How do I study for a big history test?
Make sure you start by having a nice quite space to work so that you can focus. I recommend using flash cards. I would start by writing the term on one side of the card and I would also include a picture to represent the term/event. On the backside of the card I would include the basic information that you need to know about the term/event, keep this to a minimum and make sure to write the information out in a clear and clean way. I would use bullet points. You can then use these cards to study out loud by saying the term and then the information out loud. You can also use a white board to rewrite any terms if writing the information is helpful for you. From there I might also go back and watch any videos or lectures on the topics that you feel less secure about. Once you have studied the material for a while, try teaching someone the term/event. If you can teach it without having to reference the flashcard or your notes, chances are you know the material.

How do I subtract a negative number from a negative number?
To subtract a negative number from a negative number, you are actually going to be adding the negative number to the other negative number. An easy way to remember this is that when two negative signs are next to each other, they equal a plus sign. For example: -3 - (-2) = -3 + 2= -1
What is a time signature?
A time signature is at the beginning of any piece of music and it consists of two numbers one on top of each other. The top number explains how many beats there are in a single measure of music, and the bottom number tells you which note value gets the beat. A common time signature is 4/4, meaning the measure has four quarter notes in it. Other common examples include, 3/4, 2/4, 2/2, and 6/8.
