Tips for Practice

FINAL COUNTDOWN !!!

TIP #1

TIP: When solving you do not need to go in order  you can choose the order that best works for you..

For higher levels you can work on multiplication and division first, for lower levels you can work on shorter questions 1-25 and 51-100 first then go to 26 and so on..Your choice !

Print 200 questions of the competition paper.  Time yourself for 15 min and Solve. Check your work and see how many questions you got correct.

Solve another paper of 200 questions, Change the order around for higher levels try multiplication and division first… see what score you get.

Target getting the highest score !!! Each question is worth 1 point !!! Experiment and Enjoy !!!

 

TIP # 2:

TIP: Time different sections

Time each different section for 5 min. Different sections include different type of questions..they could be different number of digits or different length of problems. For higher levels Time 5 mins for multiplication,5 mins for division and 5 mins for mentals and see what your child gets most correct in. Ask child to finish the section first where least time is taken.

Try this several times … may be practice a little more on what you are slow with and try to gain speed. Don’t forget to continue practicing the section you are good in to keep up speed.

Target getting the highest score !!! Each question is worth 1 point !!! Experiment and Enjoy !!!

TIP # 3:

TIP: For these last 10 days challenge yourself! Bump up your practice and we recommend trying to complete 4 sheets (only 15 mins per sheet) a day. Corrections do not need to be done for the sheets, just try to push yourself further for each sheet done!

Hint: Ask your teachers for No Homework this week to help boost your Competition Practice!

Please bring 4 sharpened pencils with you to the competition. If one breaks you will have 3 more at hand and can make the most of your time!
