"Great things are not done by impulse, but by a series of small things brought together."
| This is one of the reasons why it isn’t good to just get by with a “C” in a|
math class. With only “C” knowledge, you’re probably going to get mangled
in the next course. You really do need to know it at an “A” or “B” level to do
well (or even survive) later.
I’m usually not a proponent of memorizing stuff in math. You definitely
should not just try to memorize how to do a problem. It’s best for you to
remember how to do the problem by understanding how the problem works.
But, there are some things you have to memorize – like your times tables
and the quadratic formula. (By the way, if you still don’t know your times
tables, you are not alone. Please download some free flash cards from
Coolmath4kids.com and learn those puppies! You will be so much more
comfortable when you know them well.) When there is real memorizing to be
done, I’m a huge fan of flash cards! I used them all through my math classes
and they really helped. One of the great things is that you can take them with
you everywhere you go. Have to stand in line at the DMV? Learn some math
while doing it!
