The Train The Trainer Programme offers Math teachers and Math tutors the opportunity to level up their Math knowledge and stay relevant to the development of Math standard. Trainees attend weekly sessions and learn essential concepts, strategies and competition techniques. More importantly, our Programme uses strong and proven Critical Thinking Training techniques developed by Mr Terry Chew to help Trainees develop the Critical Thinking Skills.
The Train The Trainer curriculum is designed to help teachers to expand their Math knowledge as well as showing them how students are involved in developing mathematical ideas. A typical math may normally only see or understand one way to approach a problem but a trained Math Olympiad teacher understands three to four reasons why and makes connections between different Math topics to solve complicated problem sums - Critical Thinking Skills.
Math Olympiad can help students to analyse tasks and questions, think about complex problems in a deeper and more systematic way, and learn how to link mathematics to most everyday events. Math Olympiad emphasizes on moving away from those outdated methods of teaching through repetitive drill and practice, mechanical memorisation, and regurgitation of information. Naturally, students who have a higher aptitude of Math may opt for competing in prestigious international Math Olympiad Competition to test creative mathematical thinking and flexible understanding of core mathematical concepts. However, Math Olympiad training doesn't mean stressful competition. Math Olympiad training programmes can be simply a fun and challenging way to introduce children to the delights of Math by stretching their understanding the same way Math Olympiad competition does. Many students benefit from Math Olympiad training which has proven to lay a strong foundation both for their academic success in school.
Come and be part of the TCA vibrant Math Olympiad - Train The Trainer programme. Our Math Olympiad programme is structured with Singapore MOE's 21st Century Core Competencies; placing a strong emphasis on Critical Thinking Skills and making connections between different Math topics to solve complicated problem sums.
