Parent Workshop – Heuristics in Mathematics
This workshop is open to Primary 3, 4 and 5 parents only.
Tackling Mathematics at the upper primary levels can be challenging.
On top of learning new topics, your child is also expected to grasp a whole new range of different problem-solving methods. As such, many parents like yourself may find it challenging to coach your upper primary child in Math effectively at home.
Doing well in upper primary Math begins with sharpening your child’s problem-solving and application skills — this is where heuristics come in.
What Are Heuristics?
Heuristics are problem-solving methods that play a very important role in upper primary Math.
Join us this August as Ms Lee Ying, Subject Head of Math at TLL Marine Parade Central, conducts a two-session Math Workshop to help parents guide their children in tackling upper primary Math.
During this workshop, you will learn how to identify concepts in common word problems and apply the most efficient heuristic methods to solve Math problems.
• Session 1: Identifying Heuristics (2 hrs)
Friday, 17 August, 7.30pm – 9.30pm
Identifying the types of heuristics — this session will allow parents to learn the different types of heuristics and their identifiers.
• Session 2: Managing Common Word Problems (2 hrs)
Sunday, 19 August, 2pm – 4pm
This session is a continuation from Session 1 — we will be sharing word problems that students commonly find challenging.
After Session 2, members of our Academic Team and our enrolment consultants will be available to answer any questions you may have about our Math curriculum or other programmes.
Materials will be provided for both workshop sessions.
