Math Skills Resources

Still stuck on that math problem? Having trouble pretty frequently with your math homework? Don’t worry, it’s definitely NOT because you’re a girl. Math can be tricky! And learning new things takes a lot of focus and energy.

So here’s a quick list of resources I’ve used in my past and highly recommend for coming to a deeper understanding of mathematics. Sometimes you really just need a quick review or “re-teach” of the topic when you’re experiencing difficulty. These sources will provide you that and some practice problems. Considering that I’ve been an A student through high school calculus and a B student in college Calc 2 and Calc 3, I think these resources are really worth checking out!

First, take a deep breath and relax, because you are already amazing and capable!

Be sure to designate a chunk of time (maybe 45 min to 1 hr) to read the relevant readings and work the practice problems in one or more of these sources. Don’t let your anxiety about getting everything done before class tomorrow get in your way! You can also supplement these online resources with your school textbook or tutorials with the teacher.

Here they are:

    • Schaum’s Guides
      • Pre-Algebra
      • Algebra I
      • Geometry
      • Algebra II
      • Precalculus
      • Calculus
      • Statistics

  • College Board SAT Official Guide, Mathematics sections (you’ll need this book to test for the SAT if you’re college-bound, anyway!)
