I’ve been thinking a lot lately about why I’m writing about math while studying in college. I think it has a lot to do with the fact that it’s been a while since I studied math in school, and I don’t remember a lot of what I learned. I also think that it might be a good idea to write about math for a few reasons.
1. It helps me remember
When I was in high school and college, I was really good at memorizing formulas and equations. I memorized them so well that I could recite them back to the teacher without looking at my notes. I was also good at doing math problems in my head. I could work out the answer to a math problem without needing to write anything down. It was a skill that I was proud of, and it came in handy when it was time to take math tests in college, where I was often tested on my ability to solve math problems without writing them down. But as I got older, I started forgetting things I learned in math class. I would have to go back and re-memorize the formulas and theorems I had memorized before, and even then I would forget some of them. I started to feel like I was forgetting more and more things as time went on, and that got me thinking about why this was happening, and what I could do to prevent it from happening in the future. I decided that the best way to prevent myself from forgetting things was to write them down, and so I started writing down the formulas, equations, and math problems that I studied in class. It worked, and for the first time in a long time, I felt like I could remember everything I had learned in my math classes. It felt really good to be able to look back on my notes and remember all the things I had written down. Now, when I take a math test, I write down the problem, and then I go back to my notes to look up the answer. If I have a question, I can look it up in the back of my notes, and if I need to write down a formula or an equation, I just write it down on a piece of paper and put it in my backpack. It really works!
2. Writing about math helps me understand it better
Writing about math is a really good way to help me understand the math that I am learning in my classes. For example, in my algebra class, we are learning about solving quadratic equations. When I first started studying algebra, I had a hard time understanding how to solve equations like this:
x2 – 4x + 5 = 0
It took me a while to figure out how to do it, but once I did, it really made sense to me, and now I can do it without even thinking about it. Writing down the steps I took to solve the equation really helped me understand what I was doing, and made it easier for me to do the same thing when I needed to solve an equation in a different way. I find that when I write things down, I am more likely to remember them, and when I remember things, I understand them better. So when I am studying math in class, I try to write everything down as I learn it, so that I can remember it and understand it as I go along. It also helps me when I have questions, because I can write down my questions and go back later to see if I can find the answers to my questions in my notes or in the textbook. It makes it a lot easier to find the information I need when I need it, and makes it easier to remember the information when I want to use it later.
I think that writing things down is really important when you are learning math, because it helps you remember what you have learned, and helps you understand how to use the information you have been learning. It is also a great way for you to keep track of your own progress as you learn math, so you can see if you are understanding things correctly, or if you need to re-learn something that you have already learned. If you are having trouble understanding a concept, writing it down can help you figure out what you are doing wrong, and how to fix it. It can also help you when you have to explain something to someone else, because you can just write down your explanation and show it to the person, instead of trying to explain it to them over the phone or in person. Writing things down can really help you learn and understand math, and can be a very useful tool in your study of math. I hope you find it useful, too.
