What has changed?
Our previous website for video solutions, www.ilearnbywatching.com was not as navigation friendly for mobile devices compared to this site. In addition this site will host not just primary school video solutions. It will host physics, additional math and in planning chemistry and more.
* This is our 3rd major change to improve the website.
Why did we create video solutions?
The main reason is to help our students do better and to have more tools to help themselves.So for primary 5 and 6 math students, the video solutions comes inclusive when they sign up as our students. We plan to do the same for our additional math, physics students. And when other video solutions are ready we will do the same for our other subjects and make it available to our students without additional cost.
We have been encouraged by the fact that a number of students and even parents have been making good use of the system. The results show based on the feedback that we have.
Because of that, it spurs us to continue with the portal and to make improvements.
By the way, we are not an IT company but educators so we tend to make major changes and additions at the end of the year when lessons have ended because we have more time.
What is the PSLE MATH ACADEMY BUNDLE ?
PSLE MATH ACADEMY BUNDLE is the best value as you get all primary school courses in this bundle. Compare this with subscribing all the individual courses, you will pay $562 versus $180 for 6 months.

What are key benefits of using this site?
For non-matharena students, they will get to watch solutions and listen to their explanations. In school because the teacher may go over quickly in their teaching of certain topics or the student may not be always paying attention, you can get valuable help here. By re-watching many different solutions, the student can build up their understanding.
For parents, you can use this to learn and help your child. We know some parents have done so.
For matharena students, there are more practice papers, and this site complements their ongoing lessons by helping them review or advance further in their work. We also add non routine / olympiad questions which might not be always covered in class.
What are some differences from this site compared to others?
Firstly when working with PSLE math, we don’t do bar models for our solutions. Bar models are good for understanding but it gets unwieldy for manuplations. Many math arena students freed from using one size fit all bar models found themselves learning faster and produce solutions quicker and accurately. Some found it liberating when once they thought they were weak in maths because they felt bounded by it while there are other better and faster techniques.
Second, we don’t have endless lecture type videos or notes explaining the basics. We assume the students have such knowledge. Students can always start with the simpler questions. For example a P5 student may watch and learn from P4 videos. They do it in their own time and privacy. Videos are short and crisp and to the point, if not most of us will lose our attention.
What we hear from parents and students using our video solutions?
"I especially like this website. Previously I was using another website but this gives me useful solutions." Shruti, student.
"Now I understand what my children are doing and I can learn from it too" Janice, parent.
"We challenge each other," Parent. ie. both parent and child doing the questions.
We have observed students who were consistently loggin in and using the site that were not as strong as their peers in the class becoming stronger and topping their school exams.
Ultimately, it is the child's motivation and also a parent can give a big boost in working with the child.
Above all, don't overdo it. Work at the pace you are comfortable, don't kill the child's interest in math, this is meant to be useful, saving time and possibly cost. Not something that becomes a chore and something dreaded.
What is the best way to quickly boost the student’s ability?
It is about productivity. Because the student has more than one subject, being able to do more with less time is important. If you are not a Math Arena student, combine watching videos with coaching lessons. Also we will be providing priority in answering the student’s math questions when he/she is our subscriber. So you need not be at our centre to have your questions answered.
What is a flipped learning environment ?
Math Arena believes in the flipped classroom environment, that is you can do your learning at home. At your own pace and schedule by learning through our online videos and with our worksheet questions. You can then additionally book coaching lessons with us. Using our videos plus our creative math coaches may provide your child a more custom approach and accommodate his busy schedule, thus a flipped environment for learning.
Which browsers are best ?
Most browsers should work. However Microsoft explorer edge might have some issues. The most common browsers like Microsoft internet explorer, chrome browser will work well. Write to us firstname.lastname@example.org if you face technical problems.
Why attend Math Arena classes?
Essentially it is a great dynamic environment through teacher interaction and classroom dynamics. Seeing highly motivated individuals in the class spurs one another. Attending our classes provide a disciplined approach in an enriching environment to learn. Class dynamics and rewards (Our Star System) will help in the motivation.
