Mathematics has specific terminology with a lot of vocabulary.
We suggest you create Notes or Flashcards with all the concepts, terminology and definitions you need to know.
When you’re practising with these problems, it’s important to work through the process for each solution.
If you have made any mistakes, you should review them and understand where your problem-solving skills let you down. It is much better and rewarding in the long-run to focus on understanding the process and logic that is involved.
Some love it but, if we’re being honest, most people hate studying maths.
The importance of maths for students has never been greater.
And, while there are educators who oppose math “tricks” for valid reasons, proponents point to benefits such as increased confidence to handle difficult problems.

Understanding how you approached the problem and where you went wrong is a great way of becoming stronger and avoiding the same mistakes in the future. This will help you understand how you should approach such problems in the future.
Remember that Maths is a sequential subject so it’s important to have a firm understanding of the key concepts that underpin a mathematical topic before moving on to work on other, more complex solutions which are based on understanding the basics.
