i dont expect much but i want my teacher to help me improve and my friends support me when i take part in something

ReplyDeleteIt would be challenging yet exciting learning new topics.My expectations of the teacher is just to be understanding when someone lags behind in work or does not understand a concept. For my classmates and myself, i would expect them to be hardworking and proactive and pay attention in class.

ReplyDeleteChengNgee

I hope that the teacher can do more experiments to investigate about maths problems. My friends can explain maths problems to me when I do not understand. I wish that I can at least get a B3 this year.

ReplyDeleteI hope that the teacher explains topics clearly instead of just continuing with the lesson when a student says that he/she does not understand, which may further confuse the students.

ReplyDeleteI expect my teacher to be happy when she is teaching us, only then the lesson would be pleasant and fun. I expect my classmates to be cooperative and not be a nuisance in class.

ReplyDeleteI expect my classmates and my teacher to help me whenever I need help. I think my maths still needs improvement even though my teacher in Primary School comments that my maths is quite well. And I also hope that my teacher will not go through the lesson too fast. And last but not least, i hope we don't get too much homework.

ReplyDeleteI expect the Maths class to be quite fun and it lets everyone to take part and not leave anyone out. I hope Miss Loh to help me get A1 for my maths for the year end exams. I do not expect anything from my friends.

ReplyDeleteI expect myself to enjoy maths lessons as maths is my favourite subject.

ReplyDeleteI expect my classmates to be friendly and helpful so any person who has difficulty can get help from others.

I expect Miss Loh to be helpful and make the lesson exciting so students can learn maths more easily.

I want to get better in algebra with help from my classmates. I wish Ms Loh could give us a longer deadline as most of the time there is a lot of homework to complete. Thank You.

ReplyDeletei expect that we will learn a new thing everyday and

ReplyDeleteeveyone will be supportive.

I would like my classmates to help and educate me when i'm in doubt. I would like Ms Loh to give us a longer deadline for homework as some of us might not be able to complete it in time. I would like to improve in maths as well. Thank you.

ReplyDeleteMy expectation for our Maths lesson and Miss Loh is that I will be able to discover the fun in Maths and not just learning it for the sake of examination. I hope Miss Loh will teach me how to apply Maths into our real life context and how it has already been applied into our real life. I also hope that Miss Loh will enable us to see Mathematics in our real life context =)

ReplyDeleteMy expectation for my Maths Exam is to get an A1

Lai Ziying

I would expect myself to work harder to improve in my Maths.

ReplyDeleteI expect myself to get what the teacher is saying and score good grades for maths. I expect my teacher to be clear and concise in teaching maths so that I can catch what she is saying and absorbed in the information. I expect my classmate who are stronger in maths to help pupils who are weak in maths

ReplyDeleteI expect the experience to be a fulfilling and exciting one. I also expect the teacher to be patient and help me in my learning.

ReplyDeleteI feel that I should be able to accept the challenges put in front of me and strive for the best in everything I do.

Our classmates should look out for each other and play a part in making each lesson a fun and enriching one.

I expect myself to ay attention during class and be helpful towards other classmates. I think that the Mathematics class will use our learning devices to help with some Mathematics problems. I hope the teacher will not be too strict towards us and will help us if we really need it. Lastly, I hope my classmates are helpful towards each other and will help each other out.

ReplyDeleteI hope that we can do well after bing in your class for this year, and be able to ask my friends about the problems with my maths problems.

ReplyDeleteI hope that the teacher will not go at such a fast speed when teaching and would stop to listen to the student's questions. She would also create a fun and exciting lesson so that the students would be more attentive when listening and would look forward to the next lesson.

ReplyDeleteI look forward to learning with my classmates!

JJ(:

my expectation of myself is that i will do well in maths

ReplyDeletei expect that the lesson will be fun and interesting

i expect the students in the class to be supportive

i expect the teacher to be fun

I will expect everybody to be supportive and help those who really needs help in this subject. I hope our teacher, Ms Loh, can teach us more new things so that my Maths can improve at a significant rate. I will hope to achieve good and satisfying results. I will try to achieve this goal by putting in all my effort and persevering.

ReplyDeletemany newer ways of learning like going out for treasure hunt and problem sums done online or on the white board, we can do it in groups more often and we can help each other to understand how the answer was found.

ReplyDeleteI expect my friends and I to be able to help each other and to be more sporting and to be more willing to work with other friends besides their usual teammates.
