How to Study Further Mathematics Efficiently

  • Mathematics is best learnt through practice. Prioritise studying by completing practice questions. These can be found in a variety of ways including past exams (available on the VCAA website) and “Question Types and Skills” or topic summary notes available through our website.
  • Look back on past assignments and practice exams and consider what areas you are strong or weak in and prioritise studying areas of weakness.
  • Make sure you know how to complete questions both by hand and using technology. Using technology is generally faster but exams and assignments can include questions based on the processes used to solve by hand.

  • Try to identify how different topics relate to one another. Exams often include questions that do so and it also helps to understand the topics.
  • If you are struggling with a particular topic and practice questions are not helping, revise the concepts behind it. There are many resources available to do so including topic notes available on our website.
  • It can be helpful to complete one or more past exams (or practice exams) under timed conditions closer to your exams, taking note of how long it takes you to complete questions. In general, it should take less than 1.5 minutes for every mark a question is worth to complete it. If it takes longer, consider practicing the question type or topic.
