Hello All,

We thank the children and parents who came for the free session. It was wonderful learning and we enjoyed it much as Peter Lim conducted the experiments with great discussions and interactions.

Questions from P6 Students (Fridays A* Achievers)

1 Mar

1. David, Kumar and Irfan go to the gym on 2nd June and rest on the next day.  After the rest day, David goes to the gym every 2 days, Kumar goes there every 3 days and Irfan goes there every 4 days.  When will they next meet in the gym again?

2. Jane has more stamps than Danny.  If Jane gave Danny 1/3 of her stamps, Danny will have 200 more stamps than Jane.  If Jane gave Danny 1/4 of her stamps, Danny will have 100 more stamps than Jane.  How many stamps does Jane have?

There were some ten-cent coins and fifty-cent coins in a piggy bank.  The number of ten-cent coins in the piggy bank was 1/2 of the number of fifty-cent coins.  Ahmad took out 5 fifty-cent coins and exchanged them for ten-cent coins.  Then he put the money back into the piggy bank.  The number of fifty-cent coins became 5/8 of the number of ten-cent coins.  How much money was there in the piggy bank?

March Holiday Program at Math Arena!

1 Mar

Coming Up: March Holiday Classes, 18 to 21 March 2014 (Tue – Fri)

Look out for PSLE A* Achievers, Fusion Math, Problem Solving Heuristics, High Achiever Science …

Dear parents and pupils,

Term 1 is almost ending. The March school holiday is a new season to take stock of our learning and to prepare for the new term. We are conducting classes to boost up your skills and knowledge. There is an Early Bird Discount Scheme (by 10 March 2014), do take advantage of it.

Programme Highlights:

PSLE A* Achievers class is suitable for all P6 pupils who are taking PSLE Math this year. We aim to equip pupils with effective methods to solve complex math problems.

We train pupils in higher-order thinking skills and teach them multiple approaches in handling challenging questions.

This March holiday, we are going to build up pupils’ confidence and help them watch out for common mistakes. They do need to cut down on carelessness to bring up results.


Advanced Math Skills will be taught in Fusion Math classes so pupils with higher ability can be stretched beyond their level.

Having a group of innovative and agile thinkers makes teaching and learning an energetic experience for both trainer and pupils. For pupils who are easily bored by the same drill in math, here they get to be challenged and engaged in learning many useful skills and knowledge ahead of their peers. Classes for P2 to P6 Fusion Math are available!  For March Holiday P6 Fusion Math classes, our main objective is revision of advanced solving techniques used to tackle math competition questions through closely-simulated mock papers.  P6 students who are preparing the Singapore Mathematical Olympiad for Primary Schools (SMOPS) competition are welcome to take on this 2-day course.

For current P4 and P5 pupils, we are doing Problem Solving Heuristics. I do think that it is important for pupils to spend an intensive period during the March school break, to focus on building up a strong foundation in problem solving heuristics skills.

It is needful to take time to clarify pupils’ misconceptions and clear their doubts in active classroom discussions. Heuristics skills taught will help them to tackle the long questions in Booklet B.

PSLE High Achiever Science classes are meant to not only strengthen our P6 students’ science concepts but also to teach them how to tackle potential tricky questions in PSLE and the right techniques to apply during the examination.


This year, we’ve specially partnered with renowned guide book author, Mr. Peter Lim, to introduce our brand new program – Science in Motion – exclusive for this March Holiday!  Peter Lim has written many well-received, popular physics and chemistry guide books for secondary schools on top of 20 years of teaching experience. He has developed a comprehensive and exciting hands-on Science Program for both Primary and Secondary students and will be sharing it with students from Math Arena! For more information regarding Science in Motion March Holiday Program, please do not hesitate to call us.
