No Tution for Maths - Lower Primary

Postby Green-apple » Tue Jan 14, 2014 2:38 pm

Dear All,

My DS is in P2 now. He has no maths tuition and he scored quite well for P1. May I know how to maintain?

Best Regards,

Advance learning. At least one year in advance. That should maintain result.
This is manageable only if child is good in that particular subject. Otherwise will be stressful.

My friend's dd in p2 too. Already completed p2 syllabus, embarking on p3 syllabus and maths Olympiad books. She will learn the topic then teach her dd.

Although personally, I find this a very tedious method (for parents, not child).

Constant revision is necessary. If your child is good, expose him to heuristics questions. However, if you think that he is lagging behind, some remediation is needed so that his foundation is always there for him to progress.

Make sure he understands everything taught in school. If he needs extra practice, get him some books to work on, a few questions a day. Encourage speed, accuracy, and if he is interested, you can get puzzle books to develop thinking skills. I don't think that tuition or teaching ahead is necessary to stay ahead if the child is innately strong in Maths. One of my daughters has not had tuition or been taught ahead, but we are always willing to answer questions if she has any. She's always done very well in Maths up to now (going into sec 4).
