The PSLE grading system has changed. But learning outcomes remain the same – students need to minimally achieve basic competency in a subject to score well, and then progress to beyond-basics application to really score high.
And heuristics is still the key to achieving upper ALs (Achievement Levels) today – just as it was to achieving A/A* in the former T-score system.
Heuristics is an invaluable life skill. It is especially important when it comes to fact-and-logic situations; in subjects like Maths and Science. Simply put, this higher-order problem-solving tool equips students to:
Most parents are already unfamiliar with the new Maths and Science techniques their children are being taught today.
Coupled with not knowing what to make of the new PSLE AL grading system, it is no wonder many feel frustrated trying to help their children keep up in these subjects.
Worse still, some may even unknowingly teach their children the old inefficient methods, and end up further confusing their children.
That is why we have organised two Parents’ Seminars – one each for Maths and Science.
Among all the heuristics techniques for Maths, one stands out as the most powerful – Unit Transfer Method.
It empowers students to answer 90% of challenging word problems across topics involving whole numbers, fractions, decimals, percentages and ratios – each in less than 5 minutes!
It is a proven technique for solving the hardest questions designed to differentiate AL1 students from others.
Our Maths specialist and Principal Trainer, Gene Gan will dive deep into Unit Transfer Method and show how to use it to solve challenging problems.
Pick up skills like how to identify keywords, problem scenario and the best heuristics technique for the scenario.
Learn how you can help your child eliminate careless mistakes.
The session will be based on the bestselling "Unit Transfer Method” guidebook. Participants will be given a complimentary copy.
Don’t miss this opportunity to learn Unit Transfer Method – the very technique that your child is taught – and be able to correctly guide your child.
AL1 students are differentiated by their ability to conduct and convey their findings, analysis, recommendations and conclusions systematically and accurately.
This is where the ready-to-use TCR heuristics framework helps students acquire all these skills.
The session is based on the bestselling “TCR Answering Technique” guidebook. Participants will be given a complimentary copy.
Grab this opportunity to learn the TCR Answering Technique, and be equipped to correctly guide your child.
As a team, our heuristics methodologies have been covered by The Straits Times, The Business Times, TODAY, FM938LIVE, and a variety of parenting magazines.
Gene is committed to helping students and parents gain confidence in the use of Maths Heuristics. His ability to break down complex sums into simple digestible forms has enabled his students to achieve distinction in the National exams. Gene, who rose from a trainee in the Ministry of Education to the rank of Head of Department of Mathematics, will share his expertise in tackling challenging Mathematics problems efficiently. Many educators have tapped on his experience in setting Mathematics exam papers, and he is a sought-after reviewer of Mathematics textbooks and guidebooks
Linda seeks to empower students and parents to enhance their problem-solving skills with Science Heuristics. For more than a decade, she was a teacher with the Ministry of Education. Since 2010, she has made her mark in the private education sector, a noted specialist in coaching Science top primary school students. Through the years, she has helped many students climb two or more grades with her teaching. Linda has also been successful in guiding students with learning needs. She is the author of two books on Science Answering Techniques.
Don’t miss this opportunity! Hear our heuristics specialists demo the Unit Transfer Method (Maths) and the TCR Answering Techniques (Science) on past-year exam questions. And realise just how within reach it is for your child to move up AL bands – simply by learning and mastering heuristics.
Our signature step-by-step guidance ensures every parent can keep up during our webinars, even if they have never heard of heuristics Unit Transfer Method or TCR.
