## Common Math Struggles for Students

Many students find certain math concepts and skills challenging to grasp. Let’s look at some of the most common struggles in mathematics that students face:

### Fear of Failure

Some students develop anxiety and a fear of failure in math which can be debilitating. They worry so much about getting the wrong answer or looking foolish in front of peers that their anxiety prevents them from even attempting problems. The Math Medic can help alleviate math anxiety through patience, encouragement and by breaking down problems into more manageable chunks.

### Lack of Understanding

If core math concepts like number sense, fractions, or algebra aren’t fully understood, students will struggle with more advanced topics that build upon them. The Math Medic helps students gain a solid understanding of foundational math concepts so they have a strong base upon which to build new skills. We walk through problems step-by-step and use visual models to reinforce understanding.

### Poor Problem-Solving Skills

Knowing math facts and formulas is important, but being able to apply them to solve word problems and real-world situations is a key skill. Many students have trouble translating word problems into mathematical expressions and then determining the correct operations to use. The Math Medic focuses on developing strong problem-solving abilities by modeling the process of reading through problems carefully, identifying key details, and figuring out the necessary steps to find the solution.

### Lack of Practice

Some students simply fall behind in math because they lack consistent practice of skills. Math is a subject that builds upon itself, so missing key practice opportunities in previous grades can put students at a disadvantage. The Math Medic provides students with tailored practice assignments to strengthen their math skills through repetition and can re-teach any missed topics to help get them up to speed.

With patience and the right guidance, these common struggles can be overcome. The Math Medic is here to provide the necessary support and encouragement to help students achieve success in math.

## The Math Medic’s Diagnostic Approach

The Math Medic uses a systematic approach to diagnose your math skills and determine the best treatment. First, we review your math history and background to gain insight into your current level of understanding and any gaps or weaknesses. Think of this as your math patient history. We want to know what math classes you’ve taken, where you struggled, and what concepts you feel shaky on. Don’t worry, there are no wrong answers here. We’re just gathering information to provide the best care.

Next, we evaluate your current math skills and problem-solving abilities with a diagnostic exam. This helps identify any “symptoms” that could use improvement, like a tendency to make small calculation errors, trouble with word problems, or forgotten formulas. The diagnostic also shows us your strengths so we can build on what you already know.

After the diagnosis, the Math Medic develops a customized study plan based on your needs and goals. We might recommend:

- Reviewing and practicing fundamental skills that provide a foundation for current and future math concepts. Things like fractions, decimals, percentages, and basic geometry.

-Targeted lessons and worksheets to refresh forgotten or confusing topics from previous math classes. Algebra, anyone?

-Learning new problem-solving strategies and tips to make math less intimidating. Practice makes progress!

-Interactive apps and games to build understanding in a fun, low-pressure way. Who says math can’t be entertaining?

## Proven Techniques to Improve Math Skills

As a math medic, there are several tried-and-true techniques you can employ to boost your math skills. Some of the most effective methods include:

### Focus on the basics.

Review addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division. These elementary skills form the foundation for all higher math. Use flashcards, timed tests, and math workbooks or worksheets to drill these facts into your memory.

### Learn math vocabulary.

Understand terms like quotient, divisor, circumference, radius, polynomial, and factor. Knowing the proper vocabulary will make math problems much easier to comprehend. Make flashcards for new terms and review them regularly.

### Practice word problems.

Word problems challenge you to apply math skills to real-world situations. Read through the problem carefully, identify what is being asked, and determine what operations and formulas are needed to solve it. Start with simpler word problems and work your way up to more complex ones.

### Use mnemonics and songs.

Mnemonics, like “Please Excuse My Dear Aunt Sally” to remember the order of operations (Parentheses, Exponents, Multiplication, Division, Addition, Subtraction), and catchy songs can help math concepts stick in your memory. Look for ones that match what you’re studying.

### Get extra help.

If there are certain math topics or skills you’re struggling with, don’t hesitate to ask your math teacher or tutor for extra help. They can give you one-on-one guidance to help strengthen your understanding. You might also search online for video tutorials on specific math concepts. The more ways you engage with the information, the more it will sink in.
