Know the secrets of Singapore Math

11:06 PM

Of all the jobs in the world, being a mother is one of the most challenging. Just imagine, having to raise a child, take care of a husband, and manage a household every single day! Not to mention that we also have to supervise our kids' schooling. Moms of today are a wee bit luckier since there are learning centers, like the Galileo Enrichment Learning Program, where they can bring their kids after school for supplemental learning.

Honestly, my waterloo is Math. Being a teacher/tutor myself, I admit that I'm not that confident with my Math skills so I only tutor grade school Math and let my siblings (my co-tutors) teach the older kids. My boy is still in 4th grade so I can still tutor him in his Math homeworks. Thinking that it'll only be three years till he's in high school gives me the creeps! Uh-oh, I think there's no escaping Algebra and Geometry this time!

On February 12, 2011, from 10AM to 12NN, Galileo Enrichment Learning Program will hold its second round of Unlocking the Secrets to Singapore Math which I am thinking of attending. No less than Mathematician, Dr. Queena Lee-Chua and her son Scott will facilitate the event which will be held at the Bestsellers, 4th Level, Robinson's Galleria. Mother and son tandem will showcase the Model Approach in solving Math problems which makes Math problems more understandable. Instead of just focusing on the numbers, students are taught to visualize the problem by translating it into models such as boxes and brackets.

The workshop is open to teachers, parents, and students in the 2nd to 4th grades. Should you also be interested in attending, you can call the Galileo Head Office at 898-1234 or email
