A Heartwarming Note from a Parent

15 Nov

A parent sent a Thank-You note to one of our trainers.

Students also wrote in their thoughts and feelings about trainers who have been coaching them this entire semester:

Question from Weekly Prized Science Hub Challenge (12 November)

12 Nov

Closing Date: 25 November 2012

Since young, Rayne has a big interest in automotive. He loves collecting various types of car miniatures, starting from racing cars, luxury cars, ambulances, and even military tanks.

To satisfy his interest, his parents brought him to visit their relative who works in an automobile service centre.

While walking around the place, Rayne found a lot of unused bald tyres in one corner.

Motivated by his curiosity, he asked an uncle, “Why were those tyres dumped?”

The uncle explained, “The bald tyres are not safe to be used. Hence, they must be changed regularly with new grooved tyres.”

(a) From scientific views, explain why the grooved tyres are safer to be used compared to the bald tyres (despite of the fact that both tyres are made of the same materials, have the same mass, and have the same volume of air).

(b)  While looking around the factory, Rayne was reminded of how the tyres of military tank are designed differently from the ones of racing cars. The tyres are bundled by sheets of metal.  Based on your knowledge about material, explain why metal is used.

And she is asking for more! Wow!



Hi ZY, it’s so nice to hear from you though my lessons with your school has ended quite a while now. I hope you do your best and get into P5 Math Olympiad training. Perhaps I’ll see you again or another trainer will be there.
Ms. Phang
