This equation should be taught in all **A-Math** and **E-math** classes! (But never taught in school)

From a strictly mathematical viewpoint it goes like this:

What Makes 100%?

What does it mean to give MORE than 100%?

Ever wonder about those people who say they are giving more than 100%?

We have all been to those meetings where someone wants you to give over 100%.

How about achieving 103%? What makes up 100% ! in life?

Here's a little mathematical formula that might help you answer these questions:

If:

A B C D E F G H I J K L M N O P Q R S T U V W X Y Z is represented as:

1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 14 15 16 17 18 19 20 21 22 23 24 25 26.

Then:

H-A-R-D-W-O-R-K

8+1+18+4+23+15+18+11 = 98% !

and

K-N-O-W-L-E-D-G-E

11+14+15+23+12+5+4+7+5 = 96%

But,

A-T-T-I-T-U-D-E

1+20+20+9+20+21+4+5 = 100%

So, one can conclude with mathematical certainty that While Hard work and Knowledge will get you close, and **Attitude will get you there**.

"Tell me and I forget. Show me and I remember. Involve me and I understand" - Chinese Proverb

The secret in the mastery of ANY subject is for Understand + Involve.

It is called experiential learning :-)

When I first chanced upon it, I was absolutely blown away!

When I used it, I was totally amazed!

MindMapping has been a tool which I used it often and encourage students and everyone else to use it for getting ideas, organizing thoughts, planning... basically everything. I read quite a number of books on mindmapping published by renowned authors like Tony Buzan and a list of other in this field.

One of the stopping factors which used to stop me from creating my mindmaps was that I cannot draw. Students who have seen my "drawing" know that I am best at drawing lines and curves. My drawing subjects usually involved less than 5 lines/curves. LOL. I know.

When I saw this online mindmap, it is totally a gift from universal for me. I strongly everyone is used it. There's a free trial for 30 days for you to evaluate if this is the tool for you.

By the way, I do not recommend anything unless I have personally used and tested it to be effective.

I was looking at some of the ways readers found this website and one of the search terms was f*ree gce o level math notes and exam questions.

Well, personally during my school life, I was "spoonfed" with lots of notes! Gosh, I wonder how many trees we have to sacrifice for this. Of all those notes, the irony is that I realize those which I have added on my "**personal touch**" in terms of my own sidenotes, post-it-notes, tea-stains and perhaps sometimes, the faint residue of saliva mark LOL....these are the notes which have proven to be very effective in helping me to learn well and score in exams.

Now, my point is that ALL students should have your own set of notes. Something that is unique to yourself only and not just notes you get from your teachers, tutors, guidebooks etc... I am not saying that these notes are not good, in fact many have excellent content and structure but as each of us is unique in your own learning styles and patterns. I strongly encourage and urge you to **make your own PowerNotes**.

Making notes is really simple. For me in the subject of Maths, I use lots of **diagrams** and **short abbreviations** to help me to understand the abstracts. Here are **6 Simple Tips** for you to make **Effective PowerNotes** :

**Use Colors**, 3 colors are good. Too many colors are distracting.- Write in
**point forms**to allow easy understanding. - Keep it to a
**A4 page**for each topic **Write it out yourself**.**Continously update**with new realization :)**Use**it for revision of tests & exams!!!

** Enjoy your PowerNotes!**

First of all, I have to apologised to all my dear readers of my recent MIA (Missing In Action) on this blog.

For those students in Singapore, I hope most of you have enjoyed your 1 week break,re-charge & ready for Term 2! It's going to be a short term with Mid Year Exams upcoming. Haha... I know I know it's mean to remind you all of the exams when the holidays aren't even over yet.

I was away from blogging on more **Math Tips **as I am focusing on my energy with a few students on subdue-ing the Top Rated Killer **A-Math Topics : Logarithms & Trigonometry!** It was really intensive for the 3 days but everything was worthwhile.

I learnt lots! Yes I learnt as well. I learn more about how students approach the topics, their challenges, their life! Oh yeah, I also learnt that my students like to play Dai-Di ( A poker card game) in school! [Read more...] about Yeah! We Subdued The A-Math Killer Topics!
