Reading a math textbook is different than other types of reading. A math textbook teaches you concepts and techniques rather than telling you a story. It’s not always the best strategy to start from the beginning and try to read every single word. If you feel like reading your math textbook is “impossible” try some of the following strategies, which will help you get the most out of your reading.
