Our Programmes Structured weekly problem sums Use of ICT in Math Learning Support Math Olympiad training for selected high ability students identified by GE Branch Differentiated Curriculum
Rationale behind our Programmes Structured weekly problem sums Help students learn the different skills / heuristics Use of ICT Equip students with the necessary life skills Learning Support Provide support to students who need help

Housekeeping Encourage your child to draw models. Model drawing is a useful tool to help students visualize the problem, and translate words into pictorial representation. Model drawing allows the child to see a faster and shorter solution in solving word problems. Insist on neat and legible handwriting and work. Writing neatly and legibly helps students avoid careless mistakes. It also helps students from losing marks if markers interpret the writing wrongly. Please sign your child’s completed work/tests when they are requested by your child’s Math teacher. Your child will feel encouraged as you show your concern. You are also given timely feedback on your child’s progress.
Differentiated Curriculum The purpose To allow students to work on skills appropriate to their readiness level and to explore mathematics applications. The content Students who require a lot of help – direct instruction (teaching step-by-step) in the teaching of SHPS Math curriculum Students who are average performers – SHPS Math curriculum Students who have an aptitude in Math – exploration and investigative work beyond SHPS Math curriculum
Heuristics to be covered 1.The 4 cases of ratio 2.Bags and Boxes (Simultaneous Equation) 3.Pattern Questions a. Linear equation b. Non – Linear equation c. Square number d. Quadratic equation 4. Working Backwards 5. Branching method 6. Model drawing
Files 1. Three Blue files a.Word problems b.MPAH c.SQ worksheets & Exam papers 2. Ring Files a.Mr Nizam’s personal worksheets Pupils will do filing whenever papers are returned to them after all corrections are marked. Parents will sign on the cover page placed in the files. All files will be returned 2 weeks prior to exam.

How to score well in a Science Exam paper Section A : 30 Multiple Choice Questions (MCQ) 60 marks (2m per question) Aim for perfect score in Section A (i.e. 60 marks) Section B : Open-ended questions (OE) 40 marks Analyze : diagrams / data / results of given experiments Highlight key words in the stem question Use appropriate scientific terms Questions with “Explain”, “Give reasons”, “Why” require elaborated answers with Science concepts State Science concepts in relation to the question for “Explain” questions
Topical & Past Years exam papers Topical Papers are SHPS Past Years Exams Questions Topical Papers & 2014 CA1 and SA1 papers from various GEP schools will be given termly for practice. Please ensure that your child does these with diligence Purpose: to prepare your child for the Written Examination in content & speed of completion a good gauge for the child/teacher/parent on how prepared and ready your child is, for the PSLE in October.
