How Should I Study Mathematics in Grade 11?

When it comes to math, it is always best to ensure you are putting your best foot forward. Taking the time to study and fully understand the math concepts at hand, can help set you up for success in grade 11. Here at Success Tutorial School we have compiled a list of tricks and tips to help you put your best foot forward when it comes to studying grade 11 math.

Review Prior Concepts

In order to put your best foot forward when beginning a new unit in grade 11 math, it is wise to review the prior learned concerts from grade10. By reviewing past concepts, this solidifies understanding and comprehension so that you may learn the new material presented in grade 11 and understand it more readily. If there are gaps in your understanding of material from grade 10, then you may struggle with learning additional material presented in grade 11.

Get Organized

Another strategy to effectively study math in grade 11 is to get organized and stay organized. Take notes every class, highlight important information and keep your notes in a secure place, like an organized binder. Staying organized allows you to refer back to material and study more easily. If you do not keep your notes, assignments, tests or exams organized, you may struggle to find materials to review before a test or fail an assignment if it goes missing. Always keep track of your materials for math to ensure that you are able to easily refer to them when needed.

Make a Study Schedule

Much like getting organized, it is important to make a solid study schedule. Reviewing concepts taught in class, completing homework and assignments at a regular schedule is important to stay on track for success in grade 11 math. If you create a schedule for studying, you are more likely to adhere to studying and waste less time. Therefore, making a schedule and sticking to it will help you stay on track to success in grade 11 math.

Ask Questions

In order to be successful in math, it is important to always ask questions in order to clarify any misunderstandings. Although some students can be shy when it comes to asking questions in class, it is best to ask questions rather than continue on in confusion. If you do not ask clarifying questions and continue learning without understanding, grasping the additional concepts will become more and more challenging and units progress. It is best to ensure understanding at all steps of your learning by asking questions.

Find a Tutor

An additional strategy to help you study effectively in grade 11 math is to work with a tutor. Much like creating a schedule helps you stay organized, adding a tutor to your study schedule is extremely beneficial. A tutor can help you understand concepts and fill any gaps in understanding to ensure your success in math. But not only can they help with your current comprehension of the material, they can also challenge and push you further to get ahead and have a leg up on your learning. Here at Success Tutorial School we work with our students to meet their needs and ensure their understanding. Not only do we fill gaps in knowledge and understanding, we push our students ahead to ensure they achieve their goals and find success! A tutor is a great choice to ensure a solid foundation in math and promote future success.

Don’t Miss Class

If you want to ensure that you are studying successfully, it is important not to miss your math classes. If you miss math classes, you will have gaps in your understanding and knowledge, making it increasingly difficult to catch up. If you do miss class, it is recommended to meet with your teacher or your peers to catch up on anything missed so that you do not create gaps in your learning.

Use Various Resources

Going to class and using a textbook is a great start to understanding, but it is not the only way to gain comprehension. Many people learn in different ways, so trying different methods of learning can help you be successful in your studies. Some helpful resources include videos on the internet, additional worksheets, practice problems as well as tutoring. Having a tutor can help students that benefit from one on one instruction and practice.

Stay Positive and Motivated

Although easier said than done, it is important to stay positive and stay motivated when it comes to studying. It may be tempting to take the easy route and not study, but this is not helpful when trying to be successful in grade 11 math. Using the tips above can make it more manageable for you to study successfully and less overwhelming than leaving things at the last minute. Take the time to make good study habits and stay motivated throughout the year to ensure your success!

By using these tips and adhering to a schedule, you are bound for success! We highly recommend taking the time in your schedule to add tutoring sessions in order to put your best foot forward and also push you ahead in grade 11 math.
