Five Easy Tips to Learn
1) - Before any students can learn maths, which is a combination of
numbers, symbols and mathematical expressions, he has to relate the facts
together in order to find meaning to them. Relationship between the facts can
cover real-life applications also. This create a sense of purpose to drive
learning motivation. This step is useful for later part in learning maths.
2) - Here the students have to identify the
mathematical facts and concepts that he has to retain and memorize in order to
solve maths questions. This step is crucial in that remembering all the
mathematical facts and concepts within the topic taught will only confuse and
weaken the learning process.
3) - In this step, the ability to solve maths
questions is the focus and objective. There are two phases in this step. The
first step is for him to practice, by himself, maths questions with the
reference materials laid out in front of him for initial trying. This is to
build confidence and understanding of the mathematical concepts and relationship
between facts. The second part, which is very important, is to keep all
reference materials and practice again without any external help. This will
expose any wrong understanding or obstacles not known in the initial practice
4) - Learning maths at this step involves more
practice (alone without help) but now with wider scope of coverage. This is to
enable learners to experience all possible situations related to the topics
learned. Practice more will generate more confidence and better self-esteem.
5) - This step is to clarify any doubts
encountered in previous steps or to align back any misunderstood mathematical
concepts or procedural steps in solving the maths questions. Here the process of
alignment is iterative in that the final outcome has to tally with facts and
concepts to determine true understanding and learning. Practice again with the
same level of questioning to ensure learning takes place. Motivation will be
greatly enhance if the outcome is positive.
