Math homework can make some students’ heads spin. All the equations, operations and numbers can be hard to keep track of, which may result in you feeling stuck with it. However, you should do your math homework since it’s an important part of your grade and it offers a great opportunity to practice what was learned in the classroom. 

With this in mind, The Tutoring Center in Sammamish is here to offer a helping hand if you’re stuck on a math problem. Hopefully, by following this guide, you’ll be able to solve the problem in no time.

What to Do When You’re Stuck on a Math Problem
  1. Read the instructions carefully, and make sure to follow them so there’s no confusion about what’s being asked of you.
  2. If you can’t seem to move on from a certain point, go through the work you’ve done again. It’s probable that you’ve made a mistake that is keeping you from moving on.
  3. If you’re feeling a bit lost, do a quick search through your notebook or online. Look up the concepts and equations you’re using, and even search for similar problems that can help guide you.
  4. Sometimes, the frustration of not being able to solve a problem can give you tunnel vision. Give the problem a rest and take a break before coming back to it. It may be that the answer was right in front of you all along!
  5. Discuss the problem with your peers or teacher. Maybe they can give you a new perspective on how to solve it and may answer any doubts you have.
  6. Work, work, work! Don’t get distracted with other things and really use your knowledge to get to the answer. You can even try to simplify the problem as much as possible so you can see everything in a different light.
  7. Avoid cheating at all costs! It may be tempting to do it when you’ve spent hours working on something without any results, but keep in mind that your homework is meant to help you practice and get better, so don’t waste this opportunity.
