For my math classes, I typically have one problem set due weekly. I struggle with prioritizing learning the material and trying all of the problems early.
Ideally, I would spread out a series of tasks on a weekly basis. I am going to try this schedule with a Beeminder set at a rate of 15 tasks per week. I will include some Buffer to avoid the way Beeminder averages the rate over individual days.
Friday – Edit solutions in AM, Watch lecture 1, 2
Saturday – Read book 1, 2 / Watch lecture 3
Sunday – Read book 3 / Write down questions based on material / Start first 66% of problems
Monday – Go to office hours / Do a second pass on first 66%
Tuesday – Try remaining 33% of problems
Wednesday – Go to office hours / Do a second pass on remaining 33% of problems
Thursday – Type solutions in AM / Edit solutions in PM
Will check in on 10/30 to report how this is going!
