SGD 10.90

In the case studies section of the GCE A-level Economics examination today, the challenge is how they demand a variety of skills from the students, and within a short period of time. Students need to process a whole mass of information from the case studies, read and comprehend the questions, and respond to them accurately and adequately. Students thus have to develop all these skills, and be comfortable with deploying them during a timed trial – the examination. This guide is thus designed to help students develop the necessary skills and practise them. Knowing what to do is most important, so that students do not mindlessly practise, which may not only be unhelpful but counter-productive. Based on his many years of experience teaching students the subject, the author has designed this book to be easy to follow and to facilitate understanding of the case studies. A list of key words is also to help students analyse questions in case studies.

ISBN:

Price:
SGD 15.90

In recent GCE A-Level Economics examinations, there has been less emphasis ontesting lower-order thinking skills of knowledge and comprehension. In order to do well in examinations now, students have to display higher-order thinking skills, such as application, analysis, synthesis and evaluation. Unknown to many, regurgitation of lecture notes will hamper a student’s ability to achieve high marks. In order to score a distinction in the Economics examination, it is important to write evaluative comments in your essays. However, many students find it challenging to evaluate alternative theoretical explanations and perspectives of economic problems, issues and policy decisions. The Evaluation Points series will help students generate possible evaluation points for the theoretical content that they have learnt in class, thereby helping them to achieve their desired distinction grade in the A-Level Economics examination. This Volume 2 serves to provide even more thought-provoking and useful evaluations for students.

Mastering H2 Mathematics with Worked Solutions 2nd Edition

ISBN:
9789811116902


Price:
SGD 16.90

This book is specially designed for students who want to test their mathematical skills at a higher level. Though the Advanced Questions here are of similar or slightly higher standard than those in the A-Level examinations, students should be able to solve them. The Challenging Questions are designed to push the student’s limits, though the skills needed to solve them are within the student’s scope of knowledge. Detailed worked solutions enable students to learn from their mistakes and at the same time coach them on certain concepts.

The change in the H2 Mathematics syllabus for 2017 has necessitated this Second Edition. In the new 9758 H2 mathematics syllabus, mathematical induction, De Moivre’s Theorem, loci in complex numbers, multiple planes in vectors, recurrence relations, Poisson distribution and approximations in statistics have been dropped. In their place are at least two questions in each paper on applications of mathematics in real-world contexts. Each question will carry at least 12 marks with two such questions in Pure Mathematics and two in Statistics, making a total of 48 marks.

The application of mathematics in real-world contexts is not new. It is now more emphasized. Such questions can be found in this book in topics like AP/GP, applications of differentiation and differential equations. Too often, students do not see and appreciate the real-life applications of the mathematics that they learn in school. This change in the syllabus is a step forward to enhance students’ appreciation of the subject. While the mathematics that students learn at A-level is still considered basic for many real-life applications, it is a start. Questions in this book include solving real-world financial problems using AP/GP and carbon dating using differential equations. I hope that through these exposures, students can have a better appreciation of the mathematics that they are learning.
