Students studying in class 7th Math tuition are building up concepts that would be important in upcoming classes. 7th and 8th class mathematics form the core of Maths that they would be studying in class 9th and onwards. The topics they study in class 7th would be pivotal in their higher classes Mathematics. In 7th class, students have to understand and learn different math concepts based on algebra, expressions, geometry, and functions. They need to understand and practice a wide variety of questions based on these topics in order to be able to score high marks in maths exams. However, learning such topics needs consistent practice and regular revision of concepts with good study material such as NCERT, RD Sharma and maths worksheets. Here are some more hacks which will help you to score good marks in class 7th Maths –
- Selection of Study Material –
First and foremost, it is necessary to select the study material that you are going to study from throughout the 7th class Maths. It is highly recommended that students firstly go through and understand the concepts of Maths from NCERT Books For Class 7 Maths and then move on to different study materials of their choice. Apart from NCERT, students can refer to reference books such as RD Sharma or RS Agarwal to practise more questions and understand concepts better.
- Understanding basic concepts –
No matter which subject you study, everything is based on the basic concepts of a given topic. Therefore, it is paramount for students to completely understand and get thorough with the basic concepts of each and every topic. The concepts should be understood through NCERT theory first and if a student is unable to understand from there, they can refer to reference books of their choice to understand better.
- Maximum practice –
Getting better at maths is all about practice, practice and practice. The greater number of questions you solve, the wider variety of questions you are exposed to and the better your logical and analytical thinking of how to solve that question gets. Students must set aside time daily for practice of maths questions so that they are able to strengthen the subject at a fast pace. They can first revise the concepts from which they are going to attempt the questions and then go for the questions with confidence.
- Make a formula copy –
In maths, remembering formulas is key to solving questions. If you don’t know the formula which is essential in solving a question, then you would not be able to solve that question no matter how hard you try. To memorize the formulas effectively and quickly, students should make a formula copy in which they write down any formula they come across as they study all the chapters. They can then revise the formulas from the copy whenever they get the time so that the formulas get stuck in their memory.
- Practice solved examples –
NCERT solved examples are a really important part of any chapter and students should not ignore or skip them as they explain how to use the fundamental concepts that they just learnt in the previous section. Students should first understand the theory given in the NCERT and then move on to the solved examples through which they would be able to understand how to apply the learnt concepts in order to solve the question.
- Take help of reference book –
After going through the NCERT, the students can take the help of a reference book such as RD Sharma, which is widely used among students, to practice more. In the reference books, there is a vast variety of questions present which can help the students prepare in a better way so that they get accustomed to solving questions of various difficulty levels. If the students are not able to solve the questions, they can also refer to Solutions of RD Sharma in order to understand how that question was solved.
- Learn tricks to memorize formulas –
There are various tricks and tips which can help the student in saving time during exams. These tricks are excellent ways to memorize difficult formulas and concepts. Students can write down these tricks on a piece of paper or on sticky notes so that they are able to revise them frequently. Students can ask their teachers for tips and tricks for concepts and formulas that they are having trouble remembering, or else they can themselves create a shortcut trick to memorize the formula.
- Don’t hesitate to take help of teachers –
Students often are quite self-conscious and hesitant to ask the teacher for any doubt which is troubling them and end up not asking their doubt to the teacher. In the end, it is harmful to the student to not ask questions to the teacher, as it means that they remain confused about that topic, which may hinder their ability to solve questions related to that topic and even make it difficult for them to understand chapters in higher classes which uses fundamentals of the topic they are confused in. Therefore, when you have any doubt, never hesitate to ask it to your teacher, and don’t think about what others will think if you ask a silly question. No question is silly if it helps you in getting better at Maths.
- Revise regularly –
As important as learning any concept is revising it regularly so that you don’t forget the underlying fundamentals of that topic. Students should revise regularly from their formula copy, and keep learning the formulas until and unless they are fully confident of memorizing them by heart. If you forget even one formula, and that formula is essential in solving a question carrying a high number of marks, then you will lose out on a good result in Maths just because of one formula. It isn’t a risk worth taking.
- Practise previous years’ question papers –
Lastly, after completing the entire syllabus, students should solve past years’ question papers and sample question papers so that they are able to gauge how good their preparation for Maths is. After solving the paper, they can analyse their performance and identify and improve upon their weak areas. Solving these will give an immense boost to students’ morale and will help them get used to giving paper.
