know what to expect)
HINT: Make sure to write down these examples in your
notebook
 Once you feel you have understood the concepts in the
video and notes, and feel you understand the
examples, you are ready to move on to practicing
problems
