So, this is not really a question for a problem, but I just wanted to ask for some quick advice. So, I've been doing online math classes for about one and a half years now, and sometimes when I really can't figure questions out, (Yes, I actually do try the questions before searching for any help, and even then, Ii only allow myself to see half of the answer before trying to figure it out myself.) And, I feel like, because in class, I can do most of the questions relatively easily, but when it comes to the homework, I struggle for a long time with the questions. Sorry. I don't even know what I was going to ask for. Um. So, what I was going to ask is, how did you all become so good at math? Because I personally really don't like math, and I think that hinders me from practicing, simply because I don't like it, so does anyone have any like, tips on how to make math more fun for yourself, or just some tips in general? Thank you so much!

Uhhhh I just do math classes and if i don't understand, I'll google WHAT I don't understand (for example, if it's asking for a coefficient of something, and I don't know what coefficients are, then I google "what are coefficients?" or I look at textbook review problems

Well I just get some math problems from the AMC8 or AMC10 to do when I don't get the problem because I try to practice my stamina and accuracy

Sorry, I do not really have any great tips.

 

I think one of the troubles is that maths classes are often too hard. 

If something appears to be unachievable it cannot be fun.

Try to concentrate on the basics. Get success with those. Build up your confidence.

 

If you had a worthwhile tutor that is how they would be helping you to achieve.  Building confidence works wonders for ultimate success. Without proper guidance, I expect this will be difficult for you to achieve so that is why I said I really do not have any great tips for you.  But maybe it will give you something useful to think about.

I'm not sure how I got good at math because I learned 2-1=1 when I was 3 years old and 1+1=2 when I was 2 and a half I began to like math after that and I worked hard on math but I'm not sure about how to help but just persevere(don't give up) and you do great or maybe you'll you might even have a cahnce to go to MATHCOUNTS and win a first place?
