Don’t Let Math Fears Keep You from Achieving Academic Goals
Don’t let your math difficulties get in the way of your academic future.

Some of the topics covered include:

- Adopting new approaches for solving word problems and using formulas.
- Using effective memory strategies to help retain what you learn.
- Starting the habit of checking your math work to minimize careless errors.
