# Homework Help: Math Tips For Beginners

Are you having trouble with your math assignments? Do you find it hard to understand basic math rules that are easier for the rest of your class?

You are not alone! There are many others like you, who have trouble with math homework. Math is one of the most challenging subjects, if you don’t have interest in it, or if your basic knowledge about the subject is not sufficient. It can be fun for those who are good at calculations and have a passion for it but, not all students are the same.

### Always stay attentive during the lectures

When it is hard to build interest in a subject, then it is even harder to stay attentive during its lectures. However, if you want to learn the only thing you can do is pay attention. Once you start listening carefully, at least some of it will stay in your mind. Do not skip classes at all, as it will get hard for you to cover the lectures you have missed.

### Take notes

Taking notes will always help you, no matter what subject you are dealing with. You should always keep a pen and a lecture notebook with you, where you write notes regularly. Whenever the teacher emphasizes on something, make sure to highlight or simply encircle it. This will help you afterwards when you are skimming through your notes.

### Practice a lot

Math is a subject that is all about practice. You can never learn math orally. Practice makes a man perfect and this is true for math as well. It is not a theory subject, where you can cram the material and learn it orally. You will never get good at math if you don’t practice it regularly. Whatever you learn at school, you should come home and practice it yourself. Try challenging yourself by solving the problems that your teacher hasn’t yet taught you. It will be fun.

### Do your assignments yourself

Well, it is okay to get some help from your friends, parents, siblings or a tutor but, never rely too much on anyone. You may ask them to explain you the basic principle of various math problems but, never ask them to do it for you. Learn how they are doing it and then attempt it yourself. In the beginning you will find it hard but, as time passes you will start developing an interest in it.
