MATHEMATICIANS HATE HIM
FIND OUT WHY WITH THESE TOP 5 TIPS:
From working your crappy minimum wage job, to counting down the hours to the weekend, we use math everyday. Now, it might be tempting to drop out of high-school and become a train-hopping hobo –math can doable. If you settle down once a day, pay attention and wipe away your tears, you’ll be fine. With that said, here are “Ned’s Declassified Math Guide”.
- What is free time, really?
Look, I want to watch the latest episode of Big Brother just as much as the next guy; however, it’s not always that simple. Brass tax is: do your homework. Don’t say ‘five more minutes’, do it now. Get up off of your pampered tuchas and do your homework. I’m not even joking when I say this either, doing your homework can improve your mark by a solid amount. Big Brother can wait, the deadline for the test ain’t movin’, Bub.
- You’re going to sound stupid, but at least you wont fail.
As much as you hate speaking in front of your peers, you have to ask questions. No way around it, you might ask a dumb question, who cares? I’d rather sound stupid and do well on a test, than sound cool and take a phat L.
- Keep your eyes open and your mouth shut.
Listen, math isn’t communication 10, this is hard. Like really, stupid hard (at least for me it was). So pay attention. A Khan Academy video will never replace a well paced, well said explanation by the teacher in front of you.
- Don’t make this the fun, sleepy time class.
Don’t sit next to your bro, don’t sit next to your bff. Sit next to someone who pays attention and might help you out later, ESL’s will be your homies about one week in to this course. You’ll even make new friends, so what’s stopping you?
- This class is bearable, trust.
Probably better to keep this in mind. It’s not the end of the world, thousands of people have done this course and didn’t probably die. There’s usually time in class to do some homework –use it. Don’t look at the clock waiting ’till the bell rings, just tough it out and concentrate. Remember: A watched kettle never boils. So just do your work and try your best. It’ll be June before you blink.
