So last week…we discussed how to study for a math test to make sure you know you know the information.
This week, I want to give you another technique that I also suggested to my student in studying for a math test.
First, make a chart like the one below: the concepts are running down the left hand side and whatever information you think is important go across the top. I have a few suggested in the picture below:
You’ll notice that I have a “don’t forget to…!” row.
So many students say to me, “Oh no, I understand the problem, I just forgot to…” Because math is so detailed and precise if you do forget one little step the whole problem gets thrown off…and again we want to train the brain to catch the mistake and then correct it.
As always, I’m curious to know if you used this technique and how it went for you! If you would like more suggestions for study habits and tips please feel free to reach out.
Also, if you are or you know any young adults that would like some support, please contact me about the Adulting for Young Adult Support Group.
Wishing you a wonderful week!
