Unlike other subjects, following Maths requires you to be focused from the beginning. If you fail to understand the basics then you are obviously going to fail to understand practically anything after that point. So here are some tips you could use to grasp Maths better.
When you take time and study each and every question present under a particular lesson in this subject, you will come to realize that the basic thing hidden deep down in it is always the same. It is just the fancy and complex words used to describe the question that makes it terrifying and challenging. Even when it comes physics it is the same. The more you analyze questions and keep practicing them over and over again the easier it would become for you to understand the subject even without o level physics tuition.
There is nothing in life that you can learn without mistakes. It is only a person who is dumb who would want to live life without any mistakes! Mistakes teach you a lot especially if you learn to learn from them, otherwise they are only going to be a mark of shame in your life. Similarly, even in this subject you need to make mistakes to understand what you did wrong and where. So, if you make a mistake take time and review it. Do it all over again and find similar sums and try them out as well. This way you would not only be able to understand the method behind but also the reasons for it. Thus, making this subject much easier!
Learn to master
Every subject has key concepts. And these concepts are practically the bases for the entire subject. Therefore, learning to master it by understanding the method and reasoning behind would help you apply it better. Don’t forget that unlike other subjects Maths is sequential. And so, you need to apply different theories, concepts and equations to arrive to one answer. Therefore, making an effort to grasp things from the beginning is essential.
If you are unsure of something or have a doubt over why a particular sum is solved in a particular way, try to clear it then and there. Ask your teacher or friend and try to understand the reasoning behind it accurately rather than drawing up your own conclusions. This way as the subject or sum develops you wouldn’t be left helpless in the middle.
Try the above tips yourself and overcome your fear of Maths in ease. After all, it is a fun subject if you learn how to do it right!
