It is well worth downloading the free app Desmos onto your smartphone. Once downloaded it is a stand alone graphing utility that can be used without internet access.

The software cannot be downloaded to a computer but can be run on-line at www.desmos.com

This advice contained in these 5 short videos can help you to improve your study skills in all your subjects at both A-level and at university. We will watch them in class and talk about them in September. However, I believe you need to watch them more than once to take all the advice on board.

Professor Stephen Chew is a cognitive psychologist from Samford University, Birmingham, Alabama. In 2011, he recorded five short videos (each 5 - 9 minutes long) to help students become more effective learners. They contain a whole range of dos and don'ts together with practical suggestions you can adopt to improve your learning. Below are direct links to each video.
