How To Do Your Homework Really Fast: The No-Fail Method

There are many reasons why students feel pressure to get their homework done as fast as possible: the workload of students have increased, and most students also have sports, extracurricular activates, and family obligations to balance with them. While it is important for students to do a good job on their assignments in order to keep their grades up, it is also important that they be able to get through all of them

Follow this no-fail method to get through your homework really fast:

  • Get rid of as many distractions as possible
  • One of the easiest ways to increase your productivity on assignments is to eliminate as many distractions as possible. These days most students are glued to their phones 24/7, and spend a lot of time texting and checking email or social media without even realizing it. When you sit down to do homework, shut off your phone, or at the very least turn it on silent and put it away in a drawer. If you aren’t actively using the internet for your homework, you should also turn off the wifi on your computer. And if you are using the internet for homework, be sure to close out of any windows that you don’t need for the task at hand. If you are someone who likes to listen to music when you study, put it on to drown out any background noise too. Taking a few moments at the beginning will actually save you time later.

  • Start with the problems that you know
  • This is a helpful test taking strategy, and will help to save you time on your assignments as well. If you are working through a problem set and you come across a problem that you don’t know the answer to or you don’t know how to solve it, skip over it and come back to it at the end. This will help in two ways—first it will allow you to get through the easy questions quickly, and second, it will give you some space in which you may figure out how to solve the problem by the time you come back to it.

  • Don’t waste time trying to figure out problems you don’t know how to do
  • If you encounter a problem that you still don’t know how to solve when you come back to it, don’t waste too much time figuring out how to solve it. Instead, go to a resource like your textbook or the internet to find the answer.
