Simple Math Exam Tips

When it comes to exams, Mathematics can surely be one of the most dreaded exams. Not because it involves calculations and logics, but because of other related points.

So, we have compiled some tips for you. Look into it and steady your focus on studies only.

1.    Read every question properly

Before starting your paper, it is important to read every question properly. This is important because you don’t want to get mixed up and waste time on writing the wrong answer.

2.    Draw carefully

If you are about to draw something, try to visualize it once before making it. If you have it in your mind, you can get it down on paper easily.

3.    Calculator

Mathematics is all about calculations. If you don’t have a calculator, you are wasting your time sitting for the exam. Unless, of course, the use of a calculator is restricted.

But if calculators are allowed, make sure you keep it in your bag. However, it is suggested that you should carry an extra calculator.

Want to buy one? Buy it online. Before purchasing it, check these coupons.

4.    Look for the extra information

Well, if you are confused and feel that you are doing it wrongly, it is better to look for the extra information given there. Some questions are tricky and test your mathematics skills to the core. So, look for the extra information given there.

5.    Logic

Math questions are logical. Be sure that you know the basics and are answering the questions accordingly.

6.    Be confident

While answer math questions, you need to be confident. Every step can get you marks. So, don’t worry about the final answer. Try and focus on getting your steps right.

Some experts suggest that reading books about self-confidence should help boost your level of confidence while writing math exams. So, if you are planning to buy one for yourself, use these coupons from Chameleonjohn and get that book at a discounted price.

7.    Look for an approximate answer

In most of the questions, you will not get an ideal number in your answer. So, look for an approximate answer (should be reasonable too). The final answer should be closer to your guess.

8.    If you think you are wrong, you…

If you think your answer is a disaster, but you are unable to find a mistake, you have two available options.

·         Leave that question and move on to the next one.

·         Take a clean piece of paper and try it again, from the start.

9.    Use calculator if you need it

There are a number of simple calculations that can be done mentally. If you are sure that the answer you have got with that mental calculation is easy and correct, still use a calculator. With this, you will be confident that your calculations are not wrong.

10.  Watch

Always wear a watch for your math exams. You need to time each answer and be sure that you will complete the paper on time.

Need a new watch? Use this coupon and be sure that you get that watch at a price lower than the regular.

How To Encourage Kids To Write Their Homework

Most children do not like to do homework. That is a fact. Kids are just too playful to just sit and study. Bribery, ultimatums and punishment won't do anything if you want to make your kid pick up that pencil and start doing homework. If your child is struggling with homework, you just have to make them motivated.

First of all, you need to establish a study routine. Set the time for homework and stick to that schedule. Don't decide about learning time by yourself. Let your children decide what time is best for them. That way they won't feel like you are pressuring them. Invite your child to also choose where will he or she do their homework. If they prefer the kitchen table, let them learn there. Older kids might prefer to learn in their rooms, so be sure to check them from time to time so you know they are really doing their homework.

Help your kids. But, don't insist on helping them. Help only if your child asks for it. They have to feel like they are in charge. When your kids are about to give up because they don't know what to do next, encourage him or her by helping them just a little. Offer support and guidance and help them interpret assignment instructions. Don't tell them the answer, rather ask them what parts they don't understand or what they think the answer is. You will help them a little, but they will have to figure out the answers themselves.

At the end of their work time, check each piece of homework to be sure it is completed. Don't use rewards. Bribery will not get you anywhere. Replace money or toys with encouraging verbal rewards. Make positive comments about the behavior you want to encourage. Praise good work!

Help them organize. We are not born with great organization skills. They have to be learned. You can help your children by teaching them to use some kind of personal planner to help them get organized. Encourage them to keep a daily homework notebook, which can help you both to know exactly what assignments they have and when is the due date.

Work together. If you brought some work home from the office, do it same time your kid is doing the homework. It will show them that there are assignments for everyone later in life too. Do not turn on the television, even if your favorite tv show is on. If the television or the computer are on, little or no work will get done. Only thing you can add is some music, because it can help your kid to focus more effectively. As you watch your child work, compliment him on something that he does well. He will try to do even better next time!

 Doing homework will help your kids develop a sense of responsibility, pride when a job is well done and a work ethic. That's why homework is important and you as a parent have to do your part to make your children motivated!
