CBSE Class 8 SA1 Tips for Mathematics

  • Begin by practising ‘Comparing Quantities’, because the maximum number of questions most likely will come from this chapter
  • Practise as many types of application problems as possible
  • It would be very helpful to practise at least one graph (it can be a histogram or a pie chart) in the chapter ‘Data Handling’ every alternate day
  • Alternate the days where graphs are not being practised with a construction from ‘Practical Geometry’; one construction from that chapter is bound to come in the exam
  • After ‘Comparing Quantities’ is done, give preference to ‘Linear Equations in One Variable’; application problems are very important in this chapter
