Success in Mathematics

Many students arriving at college may find that they have forgotten some of the basic skills required to learn various mathematical concepts. Some educational researchers and mathematicians of note have commented that learning math is more than a bit like learning a new language. Keeping that in mind, this site provided by the mathematics department at St. Louis University may be useful for both students and educators alike. The site provides information on how to study mathematics, how to approach problem solving, and when and how to get help. The material here is contained within subsections that address such matters as "Active Study vs. Passive Study" and "Solving a Problem". In all honesty, students cannot go wrong with such a nuts and bolts approach to mathematics, and this site's effective message will ring true with educators.
