    I just don't understand?? vinbrowne15

    The reason I find higher level maths so hard is because the words they use are very hard to understand, i'm able to speak perfect English, I just cant get the hang of the words used in maths. Does anyone have any notes on these type of words used in maths, eg,(Translation)??

      no sorry but my advice is to look over the exam papers and ask questions to your maths teacher

      I'd say to keep doing papers to see what comes up frequently, then ask your teacher what those words mean

      Most of the time there are trigger words in a question such as solve,explain,show,find and calculate. If you know what is asked of you whe. These words are mentioned you should be ok

      all im sure of is that 'find the sum' means that you add. 'solve' means multiply.

      No Solve means find the value of the variable
