If you find that you are given a set of complex homework assignments regularly, there are some vital tricks that you should follow to ensure that you get your homework done on time, every time.
Trick #1: Make sure you create a relaxing homework space. Not enough emphasis can be placed on this trick. You will be shocked, truly shocked, at how much your productivity can improve if you have an environment conducive to proper work. You should always find a good place to do your work, especially if it is complex. This place should be quiet, with no noise or distractions. You should be allowed to work in peace and quiet without interruption. You should have all of the tools or materials that you require before you start working in that work space, so that you do not have to get up. Leave the television off, turn off the computer/internet if they are not in use, and leave your cell phone outside. Make sure you have a comfortable chair and desk space so that you can sit upright without straining your back.
If you prefer to work at home, try and find an office, a kitchen table, or a desk in your room. If these do not suffice, try working at a local café or the nearest library.
Trick #2: Study around the same time each day. It is best to work at the same time each day because then your brain will start to associate that time of day with hard work and focus. You will find after a few days, the moment you sit down and that time approaches, your brain turns on to homework mode. This makes it much easier to get through your work faster because there are no distractions. On that note, set a timer for the duration of your homework period. If you are going to work for one hour, set a timer for one hour so that you can just mow through the hour without continually looking at the clock or checking how much longer you have. This frees your mind to focus all of its conscious efforts entirely on your difficult homework assignments.
Trick #3: Always start with the more challenging material. Many students make the mistake of starting with the easiest things when their mind is freshest, but this is not good. Do not leave your hardest tasks for when your concentration dwindles.
