    You need to train your subconscous like training an animal. This is because, in order to really learn anything, the subconscious must agree to learn, and must learn. The subconscious functions on the level of an intelligent animal, such as a dog or horse. The subconscious controls all of our bodily functions and also all learned behavior. The conscious simply directs and guides the subconscious. For example, when you drive, or type, or talk, you don't think about how to do the mechanics of what you're doing, you simply do it. That's because your subconscious has learned to drive and talk and type, and it simply takes over as easily as a dog walking along its familiar route.

    So how do you train an animal? You break the lessons up into short doses, and break the task to be learned up into small managable bites. You keep the critter interested and motovated with positive talk and a reward now and then. You start off easy and build up to harder as the critter grows in skills and confidence. You make sure the lessons are comfortable and pleasant and there are no distractions.

    In the same way, you train your subconscious to practice and learn math. Break the lesson up into small, managable bits, start off easy and work up to hard. Replace negative self talk with words of encouragement, and treat yourself now and then. Set a goal that you will work for a while, say, 15 minutes, and if you've accomplished something, allow yourself 5 minutes doing something you enjoy such as playing a video game. As you develop skills and understanding and stamina you can increase the intervals. Be kind, yet firm, with yourself, and your subconscous will respond and learn. After all, you're a lot smarter than a puppy.
