A math teacher recommends some important topics students need to focus on to ace their Board exam



Mathematics is not something you can ace at the last minute. Consistent practice and a clear understanding of concepts are essential, which means you need to start early. Now that the CBSE class XII Board exam schedule has been announced, students who have opted for mathematics must have a steady plan to make sure they are fully prepared to face any kind of math problem.

A senior school math teacher, Zenia Dutta, PGT Maths, Apeejay School Saket, says, “Mathematics is the music of reason. So, to ace it in the Boards, one needs to work on developing the reasoning skills of self.”

She suggests the following tips and tricks for class 12 students:

1. Make a list of all the important math topics and techniques. These include the application of derivatives, checking perpendicularity using dot product, Bayes theorem, Linear programming problem, Integration by partial fractions and special integrals, solution of simultaneous Linear equations in two variables using determinants, and differentiation. Revisit previously studied concepts from time to time.

2. Make a separate mathematics notebook. While solving questions, make a list of the ones which took longer to comprehend. Compile them in the notebook for a quick revision one day prior to the exam.

3. Make a study schedule. This helps you stay on track and complete topics within a deadline so that you do not feel rushed.

4. Do textbook examples. Write the mathematical procedures. Summarise concepts and step-by-step methods of solving a problem.

5. Make a list of all the formulae and keep it handy by hanging it on the wall.

6. Do not panic and do not cram. We need to apply reasoning skills for approaching a problem. And always keep a flowchart for solving problems.

7. Students should solve at least 20 sample papers before the final go as it promotes all-round critical thinking.
