The polymath approach to science mastery
Many students are often already proficient in their science knowledge. However, they still can't seem to score well in their science examinations! The root problem is that students often answer a question too quickly or too casually, without analysing what the question is asking of them. Some questions require students to compare two objects, while others require students to provide a detailed explanation. By lacking a systematic approach to tackling Open-ended Questions, these students usually score well for Multiple-Choice Questions but relatively poorer for Open-ended Questions, thus not fulfilling their potential.
Our Polymath Framework ensures that each student approaches every Open-ended Question with a consistent and extensive methodology. Our worksheets are designed to allow students to recall/identify the topic, subtopic, types of questions and keywords so that they know what to write to score well. Our teachers are experienced experts in identifying missing keywords in your child's science vocabulary and designing a customised curriculum for her to reinforce these missing keywords. We have seen how this has helped many students improve not only their analysis and answering of Open-ended Questions, but also their science knowledge and retention as a whole!

In Polymath Learning Centre, we break down and analyse each topic that is featured in the PSLE examinations. We do this in order to plan a comprehensive curriculum customised for your child (yes, each child!). Our familiarity with the featured topics and MOE curriculum ensures that your child's learning at Polymath is relevant and updated!
