STUDY SMARTER

We prioritize academic excellence with a strategic approach, introducing "ROL" - Return on Learning.

To achieve the highest ROL, we structured our lesson plans to build upon previous knowledge and prepare students with essential skills for future concepts. We focus on laying strong foundations through a building-block method, gradually adding complexity to ensure students grasp each concept effectively.

As forgetting is a natural part of the learning process, our programme emphasises continual reinforcement, ensuring students can retain and apply their mathematical skills effectively.

With our approach, students experience a comprehensive learning journey that not only enhances their math proficiency but also ensures lasting retention and application of knowledge.

INDEPENDENT LEARNER

We recognize that cultivating independence is a crucial aspect of a child's development. Independent learners are students who take ownership of their learning, thinking critically, and seeking answers on their own.

To foster independent learning, our teachers are specially trained to encourage students to think critically and question concepts instead of merely providing answers. We believe in nurturing their curiosity and problem-solving skills.

In addition, we have developed a range of self-learning online lessons and videos allowing students to explore essential topics and concepts at their own pace independently.

When and Why to Use the Assumption/Supposition Method Over Guess and Check

20 February 2024

BY: admin_cleverly

Guess and check is a method our children are taught when they are in their early primary years. While it is reliable and guarantees the right answer if a student were to spend enough time on each calculation, a school examination does not provide them with the luxury of going through every single one of them. Another downside of guess and check is that it involves an element of luck, as well as how strong the logical skills of your child are. If your child happens to get the answer right in their first or second calculation, then they can move on relatively quickly, but if it involves multiple tries to reach the right solution, examinations and timed tasks can turn into a difficult affair. Continue reading below if you would like to know when and why the assumption/supposition method should be used over guess and check. What is the assumption/supposition method? The assumption/supposition method, also known as the supposition method, involves strategically assuming values or conditions to simplify a problem. Unlike guess and check, which depend on trial and error, this method relies on logical deductions and problem-solving strategies to ease the solution process. Here is an example of the assumption/supposition method in action: What are the differences between the assumption/supposition method and guess and check?   Assumption/supposition Method Guess and Check Approach Based on making educated guesses and working backwards. Relies on systematic trial and error. Strategy Utilises logical deductions and problem-solving strategies. Involves trying different values systematically. Efficiency Tends to be more efficient, as guesses are based on logic. Can be time-consuming, especially for complex problems. Precision Allows for targeted and strategic solution attempts. May involve luck and exhaustive iterations. Complexity Handling Effective for problems with multiple variables or constraints. Suitable for simpler problems or situations with few variables. Time Sensitivity Advantageous in timed scenarios or examinations. May not be ideal for time-constrained situations.     When to Use the Assumption/Supposition Method Over Guess and Check?   The complexity of the problem When faced with math problems that have multiple variables and require a strategic approach, the assumption/supposition method should be your go-to choice. You break down what seems like a complex problem into manageable steps and avoid being overwhelmed. From there, you are shown a clear pathway to getting closer to the solution with each step taken. This can help students who tend to panic when faced with tough questions, especially when they are racing against the clock. Time constraints If you’re working under exam conditions, the supposition method can be a lifesaver. It gives you a structured framework within which can help you stay focused by strategically narrowing down your options based on educated assumptions. This can increase your chances of finding a solution within the allotted time. Avoiding errors The importance of avoiding errors cannot be overstated, especially in complex problem-solving scenarios. When combined with being under exam conditions, every mistake is precious marks lost as the student risks being unable to complete the paper within the time limit. If the situation calls for the minimization of errors, the supposition method directs the student to take a systematic approach guided by logic. This reduces the possibility of overlooking important details or coming to the wrong conclusions. Why is the assumption/supposition method preferred over guess and check?   Simplifies Complex Problems   Complex math problems can be overwhelming, especially if your child has a weak foundation in the subject. By making logical assumptions, the supposition method allows students to focus on specific aspects of the problem one at a time. This simplification process helps students gain a clearer understanding of the problem and makes it easier to identify potential solutions or paths forward. Provides a Structured Approach The assumption/supposition method offers a structured framework for approaching math problems. Instead of feeling overwhelmed by a problem’s complexity, students can follow a step-by-step process that guides them through the problem-solving process. This structure provides clarity and direction, helping students stay focused as they work towards finding a solution. Builds Confidence It is common for students to feel nervous when faced with exams. However, if it heightens at the sight of a math problem they find complicated, their mind may go blank, which can affect their performance. By breaking down the problem into manageable steps through the supposition method, students can build confidence as they make steady progress towards finding a solution. Encourages Critical Thinking The assumption/supposition method is about more than finding the right answer. It is about teaching students how to think critically. They’re encouraged to consider different perspectives, weigh evidence, and draw logical conclusions. This not only helps them solve math problems more effectively but also equips them with crucial skills for navigating real-world challenges.   Are you interested in learning more about the assumption/supposition method? As your child transitions to the upper levels of Primary school, they will be introduced to the assumption/supposition method. While this method is hailed as being much more effective compared to guess and check, it may be difficult to grasp for those who have a weak foundation in math. At Matrix Math, we provide primary math tuition designed to nurture independent learners who are confident in using the assumption/supposition method to solve mathematical problems effectively.   Contact us today to sign your child up for lessons with us and give them the tools they need to excel in math!

