You’ll never begin to be good in Math at the secondary level and beyond until you have mastered THREE fundamental topics: Arithmetic of Negative Numbers, Indices and Algebra. Even students who had obtained A or A* in PSLE Math find themselves doing badly in Math at the upper secondary level if they have not perfected their skills in handling these three topics while in Sec 1 or Sec 2. This course is intended to help such students.

Level/Subject: **Secondary Arithmetic, Indices & Algebra**

Dates: Mon 16/3, Tue 17/3, and Wed 18/3 (three 3 hr sessions)

Time: 2.00 pm – 5.00 pm

Location: **Blk 644, Bukit Batok Central, #01-68. S(650644).**

Our location is just a **3-min walk** from either the** Bukit Batok MRT station** or the **Bukit Batok Bus Interchange**. Buses that stop along the roads surrounding our location are numbers 157, 178, 66, 506, 173, 174, 176, 187, 985. Buses services which terminate at Bukit Batok Bus Interchange are 61, 77, 106, 173, 177, 189, 852, 941, 945, 947.

**Who should attend:**

(1) Sec 1 and Sec 2 students who wish to learn all the Algebraic skills in advance;

(2) Sec 3 to JC2 as well as Polytechnic students who have been getting low scores for Math exams largely due to poor handling of algebraic expressions.

**Topics:**

(1) Addition, subtraction, multiplication and division of **Negative Numbers**; (2) Addition and subtraction of Algebraic expressions; (3) **Indices**; (4) Multiplication and division of Algebraic expressions; (5) **Simplifying Algebraic fractions**; (6) **Expansion** of Algebraic Expressions; (7) **Factorising** Algebraic expressions; (8) **Solving** linear and fractional Algebraic equations; (9) **Changing the subject of a formula**; (10) Solving **simultaneous linear equations**, (11) **Solving Quadratic Equations** by Factorisation,** Completing the Square**, and Quadratic Formula. (12) **Solving problems** involving quadratic equations.

Focus: **CONCEPTUAL UNDERSTANDING**

Format: Teaching + Worksheets + Discussions

Fee: **Only $240 for all 3 sessions (inclusive of materials & refreshments)**
