If you get nervous before a math test, over-study. Do more problems
than you think you need to do. The better prepared you are for the test,
the less nervous you will be.
- Watch Your Thoughts.
If you get nervous about math, or anything else for that matter, you
are probably saying negative things to yourself like, "Im
no good at math," "I dont know anything," or "Im
going to fail this test." Youre making yourself nervous.
Try saying positive things to yourself like, "Im learning
a lot," "I can get good grades in math," and "I
will pass this test."
- Breathe Easily.
If you start getting nervous, breathe slowly and easily. Close your
eyes, take five deep breaths and picture yourself in a peaceful place.
