## "Lrn 2 wrt fast b4 u go ntz!"

You will write faster if you use symbols and abbreviations when you take notes in class or from a text. Here are
some commonly used symbols and abbreviations you can use to create your own system of math shorthand .

Complete the Abbreviations column by multiply ing-fractions/worksheets-adding-subtracting.html">adding your own abbreviations for the terms and phrases listed in the
Meaning column on the right. Use the blank spaces to add other symbols and abbreviations you create. Be sure to
write down the meaning of each symbol and abbreviation so you can recall it later.
