A new JC 1 student from PJC joined one of my classes today and I realise she doesn’t fit into any of the lessons I am conducting. Reason? PJC is adopting a syllabus that is different from the majority of the JCs or IPs.
PJC chose to begin with vectors, which is voted to be one of the 2 HARDEST topic for Pure Math section. Most schools would start with either 1) Graphing Techniques or 2) Sequence and series. I am not sure what signal PJC is trying to give their students but the students will be struggling in school due to the difficulty level of the topic, plus they will find it very hard to fit into tuition classes because the rest are doing something else.
