What is a good pace to do math problems? I often take so looong to do math, while my peers and friends do it so quickly. However, i think it is because they do the material mindlessly while I actually take the time to read the pages of examples, proofs, history, etc. My peers just skip the pages, and only refer to it when they get stuck while doing the problems. Which approach of doing math is better? Is my approach a waste of time? What is a decent time for doing math? Is, say, 10-12 problems of related rates problems in 2 hours in Calculus 1 too slow or a decent rate? Thanks you much!
