What is the Sec 3 IP. Math Headstart about?

This course aims to provide  topics covered in the IP Mathematics syllabus. You will gain knowledge and critical practice to new topics in mathematics as well as revised the old.

This course is suitable for current Sec 2 students who are in IP schools. Students taking this class will need to be strong in their math fundamentals.

Day 1 Quadratic Theory

– factorisation (revision)

– completing the square (revision / reinforcement)

– quadratic formula (revision / reinforcement)

– graphs(revision / reinforcement)

– quadratic discriminants

– quadratic roots

– quadratic inequalitie

Day 2 Introduction Logarithms

– surds & indices (revision / reinforcement)

– rephrasing indices with logarithms

– logarithms with and without calculators

Day 3 Rules of Logarithms

– addition and subtraction rule

– power rule

– change of base

– problem solving

Day 4 Graphs of Exponentials and Logarithms

– shape of graph

– relationship between exponential and log graphs

– asymptotes and intercepts

* transformations (stretching, shifts, reflections)

IP Maths Head Start (14 yr)

Dates/Day: 19-Dec-16 to 22-Dec-16, Monday to Thursday

Time: 3:00 pm to 6:30 pm

2016 December Holiday Classes: Secondary 3 Additional Maths Headstart for 2017

13 Nov

addmathsWhat is the Sec 3 A. Math Headstart about?

This course aims to provide  topics covered in the Additional Mathematics syllabus. You will gain knowledge and critical practice to new topics in mathematics. It is important to get to a good start in A. Maths as it can be a daunting in the beginning for students starting in A Math. It is notable that the headstart includes graph sketching which is a common problem for students.

This course is suitable for current Sec 2 students who are offering Additional Mathematics as an academic subject.


What are the topics that will be covered in this course?

Day 1: Systems of Equations
Day 2: Indices and Surds
Day 3: Graph Properties and Sketching

2016 Holiday Classes: Sec 4 Pure Chemistry Headstart for 2017

11 Nov

In this class, students examine the chemical decomposition of substances by electrolysis, characteristic properties of acids, bases and salts, and also their reactions with substances, the factors affecting the rate of reaction and also the energy changes during a reaction. Students will also examine the periodic trends and group properties of metals, their properties, reactivity and uses

This course is designed to help pupils to get ready for their O Level Chemistry for next year — 2017. The teacher will explain the concepts and the students will work through comprehensive worksheets.

Course duration: 4 days (3:30 hr with 15 minutes break)

  • Acids, Bases & Salt
  • Oxidation & Reduction
  • Energy Change
  • Rate of Reaction
  • Metal
  • Electrolysis

Dates/Day: 28-Nov-16 to  01-Dec-16, Monday to Thursday

Time: 3:00 pm to 6:30 pm

Dates/Day: 05-Dec-16 to 08-Dec-16, Tuesday to Thursday

Fee: $480

2016 Holiday Classes: Sec 3 Pure Physics Headstart for 2017

10 Nov

In this section, we begin by examining kinematics, which is a study of motion without regard for the cause. After which, we study the conditions required for an object to be accelerated and introduce the concept of forces through Newton’s Laws. Subsequently, concepts of moments are introduced as consequences of a force. Finally, this section rounds up by leading the discussion from force to work and energy, and the use of the principle of conservation of energy to explain interactions between bodies.

Kinematics

  • Speed, velocity and acceleration
  • Graphical analysis of motion
  • Free-fall
  • Effect of air resistance

Dynamics

  • Balanced and unbalanced forces
  • Free-body diagram
  • Friction

Turning Effect of Forces

  • Moments
  • Centre of gravity
  • Stability

Energy, Work and Power

  • Energy conversion and conservation
  • Work
  • Power
