Dear Class 107,

Welcome to a brand new year.Before we start our lesson, I will like you to think of the following questions as an individual.

1) What are your success / joys you have experienced in the learning of Mathematics in your primary school?

2) What are your fear / difficulties you experienced in learning Mathematics?

3) What are your expectation of me as a Mathematics Teacher?

1) We get to go to the computer lab to do mathematics assignments.

ReplyDelete2) Algebra was the hardest subject in mathematics.

3) Teach us in a interesting way.

1)Math notes should be hardcopies. I would absorb 100% of it.

ReplyDelete2)My fear is that math notes is in soft copies, I would only absorb 20% of it.

3)I would expect the teacher not be be long-winded, go straight to the point.

I experienced success when I got my PSLE results.

ReplyDeleteI only fear difficult problems sums but i am willing to learn..

I expect the teacher t be helpful and guide us in our work, not spoon feed

1.The joy i experienced doing maths is the joy of seeing numbers all over the place.

ReplyDelete2.My fear is that i would not be able to memorize the formula.

3.I expect the teacher to be interesting

My successes were when i could solve hard questions.

ReplyDeleteMy difficulties i experienced were when i did not understand what the teacher was explaining.

I expect my teacher to explain all the theories throughly and show it to us at least once for us to understand.

1) It was enjoyable learning Mathematics in Primary School as my teacher used very interesting methods to teach Mathematics.

ReplyDelete2) I had difficulties learning new Mathematics Topics and was afraid to make mistakes when attempting to solve new Mathematics problems.

3) I do expect the teacher to be able to use a unique way to teach their subject rather than use a boring way and that the teacher provide us with other sources of information other than the textbook.

1.I was able to solve most of the maths questions. 2.Some questions were very confusing. 3.You should be able to teach us well with interesting (not boring) lessons.

ReplyDeleteMy success and joy in learning maths in primary school was when i got A*, and the fear in learning maths is when i do not have enough time to complete a test or exam. As for my expectations, i only expect the teacher to be the jovial kind and not the strict down-to-earth teacher.

1) I used to be one of the best students in class for Maths.

ReplyDelete2) I had a lot of Maths Homework.

3) I hope that you can make Maths lesson interesting.

1. When I have successfully familiarise myself with a concept which might be difficult or confusing is the joy that I get from Math.

ReplyDelete2. The way the questions are phrased were confusing which could affect the answer.

3. You must be able to assist us when we are experiencing difficulties in understanding.

I experienced success when i got my psle score

ReplyDeleteI cant remember.

Your lessons must be interesting.

(1) In my primary school days, math was a pretty enjoyable subject as our teacher was very good and I always did fairly well in math examinations.

ReplyDelete(2) I do not have any fear of mathematics except having vigorous amounts of homework

(3)I hope that you will teach in a interesting manner and be reasonable.

1) I feel really elated when i have solved a really tough question after thinking about it for quite a long time.

ReplyDelete2) I afraid of not being able to understand a concept or not being able to do a question

3) Your lessons must be clear.

1) My sucess/joys are that I am able to do a particularly difficult maths question without difficulty although it requires many steps.

ReplyDelete2) My fear/difficulties are that I have completely no idea how to do a particular question, however, I am keen to learn.

3) I expect you to teach me, as well as the class, patiently and not get frustrated with us even if we repeatedly ask you the same question because we do not understand the question.

1. I managed to answer tough questions on speed and I am happy because I am poor in speed.

ReplyDelete2. I have some difficulties when doing speed because I cannot memorise some formulas.

3. I expect Mr Ng to be a teacher who can answer my questions when I am in doubt.

1) What are your success / joys you have experienced in the learning of Mathematics in your primary school?

ReplyDeleteDuring Primary 6, I had a hard time learning maths, but thanks to my interesting math teacher who made the math lesson much more interesting, i managed to get an A* for math during my PSLE.

2) What are your fear / difficulties you experienced in learning Mathematics?

I always get frustrated when i cannot solve a math problem, and after looking through the workbook, i found out that Secondary 1 math was a huge leap from Primary 6.

3) What are your expectation of me as a Mathematics Teacher?

As a math teacher, i expect you to make the math lesson as interesting as possible.

1. my joy in learning maths was when i got A* for the PSLE.

ReplyDelete2. my fear in learning maths is when i do not have enough time during a test or exam.

3. my expectations is only that i want a teacher who likes to joke, not the strict, down-to-earth teacher.

1)In my primary school, I found that learning mathematics can be rather fun because when I worked hard, I discovered mathematics tests my analytical skills and allows me to expand my creativity'

ReplyDelete2)As mathematics always requires students to work questions out, which takes up time, the worst fear was the lack of time when solving problems during exams. I then found out that I had to work out problems using a faster way

3)I expect my mathematics teacher to be patient towards students and allows students to solve problems not with only one way. I also expect the teacher to let the students build up their confidence and not lower it by saying negative things about students.

I experienced success when I am complimented for questions and answers. I fear that I will not keep up with my classmates as I learn new things slowly. As a mathematics teacher, I expect that you should be patient, caring and will sacrifice time for people who could not keep up.

ReplyDelete1) It was enjoyable learning Maths in Primary School as I was good in Maths and got an A* for PSLE

ReplyDelete2) I had difficulties learning new Maths Topics and was afraid to make mistakes when attempting to solve new Mathematics problems.

3) I do expect the teacher to be able to use a unique way to teach their subject rather than use a boring way and that the teacher provide us with other sources of information other than the textbook.

1. I have always liked a challenge and I enjoy to rack my brains to solve a tricky question. If I am able to solve it, I will be elated and that would be one of my success in doing math.

ReplyDelete2. Usually, I take quite a while to grasp a concept, after much explanation. I also find math very tricky as I find it hard to understand a question and answer it with the right method.

3. As a teacher, I would expect you to be able to teach math in an interesting manner. You should be as clear as possible for us to be able to clearer.

Dionne

Well, success is maybe just getting full marks for a test, it is enough to make me happy for the whole day. As for the fears, I think it should be question on speed. I think that they are difficult to understand. Lastly, my expectations for you. I think that a mathematics teacher should be able to help his/her students in their studies, as well as some other personal problems.

So many of you did not capitalize the 'i' when using the word 'I'
