Mathematics is definitely not the subject that tops the list of favourite study subjects for most of the students.
We are here to bust any myths and notions you may be harbouring as math students. Really, excelling in mathematics is no born talent. It is rather an acquired skill and something that can be achieved by anyone whoever works hard to excel in it.
Alternately, we have some tricks and easy ways to remember math formulae that you may be having a difficult time memorising. Try these 4 tricks to remember maths formulas and you don’t sweat it out before exam time.
Yes. Use your vocal sense to your advantage. Reciting math formulae aloud is a way of self-affirmation, it’s like instructing your mind what it has to remember. Think of phone numbers – how to memorise them. When you recite, your mind finds a way of its own to memorise the numbers in a set sequence. The same is true when you memorise math formulae by saying them out loud.
Verbal recitation also helps the mind create a story-like sequence for the formulae you are trying to memorising. Now, who doesn’t like stories? We all have a great tendency to remember stories – be it fairy tales, novels or even Bollywood scripts. A story-like sequence is a smart way to memorise important steps.
Haven’t you heard of this before? Group study makes even the most difficult of problems easy to break down. When you study together with your friends or study mates, it is a mutual and co-learning process. There will always be concepts that you understand better than your friends and some that they understand better you do. Studying together gives an opportunity for mutual sharing of knowledge and understanding. We learn better when those that teach can step down to our level, and who better than our pals? Studying in a group also tends to keep the distractions at bay. Plus, it offers avenues for regular, healthy breaks too.
Understand the origin of a formula:
Of course, there isn’t just one formula that you have to remember. There are plenty. And chances are high that you will mix up between multiple formula and their derivations. As a result, wrong formulas lead to wrong answers and therefore no marks. But this confusion can be easily avoided only if you remember the origins of each formula. If you understand how a particular formula has been devised that in itself will guide you to properly solve mathematical equations.
Complex formula come from simple ones:
That only goes on to prove that if your basics are solid, you are easily able to tend to complex equations. Understanding and learning simple formulas from the outset will help you with future learning because you will have a better grasp of the basic maths concepts.
These and a lot more other tricks are frequently advised at Manoj Chaudhari’s Math’s Academy. We push our students to do their best and support them with as many resources possible from us. Excelling in maths is really an outcome of practice and we get our students to practice their best.
