- 1. Tips for Math Tests<br />
- 2. Math Tests<br />Work Systematically<br />If you are not penalized for arithmetic mistakes, spend less time on accuracy and checking answers and spend more time on setting up the problem correctly<br />
- 3. Math Tests<br />Write all the numbers correctly<br />Be careful when writing the numbers 2, 5, 4,9, 1 and 7<br />Write numbers in columns when decimal points in a line<br />Recopy problems from scrap paper very carefully<br />Make sure you label units of measure ie.. Inches, pounds etc.<br />Use a calculator to solve all the problems<br />
- 4. Math Tests<br />Organize Your Work<br />Make a list of all the problems and variables that the problem gives you<br />Identify the formula needed to solve the problem<br />Use pictures and graphs as needed to interpret the question<br />Label the visual aids with the data provided in the problem<br />
- 5. Math Tests<br />Organize Your Work<br />Estimate what the answer should be before you solve the problem<br />Ask yourself what how big or small the number will be<br />Ask yourself will it be positive or negative<br />
- 6. Math Test<br />Use all the information in the question<br />In most cases, all the data you need is provided in the question<br />
- 7. Math Test<br />Visual Aids<br />Study visual aids carefully<br />If graphs and charts are given in problem study them carefully<br />Ask yourself is the graph origin at 0.0<br />What are the intervals for the axes?<br />Are there any numbers skipped on the axes?<br />What are the units measure?<br />
- 8. Math Test<br />Don’t Quit<br />If you are having trouble setting up the answer or formula don’t give up<br />Substitute real numbers for a, x or y to see if it makes more sense<br />Think of real life situations when the formulas or concepts are being used<br />If fractions are a problem then substitute rounded numbers or decimals for them<br />
- 9. Math Test<br />Multiple Choice Math Test <br />Some tests give you multiple answers when solving a problem<br />Cover the answers until you are finished solving it<br />Estimate what the answer should be<br />Generally, eliminate the very high and the very low answers, especially if you have to guess<br />
- 10. Math Test<br />Check Your Answers<br />Always budget your time<br />Go over the answers<br />Reread the directions and questions<br />Make sure you answered all parts of the question<br />Does you answer make sense?<br />Does it answer the question?<br />Re-work if you have time<br />If time re-enter into the calculator<br />Check all decimal places and signs<br />
