Upcoming Parent Workshops

Ever wondered why your child is unable to apply the Maths concepts learnt to his/her exam paper? It is because not all students are able to bridge the gap between what is taught in schools and what is tested in the exams themselves. It is often higher-order, non-routine problem sums which students have difficulty with.

At this hands-on workshop, pick up tips and tricks and gain exposure to skills and strategies which you can immediately apply to help your child solve word problems.

 

Did you know that for secondary school Editing, unlike primary school where the errors are underlined, the errors are unmarked and students have to be able to find the errors themselves as well as identify two lines that are error free?

Did you know that secondary school Visual Text Comprehension questions test students’ critical thinking skills and their ability to evaluate the use of visuals and use of language for impact?

Get mentally prepared and find out exactly how different secondary English is from primary English by attending our workshop!

 

Join us at our hands-on Maths workshop to learn from our Head of Mathematics as she shares how model drawing can be effectively applied to make solving word problems easy. A visual means of helping young children “see” the word problem, model drawing can be a very useful tool when used the correct way.

Maths Concepts Explained!

Confused by all the different Maths problems and concepts that your child has to learn? Then this is the parent workshop for you. Understanding these ‘new’ Maths problems will better equip you as a parent to help and support your child.

Concept 1: Percentages – Salary & Savings

These questions are commonly tested in exams and many pupils do not know how to solve them.

Nancy spent $800 of her monthly salary and saved the rest. In April, she increased her spending by 40% and her savings decreased by 25%. How much is her monthly salary?

Concept 2: Gap & Difference

One of the most common and basic concepts that can be applied to make solving word problems a lot easier.

A group of students took part in a Maths quiz. They found that if one of them had scored an additional 15 marks, their average score would be 88 marks. However, if one of them had scored 20 marks less, their average score becomes 83 marks. How many students were there in the group?
