Science Edventure focuses on building up a strong foundation in science for students through our specially prepared detailed notes and challenging worksheets. This ensures that students get a thorough understanding of science concepts and build up their process skills which are tested extensively in the exams. Our unique answering technique has helped GEP and mainstream students improve the way they answer open-ended questions. This has made a great difference to our students, helping them to achieve excellent results.
Many students with a good grasp of concepts tend to do well for the multiple-choice section but may only get mediocre results for their open-ended section, even with tons of exam papers to practice on. Without identifying the root cause of this problem, some may get disheartened if they are unable to see a breakthrough in their results despite trying very hard.
At Science Edventure, students are taught how to refine their answers using the RECAP ® answering technique, a method that has helped more than a thousand students improve the way they answer open-ended questions.
A student conducted an experiment on 2 beakers made of materials A and B. He placed an equal amount of water in each beaker and heated them using similar flames.
The graph below shows his results.
Which material would be more suitable to be used as a bowl to cool down some hot soup quickly? [2 marks]
Material A. It is a good conductor of heat so it can cool down the hot soup quickly.
Students are typically given only ½ to 1 mark out of 2 for such answers during school exams. Using the RECAP® method, students are taught how to answer such questions specifically by applying relevant science concepts, using scientific vocabulary (keywords) and analysing information from data (graphs) in order to obtain full marks.
We help to build a strong foundation of scientific concepts through:
Detailed explanations by the teacher
Extra enrichment materials to extend students’ scope of knowledge
Correction of common misconceptions
Our worksheets incorporate:
Higher Order Thinking Skills (HOTS) to stretch students’ minds
Exam-oriented questions to prepare students well for major exams
Application-of-concepts questions that are typically asked in national exams
Data-based questions are frequently tested in the exams. Our materials are designed to help students:
Improve graph interpretation skills
Analyse trends and data in tables and graphs
Derive a pattern or relationship between variables
Process skills that are a requirement in the MOE syllabus are extensively incorporated in our teaching materials as well as in experiments to prepare students for the exams.
