I am bringing forward my plan to return to teaching after 3 years of break.

This Friday, I'll conducting a 2 hours revision class on O Level Additional Maths.

It is an online live! lesson for Sec 4 O Level and IP. I also welcome Sec 3 to join us. As this is a revision class, the teaching pace will be faster.

- How to score in Binomial question simply by
**using the given formula**in the formula sheet! No memorising at all! **5 main types of questions**and their respective strategies to reduce careless mistakes and get you the correct answers fast.- The
**very important topic linked**to binomial expansion and the most common laws repeatedly use in almost every question. - Bonus: How to answer
**a real life binomial expansion application question on basketball games**by focusing on the details instead of being stunned like the rest of your classmates.

Many of you might know me as the 10 Year Series Book Author for O Level A & E-Maths who have transformed hundreds and hundreds of students to achieve **at least 4 grades jump** in their exams.

I had been taking the O Level E-Maths and A-Maths exams with my students as a private candidate year after year. This got Straits Times curious and I was interviewed in "**Math tutor sits exams to understand students better**".

Time: 10am – 12pm

Fees:

For: 2020 Sec 3 & 4 O Level and IP

Materials will be emailed by Thursday.

It is something we have learnt since lower secondary.

In 2019, GCE O Level Additional Maths Paper 2 Q10 tested candidates on their basic understanding of roots.

11 marks! Wow!

If you have been simply surface learning, you won't get past part (i) of the question.

See the video to see how I approach this question: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CPtbpO4At9w

]]>- Quadratic equations & Inequalities (include solving simultaneous equations, sum & product of roots)
- Indices & surds
- Polynomials & partial fractions (factor - remainder theorem, solving cubic equations)
- Binomial expansions
- Power, exponential, logarithmic & modulus functions
- Trigonometric functions, identities & equations
- Coordinate geometry in two dimensions (include circle, straight line graphs, parabolas graphs)
~~Proofs in plane geometry~~(CLT)- Differentiation & integration

This first one is on linear law.

Basic concepts that you must know are:

- Equation of a line
- Understanding of coordinate system

In this video, I share with you a strategy I teach my student to make linear law easier to understand and reduce careless mistakes to a minimum. I called it "**Capital Letter**". I use capital letters to represent the *complicated *horizontal and vertical axes. Even my equation of line is in capital letters too.

Look at my video to understand my thinking process and apply it to yours when it's your turn to solve a linear law question.

This question is interesting as we do not have to draw the graph which is commonly asked in the past.

This question will cause your downfall if you are not **absolutely **clear on the concepts of linear law.

]]>A floor 6.8m width and 11.05m length is to be paved with equal square tiles. Find the number of largest dimension square tiles that exactly fit the floor?

**Step 1:** I converted the metres into centimetres by multiplying with 100 (1m = 100cm) so that I can work with whole numbers instead of decimals.

6.8m = 680cm

11.05m = 1105cm

**Step 2:** I express each dimension in index notation by prime factorisation method.

**Step 3: **I find the HCF of these two numbers

HCF

This means the largest dimension of square tile will be 0.85m by 0.85m

Number of largest dimension square tiles used

Question of similar nature was asked in the recent year GCE O-Level examination in Paper 1 and many students did not know how to approach the question. I hope you find the explanation clear. It is always recommended to sketch a simple diagram to get your thinking started.
