Studying Math is Different from Studying Other Subjects

Math is learned by doing problems. Do the homework. The problems help you learn the formulas and techniques you do need to know, as well as improve your problem-solving prowess.

A word of warning: Each class builds on the previous ones, all semester long. You must keep up with the instructor: attend class, read the text, and do homework every day. Falling a day behind puts you at a disadvantage. Falling a week behind puts you in deep trouble.

A word of encouragement: Each class builds on the previous ones, all semester long. You're always reviewing previous material as you do new material. Many of the ideas hang together. Identifying and learning the key concepts means you don't have to memorize as much.

Math is a skill. To develop that skill you must practice. Do your homework in a quiet place, similar to the classroom if possible. Do not spend "hours" on one problem. If you cannot solve a problem, look for a similar problem in your notes or your text. If you still cannot solve a problem, skip it and work on other problems. Try the problem later. Many times you will come up with an idea after you have done something else for a while. If you still cannot solve the problem, get some help.

Math Study Skills: Active Learning

Be actively involved in your education! Here are some tips to "take charge" of learning in a math class:

  • Take responsibility for studying, recognizing what you do and don't know, and knowing how to get your instructor to help you with what you don't know.
  • Attend class every day and take complete notes. Instructors formulate test questions based on material and examples covered in class as well as on those in the text.
  • Be an active participant in the classroom. Get ahead in the book; try to work some of the problems before they are covered in class. Anticipate what the Instructor's next step will be.
  • Ask questions in class! There are usually other students wanting to know the answers to the same questions you have.
  • Go to office hours and ask questions. The instructor will be pleased to see that you are interested and you will be actively helping yourself.
  • Keep a glossary of math terms as they are presented in class. Math is a language; maintain a list of terms to keep you involved and learning.
  • Show ALL work; do not skip steps, even on homework.
  • Good study habits throughout the semester make it easier to study for tests.