5 THINGS TO LOOK OUT MORE WHEN CHOOSING A TUITION CENTRE

14 February 2024

BY: jeanette

Choosing the right tuition centre for your child is a significant decision, and it’s crucial to navigate through the options with a keen eye. Let’s explore what factors to consider when searching for the ideal tuition centre, and why each aspect is essential in fostering your child’s academic success. 1. Schedule Flexibility Ease of Replacement Lessons: Life can be unpredictable, and scheduling conflicts may arise. Look for a tuition centre that offers flexibility in replacing missed lessons to ensure consistent learning. Availability of Home-Based Learning Options: Especially in today’s digital age, having the option for home-based learning ensures that your child can continue their studies even in challenging circumstances. 2. Curriculum Teaching Materials: Assess the quality of teaching materials provided by the tuition centre. Ask to take a look at samples of their worksheets. A robust curriculum ensures your child is exposed to well-structured and comprehensive learning resources. Additional Resources: Look for a centre that goes beyond textbooks. Additional resources such as practice exams, online platforms, or supplementary materials can enhance your child’s learning experience. 3. Class Size Smaller class sizes typically allow for more personalized attention from the tutor. This means that your child is more likely to receive tailored support, clarification on doubts, and guidance specific to their learning needs. Students may also tend to feel more comfortable and confident to actively participate in discussions, ask questions, and engage with the learning materials in a smaller group. This active involvement fosters a deeper understanding of the subject matter and encourages critical thinking skills. 4. Availability of Trial Lesson By attending a trial class, your child can get a sense of the classroom environment, including class size, student interaction, and overall atmosphere. This insight helps gauge whether the learning environment is conducive to their academic growth and whether they feel comfortable and engaged during lessons. Trial classes also provide an opportunity to evaluate the relevance and effectiveness of the curriculum offered by the tuition centre. You and your child can assess whether the content covered aligns with their academic goals and addresses their learning objectives. 5. Availability of Communication Channels Ensure there are clear channels for updates on your child’s progress, upcoming lessons, and any concerns that may arise. Effective communication between parents, teachers, and the tuition centre fosters a collaborative partnership in supporting your child’s academic development. By working together, parents and teachers can leverage their respective insights, expertise, and resources to create a supportive learning environment that maximizes the child’s potential. In the end, the right tuition centre acts as a valuable partner in your child’s educational journey. By carefully considering these factors, you’re setting the stage for a positive and enriching learning experience.
