About Maths

Mathematics is an area of knowledge that includes topics as numbers, formulas and related structures, shapes and the spaces in which they are contained, and quantities and their changes. These topics are represented in modern mathematics with the major subdisciplines of number theoryalgebrageometry, and analysis respectively.

Most mathematical activity involves the discovery of properties of abstract objects and the use of pure reason to prove them. These objects consist of either abstractions from nature or—in modern mathematics—entities that are stipulated with certain properties, called axioms. A proof consists of a succession of applications of deductive rules to already established results. These results include previously proved theorems, axioms, and—in case of abstraction from nature—some basic properties that are considered as true starting points of the theory under consideration.

Studying Maths

There’s no denying it--math can be tricky! Even if you don't feel like it's your strongest subject, though, you can get better at math if you're willing to put in the work. The best way to do well in math is to practice every day, so set aside plenty of time to study on your own or with a group. With a little determination, you can make real strides in math.

Work through extra practice problems, as well. Your teacher assigns a certain number of problems for homework, but if you don’t feel like you fully understand, you might need to try a few extra problems. Look for extra practice sets in your textbook or online, and try some of those until you feel more confident. Oftentimes, the answers to all the odd-numbered problems are in the back of the book. Do the odd-numbered problem, check your answer, then try the even-numbered problem next to it.

  • Solving problems over and over is the best way to get good at math, which is why doing your homework is so important.

  • If you're looking for practice questions online, you might check out popular math sites like Khan Academy, Math-Aids, and Corbettmaths.
