Why is homework important after math lesson?

Topic: Purpose of Homework

Question

January 20, 2016

state and explain three reason why it is important to be given homework right after mathematics lesson

Kudzai Isau - Zimbabwe

26716

Answer

One reason for homework is to verify that you understand the material taught in class. Doing the homework right away helps this process.

Another reason is that doing homework right after the lesson reinforces what you learned in class. If the homework is skipped, you might not remember what was taught.

In mathematics, it is important to practice solving different types of problems and performing various operations. Your homework will give you that practice to help in understanding the principles.

Best wishes for success in your mathematics class, as well as the others.

Destiny - USA

We do have material on Arithmetic and Algebra that could help you understand the topics. Unfortunately, I don't have any material on Social Studies.

Consider the classes in which you do well. Often, they are classes that you are more interested in. See if you can apply those principles to math and social studies.

Also, you might ask your teacher for tips or ideas of how you can do better in those classes. Often, they can provide some helpful ideas.

Relationship with respect to teacher

Topic: General

Question

November 27, 2015

how to get a relationship with your teacher ??

andorian - USA

26568

Answer

Just being in class gives you a student-teacher relationship. However, you want this relationship to be positive and friendly.

The best thing to do is to show your teacher that you are anxious to learn. They like students who want to learn, as opposed to those who hate to be in class.

When you try to do your best, you feel better about yourself, and your teacher should appreciate that.

Best wishes for top grades in school.

David - Lebanon

Answer

I am sorry to hear you are getting low grades in school. Do you have any idea why you are having such trouble? Do you do poorly in tests? Do you do your homework? Are you having trouble concentrating? Is the class material too hard for you?

The first thing to do is to examine where your problem is and what is the reason.

Being able to do well in tests and exams is important. Try to take notes of important things in class and do your homework as if it was an exam. That gives you practice.

Make sure you are not being distracted in class and when you are doing your homework.

Although it is not easy to do, talk to your teacher and tell that you want to get better grades and ask for some advice on how you can improve. You may find out what you area doing wrong.

Finally, go through our lessons on getting good grades, as well as reading the feedback from other students. You may get some good ideas.

The fact that you want to improve is a good start. I am sure you will be able to improve and get good grades. Try to get top grades. I know you can do it.

David - Tanzania

Those courses require learning the basic concepts and using logical thinking. In other words, thing should make sense.

Physics probably will require knowledge of Algebra and ability to solve problems.

Read the material in your books, carefully and make notes about things you don't understand, so you can ask your teacher.

Also, take notes in class about important concepts the teacher mentions. Class notes will often help you when you study for your tests.

Sit towards the front of the class, so your teachers will know you are anxious to learn.

I learn a secondary school in Kenya. There are stiff competition in our school. I want to score well from now on. Plz would you help me the tips of reading books?

Abdikafi - Kenya

Answer

A big problem many students have is that there are so many distractions around them, such that they never concentrate on their schoolwork.

It is good to set aside a specific time to do your schoolwork or homework, not allowing any distractions. In fact, you can set aside a certain amount of time for each subject matter or assignment. Then make sure you finish the assignment within that time period.

It is good to write down your schedule, so that you will then follow it. This is a good time management method.

Also, write down the grades you would like to get in each class and put that list somewhere where it will remind you of your goals every day.

Taking notes in class is a good way to keep up with the competition. It also helps you study for your exams.

You have good goals and the potential to excel. Look over the lessons on Getting Good Grades for ideas to improve.

Best wishes for success in school.
