# Programme Overview

## A

### MathSci Synergistic Programme

Traditionally, Science and Mathematics have always been taught separately to allow more focused learning in each subject.Â However, it was often noticed that students struggled in the Sciences not because of the lack of understanding of the Science concepts, but rather due to the lack of understanding of the underlying Mathematics used to explain the theory. This not only caused these students to lose interest in Science but also caused them to lose the interest to work with Mathematics, which soon would then become meaningless.

The MathSci Synergistic Programme (MSP) jointly founded by Mr Leon and Mr Haz is the solution to this problem. Traditional tuition classes only address each subject individually. Often, the Science teacher himself/herself might not necessarily understand how to explain the Mathematics behind the Sciences. It is similar vice versa. As such, it becomes difficult for students to learn.Â

At MathSci Synergy, we deliver lessons that help individuals to overcome the challenges in Mathematics prior to reviewing the Science content. Ultimately, they grow into confident and successful learners of both subjects.

- Learn key Mathematics concepts that enhance the understanding of the Sciences
- Focus 70% of the time learning insightful content, not 100% of the time on only practices
- Flexible option to do practices on separate booster sessions (not compulsory)
- Achieve better results by learning algebraic manipulation and data/trend analysis to support explanation-type questions in the Sciences

## MSSR (Math.Science.Synergise.Review)

#### Introduction to relevant Mathematics Concept

MathSci Synergist would go through the Mathematics concept required for the dayâ€™s learning. This would involve some basic practices which would typically take about 45mins.

#### Introduction to Scientific Concept

The planned topic for the Science lesson would be discussed. This is the part to introduce the Scientific concept for the day. This is approximately 30mins.

10-15mins consolidation period.

## Programme Overview

#### Synergy Session

This is the core section of the programme.Â The Synergist will expose the students to various question types relevant to the concepts taught in the 1st 60-90mins of the session. This will last about 45mins.

#### Recap and Review

The Synergist would wrap up the dayâ€™s learning and review any concept gap that needs to be addressed.

### Math Specialist Programme / Science Specialist Programme

Students can also choose to join our Specialist Programme to dive even deeper into the Mathematics and/or Science subjects separately.

The subject Specialist Programme focuses on students learning the chosen subject from the basic to the advanced levels as prescribed by the latest MOE syllabus. This is accomplished through the effective combination of teachings and practices derived from the founder specialistsâ€™ combined experience of more than 25 years. The key benefit of this programme is that students focus more time learning the chosen subject(s) at greater depth each.

The subject Specialist Programme is suitable for:

- Students who are weaker in each individual subject and require more time for learning.
- Students who want in-depth practices (basic to intermediate to advance levels).
- Students who have good knowledge of the subject and want to excel further in it.

- Gain greater competence and confidence in the individual subject matter before moving onto another subject.
- Personalised guidance from our MathSci Educators.
- Complementary 1 hour 1-1 consultation each month.

#### Introduction to topic of the day

MathSci Educator/Synergist would introduce the topic of the day with some real-life scenarios relevant to the content. (30mins)

#### Delivery of essential skillset

MathSci Educator/Synergist would introduce formula/concept through the powerpoint slides in bite sizes. (45mins)

## Programme overview

#### Reinforcing Session

The content taught would be reinforce with practices ranging from basic to advance where students can learn at their own pace. The practice session is guided by the MathSci Educator/Synergist.

#### Recap and Review

The MathSci Educator/Synergist would wrap up the dayâ€™s learning and review and concept gap that is needed to be addressed.
