We use the introduction of Algebra at this level to equip students with an alternative strategy towards problem solving, as this hinges very heavily on the Abstract Stage in the CPA Approach.
Topics introduced at Primary 5 will also be covered in depth at this level – Fractions, Decimals, Ratio, Percentage and Geometry. New topics such as Area & Perimeter of Circles, Speed and Solid Geometry conclude the syllabus for Mathematics.
By the end of the year, students would also be equipped with the full range of Heuristics such as Restating the Question, Logical Reasoning and Forming Algebraic / Simultaneous Equations — all of which are useful techniques to to help them better tackle challenging questions at the PSLE.
Math lessons are taught in the TCher SG Digital Classroom, a content-rich and interactive learning space packed with fun features such as e-trophy rewards, real-time quizzes and more — all designed to engage your child, spark their interests and deepen learning.
Weekly classes are split over two formats to ensure enhanced understanding and mastery:
‘LIVE webinar lectures — Hour-long sessions taught by MOE-trained educators only. Covering key concepts, critical techniques and practice time.
Small-group online tutorials — Capped at six to eight students only, so teachers can give more attention to each student’s unique needs and your child gets ample guidance and practice time in each topic, question type, and examinable component.
For even more focused guidance, we also offer personalised 1-on-1 online classes where students get customised coaching and guidance from our teachers.
Beyond class time, your child will also have 24/7 access to TCher SG’s learning
resources — critical learning tools that students can use to reinforce learning, revise
weak topics and prepare for school assessments, all at their own time and pace.
