• Maths is a subject in which you can score marks very easily if you know the basic concepts and the formulas for each topic. The first few chapters in your class 6 Maths syllabus deal with the number system. That is the most important and basic part of learning maths. If you know the number system well, you will be able to do the rest of the maths topics well. The number system is the most basic thing that you need to learn in class 6 Maths. Once you know everything about the number system, your basics are covered. Hence, the first step while using the NCERT book for your class 6 Maths exam is to understand the concepts of the number system very clearly.

• After the first three chapters, you will get an idea of natural numbers, whole numbers, prime numbers, composite numbers, and so on. You will know the basic concept of everything that constitutes the number system. After that comes the chapter "Playing with numbers." In this chapter, you get to apply every number system concept that you learned in the previous chapters. This chapter introduces you to factorization, multiples, and other basic concepts related to addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division. Once you go through the textbook and learn the formulas, start practising thoroughly. You cannot get good marks in Maths unless you practice. If you practice this third chapter after going through the first two chapters, then you will get the hang of the number system and how to play with numbers very well.

• After the number system and playing with numbers, comes the Geometry part. Chapter four is all about the basic geometrical concepts that you need to know to further study advanced geometry in higher classes. Basic geometry is very important for you to learn for this very reason. Get an idea of the shapes, angles, how to calculate the area, perimeter, and volume of a shape.
