In this first instalment of Wallace’s corner, I tackle a question posed by one parent. It’s a seemingly easy P5/6 question on area. However, due to the many steps involved many students may get this wrong. Also it requires lateral thinking, i.e. solving problems through an indirect and creative approach, using reasoning that is not immediately[…]
The professor who came up with the question on Cheryl’s birthday wants us to guess her age now. ****SPOILER ALERT**** If you don’t want to spend your weekend wrecking brains our the brat Cheryl’s age, our Maths expert Wallace has the solution here. Enjoy! Step 1: The product of all our ages is 144 A,[…]

Was recording a Channel U show recently where I was giving my opinions on education. The host asked what I would have done if a parent came for a couple of weeks, learnt my pedagogy and quit the class. Ideally, I should have answered that our way of teaching isn’t that easily replicated. (If it[…]
Science tip: “The weight of an object is also its mass.” This is really awkward to explain because we use kg to measure both weight and mass. -Weight is the pull of the Earth’s gravity on mass and is dependent on the gravity experienced (so an object will have a different weight on the moon).[…]
