Many parents and students thought that Secondary 1 Maths is just an extension from Primary 6 maths topics, but actually this is misconception. Because the methodologies being used in primary maths like “drawing models” and “guess and check” are not allowed in Secondary maths.
What are the important chapters in Secondary Maths? The answer is Algebra!
Starting from Secondary 1, the students start learning algebra in more depth and this is a very important topic because many other complex topics in Secondary Maths require the students to have very strong foundation of algebra. Experienced Secondary Maths Tutor definitely can help the students in mastering this important skill which will give the students very solid foundation even they take additional maths(Amaths) in upper secondary(Sec3 & Sec4).
The common question faced by secondary students: How to minimise the careless mistakes in Secondary Maths Exam and score well?
Take Step-by-step approach and give quality presentation
Students very often find that they cannot score well in maths due to careless mistakes. The secret to minimise or avoid the careless mistakes are good quality presentation and step-by-step approach.
Some students intend to skip the steps in presentation which will also cause the mistakes. Instead, they should take note that well-organised presentation is the key to score well in Maths. Focus more on the accuracy 1st before increasing the speed of problem-solving.
Recent changes in the marking system for O’Level Mathematics also mean that more marks may be deducted for wrong presentations and methods. Writing in short form is also NOT allowed.
Hence, it is crucial to have the correct and proper presentation and habits at the beginning of Secondary 1. Our qualified and experienced Secondary Maths tutors are well-trained and they will help the students to build up the good habits of quality presentation which students will benefit more in upper secondary maths even they take JC H1/H2 maths.
