The Maths revision programme during the March holiday is a 4-day (12 hours) programme while in June its a 5-day (15 hours programme). While the topics taught would overlap, the focus would be different.
In the March holidays, the focus would be on reviewing and reinforcing Problem-Solving Strategies to equip students with the skills and confidence to conquer Challenging problems commonly found in Paper 2. Some of the strategies include Advance Model Drawing, Advance Branching (Remainder Concept), Equal Concept, Unchanged Total, Proportions (Number x Value) etc.These strategies cut across several major topics in PSLE Maths such as whole numbers, fractions, ratio, percentage and decimals.
In the 5-day programme in the June holidays, the focus would be both the Problem-Solving strategies (advance) as well as revision of PSLE Maths in Topical sequence. The topics that would be covered include Algebra, Numbers, Fractions, Percentage, Ratio, Geometry, Area and Perimeter, Speed, Volume and Average.
A pupil can choose to attend both programme in March and June. The strategies and topics taught may overlap but the questions and examples used would be different. In June, the programme would be more intensive involving more challenging questions and examples. In March, the focus would be on problem-solving strategies but in the June holidays it would also cover revision by topics.
