Practice, practice, practice

Math can be an intimidating subject. Each new topic we learn has symbols and problems we have never seen. The unknowing is what psyches ourselves out. It is important to remember that we all have the ability to learn. Math doesn’t have to be scary! Once you learn the topic, it is important to go a few problems step by step to understand what is going on. Afterwards, you must practice! What they say is true, “practice makes perfect.” The more you practice the better you get.

Try Symbolab’s practice!

What is practice?

Practice is an interactive component of Symbolab. In practice, subjects are broken down into topics. The topics are categorized under difficulty. Select the topic, which you need practice in, work out the first problem, and enter in the solution. If you need help solving the problem, click “Hint”. Each hint will show you a step to solving the problem. Use a hint when your answer is wrong or try the problem again. It is recommended that you get five problems solved correctly, before continuing on to the next topic.

After you finished all the topics in the section, take a quiz to test your skills! Answer 10 questions without hints and see if you are ready for a more advanced topic. At the end of the quiz you will get your results.

Why should I use practice?

Practice is a great resource that helps you better understand math topics.  You are given problems that will cover all different types of problems under the topic. If you get stuck along the way, you have hints that will take you through the problem step by step. There is no better way to excel at math than to study hard and practice, practice, practice. It’s a great way to review before a test. Practice won’t be free for long, so make sure you register for it now!

Everyone has to ability to learn math. Practice is a free way to take advantage of your ability and learn! Math doesn’t have to be scary. Practice, practice, practice and the easier it will become.

Until next time,
