5 Ways to Learn Math When It’s Your Weakest Subject in School
Math is not one of my strongest subjects. When I realized that Statistics was the next class in my MBA program, I knew that I needed to work twice as hard. We had our second class this past Wednesday, and I knew that I had to come up with a study plan. It doesn’t help that I am listening to half of the class in the car while taking my son to Boy Scouts.

In my second MBA class, four people in my cohort and I created a study group. We continuously texted ever since that class ended. One of them had a great idea to continue the study group for this class. Everyone was on board. Learning in a group can really help because if you have a question, there is someone in the group who probably has the answer. I am lucky that these people are all nice, smart, and have that “we are in this together” mentality.
Reach Out to the Professor/Teacher
If all else fails, I know that I can reach out to my professor to get help. He wants all of us to succeed so he is there to help.
Always try a mix of learning tools to get a grasp of a material. I always tell my kids that with the internet, they do not have the same struggles I had when I was younger. I either had to wait until I had class next to ask the teacher something or go to the library and hope the book I needed was there. I am grateful to be working on my MBA during this time because there is always help from my professor, my peers, or online.
