Examine the optical illusions above. What's the point? Well, do you trust yourself well enough to see the subtle or not so apparent as well as the obvious? Can you see symbols in a story without being told that they are there? Can you solve a mathematical problem without being told what the steps are? Can you explain an experiment or the causes of a war without an answer book? A good student develops judgment which he or she can depend on - and this is done through hard work, attention to details and the desire to know. If you don't understand something, don't let it go. Ask questions - of your classroom teachers and of the teachers in the Study Center. We are all dedicated to helping you understand so that you can more and more depend on your judgment in life. That's what education is all about . . . but you have to be part of the process. Be an active learner, and you will be rewarded, by being prepared for your future.
