I've tried looking up this word in dictionaries + translate tools, it all say the word 「うめる」means is "to bury". So what does it mean in this sentence?


I read it on the start section of a textbook, so I guess it means something like "this book will explain everything a little by little", but I'm not sure is it true or not.

[埋]{う}める can also mean "to fill in (a form, blank)".


Fill in the blanks.

To break your sentence into smaller chunks...

わかる -- understand, know the answer to
ところ -- the part
から -- from, starting from
うめる -- fill in, fill up, fill out
ようにしましょう -- let's try, please try
