Staying Focused on Math

April 8, 2013

It is now mid April and the school year is winding down.  We are all looking forward to summer, but it is important to remember that before summer vacation can start students need to focus on being successful on their final semester exams.  Math is a cumulative subject so the semester final will cover almost everything that was learned since the beginning of the course.  Preparation is essential for students to be successful on their exams.  Here are some helpful tips that will aide in the studying process for any subject area.

-       About 2 weeks before the exam look at previous tests and homework and rework any problems that were incorrect or complicated.

-       Make a list of formulas, definitions, and properties that will be on the final

-       Create a practice exam

-       Study with a friend and quiz each other on the formulas, definitions, and properties

-       The day before the exam get a good night sleep and eat a good breakfast in the morning
