In Part 1 , I said that you need to practise Maths regularly if you want to be confident and good at it. I recommended that you spent at least 20 minutes a day revising and practising Maths.
What do you actually do during the 20 minutes? Here are some of the things you can do during your 20 minutes Maths revision time:
1. Look at the problems/questions already discussed or done in lessons. Examine the method and the reasoning behind the solution. Now without looking at the answer given by the teacher in class, try answering the questions yourself. If you get stuck, look over the solution again and then try once more without referring to the solution.
2. Try out similar questions given in your textbook or workbook. You can also try to answer questions you got wrong in your test or homework.
3. Attempt to answer exam style questions. You can get these at the end of a chapter in your textbook or you can look for them on the internet. This will give you more confidence and improve your understanding of the topic.
4. Use interactive exercises given on certain websites. This will not only make the revision sessions interesting but it will give you an opportunity to apply your mathematical skills. I have included and will continue to include links to interactive activities through this blog.
The overall idea is that you are spending time revising or practising your Maths. Any effort put in will certainly produce good results.
