One of the questions we hear a lot around here is concerning how to effectively do math homework assignments. If you search online you will find several pretty good strategies. But we know you probably don’t have enough time to sort through all the methods to find the right one for you. So we’ve taken the best elements from each and have created this single, easy-to-follow fail-proof strategy to do get your math assignment completed effectively each time:
Establish a Dedicated Workspace
Many students struggle in getting their assignments done because they don’t make the effort to create a dedicated workspace where they can do work completely free from distractions. Set up a desk where you won’t be distracted by the television, phone, or the internet.
Get Started Early at the Same Time
Develop a habit of getting started early and at the same time each day. Research shows that it takes about three weeks to develop habits, so you’ll have to make the conscientious effort of doing this on your own for several days. But soon after it will become automatic and you’ll get through your assignment more easily.
Review Your Assignment First
Be sure to review your math homework before getting started each night. Take a look at the exact problems you will have to solve. Go through any notes or example problems and visualize yourself completing the assignment.
Set Up a Series of Manageable Tasks
Don’t look at tackling the homework assignment as a whole. Instead, break it up into several manageable tasks. You might tackle them in portions of ten or twelve problems or by sections. As you complete each task check it off your list and use this as means to gain momentum.
Prepare Some Healthy Snacks Before
You’re bound to get pretty hungry as work, especially if your assignment is time consuming and very long. It’s best then to prepare some healthy snacks to have around as you work. We stress the word healthy because snacks that are too sugary can lead to high spikes of energy followed by extreme lows.
Take Regular Scheduled Breaks
Be sure to take regular breaks throughout the evening. Our brains are wired to work efficiently only for about an hour at a time. Get up from your work area and take a walk or reward yourself with some time on the internet or to watch a little television.
