What are expert mathematicians saying about students facing difficulties to solve math problems?

by Jordan Wilson Academic Writer

When it comes to solving mathematical problems, students say “Please solve my math problem” either to their parents or someone who provides professional writing assistance. This is the request of all students irrespective of their academic level.

Asking for assistance is very common, especially when students have to do their math homework. They look for homework helpers who can finish the papers fast. Therefore, students do not have to rack their brains and solve the sums.  

Saying ‘please solve my math problem’ does help students to get a complete homework paper.  But it never helps to understand the lesson. As a result, students do not perform well during the exams because they do not know how to solve the sums.

Addressing the issue that students find difficulty in solving math problems, expert mathematicians have expressed their views and also stated a few steps that will help students to overcome the difficulties.

 Overcoming the fear

Experts have identified that the primary reason why students find it difficult to solve math problems is that they have a fear of the subject. They fear to do math problems because they think they might get it wrong. The result is, students, do not want to do the math homework or assignments. Instead, they look for math help online where they can hire a writer who will complete the papers.

 Practice for perfection

Experts have given the solution to overcome the fear in students. The solution is to practice solving math problems over and over again. Students can start practicing the sums or problems given at the end of each chapter. Later, they can start solving problems from other math books. Only then they can solve the sums or problems perfectly.

 Find a good guide

Experts have identified one mistake that most students make with math. They never approach the teachers or professors when they cannot solve a problem. The primary reason for doing this is that students fear that professors might scold or humiliate them.

However, students need to find a good guide who has a lot of patience and a cool mind. The person can be a parent, professor, senior or any other person who has a good hold on the subject.

Experts have also explained that finding a good guide is necessary. Students basically need to understand the approaches that they must take to solve a sum or address a problem, the applicable formulas, the step-by-step process to explain the solutions, etc.

Only a good guide can explain these things to the students properly. Moreover, a good guide never gets irritated even if the students ask to explain the concepts more than once. Instead, he helps the students to solve any math problem confidently.

 Apart from these solutions, the math experts also stated a few more ways to solve math problems.

Identifying the objective of the problem- Students must identify what kind of solution the problem is asking for. They must find the prompts that state the objectives.

Drawing diagrams- Students must draw diagrams as it helps to visualize the data that is given in the problem. Doing this simplifies the problem and makes it easy to understand.

Breaking the problem into parts- Students must break a problem into small parts when too much information is to be processed. This will help students to solve the problems easily.

Making a formula chart- Students must make a formula chart and list all the math formulas. However, it is essential for students to know the formulas by heart.

 To conclude, these are a few steps stated by math experts that the students need to follow. These steps will help them to overcome the fear and difficulties that they face while doing mathematics.
