How can I study "math" on my own?
1.) Math is not like reading a book you just cannot read it over. You must actually do the problems over again to see them worked out on paper.
2.) Make a notecard for each concept, procedure, or formula that you must remember, then study the notecards until they are memorized.
3.) Redo all questions in class that you had to write with a green pen, which were corrections during class. As you re-attempt these questions, make mental notes or written notes as to what steps need to be taken, ie. How do I get started? Remember the procedure you need to complete to solve each type of equation.
4.) Practice, practice, practice.
5.) Your reward will be obtaining the goal that you set out to achieve.
