Main Question or Discussion Point
I'm doing extremely well in my math class but I worry that all I'm doing is learning how to do problem a, and not concept behind problem a. What are some signs that you are doing more than just memorizing a set of problems? I wanted to find out how many times I'd need to do something to get a certain result, and used an equation from the class from memory to find out what I needed. I got it right without having to do it again. Is that a sign? Are there others I can look for to make sure I know I really am learning?
