Math Myth: You must have Good Memory

One of the strangest beliefs surrounding Mathematics, is that you need to have a very good memory to excel at it. However, this is completely false, as Maths is best solved with practice. The more you practice a subject like Maths, the better is the impression on your mind. Although initially, you may need to learn a few formulas by heart, the more you practice, it will get embedded into your memory and come naturally to you. You do not need to have the highest I.Q. or the greatest memory to be good at Math. All you need to do is put in hours of practice and hard-work, and watch the amazing results.

Math Myth: If you don't get the exact answer, you are a failure

Although this maybe the case in the very early foundation years of mathematics, it should be realized that as you grow older and older the answers need to be approximately correct. Teachers tend to look out for the methods, procedures and thought processes rather than just the final answer itself. Therefore, we advise you not to get discouraged if the answers are not exact, since in further studies approximate answers are considered. Maths is a subject best mastered by practice, and you can click here for some amazing maths products for school.

Math Myth: There's one best way to do the problem

If anyone tells you that there is only one way to solve a sum, that is complete nonsense. Maths is a subject which utilizes all your creativity and produce the correct answers with several different methods. 

One does not have to simply follow what is given in the text book, and you can explore the various permutations and combinations that go with this truly fascinating subject. It is highly recommended that you develop an understanding of Mathematical concepts rather than simply learn one method by heart, and you can click here to check out some amazing products to help you out.

Get Knitting this Winter!!

Why not make your own sweater to beat the chilly winter? 

Knitting is an amazing hobby and skill to master and can provide you with loads of satisfactions as well as bring a smile to the people who you make things for. Everyone loves it when their grandmother makes them that special sweater or cap, and apart from bringing joy, knitting can have some tremendous advantages for children as apart from teaching children really complicated maths in the form of practical experience it also teaches kids to visualize a final product and work towards it. 

If all this wasn't enough, then you should know that two of the most important lessons of life can be learned through knitting, patience and persistence. One has to be patient while knitting something as well as put in the constant hard work to achieve the final product, and this can be used much later on in life as well. 

For these reasons, we recommend knitting as a hobby for all school children this winter, and hope to see many sweaters and caps from these kids!

Exam Hour: Time Management

One of the key aspects for doing well in your exams and making sure your efforts have not gone to waste, is definitely completing the actual exam paper itself. Although this statement sounds very obvious, a lot of students do not complete their paper on time, and as a result lose marks on questions which they know, but do not have time to complete. There could be various reasons for this, but we'll focus on how to effectively manage your exam time to complete your paper:

1) Choose Wisely: One of the most important choices you can make during your exams is which option to choose and which ones to leave out. Almost all examinations have options, where you must select the question you find better for yourself. Use your reading time very well, to mentally decide which questions to choose to avoid wasting precious writing time. Another analysis you must make while choosing your questions, is that if you know all the answers, try selecting the questions which would take the least time to complete, so you have more time to revise or go through your paper after you are done writing. 

2) Don't know it? Leave IT!! 

So many times when you are writing your paper, you come across a question and think to yourself, "WHEN DID WE LEARN THIS???" In such instances, it is better to leave a little space, and go on to the next question without wasting even a moment, as you would rather fill up your paper with answers that you already know really well, rather than think waste time thinking about an answer you do not know, and then writing it not knowing whether it is right or wrong. If you have time after you are done with everything, then you can easily go back to that question and give it a good attempt. 

3) Keep a track of time: Sometimes you can get carried away while writing a particular answer. You maybe writing and writing not realizing the time, when suddenly you realize you have only half an hour left and a lot of questions pending to be answered. To make sure this doesn't happen, keep a watch in front of you, right on top of your answer sheet and keep giving it a glance to ensure your writing is on track. 

4) Be Confident!!

Lastly, be confident while writing your paper. Be confident with what you have learnt, and are writing currently. This ensures a smooth flow of writing, and no cancellations adding to the aesthetic value of your written paper. So, if you have worked hard and know the answers, there is no need to second guess yourself. GO FOR IT!! 

We really hope these tips help you while writing your paper, and you are able to complete it before time.

Eating Tips During Exams

If you’re like most students, test and exam time eating often sends you into a slump. Nutrition becomes a nightmare as you take in your quota of “junk” food. Getting control of your eating during these stressful times is possible though.
Here are some really useful tips for eating during exam time:
 1. Eat small, frequent meals to keep your blood sugar and energy levels steady.
2. Have easy, convenience meals and foods on hand. Avoid living entirely on snacks as they usually won’t energise you as much as a real meal.
3. Choose meals and snacks that emphasise protein over carbohydrates. Protein-rich meals and snacks keep your energy levels even. For example, snack on cheese, crackers and skim milk instead of crackers and juice. Top your pasta with grilled chicken strips rather than pasta and sauce alone. You can even scramble some eggs!
4. Water, water, water! Keep a cup and a litre of ice water at your desk to help maintain your energy. Drink at least that amount of water for every two hours of studying.
1. Make yourself get up to snack. Don‟t bring the snacks to your study place. Eat snacks in the kitchen or another part of your room, away from the desk.
2. Make sure your room/apartment is stocked with healthier snacks. Here are some ideas: nuts, raisins, cheese sticks, low-fat yogurt, low-fat cottage cheese, low-fat milk, crunchy fresh fruits and veggies (add dip for the veggies), frozen juice bars, hearty low sugar breakfast cereals, oatmeal, low-fat popcorn, protein-rich nutrition bars etc.
3. Remember that thirst can be confused with hunger. Try drinking a glass of water if you are unsure of the origins of your hunger.
4. Only eat when you are physically hungry, not because you’re in need of a study break! When heading for the kitchen, look for true hunger signals, like stomach pangs, to be sure you’re physically hungry.
If you’re not hungry but still desire to eat, take a 10-minute time out and try to figure out what you really need (i.e. study breaks, stress relief, pep talk, etc.) Try to get those needs met without using food. Do something physical to get the blood circulating to the brain.Don’t watch TV for a study break. The commercials for food will send you straight to the kitchen!
