Home Study Tips:
- Read the question carefully - sometimes it is easier to read the last statement of the question, then go back and read the question from the beginning. Feel free to underline key terms in the question.
- When you are creating a strategy to solve the question, ask yourself if there is a specific math skill that you need to use in your strategy.
- Apply your strategy to the problem to arrive at an answer. Be sure to include your process in your solution - with your process recorded you can see where you went wrong if your answer is wrong (learn from your mistakes !!). If your solution is correct, you have a great example of how to answer that type of question.
- Does the answer seem reasonable? If it does not try a different approach, ask a neighbour, go to extra math help and ask your teacher, ask your uncle Fred....ASK! Do not use 'giving up' as an option - its only Math, how bad can it be?
