# Math Homework Help – Get it if You Need It!

Posted: February 08, 2017 - to Education

Here’s the thing about math. It’s cumulative and sequential. What this means in very simple terms is that what you learned last week, you are using this week; and what you are learning this week, you will be using next week. If you can’t solve an algebraic equation with one variable, how will you ever solve one with two variables?

And how do you learn and retain what you have learned? You do that with practice. And what does practice look like? It looks like homework. And that is exactly why homework is assigned – so that students can practice what was taught that day and “cement” the learning.

### Less Accountability is Dangerous

In high school, homework was collected by teachers and graded. It became a part of a student’s final grade. When college rolls around, however, assignments are given but often not collected. Grades are based on a paper or two and final examination. And, in some courses, there are those who argue about its importance at all. If, in a history course, for example, students are told to read a chapter for homework, it is quite possible that many will not do that. Why? Because they tell themselves that they can just cram for the mid-term or final instead of read now and forget by the time that exam rolls around. And sometimes that will work.

But foregoing math homework is not like reading a chapter sometime later. Certainly, it’s tempting when it won’t be collected and won’t count toward a grade. But, as was stated earlier, math is cumulative and sequential. And because of the nature of the subject, cramming it all in the night before an exam just doesn’t work. You won’t understand the “how” and the “why” of the problems, and you are sunk.

Homework in math and other STEM coursework must be done regularly. You do it so you don’t forget what you learned each day and so that you can use it tomorrow.

### When You Don’t Get It – Get Some Homework Help

Math is not easy for many students. Often, they are taking the required courses for graduation or for a specific major and no more. And even then, they find that they do not understand what was taught in the classroom and are going to have to find some math homework help somewhere. Where to get it?

• Well, there may be that math major down the hall who can explain it. Unfortunately, he is swamped with his English essay assignment, because, while he is great in math, not so much in English. He would love to help but just doesn’t have the time.

• Maybe you could put together some type of math study group. That will take some time, and it certainly is no solution for right now. Here you sit with a math modeling problem and no idea how to do it.

• Maybe it’s time for some online math help. But will it be the right kind? You don’t want to contact a writing/coursework help site that will simply do the homework for you – you don’t have to turn it in, you need to understand how to do it.

### Getting the Right Kind of Help with Math Problems

The kind of help you need is explanation – someone to show how a problem is solved and to provide a simple explanation that you can understand. For example, math modeling problems require some very specific thought processes as well as algorithmic skill. You have numbers; you know those numbers need to be plugged into a formula. But which formula to use and which numbers go where in that formula? And why are they inserted in each spot? You need these explanations so that you can perform the same types of problems on an exam.

There are a number of online agencies that offer math help services. Finding a good one may take a bit of research on your part, but when you find a good one, with actual math experts who will provide a full explanation as they help solve your problems, you will have a place to go any time you need assistance.  And that’s a good feeling.

### Don’t Kiss a Lot of Toads

There’s an old saying – “sometimes you have to kiss a lot of toads to find your prince.” While this was based on a fairy tale, it has now come to mean that people may have to try many options before they find the right one. Instead of doing that for your math homework help, take some time to find the right service early on.

You should begin your search for math help by checking out some of the writing service review sites that evaluate the companies and give students objective information. Read through their reviews and find services that are given high rankings by customers and the reviewers themselves in the area of coursework help. You want a professional, reputable and trustworthy company that will provide degreed mathematicians for your needs. If you are an undergraduate math student, for example, you should have a tutor with a Master’s degree. Access the company website and contact the customer support department. As the right questions about their coursework help. Make sure that you and your tutor will have open lines of communication. If you don’t understand something the first time, you need to be able to say so and get further explanation.

### Sleep Better at Night

Once you have an established helpline for your math homework, you can commit to getting that math homework done any time it is assigned. And that alone will relieve some of your math anxiety.
