Orchard Tutor ex-RJC grad/ACJC grad full time tutor for IGCSE IB Diploma IP GCE O level PSLE Primary, Secondary and International Schools Tuition Home Based Premium Education by eduKate Tuition Centre

Sec Maths Tutor in Punggol teaching MOE Syllabus tuition classes for E and A Maths.

Maths tuition for Punggol students that requires that extra boost, have an edge, gain the distinction in their secondary education. Our Math classes are designed to teach the whole topic from scratch, get a very good foundation with through understanding and ace all the advance questions that are required in the GCE O levels.

Our tuition classes are for students who would like to achieve a distinction in their O levels. Students come to eduKate to be trained, learn how to increase their study skills, attain habits of distinction, put in the work necessary to be the best.

We understand the need to provide classes for two types of students, One that requires a good tutor to train their foundation to have a proper understanding of their Math, and secondly, one that gives them the edge to achieve a distinction in their GCE O levels. They both come for our tuition centres.

Why come to eduKate Singapore?

we make the best out of our students

we keep pushing our students to be the best there is

we take no prisoners in achieving the targets needed for a distinction

we guide with a gentle arm, and train with a strong fist

Course information, Outline and Introduction to GCE O-level Mathematics Syllabus and Curriculum for Secondary Schools. MOE SEAB GCE Ordinary level Mathematics (A and E Maths) Syllabus for the Express Stream from Secondary 1 to 4.

This article is an overview of the GCE O-level Mathematics Courses available to Secondary Express Students attending MOE Secondary Schools.

Recap of Primary PSLE Syllabus. With in-depth and advancement upon:

the Four Operations,

Integers, Fractions, real Numbers,

Ratio,

Speed and

Percentage

Geometry and Angles

Perimeter and Area

Volume and Surface Area of Prism and Cylinders

Statistics- Line Graph, Pie Chart etc.

Basic Algebra

New to Secondary 1 Mathematics students

Prime Numbers, HCF, LCM, Square root and Cube roots

Approximation and Estimation

Algebra Expansion and Factorisation

Algebra Equations and problem solving

Number Patterns

Plotting of Cartesian Coordinate and Graphs

Polygons and Angles. Interior and Exterior Angles of Polygons

Geometrical Constructions and Angle/Perpendicular Bisectors

Course Synopsis

Secondary 1 Mathematics is an introduction to secondary level mathematics and a recap of previous skills learnt from PSLE Primary Syllabus. Only Elementary Mathematics is taught in Secondary 1.

Secondary 1 Mathematics teaches a broader approach into the use of mathematics and introduces a more general solution of using algebra to solve sums. It introduces the key concepts that will be further developed in the next few years the types of number systems, usage of ratio and proportion, angles, statistics, graphs, algebra and number patterns.

Streaming year and level of competence in mathematics will be tested to go into Science specific courses.

Direct and Inverse Proportions

Simultaneous Equations and Linear graphs

Expansion and Factorisation of Quadratic Expressions

Algebraic Fractions and Formulae

Linear And Quadratic Graphs

Congruence and Similarity

Trigonometric Ratios TOA CAH SOH

Pythagoras Theorem

Volume and Surface Area of Pyramids Cones and Spheres

Probability

Mean Median Mode

Statistics and Diagrams

Course Synopsis:

Streaming year. Secondary 2 Mathematics is algebra specific and develops upon Sec 1 work. The level of difficulty is higher due to the Streaming year into their upper secondary classes. Ability to option Additional Mathematics as a new O-level topic. Examinations and work throughout will filter students into their mathematical abilities. Algebra being the biggest hurdle. Pace of information delivery is hectic as compared to Sec 1 Mathematics.

Secondary 3

Mathematics Courses Available: Elementary Mathematics and Additional Mathematics.

Course overview:

Mathematics forks out to Additional Mathematics and Elementary Mathematics. Another jump in pace and need to naturalise Additional Mathematics culture into their studies.

Elementary Mathematics:

Part 1) Further exploration of

Coordinate Geometry

Quadratic Equations and Functions

Trigonometry

Congruence and Similarity Tests

Graphs of functions and solution.

Part 2) New Topics of

Radian Measure, Arc Length and Area of Sectors

Linear Inequalities

Indices and Standard Form

Area and Volume of Similar Figures and Solids

Geometrical Properties of Circles

Course Synopsis

Elementary Mathematics of Sec 3 introduces upper secondary concepts and 50% of the work are further developments of Sec 2 topics. Assumption that proficiency of algebra manipulation and Sec 1 and Sec 2 topics are well developed and efficiently applied to Sec 3 topics. New topics introduced in Sec 3 are heavily dependent on algebra manipulation and equation solving skills.

Additional Mathematics:

The 2 Year course in Additional Mathematics means different schools will be completing different chapters before the end of Sec 3. But generally, this will be before they start on Calculus topics of Differentiation and Integration.

Quadratic Equations and Inequalities

Indices Surds and Logarithms

Polynomials and Partial Fractions

Binomial Expansions

Modulus Functions

Trigonometry, Identities, Double Angle Formula etc.

Coordinate Geometry

Proofs in Plane Geometry

Course Synopsis

Advanced concepts in Mathematics for students interested in attempting Pure Science Courses in JC and Science/Engineering Programmes in Polytechnic. Algebra is still de rigueur to do well in Additional Maths. Pace of information shall be quick and since all topics are fairly disconnected, students are required to learn different concepts that does not have a common bearing. It is taxing but essential subject for future relevant courses in tertiary education Kindly note that Singapore uses a distinctly different Addition Mathematics syllabus for GCE O-level as compared to other countries.

Secondary 4

Course Overview

GCE O-level preparation begins. Separated into two distinct parts, new topics and revision. All topics are completed latest July, and revisions should begin and include doing all past year test papers and the TYS.

Elementary Mathematics

Vectors

Cumulative Frequency

Standard Deviation

Probability

Matrices

Revision from Sec1-4

Course Synopsis

Getting ready for and round up of the GCE O-level course. They are relatively digestible topics but essential to the overall outcome of a students’ education. The other half of the year should be spent ramping up in preparation of the O-level examinations.

Additional Mathematics

Course overview

Year 2 of 2 and completion of Additional Mathematics. Merging the previous years’ topics with Calculus-Differentiation and Integration.

Differentiation

Integration

Kinematics-Particle Motion on a straight line

Course Synopsis

Polarising students into liking Calculus or hating it. Differentiation, Integration and Kinematics will round up Additional Mathematics for the O-level. Taking everything that is taught in Sec 3 A maths and using it as components for Calculus means that students that has a good foundation will be able to handle Sec 4. Have a shaky foundation means that students will struggle trying to include previous topics when doing calculus. Getting distinctions requires students to be fast, meticulous and detailed. Knowing every linkages and heuristics to complete the whole O-level paper on time.
