Sec 2 Algebra Quiz ( Top Scorer: Jasmine Toh , Sengkang Secondary School)

Sec 2 Algebra Quiz ( Top Scorer: Jasmine Toh , Sengkang Secondary School)

Top Scorer: Jasmine Toh

(Sengkang Secondary School)

Jasmine scored 20 out of 25 which is a pretty 80%.

I have 7 Secondary 2 students (both NA and Express). I gave them the same paper and I am proud to see that a few of my NA students did very well. 😀

I think it shows that it is OK that you are not one of the PSLE top scorers. As long as you work hard in secondary school, you can still catch up. I believe everything is possible and we should give the young ones hope. 🙂

Sec 3 Geometrical properties of circle ( Question solved ) See Video

Posted on

Recieved this question from one of my secondary 3 girl.

I videotaped the solutions so that my other secondary 3 students can see it.

–> Side note to JasC, you shall practice all the 60 plus questions possible untill you “kill” this topic. 😉

I thought you can skip the first video on the first part which you managed to solve. 🙂

 

Bye Bye!

Finally, time to chill out with my hubby! 😀

Ifah is a quiet and gentle girl.

She always finish whatever homework i gave. * Wise girl * if not having tuition is just getting another person to nag at you for not finishing homework. :S

By the way, I am not the kind of tutor whom students can get away without doing or finishing my homework. And i dont give A LOT of homework unless the student seriously need practice.
If this is not the kind of tuition teacher you want, please tell me gently and i can recommend another tutor for you. Hee. I have a friend who runs a tuition agency.

 

Back to Ifah, Im looking forward to her great results for EOY examinations! 🙂

P4 Daily Mathematics Exercises (Decimals). Yes, Decimals again! :)

Posted on

Realise several of my P4 students need more practice on Decimals.

I did some short questions this time.

Gold exercises are still problem sums. The questions are pretty similar to the previous gold exercises. I will repeat similar questions to ensure the students really know how to use certain concepts.

This time round i decided to give the answer so that the students will know if they got the questions correct. I realise this gives them more motivation to do the exercises.

I will still mark based on the workings. So no cheating! 😉

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Re-blogged from previous entry. ;-)

These questions are written by me and are grouped them in 3 levels based on difficulty.

Easy – Bronze Level

Intermediate – Silver Level

Challenging – Gold Level

My style:

(1) Attempt one question from each level daily.

If you notice, there is only 5 questions in each level. Yes, i know there are seven days in a week. :)  Meaning there is no daily exercises from me on weekend. I believe in rest and good time management. There will be other homework from assessment books and also homework from school.

So, students can do other homework on weekends, catch up on their rest ( like we adults do) and have some outdoor activity. :)

(2) Similar questions will be repeated if the student get the question wrong at the first exercise.

This is to enforce their understanding and build a good foundation.

Daily exercises for my younger students (P4 Decimals Problem Sums)

Posted on

Trying to develop a habit to wake up early to come up with daily exercises for my younger students.

Felt prompted to do this after i come across www.problemsum.com . I heard about it sometime ago but didnt have the chance to go and explore.  Finally, find time to go check it out after talking to one parent. Its a interesting and interactive website whereby students can go in daily to  attempt the questions and there will be virtual tutor ( whom the students has designed) that will explain to them the correct steps if the students got the question wrong. I think some of the children has designed the virtual tutor to be a cartoon dog with ribbon on its head. Wahaha! So cute!
