Studying Mathematics
Math is Not a Spectator Sport, you must get involved! r. clark
1. Math is about concepts and not necessarily the problems. The concepts are related to you in the course and daily objectives. For example: 'The learner will solve quadratic functions and equations by using the factoring technique.' This is what you need to strive to understand that day; not necessarily problem number 17. The problems are just for practicing with the objective, and some problems are more difficult than others.
2. Learn the rules and concepts of math at each level (what does it mean, not just saying words and writing/drawing symbols). Don't just use the facts of math. Learn them deeply (both backward and forward, where possible and logical). That means do not be lazy, such as counting on your fingers. Not bothering to really absorb/learn such facts, applications and meanings properly will make more advanced math difficult or impossible, until you go back and learn the basics.
3. Learn the vocabulary words so they become natural to you. Math vocabulary is important, if your answer should be a binomial then it should not have three terms.
4. Try to work ahead in the assignments of math problems by your teacher. This may seem like extra work, but it will be an advantage.
5. Watch helpful videos when possible.
6. Have a plan of attack for each worded (story) problem. Decide what the problem really means and what kinds of operation will be needed. Don't just start adding, subtracting, multiplying, dividing.
7. When possible draw diagrams, sketches, graphs of parts of the the math problem to be solved.
8. Study the back of book where problems are worked completely and the examples in each section before you start the homework.
9.Check your work, as you go and at the end of the quiz or test.
10.Ask for help from your Peers who understand.
11. Don't just nod your head when you have no understanding. Ask questions in class. Math teachers are taught to teach at full speed until they hearr the questioins. The questions you and your classmates ask allow the teacher to figure out what he or she need to reteach.
12. Most importantly, alway's
take John Cena's advice.

General Study Tips for all Classes
1. Everything is easier if you have a motivation to learn and a good attitude.
2. Every subject you study requres concentration and organization. Put the cell phone and gaming device away. Have paper, pencil, book, and anything else you might need within reach.
3. Set small goal for your studying. Tell yourself you will study for thirty minutes before
you turn on the TV.
4. Pay attention in class, and take your teacher's wisdom home in the form of notes and examples.
If they wrote it on the board or showed you a video then it is probably going to be on the test.
Recopy your notes at home.
5. Ask questions when you don't understand. Listen carefully to others who ask questions in class
as they may have the same problems you will have.
