The subject O level additional math, 4047 offered by the Singapore – Cambridge examinations Board focuses on four main areas, Algebra, Geometry and Trigonometry, and Calculus.
This subject prepares students for A level H2 math and many other pre-university courses. Furthermore, students learn to connect ideas between Math and Science by applying the skills they learned in Additional Math.
Although many students feel that the study of Additional Math is rigorous and challenging, it is a practical subject that that help students in their tertiary education. The study of O level Additional Math opens doors to many future job opportunities. Additional Mathematics teaches students to think rationally and logically, this mindset can be transferred to other areas and help students excel in their careers.
Students will be taught the following sub-topics.
A1 equations and inequalities
A2 indices and surds
A3 Polynomials and Partial Fractions
A4 Binomial Expansions
A5 Power, Exponential, Logarithmic, and Modulus functions
G1 Trigonometric functions, identities and equations
G2 Coordinate geometry in two dimensions
G3 Proofs in plane geometry
C1 Differentiation and Integration
Our materials are based on the latest Additional Mathematics Syllabus issued by the Ministry of Education. Each set of materials comes with notes on key concepts, worked examples and practice questions. We have a huge resource of challenging question to help students deepen their learning and understand the topic better.
More often than not, students are just asked to memorise formula. Students are taught the rote learning method of learning. They go through their math education without knowing how the formula come about. At IB Super, we believe that learning should be meaningful, we show students how the formula is derived as well as applications of Math to real life.This helps mathematical ideas to stick in students mind and remembering math formula becomes a breeze. Students appreciate mathematical ideas better and overcome their dislike for the subject. They become happier and more confident in their math classes.
Many students struggle with challenging questions. They often blank out do not know what to do. Our tutor teach students problem solving strategies and techniques to help students excel in additional Math.
We use a step-by step approach to aid students in investigating problems. This approach helps students develop their thinking processes and a systematic way. Students are able to make progress in the question and not give up completely.
