If the subjects taught at school were characters from a 2000 teen movie, there’s no doubt that many people’s villains would be Maths, Physics and Chemistry! And it’s not just people from the back or from “the people” who say this.
In its latest version step (International Student Assessment Program), held in 2018 by OECD (Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development), 43.2% of Brazilian students scored low in exact subjects, with Mathematics accounting for the worst performance.

It is clear that many elements are involved in this account, such as the low investment in education in the country or even the low resilience of students when it comes to taking exams. The lack of skills and practice when studying the exact sciences, however, is not left out of the list.
Many students, for example, do not build a solid knowledge base in Math, Physics and Chemistry and continue to move on to more advanced content. At some point, inevitably, they crash.
Imagine a practical example: tackling a strengthening exercise is much easier when you have the concept of basic multiplication well defined in your mind, don’t you agree? For students who already have a history of difficulty in these disciplines, it is important not to be swayed by doubts and to avoid treating the disciplines as if they were already lost cases – regardless of whether you are starting or re-starting your entrance exam studies. year.
The teachers Daniel Ferretto (Mathematics), Michel Arthaud (Chemistry) and Andre Coelho (Physics), from the online course Teacher ferretlisted the essential tips for those who want to fearlessly tackle the three disciplines from now on.

If you’re used to seeing Maths as a math marathon, it’s time to pay more attention to theories. A good knowledge of the conceptual part and an understanding of the thinking behind the calculations is necessary to be able to understand what is charged in the exercises.
Also, studying the basic topics and then moving on to the more complex ones is also a good tactic. Grading is important when building knowledge in this industry – just like in a video game, you have to complete one level to move on to the next.
Finally, a golden tip for those studying for entrance exams is to do simulations with the same number of questions and time available for tests such as And either and fuvest. This will help with learning and also a sense of security when the real test arrives.

Of the trio of exact sciences, Chemistry is probably the branch that will require you to calculate the least when taking the tests. Therefore, to do well in the questions, it is also necessary to train the ability to read and interpret information. Yes, to do well in Chemistry you have to pay attention in Portuguese lessons!
Most of the exercises in this course require careful reading of both the numerical data presented and the concepts discussed. Again the importance of paying attention to theory!
Another important point is to check for errors. People don’t like to make mistakes and sometimes they don’t look for the reason why they didn’t get the question right. Ironically, this attitude is more wrong than the mistake itself. Issues we don’t get right are opportunities to identify gaps, delays and general difficulties.
In Chemistry and other precise disciplines, this is a very welcome attitude. Look at the error and see if you missed any part of the calculation or if you need to strengthen the theory a bit more.

In Physics, the secret to success is to honor the origin! In this industry, it is more than necessary to have a solid base of original topics. A good idea of basic physics and mathematics can save the student in any exercise and facilitate the absorption of new content.
Also, if your teacher is the type who likes to give practical examples, appreciate and incorporate this technique. Every time we learn Physics in a contextual way and apply it to everyday life, the results are significantly better. Apart from bringing the subject to ‘real life’, it is a guaranteed way to learn the subject effectively.
