Dates, numbers, and statistics are sometimes important details to remember. Out of the three, dates are usually the most important. They help you build a timeline of events if you’re studying a lesson that teaches about a massive event such as in History courses or Politics courses. By noting down dates, you can build a timeline and see the unfolding of the event in its entirety. Second, numbers and statistics are useful for arguments. Listing these down are useful as reference to further research. However, doing independent research should be able to mitigate the implications of not noting down these types of information.
To note down dates, numbers, and statistics, building a timeline would be useful. This will allow you to visually represent your lesson in a way that is chronological and structured. By doing this, you can see the casualty between concepts or events to allow you to understand the lesson better.
