How to Solve a Challenging Math Problem

Go Over the Instructions Again

Are you completely sure that you know what you were asked to do in your math assignment? Sometimes, students feel confident and start working on their math problem without ever stopping to read or fully understand the instructions. Needless to say, this can then result in a confused student that has gotten stuck when working on a problem. To resolve this, before you begin, make it a point to read the instructions and to comprehend what's being asked of you.

Review What You've Worked On

If you already read the instructions and you're certain that you're doing what you're supposed to be doing, then the trouble may lay on the work you've already done in your math assignment. It should go without saying that, since math is an exact science, you should make sure that all of the work you've done is correct. Otherwise, you could end up unable to move forward or working with incorrect information. Check the work you did to verify it's all correct.

Seek Guidance Elsewhere

What happens when you read the questions, you've done the work correctly, but you're still not getting passed a certain point? For such occasions, you may need a light to show you the way. One way to get that illumination, is to seek for guidance in your notes or online. You can use the resources within arm's reach and find similar problems to that one you're working on to learn how you should continue. Of course, if you have teachers and peers, then you can turn to them, too. More so than asking for the answer, ask them to give you direction, so you know which path to continue down in your effort to solve the math problem. In any case, just try not to cheat, as you will only be losing an opportunity to become a better mathematician.

Give Yourself Breaks

To study, to learn, and to solve math problems, you need to keep your mind focused on what you're doing. If you don't, you can make mistakes that could derail your efforts entirely. However, not breaking your concentration for extensive periods of time can also derail your efforts. This is because, when you're too focused on something for too long, your brain starts to get tired, which may lead to more mistakes or tunnel vision. To prevent this, give yourself 5 minute breaks every so often.

Think and Work Hard

Some of your other school subjects are about memorizing dates, names, and events, more so than they are about truly analyzing a problem, thinking hard about solving it, and then putting in the work to finish the assignment. But math is not like that. To solve your math problems, you need to think and figure out how to proceed before you do and then challenge your mind to get everything done. Think and work hard so you can get unstuck.

Try to Remain as Positive as Possible

Last but definitely not least, you should know that it may be your mind what's keeping you from completing your math assignments in a successful manner. Thought Co. mentions that math requires patience and perseverance. However, they can be hard to come by if you have a pessimistic attitude. That's why, it is imperative that you learn to trust your capabilities, and that you avoid negative thoughts at all costs when you're working on math.
