Math Study Strategies
40 Strategies You Can Use Today!
by Michael Robinson View author's profile page

Overview


Math can be a subject that causes great stress and anxiety. Empowering yourself with strategies can decrease stress and improve your chances for success. This book is designed to be an easy-to-use resource for students to use and teachers to share at the college, high school and junior high school level. It is about "how" to learn math. "What should I do to prepare for class?" "What do I do when I am in class?" "How do I do homework effectively?" "How do I study for a test?" "How do I take the test effectively?" "What do my test results tell me I should do differently?" Math Study Strategies will help students choose the strategies that fit their learning style/personality and improve their test scores. It is an excellent resource that can be included with any math course. Math Study Strategies gives students essential strategies needed in a math course, from selecting a course (at the college level), organizing and participating in class, doing homework effectively, studying for a test, and taking a test and final exam. There are key strategies at each step that can increase student understanding and achievement. This resource will give you a tool box of strategies that you can use today. Math Study Strategies gives teachers ideas about how to integrate these strategies into their daily lessons and the daily lives of their students. Using these strategies can influence students' attitudes toward math and improve their scores by creating an environment that promotes discussion about math and how they learn. It inspires organization, participation, and helps students become part of the learning process.

Description


Students often approach math the same way they approach other courses. Read the book, take some notes, look them over, then hope for the best when the test comes. And, if the test doesn't go well, very little is approached differently the next time around. Math Study Strategies is an easy-to-use resource that helps students learn and implement strategies that are useful during each part of the class 'cycle': choosing a class (in college), preparing for class, participating in class, doing homework, studying for a test, and taking a test. Then, it helps students analyze their test results so they can choose and adapt new strategies to improve the score on their next test. Each section has an explanation about the strategy, why it works, how it could be adapted, and how it can be used in teaching. The strategies students choose will depend on their personality, learning style, and the types of errors they make. Math Study Strategies gives students a tool box of strategies that will improve their confidence, organization, and study skills. It will help them choose and adapt new strategies that will address their own, specific test errors. Teachers can use Math Study Strategies to infuse their teaching and discussions with strategies that will help students become more aware of how to learn math. Students become more engaged by asking themselves (and each other) questions such as "How will I remember this?", or "Why is this a good test question?" or "What can I do if I don't understand this problem right away?" or "What kind of mistakes have I made on this type of problem before?" These strategies help students think of themselves as a 'detective' in the process of solving a problem.
