What can you do if you are not good at math?

Please read before you comment. Im not good at math at all. I try my best and i study very hard but i am just not good at it. I have only 1 credit of math and i need 3 more to graduate (im already in 12th grade) I dont know what to do. I have been tutored but that doesnt help. I will study for maybe 3 hours and then in less then an hour i will forget it all. Im good at everything else in school i have A's and B's in everything else.

You need to talk to a guidance councillor or advisor so they can help you create a plan to earn the required mathematics credit to graduate.

Some people just have subjects their skills are much weaker in but the right type of class might help. Are there any more basic mathematics classes you could join (have you been put in classes that are too complex because you're doing so well in other areas?) or mathematics classes combined with another subjects you are good at (e.g. business mathematics, or an applied mathematics class?)

Remember not to give up. Keep at the studying, make sure to practice your maths a lot, try memory techniques like flash cards and mind maps or anything else you find helpful, never be afraid to ask for help and think about how mathematical concepts link to real life situations (if you're interested in science, art, buildings etc these could help). Best of luck.

Creat the Interest in calculation.That can be developed by practising regularly for some time.Give positive suggestions to your mind like I am very good at Maths.You also can stand in front of Mirror and say with emphasis "I do very good at Math and will be doing for ever".Take the help of the meditation for the positive Instruction to the mind. You will definately get the result.

Write it out as a song....I remember lyrics to every song I listen to...but I never tried it if you have a good memory with music you could try it might not work who knows...you should talk to your teacher try guidance counselor if they know that you study also go to tutors & nothing helps they could make it easier for you or try there best to teach you a lot more...I'm not good at math either it's no biggie half the stuff you learn in class you don't even use in reality talk to your teachers I'm sure the'll help if not just keep guessing until you get it right who knows you might get lucky lol or just fine someone who's willing to teach you out of school maybe they can help just make sure they no there math before you find someone if you do

Math is repetition. Studying by reading gains you very little. Do the problems. Do them over and over and over. Something that might help is to get a problem. Have the answer already, and try to figure out how the answer was found from the problem. That's how I learned mostof my math in high school and I excelled in my math classes.

Math is a very simple subject, But no need to study like history or any other . Be patient first..
Try a simple equations, maths problem,,,, and you have to try as many problem as u can. Since math will come only by practice. If you want to solve calculus - then you have to remember all the basic equation.Just try to solve 200 to 300 question a day... I can give you guarantee that , you will be expert after 2 months.. and no one will beat you.

I practiced working on problems I knew the answer to, then I redid every problem I missed until it was automatic to use the right formula and add, etc., correctly. I'd take a break of several hours and redo the problems in a different order. Got As in math classes.
