Chalk Talk: How to Improve in Math Class
Many kids struggle in math class. The concepts can be confusing and the applicability of some of what you learn in math may be lost on you. If you need to perform better in math class, there are two easy things you can do to help yourself out. First, make sure you practice. Getting better at math is not all that different from getting better at basketball or playing the piano – you have to practice! If you have trouble with your homework, ask someone for help. Your teacher, your parents or your classmates are all good choices. Second, don’t just focus on memorizing the steps to solving a problem. Strive to really understand what each step involves and why. Math is not a subject that will allow you to just memorize facts – you have to really know what you’re doing! To help you better understand what you’re learning try to explain what you’re doing to someone else. If you can teach a friend how to solve a problem, you will be well on your way to doing better in math class.
