A Parent's Worry
Like most mothers, Mummy Jasmine was worried when she saw the drastic dip in her son’s Math results from Primary 4 to Primary 5 during the mid-year exams.
Coming from a stretched class, she was concerned with him getting a “B” grade when some of his friends were able to bridge the big “jump” in his level.
“He kept telling me that it’s very difficult, it’s very difficult. Primary 5 Math is very difficult.”-Mummy Jasmine
Being a working mum with 3 kids, Jasmine wanted to find a way to help her son improve from home instead of travelling for tuition. She was looking for something to help her son focus better and help to improve his grades.
How Practicle Helped Cayden
Cayden spends only 15 – 30 mins every day practising Math questions on Practicle.
The short sessions help with his short attention span. At the same time, his time is also spent productively as the system automatically selects questions to suit his strengths and area of needs.
Cayden bumps into familiar questions of different contexts regularly during his practice.
This resurfacing of questions is a proven & effective learning strategy that helps Cayden remember how to apply the Math concepts learnt better and increases his exposure to the type of questions asked too.
Cayden is engaged during his practices as doing Math questions feels like a game.
As a result of that, he is extremely motivated to revise Math daily and is always eager to claim the prizes and rewards that he earned through his own effort along the way.
Is Practicle Effective?
“When Cayden came home after his SA2 Math Exam and told me it was very easy, I was very scared.” – Mummy Jasmine
This was the initial reaction of Mummy Jasmine after the end of year exams.
Later did she know that she would get a huge surprise when the exam papers came back.
“I think he is more confident now. He understands that if he wants anything in life, he has to spend an equivalent amount of effort to work for it.” – Mummy Jasmine
How Practicle Helped Mummy Jasmine
Practicle fits into Cayden’s schedule seamlessly and he can learn at his own pace at the comfort of his home. Mummy Jasmine doesn’t need to worry about logistics issues.
Whenever Cayden gets stuck, he can refer to the worked solutions or view a video explanation where a teacher will walk him through the questions step by step to help him understand better.
Jasmine can now enjoy a peace of mind. She doesn’t need to spend time marking Cayden’s assessment books nor asking family and friends to help solve her solve difficult Math problem sums that she’s stuck at so that she can teach Cayden.
Our system analysed Cayden’s Math proficiency skills against the MOE curriculum and uncovered that he needed more guidance on Fractions & the Grouping Concept to deal with problem sums.
Mummy Jasmine doesn’t need to worry about what areas Cayden should focus on as it’s all done automatically.
