This might seem dumb,but: How do i improve in math?

I have put in advanced math and just failed the test along with a few others. This is the first time i have ever failed in a test. The only reason i failed is because we weren't telah diberi enough time. We weren't even give 45 minutes! I didn't even finish half of the test! I am really angry at the teacher. In the last class, for the whole class, she told us how disappointed she was with us. We tried to tell her to give us lebih time in the seterusnya test and she berkata no. We either know math atau anda don't. This is my problem. I need to find a way to 'know math'. How do i improve? BTW we are never allowed to use calculators and we have to do all the working in our heads.

We're allowed to use calculators at my school :c and I am in normal math. If I wasn't allowed to use a calculator I would probably be screwed. I really wish I could help anda but I honestly don't know what to say. Practice maybe?

thanks 4 the help! It may atau may not work because she expacts us to know everything and will just yell at us, but i guess asking is really the only solution!

anda and the other students could sign a petition and/or complain to administrators I guess. If the whole class didn't finish, atau the majority, that's not fair, especially if anda were an A B student, because apparently anda know it.

I can't exactly sign a petition. This teacher is the most scary and most strict teacher in the entire school. Lots of my class is pretty down about it but i think we are just going to alih on! Thanks anyway!

I think anda need to complain about your teacher to someone at your school. She sounds extremely unfair and probably needs a talking-to.
The way to improve maths is to revise.

I am not saying that she is a bad teacher. She is actually a great teacher! It is just that she expects too much of us and i am just annoyed at that. I am going to do lots of revising!

A good teacher understands that she can't expect too much from her students. If the whole class is struggling then anda know something is wrong.

Alternate Testing! If anda can't finish a test in time tell your guidance counselor and they might put anda in the Alternate Testing room when anda write tests and stuff and they will give anda extra time especially if not being able to finish cause anda a lot of stress. That is what most schools around here are like anyway.

That sounds great but my school only does that for students who really need the extra help. I am in advanced math and i don't think that they would let me do that. Thanks anyway!

If the class can't finish the entire test, then she is being completely unfair. Math tests should ONLY be telah diberi a number of problems that the average time it takes for the class to finish plus a few lebih minutes, that way there's no excuse for not finishing the test in time. She needs to get rid of some of the problems on the test to fit the necessary time atau allow calculators. It seems like she's a horrible teacher. Its hard to improve times in math unless you're a g-ness atau something, but even then math follows rules and steps that anda can't always skip. The only way anda can improve in math is like other classes, study and do problems over and over again until anda got the pattern down.

Thanks for the advice. I am not saying that she is a bad teacher! She actually a really good teacher! It is just that i need to improve. Not her. I think just practice is all i can do!

anda berkata yourself, "The only reason I failed is because we weren't telah diberi enough time". So it might not be that anda need to improve, but to have lebih time on the tests. 45 minit sounds very short on time for a test so if your teacher won't do anything tell the principle/headteacher (or whatever anda call it where anda are).
I had an exam a week lalu and it was 2 hours even though we all usually finish within the first hour. The point is 45 minit is way too short for a test in my opinion...
