USING
THE CORNELL METHOD WITH SLIDES

The notetaking method
described above works well with the slide presentations used in
class. Powerpoint® slides
in class are arranged so that each topic page (slide) has a
main point followed by a "proof." The main
point, or assertion, represents the "phrase" or short
sentence in the "notes" column. The majority of
the slide, the "proof," may be listed in the example
column, if it's a formula. It also may be listed in the
notes column if it contains some additional significant information.
Below are the two slides from which the first line in the
example notes page above derives its content.
The slide above indicates
the topic, series circuits, and the assertion that "all loads
are in a line." The drawing is used by the instructor
to guide the discussion visually and auditorially to show that
the assertion is true (the "proof").
The slide above asserts
that current is common to all loads in a series circuit and, again,
the instructor uses the schematic to guide the discussion visually
and auditorially to show that the assertion is valid (the "proof").
The slide
shown above asserts the formula for voltage in its various forms.
The instructor uses a different slide for the proof. This
slide represents how a formula was entered into the sample notes
page above.
The slide
above is the one that begins to "prove" the Ohm's Law
formulas indicated in other slides. The "notes column"
will likely have just "Figure the Formula," and the
right column will contain the formula wheel drawing.
