Reflecting about My Learning in Term 1...

It's been 10 weeks that we are in this Maths Classroom... we have covered 3 topics... we have tried a range of learning activities...

Let's recall and reflect ...

1. Share one or more things that you like about the Maths lessons, and you hope to continue seeing it happening in Term 2?

2. What are your challenges when learning the concepts and mastering the skills in Chapter 1 & Chapter 2?

3. Name one or more things that would help you learn better.

  2. 1. I like the patience teaching from our teacher, Miss Loh. She teaches us very well with super lots of patience as she repeats every time we didn't know how to do a certain topic or question.

    2. The new topics that we had to get 'adapted' to.

    3. Er... frankly speaking, I would prefer more homework to be given.

  3. A thing that I like is that teacher does not just regurgitate what is in the textbook but tries and teaches it to us in not so boring way.

    There were not many challenges as I did already learn most of the things taught so far. But I have problem with time when doing word problems.

    I wish we could be much more active during lessons

    I hope to see more of challenging problem solving in Term 2! Sorry for sabo-ing 1-02, but i really think we would need more critical thinking!

    2. What are your challenges when learning the concepts and mastering the skills in Chapter 1 & Chapter 2?

    I was confused with the methods to find out the HCF and LCM as their methods were almost similar.

    3. Name one or more things that would help you learn better.

    I think ace-learning has helped me alot in terms of understanding and the exposure it gives me.

    I would like to see more activities on the Maths blog as it is a good use of applied learning and it really gets the class involved. Using these activities we normally use other applications such as Keynote to learn about our topics better.

    2. What are your challenges when learning the concepts and mastering the skills in Chapter 1 & Chapter 2?

    I sometimes got confused between HCF & LCM and made it into HLM & LCF. And I normally always use the more complicated method and get that question wrong.

    3. Name one or more things that would help you learn better.

    I would like to always have some form of blog activities this way we always get some form of applied learning which is a major reason why we came to this school.

  6. There are games like the Calculator Chaos and I hop I see it more often in Term 2.

    The problem sums on integers addition, subtraction, multiplication and division are quite tough because we must be very careful in adding the integers up or multiplying the signs

    I wish there are more Performance Tasks on real world application

  7. 1.I Like learning through games, as it makes learning fun and interesting
    2.When the teacher explained the meaning of the words,it is difficult to understand.It is better if examples are shown and explanation are given,it would be much better.
    3.Lesser homework and more practices(in class)

    ~I like the activities prepared for us and I would like to see it in term 2.

    2. What are your challenges when learning the concepts and mastering the skills in Chapter 1 & Chapter 2?
    ~I need a longer time compared to the others in order to understand a chapter.

    3. Name one or more things that would help you learn better.
    ~I would like Miss Loh to "slow" down in teaching and explain clearly before she gives the homework so students like me will get a better understanding of what to do.

  9. 1. I hope to see teachers explaining the topic rather than just tell us how to do it and not explaining. I will want to understand the topic rather than just knowing the method.

    2. Sometimes I am not very sure about real numbers. After staying back to ask Ms Loh to clarify the concept of the topic, I manage to understand the topic better.

    3. I hope to see more hands-on activities as hands-on activities can help me understand the topic easier.

  11. 1. Some activities, games whereby we can learn while improving our understanding in Maths
    2. Sometimes, I do not understand or is confused when learning the concepts
    3. Activities :D

  12. 1. I like having competitions and winning prizes.

    2. I did not have any challenges as i have already revised before the school
    starts.

    3. The teacher can give more prizes as an encouragement.
    She can teach beyond the textbooks.
    She can give examples that happened in the past like interesting things.

  13. 1. I like that we can learn through online games sometimes and have videos to further let us understand about the topic that we are learning about
    2. Learning to do the division accurately and memorising all the steps to do.
    3. Create/find more interactive games so that we can play and learn at times. Just showing videos and doing some hand ons work is nice but having games to help out is EVEN better

  14. 1. I like the way we use interesting ways to learn the concepts and methods.

