Math is a subject that must be studied differently than other courses.  Two characteristics separate it from other subjects.  It is sequentially learned and it is a skill subject.  For a student to have success in math, he/she must understand these two differences and then be willing to change the approach to math study.  

I read something recently which stated that the way each of us sees our life shapes our life.   And, how we define our life determines our destiny.  I believe this principle can be applied to students, as well.


It is important for a child’s success academically that his/her parents insist that academics come before any other extracurricular activities.  It is a student’s job to be in school.

Is there a correlation between physical exertion and academic success? Many educators speculate that by limiting the number of exercise breaks for students during the school day, we hamper their potential in the classroom.
