GEP was only implemented from 1984. :wink:


DH & me also not from GEP. We did not miss the boat, the boat was still in the drafting stage during our times. :rotflmao:
So, we never got to find out but I believed my DS got that genes from his dad as I'm hopeless with Math. :stupid:


I think my dd got my hb's gene cos my hb's sis and bro also has one ge kid respectively.

:rahrah:

I know a few. And they're naturally 'gifted', ie no training involved.

Mmm... I think in my case skip generation :lol: . DD most likely got her genes from Grandpa. Hubby never got past the "convoluted language" in their Math problem sums. I give up completely on Math and Science this year, and surrendering on English compre soon. Haha.....

is GEP Maths curriculum so different from mainstream Maths curriculum ? if Yes, how much far off, and in what kind of Maths topics ? can give example(s) ?


Hi phtthp,

Unfortunately it is very different from the mainstream Maths curriculum. They pitch one or 2 level higher. At GEP P4, it is not so bad, from experience, they pitch at about P5. At P5, pitch around P6 and a little Sec 1 and P6 at Sec 1 or 2.

I hate their project or extended study or whatever they call it!!! I remember once she did this "Break the Code". I "break my brain" after 2 weeks and asked a relative who is a PHD holder to help her. He has to consult his professor who throws it back at him. He solved it for me in the end.


Hi Lynn,

I remember those projects too. We posed the question to some working statisticians and others who use math theory in their work for fun and they could not solve it. :D We had a good laugh because here the adults were all confused while the kids just merrily completed the project with little stress. :D

It is P6. Something to do with some barcode thingy. If you guys really interested, i can share the actual assignment. I keep it for momento - a P6 assignment to be solved by a PHD holder. Xiao!! Apparently all my dd classmates cant do either. My dd has to teach them all after she got the solution from my relative. :slapshead:


I'd be interested to know if the teacher could solve it. :)

Nope. I know this one family very well. The parents are quite bochap. No tuition, no stress. The kids are happy go lucky but score straight As even at A levels.
