maths

Mathematics is not hard but it is indeed challenging. Went to do it for the first time this year. I found a book a month before the exams and followed the examples in it. I was so unsure on the day of d exam and wanted to cancel that. However I still went to do he exam, did not complete paper two and was surprised that I got a 3. But I am going to do it again in Jan because I told myself if I can get a 3 wihought much practice then I can get a 2 his time around.

Mathematics is not HARD/CHALLENGING all you need to do is just,
1. Ensure that you retain all you can in class.
2. Remember the formula .
3. Fellow the steps.
4. Pratise.
5. Work on the difficult tops you have challenge with more.

I am doing mathematics May/June 2013 and i told myself i can do all things through christ with strenght me.And i must past it with a 2/3 this year.

Hi, working out a math

Hi,

working out a math problem in exam is like following a recipe. let's say a recipe has six steps to make a cake. The examiner is checking to see if you know the correct six steps for the recipe; he is checking to see if you know the correct six steps to solve the math problem.

So you get marks for each correct step in the math problem you get right.

Can you follow a recipe correctly and the cake falls flat? Yes.

Can you follow all the correct steps in a math problem and get the wrong answer? Yes.

Do you get marks for the problem even if you have the wrong answer? Yes.

You will get full marks if you can show that you have followed all the correct steps and you get the right answer.

But if you make some small mistake with adding or something, you still get marks for following the correct steps and knowing what you should be doing to solve the math problem.

Hope this helps.

Re: math marks

Hi,

Yes, you do get marks if your working shows that you know the correct procedure to get to the answer. That means that you must have written down your working for the questions and not just the answers.
