Your grades will be especially important in landing your first job, or when applying to graduate school. To be a successful student requires certain skills; but, these are skills that can be learned.  http://www.academictips.org/acad/beastudent.html

Successful students exhibit a combination of successful attitudes and behaviors as well as intellectual capacity. http://homepage.usask.ca/~clv022/success.htm

The Common Core State Standards in mathematics were built on progressions: narrative documents describing the progression of a topic across a number of grade levels, informed both by research on children’s cognitive development and by the logical structure of mathematics.
