Everyone hears the word Algebra and they begin to shake in their boots. They see those unknown variables and give up before they even start. Some formulas are very easy like solving for X in a simple problem, i.e. X + 2 = 4. That was simple and the X doesn’t look so scary anymore. I’m going to give you some tips on how to get over this fear.
Learning the basics of any subject can give you the edge you need to understand more advanced problems that you might come across.
The term “practice makes perfect” is so popular because it’s true. If you keep doing something over and over again, you’re bound to get good at it sooner or later. Which would cut your workload half because you wouldn’t have to take so long to figure out the problems.
Instead of sitting in class doodling on your notebook, use that notebook to take notes and write down the problems to refer to later. This will give you an idea of how to do the problems and show you what you don’t understand.
Ask for help if you don’t understand how to do your homework. A teacher, classmate, parents, even the Internet is a great source to help you learn Algebra. This can give you the boost needed to help yourself complete your homework faster and in no time.
This sounds simple but most students are stressed when they sit down to do their homework, which makes the process seem longer than it should. After you come home from school, sit down and start your work. This is the best time because the information is still fresh in your head and if you need help, you don’t want to be calling someone at eleven at night because you procrastinated.
The only person standing your way of learning how to do the problems right, is you. If you don’t put in the time and effort to learn, it will take you forever to get your work done.
I know math can be so scary, I had to pass a class in it and I had been out of school for ten years. I was terrified but after practice and hard work, I did great and you can too.
