To all students struggling with Maths and parents worried about their children’s performance, the human brain is mightily gifted with calculation, logical interpretation and reasoning ability. All you need to do is unlock this potential and train your brain to calculate quickly and accurately.
To begin with, it is extremely important for the kid to improve the basic calculations namely division, multiplication, addition and subtraction, decimals, fractions, percentages and ratios. The basic calculations should be practiced in a time-bound manner for about three to six months so as to increase the speed and accuracy of the student in the subject.
Since weak students lack understanding of previous concepts, learning all previous lessons relevant to the present class syllabus are vital. In about an hour of practice per day, half an hour should be meant for practice and the rest for learning previous lessons.
Tests should be designed starting with simple and easy questions to improve the confidence of the students, the difficulty level being gradually increased week after week.
Students should be consistently encouraged and inspired during this practice course and never discouraged at any point. Having said that, they should also be corrected when they commit mistakes.
By the end of this practice, the student will have developed good speed and accuracy in calculations. Also he/she would have relearned and revised all relevant previous lessons and worked on his/her shortcomings. There will definitely be a drastic improvement in their scores, performance and most importantly, in their confidence level.
