This is a discussion on P6 Maths Question within the Primary School Registration and Academic forum, part of the Singapore Kiasu Parents Forum category; Originally Posted by yumiao Those who asking questions, are you the parents? I was showing this thread to my colleague ...
When I teach my students it's very systemic, covering the different types of questions. Especially for those who follow me up from Lower Primary, by P5 they can tackle very challenging questions on their own already. The parent class has a totally different set of materials.
I'm currently teaching from my home. My previous house was a shop house and our centre was just downstairs. Decided not to continue as it's quite far from where we stay now. Am looking around Punggol area for good location but decided to wait till the shopping centre is up
I just finished 1 parent course during June holidays at my place. But my house was 'bursting' because so many more parents came than I expected.

sounds good, actually right now my centre is at yishun. and i will open my chinese tuition centre near punngol MRT in a few days time. maybe one day i can learn from you about experience in giving tuition around punggol. cheers
Angelmum, that's the same complaint those parents had! They were telling me that every week got 1-2 tough questions that they do not know!
omg, i think i used to do those sums when i was in pri sch also.
now you ask me to solve, im so lazy to use my brain!

My donkey yrs P6 Maths and Science were chicken feet, easier than P2 std these days.
I'll post the answer when I have time. But I remember it's something to do with ratio
haha, let me 班门弄斧。remember the way to get area is 1/2(base)x(height)
compare these two triangles,
1. DF is base of DEF, AD is base of ABD. Therefore, base(ABD) is 4 times of base(DEF).
2. From the base , i hope you still remember how to draw the height, bcoz BE is 3 times of ED, the height(ABD) is actually 4 times of height(DEF), (bcoz BD is 4 times of ED).
3. so area(ABD) is 4x4 times of area (DEF) , which is 16 times.
4. area (ABD) is 16x2=32
I love maths. but bcoz my english is not good, they dont't allow me to teach EMS (english maths and science).
sorry to trouble you guys, how to change the personal profile? I m not worthy lady, i m a man. . In another thread, ppl called me mummy yumiao.
Hi tenor, you are right, it is not right angle, however, the ratio of the height equals the ratio of the edge, when their base is sharing the same line. if i can got suitable software, i will draw for you.
But sure, I will be glad to learn new things.
On hindsight, if that's the case,
this should not be a primary school question.
email@example.com or post it. TIA
Jack bought some pens and erasers for a total of $100.10. He spent $9.10 more on the pens than erasers. Each pen costs $3.70 more than each eraser. Jack bought 6 times more erasers than pens. How much does a pen cost?
The key phrase here is 6 TIMES MORE. Which means that if there is 1 unit for pen, there will 6 times more units for erasers, which means (6 x 1) + 1 = 7 units for erasers.
IF the question is 6 times as many, then the ratio should be 1:6.
P/S: Are you really a school teacher like you told me in chat?
