school studying.. Please help!


So I am an a/b student and the end of the first 9 weeks of school is coming close, which means-report cards! Yay. I have an A in all my classes, even my 2 AP’s! But I have a 72 in math…. I’ve never been good at math but I’ve never ever had a C. I think the grades are final so I dont know what my parents will do when they see it.. They’re pretty strict about grades. It’s not that I don’t dry, because I truly do, it’s just that when a test comes around I panick..! So here are the main questions:
A.) what should I tell my parents so they don’t freak out when they see my grade?
B.) how can I study or raise my grade for the class..? Study tips, advice, anything is welcome.

Please answer, I really need someone’s help on this..

Start by telling your parents now that your math grade isn't where you want it to be and go to your teacher and ask for how you can prepare better for the tests and exams. Being proactive about what's going on with your math class and personally talking to the teacher and your parents is going to be the better policy than being reactive for when they find out.
I suggest asking your math teacher for help constantly until you know what your doing, that is the best way to get your math grade up simply, but you can also ask friends for help or join a school tutor club that helps you with your school assignments if there is one in your school that is. As for informing your parents about your grade in a way they won't be mad, I would not lie to them or make excuses, I would suggest telling them you have a plan to get your grade up and you'll work on getting your grade up. That's all you can do so your parents won't be mad because you can't really plan for a reaction, but you can prepare what you'll say that could help the reaction not be negative.
As for the question A, it's quiet difficult to answer it, as you are the only person knowing your parents better than anyone else in the world. In regards to the question B, have a look at some tips on how to train your memory in order to potentially improve the performance of your studies : 1. Read aloud and learn poems by heart. The more texts one learns by heart, the better memory they have. 2. Build associations – when facts are difficult to be memorized, try to do it by means of associations, connecting them to something more understandable. 4. Involve as many senses as possible to obtain visual, audio and other information about the object. 5. Finally, Keep to the healthy way of life, consume the right food rich in vitamins, sleep well and try to eliminate stress by any means. Without these factors it will be difficult to gain physical and psychological health and memory makes no exception. Of course, memory is a difficult phenomenon and one has to devote much time to train it to the appropriate level. Also have a glance at the website to pay someone to write your essays or need help to do any other difficult assignment requiring a professional service to cope with it just for the purpose to free up some time when need to invest it in something else: learning Math, for example. To be honest, according to your study performance, you're already a great student !
