March Holiday NMOS Training starts on 14 March 2016

18 Feb

olympiadThe  National Mathematical Olympiad of Singapore ( NMO) is  an annual national competition organized by the NUS High School of Mathematics and Science since 2006 . Follow this link from NUS High. The schedule is stated here for your convenience.




Date: 29th June 2016, Wednesday

Venue: Respective Primary Schools

All registered participants


Date: 26th July 2016, Tuesday

Time: 3:30 – 5 pm

Venue: NUS High School

By invitation

Working on mock papers and questions will give pupils greater exposure to the topics and questions most relevant to the competition.

14-17 March (Mon to Thu)

P4 level: $320    10:30 am to 01:00 pm

P5 level: $360    03:00 pm to 05:30 pm



For March holiday program, it will be preparatory work for the NMOS competition.

In June holiday program, the content structure is entirely mock paper training.

The purpose of our lessons is to build a firm foundation for students.

The tougher mock paper questions are actually not “difficult” as they are simpler concepts coming together.  Students who find themselves unable to cope with tougher questions actually still have issues at their foundation. Once the foundations are strong, questions they used to find “challenging” are no longer an obstacle to them 🙂

2014 June Holiday Program Highlights

2 May

PSLE A* Achievers

This June, P6 pupils will work on mock papers that comprise of both short and long questions. This is a good time for all pupils to go through a comprehensive revision before the preliminary examinations.

As usual, trainer’s explanation of difficult concepts in class is key to helping pupils clarify doubts and misconceptions so pupils are strongly encouraged to ask questions in class.

Practice is the other key ingredient for success in PSLE Math. Hence we are going to have an intensive program that has systematic coverage of PSLE math topics, emphasizing on higher order challenging problems and where pupils’ presentation of solutions will be fine-tuned.

It’s almost the last stretch, boys and girls….. let’s stay focused and push on!

High Achiever Science

Once again, Science Hub will be conducting quality and interactive Science courses during the mid-year holiday at Tampines. Our focus is on lively hands-on approaches in helping P4 to P6 pupils find out concepts in relevant topics through exploration.

Revision through simulated mock papers will be covered in the PSLE High Achiever Science course this June, focusing primarily on answering open-ended questions with correct keywords and phrasing structure.

For the P4 and P5 High Achiever Science courses, there will also be experiments to enhance their understanding and grasp concepts fully. To find out more about programs of Science Hub, please click here.

Fusion Math

The Preliminary Round of the National Mathematical Olympiad of Singapore (NMOS) is on 2nd July 2014, Wednesday. Top scorers will be invited to the Special Round on 26th July 2014, Saturday. More details can be found at the NUS High School NMOS Website.

We continue our intensive training to help P4 and P5 pupils in their preparation for the coming NMOS competition. Knowledge, understanding and skills will be built up through active teaching and learning in class.

Working on mock papers will also give pupils greater exposure to the topics and questions most relevant to the competition.

This June Holiday, we open special classes for Secondary 1 students who are keen to prepare themselves for the Singapore Mathematical Olympiad (Junior) competition, and also Secondary 2 students who wish to continue training for the SMO Senior competition at upper secondary levels.

DSA Advanced Science

This course is offered to P6 students who wish to advance their learning in the Sciences.  Click here to find out more about the MOE DSA-Sec (Direct School Admission) Exercise.


At Math Arena, the content of the DSA Advanced Science course is divided into 3 phases:

Phase 1: 2013 Year-End Holiday Program (5 lessons)

Phase 2: 2014 Semester 1 Weekly Class (11 lessons)

Phase 3: 2014 June Holiday Program (5 lessons)

June Holiday DSA Advanced Science Syllabus

1. Genetics and Heredity

2. Chemical Changes

3. Separation Techniques

4. Electricity

P5 Problem Solving Heuristics

Primary 5 is a crucial period of learning for pupils as they head towards their PSLE next year. As essential skills are taught, pupils build up a stronger foundation and their ability and confidence soar. Find out more about school syllabus topics covered for our P5 Heuristics class here.

We see this in pupils who started their P5 year with us, soaring ahead in their P6 year. We are happy for them, especially those who initially came in with low marks and lack confidence.

As always, trainers will explain strategies in class but pupils’ attentiveness and diligence in practice is still key to their achievements. Time to work hard, boys and girls!
