AP1 Lecture Videos

To Get the Most Out of These Streaming Video Lectures:

1) Know that these were recorded live in the classroom during a previous semester. Therefore, any mention in these videos of dates or upcoming events should be ignored. The correct exam dates for the current semester are available through the link to the left "AP1 Lecture Handouts and Learning Tools." .

2) When viewing each of these videos you may pause and restart as often as you like. You may drag the slide bar forwards or backwards to advance or back up.

3) Take notes while viewing each video just as you would in the classroom. This shifts you from being a totally passive learner to at least a partially active learner. Research shows you learn faster and retain more when you are an active learner. Taking notes is the first step in that direction.

4) Find and print the handout titled "Study Techniques the 'A' Students Use." You'll find it under AP1 Lecture Handouts and Learning Tools. This is the best collection of study techniques - ever! This is what 'A' students do to make their 'A's.
