# SEP Hols (7-11 Sep) LAST DASH Workshop

### Important Topics and Concepts

This 3-Day comprehensive math revision programme aims to revisit important topics and concepts commonly tested in the PSLE Math paper to ensure your child is sufficiently prepared for the exam.

### Heuristics and Higher Order Thinking Questions

Heuristics and non-routine questions will also be included and solved using our tested and proven S.M.A.R.T. conceptual approach to stretch your child a little and give them the unfair advantage over their peers for solving challenging questions meant to sift out the high achievers in PSLE exams.