    2. Fractions and decimals were hard to work with.

    3. We can have more activities to help us understand the topics and concepts better.

  15. I like the patience from Ms Loh, when we are very noisy, she would wait patiently for us to settle down.
    I find it hard to concentrate in class
    I would prefer worksheets rather than the ace-learning thing

    1. Share one or more things that you like about the Maths lessons, and you hope to continue seeing it happening in Term 2? I would like more group activities.

    2. What are your challenges when learning the concepts and mastering the skills in Chapter 1 & Chapter 2?I did not understand what the braced stood for

    3. Name one or more things that would help you learn better.I think we should do more online activities.

  18. 1.I like it when the teachers give us to do worksheets where the instructions are clearly given.I also like it when we are given task to do about estimation and using the Maths Performance task.


    2.The challenges is when we are given work to do,we do not have enough knowledge and trying franticly to do it before the deadline.

    3.Through the HCF and LCM,I have been able to do my work more quicker.

    I like maths because it is challenging and hope to see more interesting and challenging maths story form questions.
    2. What are your challenges when learning the concepts and mastering the skills in Chapter 1 & Chapter 2?When learning the concepts and mastering the skills in Chapter 1 & Chapter 2,it was a little bit confusing and couldn't really understand.
    3. Name one or more things that would help you learn better.
    We could have a game for every maths topic to review everything

  20. 1.The felt that learning using Ace-Learning is very fun and easy and it is accessible anywhere around Singapore and Ms Loh is very patient when it comes to teaching us new things

    2.Some of the questions are hard to understand and the homework is more than primary school so it is hard to cope with.

    3.I feel that Ms Loh could give us lesser homework so we could have more time to revise.

  21. 1)I like how Ms Loh teaches us maths. She uses the maths blog to help us learn maths. I hope to see this in term 2.

    2)I don't really understand what the teacher is talking about sometimes.

    3)I should sleep earlier, so I can wake up feeling very fresh, hence I can eat my breakfast and listen more attentively in class.

  22. 1. The thing that I like about Mathematics is that Miss Loh have the pack of square cards(Pink-negative&White-positive)which is applied learning. That made my understanding better and everything else I do not comprehend much of other topics especially confusing how to calculate LCM and HCF so I knew I failed the Mathematics test.

    2. The challenges is that I am not clear what Miss Loh is talking about, usually do not have a grasp of it, and I should have more 1-1 conversation with her.

    3. We do not always need to just absorb all the knowledge of the textbooks or what Miss Loh says. We could organize more hands-on activities so I could understand much better(stated previously) and make mathematics more fun and interesting and encourage us more to do better.

    4. I am afraid that Miss Loh is always acting like she smiled but actually she is keeping her anger herself. Only once she scolded us because she cannot control her anger anymore.

  23. 1. Share one or more things that you like about the Maths lessons, and you hope to continue seeing it happening in Term 2?

    It is fun, interesting and not boring.

    2. What are your challenges when learning the concepts and mastering the skills in Chapter 1 & Chapter 2?

    I had to learn and remember the rules of arithmetic.
    (4 operations)

    3. Name one or more things that would help you learn better.

    More animations in the websites that we use to learn math so that it could help us understand the concepts behind the formula better.

  24. 1. Share one or more things that you like about the Maths lessons, and you hope to continue seeing it happening in Term 2?

    There are a lot things I like about the Maths Lesson.I love the part when we got some paper cards to solve positive equations ,as ,if we learn through applied learning and experiments , it would be in my heart forever.

    2. What are your challenges when learning the concepts and mastering the skills in Chapter 1 & Chapter 2?

    I had a lot of confusion and obstacles when I tried to solve the problems.I basically got confused with HCF and LCM.

    3. Name one or more things that would help you learn better.

    I would hope there would be more applied learning in maths as there would be a better understanding.

  25. Yes, I am also afraid of Miss Loh :P

  26. 1)I like the patience from the teaher,ms loh.When we do not understand something,she patiently re-teaches us until we do.

    2)Challenges i face are the multiplication and division of negative fractions as it confuses me at time.

    3)Have breakfast in the morning and drink more water so that i can be more attentive in class!

  27. 1. I like the applied learning part where we got the cards to understand the part of negative + positive, negative + negative,....

    2. Understanding the real numbers chapter

    3. More applied learning and more revision
