What's next... before the next academic year?

Dear S1-01

Three items are lined-up for you... in preparation for Y2016.

(A) Holiday Fun Pack

It is a collection of activities that build on the concepts and skills they learnt in Sec 1, to deepen their understanding on selected topics. It also provides opportunity for them to see Mathematics beyond the discipline, and its application in real world.

You are strongly encouraged to attempt the fun pack before school reopens.

(B) Revision Materials

A set of Revision materials is available in the GoogleSite.

The objective is to provide additional practice for those of you who needed to close their learning gaps before the next academic year. This task is optional.

If you are attempting the questions and if you come across any questions/ doubts, do send your enquiries to me during the holidays.

(C) Preparation for Academic Year 2016 (Mathematics)

In anticipation that some of you are keen to start the preparation for Y2016 S2, a set of reading assignments (using materials from the AceLearning portal) has been assigned to students.

You can also refer to the S2 textbook or access other online resources like the Khan Academy. This task is optional.

All in all, the downloadable version (PDF) of the above tasks are available in the GoogleSite (Mathematics > S1-01)

Last but not least... for those who have yet responded to the survey... do remember to complete the survey form by 30 October 2015 (Friday)

To date, the following have already responded. Thank you.

[Revision] Direct & Inverse Proportion

During the lesson, we discussed how to solve the multiple-step problem.

As mentioned, there are several ways to present the working; nevertheless, the emphasis is the clarify of working such that the marker understands your train of thought.

Below is one way you can present your working (as I used in class).
Explanation is added in red - to help you understand how the working flows.

The suggested solution for the worksheet is available in the GoogleSite:
