Friday 6th December 2013 - Maths Fractions On the first day of my revision I decided to begin with fractions. A fraction is a numerical quantity that is not a whole number (e.g. 12, 0.5). The information I gathered to revise fractions were, going back to my notes I took in class, using BBC bite size website, also doing questions from GCSE maths book. Being in college on Friday I didn’t have much time during the day to study maths, but once I got home and had dinner I decided to start studying. At approximately 21:00pm I got together all my revision information and decided that the first 10 minutes I would have a look at some videos on YouTube from maths lecturers to get a better understanding. After those10 minutes I decided for the next 20 minutes I reflect back to my notes I took in lesson, then I started creating some of my own questions to test my ability. The last 10 minutes of my revision I decided to start a test on lowest level of fractions at BBC bite size then gradually built up to higher levels. The outcome of the test was better than I thought; I was impressed with the result and had a better understanding. I also decided to take notes for every topic throughout my 10 days revision this was in addition to know my weaknesses and if I couldn’t understand I would ask my lecturer for help. Fractions are not my weakest in maths as I do have a rough understanding.

However in the evening I decided to ... ... middle of paper ... ...with revision online and 10 minute online test the results were improved which means I have improved. This was very helpful as it reminded me on how straightforward it was just by having a quick recap on the topic. It was very helpful particularly as these are my most difficulty in maths. Monday 16th December 2013 Maths Ratio o -On the day of my exam I’m recapping my remembrance on ratios, just before my exams I test myself with class mates for 20 minutes and then I decide to take some notes just so I could have a final glance of what I was recapping on. The last 20 minutes before the exam I was testing myself. I felt this was a very superior idea as I was very unsure about ratios. Having to have a final memory it bought back all my memories on what I had studied on ratios. I feel positive if ratios came up in my exam I’m confident that I would get it correct.
