Going to talk about school math.

I'm at school before math was taught in the books without a teacher, people say, "Why do you need?", but I continued to teach. In the end, the sixth class to a derived came, everyone knew, except for geometry, because I read only algebra. In the 10-11 class as the machine solved the problem very quickly, seemed more basic. So, from personal experience, I think ideally you should have this:

1. **Go from simple to complex**. For example, first learn the table of addition, then multiplication(Yes some of them do not know it), then learn how to calculate the sum of natural numbers, difference, multiplication, division; understand how is the power of the number; after study of the same operations for all integers, then for a decimal floating point numbers, etc.

2. If in some book too many new and obscure concept it is likely that this book is *not yet for you*. Take it easy book. I'd recommend books on the school curriculum or a great book-encyclopedia across the curriculum. Ideally, you should have *a reference book* (which has all the formulas if you forget), *the book-the theory* and *the book-an exercise book* (the last 2 often in one book). There should be a notebook for notes (+crib) and a notebook for tasks.

3. **Are incomprehensible sentence, clause, phrase**. It is inevitable. When you see this, re-read several times, slowly delving into every word, try to take a pen and work out, to figure. If you do not understand pause, switch to another, then return . If still it does not work, then clearly specify what is unclear and ask the teacher or on the forum somewhere.

4. **Practice**. The human brain is inclined to forget, so secure knowledge **outline**. **Found out some kind of algorithm, just **get yourself a **task **or take a book and **try to solve**. More hardcore: read some of the proof of the theorem, try to prove yourself without looking in the book. **To fix better **(*according to the degree of practicality*): **algorithms for the solution of problems, formulation of theorems and definitions**.

5. Learn to solve without a calculator. Sometimes it is impractical (for example to calculate the sine of 20 degrees), then you have to use a calculator or table, but in other common cases it's better to get used to the calculator.

6. **Occasionally pause and double check yourself**, well I mastered the material or not, **but after the logical end of Chapter, course, section, etc. ** (well you get my point).

7. *A very good sign that is* what you are looking for a task, can immediately understand what type belongs the task, by what method can it be solved, and confidence that will solve this problem.
