Something interesting - Using Chinese to teach Mathematics
I had the chance to go to a bookshop at JB during my one day trip there. I went to browse through some of the assessment books there and found out that some Mathematics books are in Chinese, that is something interesting to me because in Singapore, we do not teach Mathematics in Chinese. As I go through the books, I find that it is rather difficult to understand the Mathematics terms in Chinese, so that is considered a new discovery by me. Indeed different countries will have different edcational systems, so do you like the educational sytem in your country, I find that our educational system is quite ok because we have the bilingual system here (English and Mother Tongue) except sometimes we can emphasize more on building up desirable characteristics such as confidence, self-independence, self-motivation and so on, rather than emphasize too much on the academics.
