Students may become easily frustrated and just move on to the next topic hoping they'll understand this lesson/unit. That is the worst thing a student can do. In math, the next topic you learn will relate to and sometimes rely on your knowledge of the previous unit, so never move forward until you're confident with all previous lessons.","content_type":"","title":"","shrink":null},{"type":"particle","particle_id":1272872,"object_id":"houstonn_1368656337","particle_type":"bodytext","picture":null,"text":"2) When doing a lesson always challenge yourself with problems and check your answers for practice. If students do this they will build their confidence in sections, and be less likely to forget steps. Students always want to just get their work over with and move onto the next unit but in doing so you forget how to do things in math over time.","content_type":"","title":"","shrink":null},{"type":"particle","particle_id":1272905,"object_id":"houstonn_1368656556","particle_type":"bodytext","picture":null,"text":"3) When looking at a math problem never try to do it in your head just by looking at the equation on the paper. You must write down everything your doing so you firstly know what your next step will be, and secondly you can trace your steps backwards incase you do something wrong. Just by looking at an equation and trying to do it in your head will most likely confuse you leading you to the wrong answer.","content_type":"","title":"","shrink":null},{"type":"particle","particle_id":1273034,"object_id":"houstonn_1368657192","particle_type":"bodytext","picture":null,"text":"4) When doing your homework or studying for math try to do it in a quiet place.

Writing horizontally will be much more confusing and harder to follow on paper, not knowing when one part of the problem begins and ends.

In algebra if you draw a picture of what the question is asking, even if it's a word problem, it will help you better understand.
