Homeschool Math Challenging Puzzles

Homeschool Math Challenging Questions

Mathtuition88 will be starting a series of Homeschool Math Challenging Problems, aimed at age 8 to 10 (Grade 2 to 4).

This series is targeted at kids age 8 to 10 who are strong / gifted at mathematics and wish to further stretch their potential. It is also useful for children who may not be strong in math at the moment, but have a keen interest in math nonetheless.

In particular, it is very suitable for the following purposes:

  • Homeschooling for gifted kids
  • Preparation for GEP (Gifted Education Programme) screening and selection tests
  • Preparation for Math Olympiad
  • Puzzles for kids interested in math but find school work too easy.
  • PSLE challenging Math problem sums. The questions are also well within the PSLE Math Syllabus, and will be challenging to Primary 6 students as well.

This series of questions will follow the Singapore Math syllabus for Grade 3 students, covering the following topics:

  1. Whole Numbers
  2. Fractions
  3. Money
  4. Measurement (Length, Mass, Volume)
  5. Time
  6. Area and Perimeter (rectangle/square)

Although the syllabus above is elementary, we are choosing the toughest math questions (while still remaining in the framework of the syllabus). Hence, the title of the series is “Homeschool Math Challenging Puzzles for Grades 2-4”!

As far as possible, the questions will be categorized under: https://mathtuition88.com/category/homeschool-math-challenging-puzzles/

The Most Accomplished 10-Year-Old (Gifted pupil)

Pan Annan is probably the most accomplished 10 Year-old student in Singapore, or perhaps even in the world.

Her list of accomplishments:

  • International rhythmic gymnastics champion
  • Youngest member of the Singapore National Youth Chinese Orchestra (SNYCO), where she plays the Pipa
  • Gifted Education Programme (GEP)
  • Math Olympiad trainee
  • Raffles Girls’ Primary pupil

Any one of the above accomplishments is enough to stand out among 10 year-olds, and she has all of them! The most amazing is how she manages her time. I am familiar with Chinese Orchestra trainings, that alone is enough to account for quite a significant amount of time after school, since there is group practicing, sectional practicing, not to mention practicing alone. Possibly Chinese Orchestra alone adds up to a minimum of 5-10 hours per week.

Also, the workload from RGPS GEP is very demanding. Her schedule and timetable can only be achieved with 100% efficiency and focus. (She even does her homework in the car to maximize efficiency and save time.)

Parents may want to read my previous blog post on Book by Truly Gifted Kid (GEP Book), where a similarly prodigious child genius Moshe Kai Cavalin outlines his secret, with input from his mom on parenting. Also, as you can see, the standard for GEP students nowadays is very high, you may read Recommended Books for GEP Selection Test and How to Get Into GEP for some tips on how to do some foundational preparation for the GEP.

Sincerely all the best to Pan Annan for achieving her dreams of being a gymnastic champion.

How to help gifted children deal with hyper-sensitivity

This should be useful for parents of gifted kids.

Gifted children can be challenging and exhausting: unable to handle frustration, finding it difficult to accept boundaries, talking endlessly, negotiating the slightest rule or order … However, according to Jeanne Siaud-Facchin, a psychologist who is a specialist in gifted children (see our previous article in which she explains what makes a child gifted), creating boundaries and setting limits is a vital necessity for their emotional development, and the only way to avoid the creation of permanent and escalating conflicts. How should we respond to these tantrums due to a child’s heightened emotional state? We’ve spoken to some experienced moms who share what to do to calm and reassure our sensitive children.

Why are many gifted children challenging and exhausting?

Of course, not all gifted children are difficult; some are more docile and compliant. However, in many cases their extreme sensitivity can lead them to react to the slightest emotional change in their environment. This can result in violent and excessive emotional reactions.

Valérie, a 41-year-old mother of six children, shares her experience: “My children are all hyper-sensitive, but don’t all react in the same way. The eldest, at nine and a half (diagnosed as gifted) still has angry outbursts. If it is a reaction to something his brothers have said or done, he shouts, and if that doesn’t seem enough, he hits. If his anger is aimed at me, he yells. My second son (eight years old) yells, then runs to his room to calm down. He cusses when he doesn’t find a way to cope … My third son (aged 5) cries and needs hugs. He is the only one I manage to help when he’s having a tantrum. Personally, I’d say that these tantrums are perhaps one of the most difficult aspects of having a gifted child among so many siblings that I have to cope with on a daily basis, as there are endless opportunities to overreact.”

GEP Test Dates (August)

In August, Primary 3 pupils in Singapore schools have the opportunity to take the GEP Screening Test, comprising 2 papers: English Language and Mathematics.

Check out the Recommended Books for GEP Test here!

IQ is based on both nature (inheritance of genes), and more importantly nurture (habits, family background, books read as a child, …), hence a logical way to prepare for the GEP is to read some books relevant to the GEP test. Some preparation is always better than zero preparation, as authors of many self-help books have researched and concluded.

It would be a huge advantage for students to be familiar with basic logic quizzes that are found in IQ tests. Seeing this type of question for the first time in the GEP test would not be very conducive as it may lead to nervousness which would affect the logical thinking.

To do well in the time based GEP test, it would be a great advantage to have seen such questions before. (Found in the Recommended Books for GEP link above)
