### Subject: Study Skills

What are three tactics that can be used to become aware of and take control of your time management?

By creating weekly and daily scheduling templates ahead of time this will save me time as those days and weeks approach to begin creating and utilizing a scheduled planner. Another way might be printing blank calendars to fill in ahead of time of the due dates, assignments, projects, tests, etc. that I will need to keep up with. Each week I will make it a priority to set SMART goals to keep me on track with the semesters.

### Subject: Basic Math

How do you solve 4^(2x + 3) = 1?

In exponential equation is an equation in which the variable is located in the exponent. To solve an exponential equation, make the same exponential base on both sides of the equation, and compare the exponent term and solve the equation for the value of variables. There are a few exponent properties that are needed to understand in order to solve this, they are as follows. If a^x = a^y, then x=y where a> 0 and a ≠ 1 note: a^0 =1 We will need to apply the exponential rule a^0 = 1 and then rewrite the equation in the form of z^u = z^v 4^(2x+3) = 1 4^(2x+3) = 4^0 We will then compare the exponent terms on both sides of the equation and simplify it 2x+3=0 2x = -3 x = -/3 2

### Subject: Communication

What are challenges to good communication and how has the development of the internet and social media added a new degree of challenge to the way we communicate?

A common misconception is that the words people use are more important than how they are expressing those words. There may also be a disconnect between communicating to be heard and communicating to hear others, leading to an abundance of talking, but little to no actual listening is being done. Channels of communication play a huge role in the strength of a message and whether or not it is communicating the intended message. A poor or weak communication channel might be text, email, and/or through someone else entirely. A consistent check-in may be helpful in evaluating and making sure all parties involved are experiencing good communication. The internet and social media has revolutionized the ability to connect and stay connected to anyone you want in a multitude of ways. Messages, photos, and videos can travel around the world in literal seconds and reach audiences that far surpass that of many newspapers. Social media/the internet perpetuates the need for instant gratification and instills the need to be taking in content 24/7. Although the quantity of communication has multiplied it has had an extreme tradeoff for minimal quality of communication.
