Connective Thinking Skills

Engaging Experiments

To illustrate certain important concepts, actions speak louder than words. It is essential for the students to establish a strong linkage between theories and practicals. This trains them on connective thinking skills - an essential thinking skill which allow them to connect various concepts and reduces complexity to simplicity. It joins together multiple concepts into one targeted purposeWhether one aims to solve the world’s greatest challenges or searching for a way to make life more convenient, the answer lies in connecting ideas that have never been pulled together before.

For example, in the topic of electricity, most of the students are having difficulties in identifying and understanding the important concept of the potential points. In JQEducation, we help the students to visualise and understand this concept through the use of Breadboard. A breadboard is a construction base for prototyping of electronics. As it allows customisation and it is reusable, it makes it easy to use for creating temporary prototypes and experimenting with circuit design. Through the construction of various different circuits, it gives the students a clear concept of potential points and a cutting edge over their peers. 

Examination Techniques

In a research conducted by UK shows that teachers are biased in marking. It is inevitable as human generally make their judgements both logically and emotionally. Due to the nature of Physics, explanation questions are mandatory  and the way a student answer are often judged by the marker. Hence, it is very important for students to present their answers in the most professional manner. JQ Education has vast experience with various schools' and GCE 'O' level marking schemes and trains her students promptly to tackle their examinations.   

Area of focus

  • Handwriting  

  • Presentation of workings

  • Answering template

  • Accuracy of answers
    (i.e. number of significant figures/decimal places)

  • Identification of strong and weak topics

  • Strategies in achieving the maximum marks in an examination
