If you want to improve your problemsolving skills, learn from your mistakes.

If you made some mistakes solving an exam, use them to learn and improve. Look at every mistake you made and take away new knowledge from it

It is important that we identify the cause of the error and learn from it. Many times, the cause of the error is laziness or not paying attention to what you are doing. By slowing down and paying attention to what you’re doing you will avoid most mistakes.

  • Silly mistakes reading/ understanding the question
  • Mechanical errors (mistakes solving/ calculating the answer, forgotten step, lack of review)
  • Special difficulties (maybe when doing written division)
  • Knowledge-based errors (lack of knowledge of the concept)
  • Order of Operations
  • Incomplete work

 If you are struggling with a specific concept, don’t wait to get assistance.

“The only real mistake is the one from which we learn nothing. ”  John Powell

A glimpse of the future

What Do You See Yourself Doing 7 Years From Now?

What kind of career do you imagine for yourself? Doctor? Lawyer? Scientist? Engineer? Teacher? CEO? Manager? Salesperson?

You’re in middle school now. What you do over the next few years will have an impact on the rest of your life. Now is the time to start thinking about life beyond school.

Stop looking at what you could have done, should have done, or what might have been. Stop chastising yourselves for opportunities missed, time wasted, or words either spoken or unspoken. The past is over.

Your future starts now.
