Closure... Maths Class 2012

Dear S1-09

It's been a pleasure to be with you on your maiden learning journey in SST :)

In our attempt to make the learning experience more enriching and to bring out the "SST Flavour: Applied Learning with Technology use", several "new" approaches were introduced over the past few months. To name a few:
  • 6 AM Quiz
  • Story Marathon @ Facebook that bring a twist 
  • "Coffee Table book" @ Facebook on the topic of Geometry
  • Outdoor Data Collection Mission (eLearning activity cum Performance Task)
  • Problem Solving related to real life (e.g. The Cornfield Corn)
  • Hands-on activities like folding of rectangular sheets to learn about expansion
  • Formative assessment before the major assessments
  • Assessment through Viva Voce (Practice & Performance task)
  • Activities such as analysing the PSI values of different parts of Singapore at different times of the year
  • Creating Posters for the topic on Estimation
  • ...
Remember to attempt the closure survey posted at the GoogleSite (Announcement Page), which would be very helpful in shaping the kind of learning experiences you would like to have in the following year.

September Holiday... What's Up?

Dear S1-09

It is important for us to make good use of this holiday to get ourselves ready for the end-of-year exam.

There are several things that you

  • HAVE TO do...
    • Groundwork for Term 4 topics which you are pretty familiar with since primary school.
    • Go through the textbook and Acelearning materials before trying out the following:
      • Homework for (S1) Chap 9: Ratio, Rate & Speed
      • Homework for (S1) Chap 10: Percentage
    • We shall go through these when school re-opens.
    • Final Performance Task (Viva Voce) - Announcement page in GoogleSite
  • SHOULD do... 
    • Make sure that all handouts (especially the Homework) are attempted. Submit the unmarked worksheets by the first day when school reopens.
    • Revise Algebra (S2) Study notes - in particular, the expansion (esp using special products) and factorisation - we will continue with the topic when school reopens.
    • Start your revision if you have not done so... The exam preparation booklet would be a helpful guide. Most of the answers would be uploaded to the GoogleSite by the end of the holiday. Look out for the announcement in the Maths site.
Please refer to the GoogleSite for more details.

Remember to plan your time well. 
Take some good rest, especially the weekend before school reopens so that you are fully-recharged when return to school for the finale term :)
