9 Current AIG Student Advice  AIG teacher treats you fairly.  Always listen because it will help you on tests.  Take your time and do it right the first time.  Encourage your child!  Focus on effort, not grades.  Study for any upcoming tests.  Work smarter, not harder!  Believe in yourself!  Think outside of the box.  Do your best! Be a brainiac!  Hope parents can keep up with their student’s math!  Be sure to practice skills that you are not as good at.  Please tell parents not to stress them about coming to AIG.  Students need to try their best because you can earn rewards.  Always show your work so that you can get the problem right. Make sure that you match your work with the problem.  Don’t stress the EOG because they are really easy. Remind students on the morning of the test, that they will do great no matter what!  The homework is a fair amount and most of the time parents would not need to help.  Even if you are having a tough time, remember that you are in AIG for a reason.  Don’t get nervous because the work is just a little harder.  Use your brain and think about the task.  Do not think that they know everything, do not get too confident but do think that you can be successful in AIG!
