# What Your Child Will Learn

During this 2-day content-packed masterclass, we’ll work closely with your child to improve his/her answering techniques to tackle questions on the topic of Light.

### 🧱 Understand Key Science Concepts From This Topic

✅  Recap on the 3 important properties of Light (… we’ll also talk about shadows & how solar and lunar eclipses are formed!)

✅  Learn the ins and outs of Reflection and Refraction (… many students to get boggled by the amount of content required for this topic & we have helped to break them down into bite-sized pieces!)

✅  Discover how the characteristics of mirror images differ based on the plane, convex & concave mirrors (… we broke the differences down so your child can compare them easily!)

✅  Get access to a simple trick on writing laterally inverted words and images

✅  Understand how to establish the maximum field of vision for different types of mirrors (plus: discover the different applications of these mirrors in our daily lives to solve problems!)

✅  Learn how optical density works & how to calculate refractive index and critical angle (Although some trigonometry is required, we’ll walk your child through the Math in a step-by-step manner.)

✅  Understand how to draw an image in a refractive ray diagram (… learn how light moves through different media and creates refracted images.)

✅  Discover how converging and diverging lenses work (plus: how to construct a ray diagram and how to calculate the magnification factor.)

✅  Discover how primary and secondary colours affect how we perceive colours in objects. (Learn how to identify the colours of objects under different colours of light, and how colour filters work!)

### 🚀 Valuable Examination-centric Resources To Accelerate Understanding

Your child will NOT leave this workshop empty-handed.

Not only will our Secondary Science Specialists take your child through the step-by-step process of tackling Light questions, we’ll also provide your child with beautifully-illustrated notes, worksheets and worked examples that are designed to help students learn this Biology topic easier, better and faster.

These valuable resources will help to shorten the learning curve tremendously. You and your child can expect to save lots of valuable time and frustration trying to figure out what examination setters are looking out for.

### 💣 Avoid ‘Concept Traps’ That Cause Most Students To Lose Marks Unnecessarily

It is important to have an understanding of the common conceptual pitfalls so that your child can learn to avoid them. We also included little ‘warning notes’ to remind students of potential misconceptions in their syllabus.

Do not underestimate these tips as they will help your child improve the odds of scoring an A for his/her Science examination!

Mr. Firhad is a Ministry of Education (MOE) trained teacher with a Bachelor's Degree in Biology from the National University of Singapore (NUS). After 17 years of experience in teaching, he believes in engaging his students actively to sustain their interest in learning. By utilising a well-planned lesson, scaffolding and purpose-driven activities, he creates an environment where students can acquire knowledge and skills actively.

Drawing insights from his Post Graduate Diploma in Education (PGDE), he emphasises on the subject's real-world applications and relevance, making the concepts easier to digest. For knowledge retention, he relies on routine and structure. With these components in place, he believes that experiential learning can take shape more efficiently.

## Dr. Ryan Liu Ruoyang

As a Chemistry Ph.D. holder from the National University of Singapore (NUS), Dr. Ryan is extremely proficient in demystifying complex Secondary Science concepts for his students. His strength lies in formulating and asking thoughtful questions that help his students identify their misconceptions and inculcate the critical thinking skills required to excel in the subject. He is also highly skilled in using in-class demonstrations and discussions to bolster their conceptual comprehension and ignite a genuine curiosity for the subject.

As the valedictorian of the Faculty of Science Commencement 2023 and consecutive Dean’s List recipient during his undergraduate studies at the National University of Singapore (NUS), he leverages his wide range of technical and teaching expertise amassed over more than 11 years to impart not only important Secondary Science concepts and examination-centric strategies to his students, but also a deep passion for learning that has inspired many of his students to pursue meaningful academic growth.

## Ms. Quinn Tran

Having worked with children of various age groups over the past 5 years, Ms. Quinn has developed a great ability to connect with the young minds and bring the best out of them. As a Biomedical Science graduate from La Trobe University, she is confident in guiding her students through challenging concepts and helping them to discover the wonders of Science. She strongly believes in the importance of inculcating the joy of learning in her students. Therefore, she always strives to make her lessons exciting with lots of stories and examples to pique her students’ interests.

## Mr. Derrick Toh

With a Bachelor’s degree in Physics from the National University of Singapore (NUS), Mr. Derrick has a good mastery of Science concepts and is fully equipped to clarify common scientific misconceptions among students. Over the past 11 years, he has worked closely with primary school students with differing academic abilities.

He is well-loved among his students for his patience in guiding them through the thought processes and answering techniques required to excel in the PSLE Science examination. Ensuring that the students enjoy his lessons is his top priority. In order to do so, he constantly integrates real-life examples and stories into his lessons to pique his students’ interest in Science.
