PRIMARY MATH OLYMPIAD DEC HOLIDAY ENRICHMENT
The PRIMARY MATH OLYMPIAD DECEMBER HOLIDAY ENRICHMENT is a 3-day (each day 3 hrs) programme to introduce current P4 or P5 students to techniques and skills involved in solving non-routine Math questions. As some of these Primary Math Olympiad questions are also similar to the difficult math questions found in P5 or in the PSLE, the heuristics learnt in this course will be very useful to students doing PSLE Math.
It is widely agreed that some of the non-routine or difficult PSLE Math questions are very similar to Primary Math Olympiad questions. Thus to get an A-Star for PSLE Math it may be necessary to acquire some Primary Math Olympiad problem-solving skills. Hence we encourage ALL primary school students to attend some kind of math Olympiad training before they take their PSLE Math exam. Primary Math Olympiad skills may also be useful to students taking the GEP or DSA selection tests.
