Mathematics

MATH (for 5-6 years old)

Kindergarten math focuses on developing a love for the subject and mastering number sense: counting, key operations and exploring math concepts like comparison and measurement. They will also learn about shapes, both 2D and 3D. We will help your child nurture an early love of math through our kindergarten math games, which draw in young learners through colourful illustrations, cute characters, and challenging (but fun!) game play. We instill the idea that math is fun and part of everyday life. 

By the time they enter Primary/Grade 1, they would have a solid foundation in addition and subtraction and have touched on multiplication and division.

MATH (for 7-16 years)

Our team of curriculum specialists prepare weekly worksheets that are carefully thought through and specially crafted for each level.

With an extensive library of tiered worksheets covering the different school levels , our students are challenged, but also able to progress at their own pace.

Our students are guided through the learning process by being taught how to solve Mathematical sums of varying levels of difficulty.

The sums range from the basic ones that help to build the student's foundation to the more difficult problem sums that require critical thinking skills.

Detailed examples of certain sums are taught to our students before they are given similar sums to practise on their own.

They are taught various strategies to solve the more difficult sums. These more difficult sums are reintroduced in future worksheets for further practice and reinforcement.

The regular revision and reinforcement from the worksheets help our students to gain self confidence in preparing themselves for their school examinations.

Sample question1:

 

Billy had 30% as many marbles as Chris. Chris had 125% as many marbles as Willie. If Willie gave Billy 70 marbles, Billy would then have 50% of what Chris had. How many marbles did the 3 boys have altogether?

 

Answer: 735

Sample question2:

 

Mary puts some money in boxes A, B, C and D. The amount of money in box A is 2/7 of the total amount of money in boxes B, C and D. The amount of money in box B is 2/3 the total amount of money in boxes A, C and D. The amount of money in box C is 1/3 of the total amount of money in boxes A, B and D. If there is $161 in box D, what is the total amount of money in the four boxes?

 

Answer: 1260 (Students are supposed to get answer without simultaneous equations)
