1. Focus on Understanding Concepts
Take the time to make sure you understand why you're doing what you're doing.
2. Go Over New Concepts and Practice Problems
Jumping directly into solving problems can lead to frustration and confusion. Try to study your textbooks and pay attention in class.
3. Solve Extra Problems
Practice makes perfect. If you are struggling with a particular kind of problem, you can improve by working on solving additional problems.
4. Change Word Problems Up
Some students have a harder time than others with understanding math word problems. You can read these problems out loud, or even draw the problems out. Hearing the problem or being able to visualize it can give you the help you need to improve this math skill.
5. Apply Math to Real Life
Understanding why and how math is important can give you the motivation you need to keep applying yourself.
