Title: Preschool Maths Coaching in Singapore

Frequently Asked Questions
1. What is unique about program?
  • Spiral Curriculum Approach
  • self taught ability, active independent
    learning habits.
  • Structure workbooks
  • mathematical processing skills, challenging
    problem solving.
  • Activities using manipulatives tools
  • provide concrete-pictorial-abstract development
    of concepts. Skills development thru hands-on

2. What is the difference between
and other Mathematics program?
  • Curriculum includes a combination of both
    Creative Thinking and Problem Solving skills.
  • Syllabus are aligned with topics require to be
    covered by MOE.
  • Personalise learning materials to train
    independent thinking skills.

3. What are the Mathematical skills covered in
the program?
  • Numerical calculation
  • Logic reasoning
  • Life application
  • Visualisation
  • Observation
  • Judgment
  • Combination Thinking

4. What are the Heuristics Problem Solving skills
covered in the program?
  • Work backwards
  • Restate the problem
  • Before and After
  • Repeated Identity
  • Guess and Check
  • List a table
  • Pattern

5. Why is there a need to perform a diagnostic
test upon enrollemt?
  • The program has 40 books in a year. We need to
    assess the mathematical ability of the child
    before deciding on which level of entry is
  • We focus on bridging an individual childs
    learning gap in Mathematics instead of a one size
    fits all approach.

6. What is the purposes of the hands on
  • Other than computation skills in the learning of
    Mathematics, there many other thinking skills, as
    stated earlier that are important.
  • The activities are a series of structure games
    to motivate the students to play or work on
    such that the various thinking skills can be

7. Are the number of pages in the books
  • Over-emphasizing on procedural skills without
    understanding the underlying mathematics
    principles (rote learning) will kill interest in
    the learning of Mathematics.
  • The number of pages in the books are sufficient
    to achieve optimum learning in the child.

8. How can my child learn if there is no white
board teaching?
  • Students do not learn to think better by simply
    hearing correct answers or passive teaching from
    the Instructor. They will only think when the
    Instructor ask them a question.
  • Though our questions posing techniques, students
    discover and explore mathematics concepts,
    develop interest and confidence in solving
    Mathematics problems.
