5 Study Tips for Math (Part 2)

Posted on January 20, 2011 at 1:26 AM

1.Distinguishing similarities vs. Differences

Go over the titles of each lesson and be able to distinguish how they are different    and similar.
*How was yesterdays homework lesson different than today?
*What is the difference between problems in each subsection of your homework?
* How is this chapter related to and different from the previous chapter?
2. Be able to explain these differences.
*Explain what the difference is out loud.
            This helps to organize what you have learned.
Perhaps you are more visual.
*Break problems down into steps and in your own words describe what you did at each step. Color code steps.

3. Representative Problems

After you complete your homework, pick out a problem that is representative of each subsection and be able to explain how to do it. Again, explain what steps you took and distinguish how this problem is different or similar to other problems in the section.
4. Homework

Do all your homework problems.
*Don’t skip a problem because it is too easy or overlook it when studying for a test. Sometimes we think we understand or know the problem and at test time we go blank. We go blank because we don’t have experience doing the problem. The problem is familiar but we cant generate how to do it.
5. Review for the Test
*Don’t wait till the last minute as this may be overwhelming.
*However, do review everything the night before the test.  If you have time, review the day of or right before the test. This helps to activate the material in your short term memory and is also called the recency effect.
*Do practice problems, especially problems that you find challenging.
*Also, review problems that are representative of each section.

I think most of us hate math where we have to deal with numbers and formulas. This for sharing this blog to everyone, for giving us tips to make it easy for us. It was a very wonderful feeling that there is someone who is willing to help others that are in need. Having the knowledge into something is great and sharing it is the greatest thing. I hope that you will continue helping others by making something easy for them.
