Question:

The professor I have is throwing a lot of information at us in a really short period of time. How can I possibly learn all of this information in time for my exam?

Answer:

That's a great question, and I was asking myself the same thing when I started taking biochemistry. Something that worked for me was getting in a good routine. For me, this looked like reading the chapter after each lecture, taking detailed notes, and then compiling the most important concepts into a mind map. The mind map allowed me to see how each of the concepts fit together. Although this was the best for me, it may not be the best for you! What are some studying techniques that have worked for you in the past?

Question:

Do doctors create the belly button when a baby is born?

Answer:

This is a great question! Although it may seem like the doctor assisting in the birth of the newborn forms the belly button, that's not actually true. Once the umbilical cord is cut, the doctor will leave a small section of it attached. Seems weird, right? The newborn's body will actually form the belly button on its own, and the small piece of cord will dry up and fall off. Who knew!

Question:

Everyone always says: "I'm never going to use these algebra equations in real life." Is that really true?

Answer:

I definitely thought that in middle school and asked that question just like many other students in my class. As I near the end of my undergraduate career, I'll be the first to admit that algebra is a skill that I've used maybe more than anything else as a Biochemistry major. Algebra can teach you how to problem solve, compartmentalize, and use critical thinking skills that are crucial not only for a college career, but everyday life.
