Take It Easy
Most people are stressed when they are dealing with math. Just take it easy and take a deep breath and start your work. Getting stressed out cannot help you and you can only mess things up in that case. If you are calm, you can take a minute and work your way through.

When you are having trouble in math, pay more attention to what the teacher is telling you and concentrate more. Feel free to ask questions and make sure that you understand that which is being taught. Ideally sit in the front row so that you can have the best view of things and can avoid the disturbances in the class.

A lot of students are unable to understand how or why the problem was solved in a particular manner. Make sure that you understand the basis on which the problem was solved. Unless you get to the root of the problem, you will struggle. Also it is a good idea that you inquire about the nature of using a certain problem in real life which allows you to have a better perspective and understanding.

Nothing can replace practice, particularly in math. You will need to do each and every problem in the book and some of them, more than once. The more you practice, the more you will understand and the more confidence you will gain. Start doing the work slowly and pick your pace with time. If you have friends who also have issues with math, have a group sitting on predetermined times and discuss and practice together.
