“Without mathematics, there’s nothing you can do. Everything around you is mathematics. Everything around is numbers” – Shakuntala Devi

If the subject is accepted in a right spirit, you can do everything. And, if it is not considered and valued, you can do nothing.

Now, I am going to give you some tips of do’s and don’ts of mathematics for 8th and 9th-grade pupils, by being your ready reckoner for a while.


  • Read, Rehearse, Repeat – Learning mathematics is fun when you are equipped with a textbook like NCERT 8 maths solution. Grasp the lessons and be alert during the class hours. Practise on a regular basis. Learn, understand and practise should be the rule of conduct.
  • Accept and tackle – We are fellow humans and not robots. Hence, we commit errors. And, it is absolutely okay. But, accepting that is one of the most important factors. Post accepting, learn how to rectify the faults. I would strongly recommend you to refer good reference books like NCERT 9th class maths.
  • Hard work – Working hard and analysing is the best way to become a master in Math.


  • Never grumble – When your peers get the solution and if you don’t get it on the first attempt, learn to accept it. Do not drain your energy in complaining.
  • Never wait to seek for help – As I mentioned earlier, that we are not robots and it is okay to either make mistakes or get stuck. If you are paused in a problem, please do not hesitate to ask for assistance.
  • Do not be overconfident – Overconfidence leads you nowhere. Always ask questions, get your queries clarified and yearn to learn more.


Follow these tricks while learning math to become a wizard of the subject. It can be learnt in many ways. Say, for example, referring to textbooks or learning it from the tutor or subscribing to EdTech which enhances one’s learning capability. To know more, subscribe BYJU’S YouTube channel-
