Hi, OnSponge seems to be tailored for High Ability learners... but if you truly feel like giving it a go, OnSponge Essential Problem Solving Skills is definitely much easier.adaline wrote:weak in math? The onsponge essential or the other onsponge problem?

Then how about Get Me Thinking? Is the standard same as Onsponge Essential or the easier OnSponge PS Skills?sky minecrafter wrote:Hi, OnSponge seems to be tailored for High Ability learners... but if you truly feel like giving it a go, OnSponge Essential Problem Solving Skills is definitely much easier.adaline wrote:weak in math?

DD's school uses Get Me Thinking (GMT) for the top 2 P6 classes during her PSLE year. DD is sec 1 this year.cyberette wrote:Then how about Get Me Thinking? Is the standard same as Onsponge Essential or the easier OnSponge PS Skills?

Frankly, having guided her and working with her through GMT, my personal take is this : PSLE maths questions is nowhere near most of the questions in GMT, and I told her if a question is similar to those in GMT is really out, skip that sum and do the rest first.

Challenging practice papers / assessment books are like double-edged sword - it either boost or kill a child's confidence. Make sound adjustments accordingly.

Hi, I agree with BlueBells. GetMeThinking is more challenging than OnSponge Conquer Problem Sums, but not necessary if you are tackling PSLE. In fact, I find GMT has less interesting user-interface.cyberette wrote:Then how about Get Me Thinking? Is the standard same as Onsponge Essential or the easier OnSponge PS Skills?
