At The Learners’ Circle, Our Mathematics Curriculum is a carefully calibrated programme aligned with the latest MOE syllabus. Our classes are conducted by a highly experienced team of teachers to aid students to attain competence in Mathematics and develop them to their fullest potential. Our in-house curriculum team curate materials that not only teach core concepts but help students become critical thinkers, empowering them with the skills needed to solve both routine and non-routine questions so frequently seen in recent PSLE and school examination papers.
Through effective teaching, learning & formative assessments, our students will have a better understanding of Mathematical Concepts, strengthen their Logical Reasoning Skills and master Effective Problem Solving Techniques that will help them become confident learners.
We will guide our students through the Polya 4-Step Problem Solving Process to solve problems sums EFFECTIVELY and EFFICIENTLY.
- Understanding the Problem
- Devise a Plan
- Carry out the Plan
- Look Back
The Science Programme at The Learners’ Circle prepares our learners in alignment with the Singapore Science Curriculum Framework.
The Science Team develops all its learners holistically through the four dimensions of Learning, Curriculum, Assessment and Pedagogy. The Science Programme also caters to the needs of the Learner to facilitate learning, which explains why learners are at the heart of all that we do.
The specially curated teaching and learning resources at TLC will equip learners with the techniques, literacy and concepts to develop metacognition and make learning active. They will remain curious as they reflect on their learning and question the phenomenon around them, taking their learning beyond the classroom.
The CER (Claim, Evidence, Reason) Model
Sample Question 1
Study the picture below.
Is the plant a flowering plant? Explain your answer.
Evidence: The plant has fruits.
Reasoning: and only flowering plants can bear fruits.
Sample Question 2
An experiment was conducted using three different containers, A, B, and C. Each container was filled with the same volume of water and left under the hot sun at the same location. The volume of water left in each container was measured after several hours.
Which container, A, B or C, had the least water left at the end of the experiment? Explain your answer.
Claim: Container C.
Evidence: Container C had the greatest exposed surface area of water.
Reasoning: Hence, Container C had the greatest rate of evaporation of water, causing it to have the least water left at the end of the experiment.
