We’re in the middle of holiday season and that means new year’s resolutions are right around the corner! What do you plan to improve on in the new year? Eat healthier or stick to an exercise regimen? How about something that will help you succeed academically and expand your career? We’re talking about finally conquering math. With our help, you’ll break down the “math wall” that is holding you back.
MathHelp.com is the other way to learn math — we offer the one-on-one learning experience that everyone benefits from when learning math. Our approach was developed by a teacher from one of the top private schools in the country, with the goal to create a math course made available to everyone that’s comparable to a $20,000-a-year private school education, but for a fraction of the cost.
Whether you’re currently struggling in high school Geometry or studying for your teaching accreditation, we’re here to help you reach your goals in 2020.
Plan it Out
Benjamin Franklin once said that “by failing to prepare, you are preparing to fail.” This rings especially true for math! If you don’t map out how you intend to improve, you’ll never truly conquer math. As soon as you register for the 2020 class, set your goals. It’s important to clarify the main objective (Finishing this class with an A average) as well as smaller goals (turn in all homework on time, keep a B average on quizzes or tests). This strategy helps you break down the semester into smaller goals that are less daunting!
Your study habits are incredibly important for any new subject you want to learn. Start by analyzing your current habits. If you struggle to make yourself sit down and study or have a history of procrastinating, it’s unrealistic to expect that you’ll dedicate an hour each day to studying. It’s also unlikely that you can continually put off studying until the last minute and somehow ace the course. Here’s the good news. Understanding math conceptually tends to be cumulative, so putting in a little time, consistently, really adds up! If you make a point to keep up with homework on a daily basis — it will reinforce what you’ve learned during the course. Each day, dedicate some time to your homework and review your notes before picking it up again so that the material is fresh!
Know When to Ask for Help
Getting behind in a math course can be frustrating. In most courses a foundation is laid at the beginning of the semester and from that point onwards, concepts are built on top of previous lessons. If you happen to fall behind or can’t master a major concept, you’re likely to struggle from that point onwards. Our advice? If you’re having trouble with a lesson, get help ASAP! For MathHelp students, we suggest spending extra time on the particular lesson and viewing all of the example problems before moving forward. Math is hard enough, don’t make it worse by having to play catch up while simultaneously learning new material.
Utilize the Resources Available to You
In order to conquer math in 2020, utilize all of the resources at your disposal. If you’re taking traditional classes, your teacher is there to help you understand concepts and how to apply them. If you’re homeschooling or are unsatisfied with your learning experience at school — lean on us! Each of our complete online courses includes:
