Always read math problems completely before beginning calculations.
Draw a picture that will help you solve the problem.
Do not stay “stuck” on any particular problem; choose the answer(s) you think is best.
Then go on with the rest of the test.
Always double check your work if there is time.
Ask yourself if your answer makes sense.
Don’t be afraid to use your fingers if it will help.
Practice previous lessons on Mathletics/IXL before FSA testing. Exposing yourself to all
of the content will increase your understanding and recognition of tested material.
Continue to work on newly assigned IXL math lessons.
Finish the test. Any unanswered questions will be marked incorrect.
