PSLEMath Online serves as a supplement to school work by allowing students to practise three problem sums a day to improve their heuristic problem solving skills. Topics and questions are arranged by types, enabling the students to adopt a gradual yet comprehensive approach to mastering heuristic problem solving skills.
By presenting in steps instead of providing the entire solution, the student has an opportunity to think and solve the question with a slight prompt. For example, if a solution consists of 8 steps, the student will be given a hint of one of the eight steps only if a hint is requested. Subsequent hints will not be provided until the student clicks on the hint button again. This way of participative learning allows the student to learn better as it stimulates thinking skills and encourages perseverance.
Students will receive a higher score for the question if lesser hints are used. They will be encouraged to attempt the questions on their own in order to earn a higher score and redeem a prize at the end of the year.
The system tracks the time the student logged into the system, the time taken to answer each question, and the number of hints requested. These data allow parents to monitor the student’s effort and progress made.
Students can redo any questions completed. Parents and tutors can also assign students to retry previous questions identified in the weekly progress report.
Students will not be able to attempt questions ahead of time as it is recommended for them to adopt a gradual approach in mastering heuristic problem solving skills.
