Math Study Skills – Tima Management (Part 2)

October 12, 2010 at 6:03 am 1 comment

Note: This is the second in a series of blogs on advice for students concerning Time Management. The series will run over the next several Tuesdays.

When should you study for math? In general, there is an advantage to studying as close to the end of your math class as possible. I suggest that you set up your study schedule to study at the time of day when you feel you are your sharpest.

If you are a “night person” you should study in the evening. However, if you find that you are getting tired, try shifting your study time to the morning or afternoon. If you study while you are tired it is very difficult to learn and understand mathematics.

Take a look at your weekly schedule, and set off blocks of time during the part of the day when you feel your sharpest. And be sure not just to set aside those times, but to actually follow through and study during those times.


Time management is one area that most students need to improve, and can significantly impact your success in your classes. If you have any thoughts or questions on time management, please share by leaving a comment, or reaching me through the contact page at my web site –
