Secondary 3 & 4 Mathematics
Explore the infinite potential of your child through our excellent Upper Secondary Mathematics programme.
Prepare your child for more complex Mathematics that are essential to our rapidly developing world.
Our Upper Secondary programme will help your child sharpen and hone their Mathematics skills, prepare them for the intense challenges at the 'O' levels or final year IP and guide them on the path to achieving distinctions in Mathematics.
We offer programmes for IP, IB, Olevel and Nlevel syllabus. The topics will vary according to your child's school syllabus. For Integrated Program (IP) students, the content coverage will be similar to Olevel track students. Although they may be introduced to some Alevel syllabus topics in advance, do not fret as these topics will also be covered in our course.
Furthermore, our Secondary 4 curriculum includes crucial revision for all Secondary 3 topics to ensure students retain the knowledge and skills needed for the ‘O’ level or final year IP examinations.

Testimonials
Although elementary mathematics was still my best subject, it was like hell for me learning Additional Mathematics, constantly being behind everyone else and understanding concepts after we have already gone on to the subsequent new ones. As expected, I failed my Additional Mathematics for MidYear Examinations. I was downhearted. I had never felt so demoralised and discouraged for any subject before. Hence, this led to my efforts in Additional Mathematics being halfhearted and my confidence in the subject to drop.
I started putting in effort in Additional Mathematics, but it was not enough. When my EndofYear examination results were released, I felt utterly disappointed and astonished to see that I had failed once again. I told myself that this could not continue any longer, hence I sought for a tuition teacher for Additional Mathematics, and got to know Ms Chua from a friend.
After going through Ms Chua’s lessons, I felt that the extra practice done really helped me to get the hang of new concepts. As such, I went into Secondary 4 feeling prepared for Additional Mathematics. I started to find doing AMath questions fun as I could understand what I was doing for once, hence doing more practice during my free time. This helped me to improve drastically and I had achieved A1 for MidYear Examinations. Receiving my results, I was overjoyed and felt the tears forming in my eyes. I could finally say I have a chance in scoring well for my Amath during OLevels!
In the end, I received A1 for my Olevels!

One of the challenges I faced when doing Math is not used to new information, thus it is hard to accept the info as it is (e.g. log, binomial), to me they seem so foreign and therefore I feel uncomfortable when learning them, I got help from Miss Chua and her explanations made me understand the topics that I was weak in better.
When I was unable to solve certain problems, I often feel frustrated and irritated, especially after many failed attempts. However after attending Miss Chua’s lesson and when I could solve the questions given to me, I feel a great sense of accomplishment and i become more confident.
My advice to students facing difficulties in Math is one should never give up and have the will to persist. Miss Chua is encouraging and I am grateful for that as it helped me to carry on when I faced difficulties.

"I was not doing well for my Math from Sec 1 to 3. I had quite a few math tuition before I joined Math Note Learning Centre. It didn't work out very well and I kept quitting my tuition because I really couldn't understand. When I received my test result in Sec 4 Term 1, I was very depressed and I thought I needed to do something.
I joined Math Note at the beginning of Term 2 and my results started to improve gradually. I got a B4 for my Midyear Examination and and A2 for my prelims. I couldn't believe myself that time. At the same time, I was very happy and my confidence in Math increased.
I got an A1 for my actual Olevels! Thank you Miss Chua for your help and guidance!
