Do I Have to Cite EVERYTHING I Write Down?!
The short answer is no! You don't need to cite facts considered "common knowledge". This includes:

Facts that can be found in more than 3 sources
Historical dates
Opinions ("I think..." or "I feel...")
Established information (periodic table, math formulas, nutrition info)
There are three different types of notes:
1. Summary: Condenses the original resource into one or two sentences. Used to state a big concept in a few words.

2. Paraphrase: Restates the author's ideas in your own words. This is the most commonly used in note-taking.

3. Quotations: An exact copy of an author's words that uses quotation marks. Should be used sparingly, when something is particularly meaningful.
