Because **good study skills** are required to **understand mathematics**. The reason **good math study skills** are necessary because **math builds on prior lessons**.

If you do not understand the current lesson, you will probably not be able to understand the next lesson.

**Understanding Understanding Math Requires the previous section**

In other courses, the understanding can not cause the front section in the next section. For example, in the story, if you do not remember the facts or understand the Revolutionary War, this does not mean you can not understand, and the quiz about the Civil War. That just does not work in mathematics.

**5 ways that will not work you study in math**

## 1 Memorization alone will not work

Apart from the need to know the previous section, memorization alone is not the solution of mathematical problems to work. [IMPORTANT see exception below].

Memorization is not of itself, help you to understand the math. Memorization is not possible, will help to resolve your knowledge to various problems on the same topic.

The basic memorization is not working in mathematics, because it’s the same question are many ways to provide for. Instead of memorizing what is needed is a thorough understanding of the concept, so that no matter how the question you are asked to be able to figure it out. You can not memorize every way about a topic could be made. Even if memorization does not work, when asked, the knowledge of a concept in a completely different context than what you have stored.

As in the story above example, memorizing able to work. For example, in the story if you were the facts of the War of Independence by heart, you have a good chance to quiz on the War of Independence.

### Exceptions to Memorization

Math vocabulary should be stored. Without knowing the meaning of a word can not be properly solved math problems.

A major cause of confusion is if a common word is used in a **math problem**. The same common word has a different meaning in mathematics. For example, the word difference.

### The difference of the words often used:

Difference is usually to 2 (or more) to compare and find things that are not the same between the 2 things. As in what is the difference between a miniature poodle and a standard poodle. Response, the difference between a miniature and standard poodle the size is off. The word size is the answer.

#### Well, the word difference in the mathematics used:

Difference in math means the response you get when you solve a subtraction problem. As the difference of 5 – 2 3rd The number “3” is the difference in mathematics. The difference in math is not that number has 5 x + x + x + x + x items and number has x 2 + x items. Also, the difference in mathematics as in 5-2, the number three (3).

#### 2 Cramming does not work

Math is more difficult to learn? For some it can be tricky. Math a requires a the deep understanding a of the in concepts. Reaching this deep understanding of concepts requires a unified approach for learning math. To really math, you need to understand what is taught in math before.

Trying to learn by cramming math will not work. Math lessons build on each other. Cramming is when you try to learn before considering the necessary material for a test in the few days. Cramming does not allow you to really get the concepts. Is understanding and may be able to apply the concepts in any context which are required to be successful in mathematics.

#### 3 Missing classes do not work

Missing days is a reliable way to fall behind. Missing many classes you are almost guaranteed to not get the concept and can so far behind that it seems overwhelming to catch up to fall. High absenteeism is a major reason students fail. You may be confused by the lack of class 1.

#### 4 Falling behind in your studies does not work

Here’s another way to have a high probability to fail reliably. In other words, if you want to fail in mathematics, not the homework, do not do and let classwork through sections that you do not understand go. Therefore, you could have attended all classes and not learned the knowledge you need to know.

It seems obvious to say that if you fall in arrears on your education, it is increasingly difficult to catch up. And since math builds on each lesson there is to learn not only the current lesson, but all the lessons that came before this current lesson.

#### 5 Daydreaming or just filling worksheets

Sad to say, but only to participate in the classes is not enough to pass math. If you dream and SMS are not paying attention, you will not have the concept.

And if you fill in worksheets without having to work the problem, you are not the concept. If a student copies the answers does not work, the problem itself, the student has not mastered the material. Yes work together a the to solve the worksheet a he that is a different. If you are working to solve the problem participate with your classmates, then you learn the material. But you’re not fooling anyone by simply copying the answers.

Just because you show up to class is no reason the teacher you should happen. And because you pass in each worksheet is no reason you should happen. Passed to the math class you are required to prove that you know the material.
