1) Math problems (30 minutes, Saturday morning)
2) Read Chapter 6 Odyssey (40 minutes, Saturday night)
3) Study for Science quiz (40 minutes, Sunday afternoon)"

" I take out what I need and I read over it, picking out the important things. Then I write down the important things and read over them until I'm satisfied I know them pretty well."
