Homework Discussion: Students will start the lesson by sharing the challenges that they have encountered in their homework to their PSLE maths tutor. The teachers will then assess their queries and provide the necessary guidance. They will be required to complete their corrections in class and submit for marking. This will apply for PSLE Maths Tuition online too.
Topical Worksheets: Topical worksheets are classified into Basic, Intermediate and Advanced levels. Students will start on basic worksheets before advancing to the next level of difficulty. Students who need more time to understand the concepts will focus on strengthening their basic concepts first instead of being compelled to follow as a class. They will move on to the next worksheet when they are ready.
Mathematical concepts: In PSLE Maths Tuition Online and F2F, concepts will be taught through a discussion. Sometimes it will require dramatisation, in which students will participate to act out the story. It helps them to retain the new knowledge learnt better when their 5 senses are engaged, especially for younger children. The PSLE Maths Tutor will guide students with a few questions depending on the level of difficulty. After which, students will be tasked to do similar questions independently. The work will be marked, and mistakes will have to be corrected during class time. Once they have a good understanding of the concept, the rest of the questions may be given as homework.
Strategy: Each strategy may require dramatisation, a funny phrase or a funny song. Younger children learn better when more senses are engaged while the older ones will enjoy listening to funny stories. This interactive way of learning aids to prolong the attention period and retain information better.
Weekly Revision Sets: There will be weekly revision sets on word problems to strengthen their strategy identification and application. Questions are real school examination questions so students will be able to form realistic expectations about the level of difficulty and have insights on the questions that commonly appear. Weekly revision sets are only for P3 level and above.
Homework Assignment: P1 and 2 may not have any homework for some lessons. From P3 level onwards, students should expect homework to be assigned every lesson.
