8 SIMEX 2006 Methodist Girls' School Why MGS partnered with HeyMath! It was definitely NOT to implement IT for the sake of IT It was to enrich and enhance the Teaching and Learning of Maths

9 SIMEX 2006 Methodist Girls' School HeyMath! – A virtual extension of our Maths Department! Differentiated learning through HeyMath! projects (eg: statistics and straight line graphs) Interactive Games To enrich Math instruction Animated lessons (construction, relative velocity, …) Interactive activities to reinforce concepts (properties of quad, …) Reading assignments for self-learning (applications of logarithms, …) To innovate assessment Online tests with auto grading (diagnostic, summative, revision) Online tests from the question bank Performance analysis across level, within classes, etc Pupil-centered learning

11 SIMEX 2006 Methodist Girls' School In initial years, there was apprehension among students and teachers about the benefits of HeyMath! To derive maximum value from HeyMath!, we adopted these strategies – Constant customization of Heymath lessons – Integrated HeyMath! into the Scheme of work – Online tests calculated as 10% - 20% of CA – Professional Sharing among teachers – Regular communication with HeyMath! via helpdesk How MGS implemented HeyMath!

14 SIMEX 2006 Methodist Girls' School What students say about HeyMath! Judith Ong, Sec 1 I think that heymath was a really good thing because it helped me understand mathematics better and i was able to print out notes and stuff to help me revise for my mathematics test=)thanks Stephanie Si, Sec 2 I think that it is good that such a website is created to help us students gain a better understanding for maths. The visuals and animations are the best in doing so. Keep up the good job!

15 SIMEX 2006 Methodist Girls' School What students say about HeyMath! Deborah Chan, Sec 3 Step by step working shown in the lessons have helped in the understanding of the various topics. Amiirah Nur Raudhah Bte S H, Sec 4 It really helps in my revision. We learnt that histograms and cumulative frequency graphs are also useful in real life situations and in businesses. It gives us a clearer picture about the situation, in this case, the running of a theme park. Statistics also help us to understand about the construction of a theme park. Overall, this is a good way to learn statistics. -group 5 theme park Denise Tan and Stella Ong What did we learn from the statistics project
