Chapter 32. Math Study Skills Tips

Tip 1 Because it is difficult to take notes on the instructor’s explanation and copy the problem off the board, you may want to tape record the instructor’s explanation.
Tip 2 Copy all the theorems, principles, and definitions exactly. Do not paraphrase or condense anything that is written on the board. Also be sure to copy the instructor’s explanation. Draw arrows to the instructor’s explanation for each step of the problem.
Tip 3 Rewrite math notes each day in ink for clarity and permanence. Neatness is especially important because of the need for accuracy.
Tip 4 Rework model problems over and over until you can do them without stopping. This is the crucial step that most students overlook. Instead of figuring out what is being taught in the model problem, they jump right into doing homework, and end up reworking problems several times.
Tip 5 Plan to work at least two hours on math homework for every hour of class time. Since you may need to spend ten to twelve hours working on math class assignments, set your priorities carefully and take a lighter academic load if possible.
Tip 6 Learn the five R’s of math shown on the next page.
