Without a doubt the most useful tip you can get with your maths homework is to know what you don't know. The problem many students have with mathematics is that they can't explain what they can't explain. When you know what you can't do or calculate, then and only then are you in a position to get help. Does that make sense? Know your weaknesses.
It's doubly important that you are able to explain the things you can't explain not just because it will help you find the best sort of help but because fixing it will not handicap your progress. So many students have a problem with their maths homework and they manage to scramble a pass without ever coming to grips with that particular aspect of maths. They don't have an understanding of the concepts involved. This means that when they get a more difficult or more advanced section in their maths, they are not in a position to work out the answer. They can't find a way forward. So whatever you do as far as your maths homework is concerned, make sure you have a clear understanding of the theory so you are in a position to solve any problems in this part of your curriculum.
The three basic sources are your teacher, your fellow students and the myriad of online homework help services.
Of course your teacher may be too busy to spend time in a one-to-one teaching situation with you. But certainly you can raise the particular problem that you have at least get advice on where you can get more advice. The teacher may be able to refer you to additional resources.
Fellow students can always be a source of much assistance. If you have a peer who has mastered the particular mathematical concept that you are having trouble with, getting them to explain it to you could be a godsend. In return you could offer some tuition in the subject you are good at and which is not their best strength.
Then there is the service available online. You want to be sure that the tips you get from an online homework help for mathematics are in fact useful. Basically there are two types of websites which offer maths homework help. There are the free websites and there are the professional ones.
The free ones may solve your problem instantly. They may have the particular problem which you can't solve at home doing your homework with the perfect answer on display. Your problem is solved. But that doesn't necessarily mean that you will have an understanding of the problem, you only have the correct answer and its important you gain understanding. The professional homework help websites can offer a variety of useful tips. If you want to go the whole hog you can pay to have one-to-one tuition from a specialist in mathematics. The choice is yours.
