Consistent practice is the key
Remember that math is unlike many other subjects where you don't have to necessarily remember a topic when moving on to another topic. But in math, everything is a building block to the next topic. That's why it's important to build a solid foundation, learn the basics of mathematics like the back of your hand. Practice is the key to get better at simple addition, subtraction, multiplication and division. When you progress into the pre-algebra, algebra, geometry and higher mathematics you have to be able to master each or you will fall behind. Buy a good math book and work on the side. Many times I will work with students over the summer so they don't get rusty or forget what they learned the previous school year. Practice, practice and more practice is the key to keep your math skills sharp.
