At the end of Term 1, we had a brainstorming activity to list some strategies on how to improve our maths. Working in groups, students listed strategies pertaining to Homework, Assessment preparation and Class Behaviour. Here's what the students came up with:

  • Practice, practice, practice
  • Revise topics on notes or textbook
  • Self-correct - learn from mistakes
  • Seek help - class buddy, parent, teacher, Munch (Maths at Lunch)
Assessment Preparation

  • Space out time for study
  • Work on weaknesses, e.g. re-do exercises you found hard
  • Seek help  (see above)
  • Do the Practice tests
  • Revise topics on notes or textbook

In-class Behaviour
  • Put hand up to ask if you don't understand
  • No unnecessary talking
  • Take notes

The website is a wonderful creation Ms Mawby.

Learning Maths is considerably different from when I studied it- 30 years ago!

It certainly looks like much more fun: well done girls and keep up the good work.
