Performing Math faster during examinations

Examinations! What is the first thing that strikes your mind when you think of exams? Is it the scores? Or is it the subject? Is it the time allotted to complete the exam??? Yes, the time is an important factor to be considered during exams, especially in subjects like math. Math questions are lengthy and tests a student on his/her speed and accuracy. It therefore becomes necessary to perform math faster in exams to be able to score good marks.

But, how does it become possible?
Follow these tips to ensure math success.

1.      Divide your time for each question
Manage your time and allot a particular time for each question or section of the paper. If you fail to do so, you may leave the question paper incomplete in spite of you knowing the solutions.

2.      Start with what you know the best
When you do so, you become confident while proceeding with the questions. As you approach the questions which were initially scary for you will automatically become simpler as you start solving them.

3.      Jot down the key formulas and rules on one separate sheet
When you note down the important formulas on one sheet (or in the rough column) right while starting the paper, it will help you refer to them instantly. This saves time to recall formulas in the mid with too many solutions going on in the mind.

4.      Perform mental arithmetic
Ensure that you know the tables well. Most of the calculations will become simpler when you know the tables and mental calculations become faster and accurate. It helps not using pen and paper thus saving time by reducing scratch work.

Math practice: Is it boring for you?

Studying mathematics for many children is often accompanied by boredom and a feeling of repulsion. Mathematics is a subject that requires high level of understanding, attention and interest. Only then it becomes possible for a child to score and succeed in the subject.

Cited in this post are 3 ways by which math can be fun for students.

1.      Solve activity or game based mathematics
Games are the most interactive platform for kids as they involve them completely and there isn’t any scope of distractions. Activities and games indirectly enable a child practice basic (and advanced) math operations with ease, thereby increasing their calculation speed, accuracy, and concentration skills. Boredom is then, no more a concern.

2.      Exercise and Relax
Math is not only a play of mental activities, but it is a lot more. For efficiently solving math problems, it is necessary to have a healthy mind in a healthy body. It can be attained through good nutrition and diet, proper exercise and required amount of rest. If kids stay healthy, they are more adaptable to lessons being taught in class and become comfortable with math as a subject.

3.      Encourage participation and Open discussions
Make the student speak what’s on their mind and discuss their thoughts. Do not restrict them from sharing what they feel. Engage them into classroom and home activities that are participative and offer appreciation for their role.

·         Visualize and generalize the numeric or non-numeric patterns in different type of questions
·         Work, discover and apply concepts in creative ways to derive solutions to a problem
·         Search for alternative solutions to complex and lengthy problems
·         Apply strategies that encourage mental computations to increase one’s efficiency
·         Be self assured to use math formulas and concepts

All this and lot more can be achieved easily by taking up the Vedic math course. The course teaches the students to apply mental math and speed math techniques to become proficient in dealing with numerical problems.
