Succeed in the Maths PSLE

Ever wondered why your child is unable to apply the Maths concepts learnt to his/her exam paper? It is because not all students are able to bridge the gap between what is taught in schools and what is tested in the exams themselves. It is often higher-order, non-routine problem sums which students have difficulty with.

At this hands-on workshop, pick up tips and tricks and gain exposure to skills and strategies which you can immediately apply to help your child solve word problems.

English Usage Tips: Punctuation

PUNCTUATION: APOSTROPHES

 

  • Apostrophes indicate possession – something belonging to something or someone. 

Incorrect: Jennifers horse is over there.

Correct: Jennifer’s horse is over there.

To indicate something belonging to one person, the apostrophe goes before the ‘s’.

 

Incorrect: The postman delivered the parcel to the Ng’s flat.

Correct: The postman delivered the parcel to the Ngs’ flat.

To indicate something belonging to more than one person, put the apostrophe after the ‘s’.

 

 

 

  • Apostrophes are never used to make a word plural, even when a word is in number form, as in a date.

Incorrect: We received a Chinese New Year card from the Lee’s.

Correct: We received a Chinese New Year card from the Lees.

Incorrect: My parents like to listen to music from the 1970’s.

Correct: My parents like to listen to music from the 1970s.

 

 

  • Apostrophes are also used to indicate a contraction.

Contractions are two words made shorter by placing an apostrophe where letters have been omitted. For example, “let’s” uses an apostrophe to indicate that the word is missing the “u” from “us”.
