Chewy Math - Discussion

Postby Adele Yeo » Thu Jan 29, 2015 2:40 pm

Dear Parent,

Chewy Math is founded in October 2014. We believe in the potential in every child to do well. Through the star chart and reward system, we aim to make learning easy yet fun. With a smaller class size and step by step learning approach, we help the children to understand the creative and fun concepts. We also encourage the children to think on their feet and being able to solve the question independently. They will thus gain confidence and do even better and their potential will be unleashed.

In this forum, I will be posting interesting concept and questions. To open up for discussion.

Interesting Concept 1: Order of operations

Method 1: Royalty
Brackets (Castle)
Multiply/ Divide (King & Queen)
Plus/Minus (Prince & Princess)
=> Left to Right

We need to solve those in the Castle first. For the equation in the bracket, the king/queen followed by prince/princess rule still follows.
And it's always left to right rule if both (only king and queen) or (only prince and princess) are in the equation.

Method 2: BODMAS
Bracket
Order
Divide
Multiply
Addition
Subtraction

Interesting Concept 2: Units

1 km => 1000m
1 kg => 1000g
1 litre => 1000ml =>1000cm3 (cubic centimetre)

Only this is different:
1m => 100cm

OTHERS:
Annually - every year
Monthly - every month
Weekly - every week
Dozen - 12

1 hour - 60 minutes - 3600 seconds
1 minute - 60 seconds
