CHANDIGARH: On March 7, Class X students will be facing the most dreaded subject: Mathematics. Understandably, nerves are stretched to their ends, with the students cramming up as much as possible to shine through in these competitive times. To ease the pressure, maths teachers from Tricity schools tell you what to focus on in the last two weeks...
For Tarandeep, from St Joseph's School in Chandigarh, revising the chapters that have more weightage could stand the students in good stead. "Make sure that you know these chapters 100%," he adds.
"Complete the entire syllabus from NCERT book first to understand the concepts. Then consult reference books to do questions for practice. Solve previous years papers and sample papers within 150 minutes. Try solve between 10am - 1pm, because this is the time when you will give your board exams," says Anu Sharma Saupin's School, Sector 32, Chandigarh.
Yes, she has a tip: Start with easier problems first to gain confidence. "Read all 30 questions with concentration and mark them into categories viz, easy, manageable and tough, before attempting them," she adds.
Don't know it? Still try it, is what Renu Madan suggests. The maths teacher from Hansraj Public School in Panchkula says, "If you do not know the answer to any question, it still will be a wise move to attempt it. CBSE does not give negative marks to incorrect answers. Give it a try," urges Madan.
