• The Math Classroom

    ONLINE

    As Featured on Channel News Asia and Sunday Times

    The Math Classroom Online is the home-based learning version of The Math Classroom.

    It was conceived due to popular demand by students during COVID and after.

     

    The Math Classroom is one of the top math centres in the country.

    Over the last 3 years, 96% of our students have achieved A*s and As in the PSLE math paper.

     

    The Math Classroom’s mission is to help every student get into their top-choice

    secondary school by excelling in mathematics

  • What is the learning format?

     

    • Students learn the same educational content as at our centres.
    • The lesson will be very structured with opportunities for students to ask questions at strategic points.
    • There will be opportunities to work in pairs to foster group learning.
    • There may be quizzes at the end of each lesson to assess learning.
    • Students will be assigned homework and are encouraged to go over course material at their leisure after each lesson to internalize their learning. This is very important given the reduced interaction that is inevitable with online learning.

    The above format allows us to harness the benefits of online learning and maximize the learning benefits for students.

     

    1

    Teachers will go through the lesson notes and examples, highlighting the important ideas and points of note.

    2

    Students will be given time to tackle questions under close supervision of the teacher

    3

    Some lessons will be of a shorter duration of 90 mins, so to maintain high levels of student engagement throughout the lesson.

    4

    The questions will be more varied for our online class; this promotes creative thinking and discussion among students.

    5

    Teachers may promote peer learning by allowing small group work in breakout rooms, and highlighting or discussing work done by students in the class

    6

    Students will be allocated homework, which lets them engage with the material in depth and increases their problem-solving proficiency.

    7

    There may be quizzes and games at the end of the lesson to challenge students.

  • Is this format of learning suitable for all students?

    While learning online is more convenient for students and parents, it may not be suitable for everyone. The ideal student for our online lessons:

    1

    Self-discipline

    Has self-discipline to complete his homework at home. This will ensure that his learning progress does not fall behind his peers in class.

     

    2

    Enjoy Math

    Enjoys learning math and has a strong desire and motivation to improve.

    3

    Proactive

    Takes charge of his learning and is willing to proactively ask questions and clarify doubts in class

    4

    Focus

    Has a strong attention span and can remain focused with an online lesson for 90 minutes

    5

    Motivation

    Is a B student or A student who wants to make significant improvements and consistently score A*s and As in tests and exams.

    Who will be teaching

    these lessons?

     

    The lessons will be taught by regular teachers from The Math Classroom, who are experienced and highly qualified. Many are degree holders with math and math-related degrees and have collectively contributed to our laudable track record of having a 96% distinction rate in the PSLE math paper from 2017 to 2019.

     

  • What software and

    hardware are needed?

    We will courier the assignments to students before each lesson. Lessons will be conducted on Zoom. Students should have access to a computer and reliable high-speed internet access.

    In addition to the laptop, it is recommended to use a separate tablet as a document camera or projector, so that teachers can monitor the student’s work in real time. Phones can be mounted with a table-top phone or tablet holder, available in many stores including Amazon SG.
