WHY MATH BOOSTER?

ylc-ideology

1. Develops your child’s mathematical IQ

Math Booster programme places emphasis on problem-solving skills and critical thinking skills in students.

2. Tracks your child’s progress

The ability to monitor and track your child’s progress is our assurance to you when you enrol him/her in the Math Booster programme. You will obtain quarterly updates on your child’s learning progress and performance.

a. Pre-course diagnostic test
This initial diagnostic test is done to determine your child’s understanding level and learning gap before he/she starts the lesson. The result of the test is used to determine the level of difficulty of worksheets that your child will be doing. In other words, we customise the worksheets according to your child’s ability!

b. Weekly report
To enable you to closely track your child’s learning, a weekly report will be emailed to you after every lesson. The report will include what was taught during the lesson, your child’s performance and areas of strengths and weaknesses.

c. Quarterly diagnostic test / report
A quarterly diagnostic test will be given to evaluate your child’s performance and identify any learning gaps to bridge over the next three months. The quarterly progress report will contain details on what your child has learned or covered in the past three months, areas which your child has done well and areas for improvement.

3. Challenges your child’s power of reasoning (tested and proven)

Understanding that everyone’s learning pace is different, we will be using different strategies for different learning needs. High performing students will be challenged. Average students will be coached progressively to move on to the next level. Students will be coached and provided with the essential skills for them to move on to the next level of study.

MATH BOOSTER APPROACH

With the use of our worksheets, the programme will impart both the mathematical theory and application skills to your child in every lesson. This learning method allows students to excel in the concepts taught. Immediate application of concepts will fortify your child’s understanding.Arrow

Heuristic Problem Solving Skills

ylc-heuristic

Developed by ex-MOE teachers and PSLE markers, the distinctiveness of the Math Booster lies in its progressive and systematic approach (matrix-method_tm-3) of classifying complex math problem sums to facilitate effective and efficient learning, understanding, recall and revision.

The framework of the Math Booster programme first organises questions by topics then by types, as math problems of similar types have same approaches and concepts. Our worksheets are designed following this framework and will allow your child to apply his/her learning in a disciplined and consistent manner, as the mathematical concepts would be deep rooted in your child’s mind with the constant application.

Nurture your child into an independent learner with a confidence boost through the Math Booster programme!

matrix-system_tm-3

The  matrix-method_tm-3  has successfully developed students’ mathematical ability.

All mathematical topics and concepts contain some ‘sub-topics’ and ‘sub-concepts’ that are usually mixed and combined by examiners to challenge your child. We simplify the problem solving process by classifying each topic and concept and teach your child to use the best solving methods for each mathematical problem.

The  matrix-method_tm-3  was developed based on extensive research on Singapore’s top primary school examination papers to understand how diverse concepts are applied and tested in problem sums. It was found that for every basic concept there will be many ‘sub-concepts’ that can be applied in a problem sum question to test your child’s understanding and ability. Take for an example, the basic concept of ‘Part & Whole’ contains more than 10 different ‘sub-concepts’ that can complicate the question, resulting in no one single method to solve questions of similar concept.

Identifying which appropriate method to use for each problem sum is challenging as concepts and sub-concepts can be tested in a variety of ways. To overcome this issue, we will teach your child to classify each concept and tag the best solving methods to it throughout the programme. Once your child has mastered topics and concepts of a field, he/she will be able to progress to the next level.
