# How to learn the mathematics

When I was a student and the teacher would say, “Study your

math test! “I think,” how can I ‘trial’ for the math test? ”

I now realize that the ‘investigation’ is the wrong one. You really need

to ‘practice’ for the math test.

Math test not only need to know the material, they

need to know how to do something with this material.

This change requires a change in your preparation. Unlike other

test, there is no way to prepare for a math test night

before. At that point, you either know the material or you

not, but there’s no faking.

First, it is important to understand the common causes

students loose points on the math test. They are:

1) Do not read the directions! (This is the big one!)

2) Do not write neatly. (ie lost a number of

tens place for the one who should be in the hundreds of

3) understand math vocabulary.

4) do not do their homework regularly to get appropriate

practice.

5) Do not know basic addition, subtraction,

multiplication and / or division facts their fluent.

Simply be aware that each of these factors can affect the

rating is half the battle, but as you probably

guess, there’s more you can do

** Action Plan **

Step 1 :. Know the basic math facts! There are hundreds of

math on the internet to help you practice the facts.

They are the foundation of mathematics and will continue to hold

you back if you can not answer each of them (0-10) in

split-second

Step 2 :. When you do your homework, remind yourself that you

are actually “learning” for the next math test. Circle all

problems that you do not know how to do and ask for help

class the next day. As you correct your homework in class,

circle all the problems that you did wrong and take notes on how to

make them right

Step 3 :. Three nights for your test, learn math

vocabulary and doing 10-15 practice problems with the “wrong”

answers your homework. Repeat the next night with

different problems homework

Step 4 :. The night before the test, they dear

vocabulary and make one problem from each night’s

homework

Step 5 :. When you first get the test, write down any

formulas or definitions you are afraid you might forget

Step 6 :. Read the instructions! Twice

Step 7 :. Write neatly. Keep the numbers right

place-value

Step 8 :. When you are stuck, do as much as you can (you can

get partial credit), should drop and move on.

Come back to it if you have time

Step 9 :. After testing is gone, make sure that you understand

any mistakes and how to correct them. If you are not

understand the subject now, you will continue to have

problem in the following sections.

** Finally **

Math can be challenging because everything you learn builds

the knowledge that you should have learned before. If you lose

something, it will catch up with you. However, if you

– Learn math facts,

– Treat your homework as it is the practice test and study
