Since he has no tuition or any help, I just want to make sure he has good understanding of what was being taught. Yesterday, he came home with some homework on HCF and LCM. He doesn't know what those are? I had to find my own resources and taught him concepts like prime numbers, divisibility and then he could do the worksheets.
Just wondering where all the notes are, or was he listening in class?
I don't think it is a good idea to put the kid in tuition for any subject. Don't want to kill his love for learning. But need to know what the syllabus is, so that I can at least know whether he is on the right track or whether he needs explanation. Hm, nothing leh... Guess I'll write to the teacher...
It is the way they are being taught, sometimes I also question my son why are some of the concept in the question not taught in class. The expectation is that they are suppose to do alot of research on their own and then I believe they will reinforce in the subsequent lessons.
Somehow, I realise that GEP like to cramp alot of things in the beginning of the year and things will starts to taper off as time goes by. So hang in there and give alot of support to the kids.
Happy scratching your head on the questions,
