It may help if you start by recalling memories of learning mathematics and making a record of them in your notebook. Studying the course will add to your personal store of material, either through undertaking mathematical activity yourself or by introducing mathematical activities to learners.
When you work on an activity, get into the habit of having your notebook to hand to record your thinking. Use the notebook in any way that helps you to think about the work you have done. Some people find it helpful to divide a page into two columns using the left-hand side to record memories and descriptions of incidents, and the right-hand side for reflection and commentary.
