England’s new National Curriculum requires that algebra is taught in year six. That means that most students will feel unprepared for this change. Algebra deals with the use of substitution to evaluate many different algebraic expressions. It also teachers students how to evaluate different formulas for a given input value. Algebra is a simpler way of expressing repeated patterns. There are several ways that students in year 6 can learn to deal with their homework.
The best way to remember how to do an algebraic equation, is to take notes on the step by step process. Don’t skip over parts that you think that you will remember. Include every step so that when you get home and there is no body there to help, you have the information you need. Next, you can also add notes for each step so that you know why you did that. It would be great if you can add the rules on the same line so that you know why you moved this or that around.
There are wonderful video libraries that you can access right online. You will be able to stop the videos and take more notes or watch them over and over until you get the hang of it. They are usually broken down by the type of problem that you are doing so you can easily follow them. Some will even track your progress so that you can start where you left off. You can find other ones that quiz you on the material as well so you can see if you are really grasping the main points.
If you are still struggling, you can get a tutor. There are usually other students who can help at school. You will have to work out a time for you and them to meet and go over the different problems that you are struggling with. You can also hire a tutor online who will be available to help you whenever you need it.
Don’t let yourself get behind. You can’t just skip over the sections that you find hard to do and then think that you can just get caught up on the next unit. Algebra builds on past concepts so get the help that you need right away so that you don’t fall too far behind.
