STEM

STEM Journey

STEM is a curriculum that encompasses four specific disciplines: Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics. The four disciplines are grouped together and taught with the emphasis on real life application. At Quantum Academy, the focus when teaching STEM are on engaging in inquiry, engaging in logical reasoning, interpreting and communicating information. The Quantum programs build the foundation for students to succeed on their STEM journey offering guidance in general sciences and mathematics.

JELIC

JELIC is an international enrichment programme designed for children from age 3 to age 7. The JELIC curriculum balances the development of both hemispheres of the brain, through self-paced hands-on experience. JELIC facilitates the development of a child’s multiple intelligences. JELIC can help children sharpen their sense of observation, train their hands for manipulation, enhance their curiosity for discovery, build up their self-confidence, and develop their harmonious people skills.

PHILOSOPHY OF JELIC:

  • Self-motivated Learning Attitude
  • Teachers as Navigators
  • Discover the fun and curiosity through exploration
  • Building up the self-confidence through honor and encouragement
  • Developing the people skills through mutual respect and harmony

MPM Math

GRADE: 1 – 6

MPM is a leading math program that cultivates independent problem-solving skills and critical thinking skills through enjoyment of math.  Students who learn MPM can learn mathematical concepts and solve sophisticated math problems using basic skills they have acquired in the program.

Students are categorized into different levels based on their grade levels and logical skills after an initial assessment.  With the help of MPM material, students develop critical thinking skills and problem-solving skills, which helps them to become critical thinkers and build up a sense of
confidence.

Math Contest

GRADE: 5 – 12

Students are encouraged to take math contests based on their assessed strengths.  Quantum’s math contest prep course is designed to train students’ ability to think and to improve their problem-solving skills.  Quantum’s math contest prep course helps students summarize the types of math exams and problem-solving techniques. Students are able to develop logical and problem-solving skills through classroom training and mock exams.

Science

GRADE: 8 – 10

Science covers many different topics ranging from biology, physics, and chemistry.  However, these topics have no overlap, and students struggle from unit to unit as they start from scratch. As students specialize in biology, physics, and/or chemistry in their later grades, it is important that they have the right fundamentals to succeed.  Quantum Academy helps students succeed by building the foundation for core science topics, helping students develop an interest and appreciation for the variety of sciences.

Math

Math is a subject that relies on the accumulation of knowledge and concepts year after year; therefore, in order for students to succeed, strong fundamental math skills and good problem-solving techniques are required.  Quantum Academy strives to bridge the gap in students’ fundamental skills and focus on helping students in breaking questions down into manageable steps. By building fundamental skills and solving problems methodically, students will be able to tackle even the most difficult of questions.

Students are able to develop logical and problem-solving skills through classroom training and mock exams.

Chemistry

Chemistry is a balance of comprehending theories and solving problems. Students require a good understanding of the theories and being able to apply problem-solving techniques coupled with strong mathematics.  Quantum Academy helps students conceptualize and understand the complex theories, the various laws, and the common chemical reactions that impact our society and the environment.  Quantum Academy focuses on both quantitative and qualitative problems associated with chemistry to ensure that students gain the core knowledge and skills to succeed.

Physics

Physics requires a strong foundation in math as it includes many mathematical formulas applied to many complex concepts. Finding success in physics shares the similar path in math courses where practice makes perfect; students have to work through and get comfortable with various types of questions and problem solving techniques. Quantum Academy guides students through these different types of problems to make students feel comfortable and confident when tackling any questions that they may come across.

Biology

Biology is not simply about memorization of facts and terminology. To find success in biology, students have to truly understand the interactions and relationships of the various aspects of life from microbiology up to animal anatomy.  Quantum Academy directs the learning on understanding rather than memorizing through detailed and clear explanations of the biological concepts.

AP Courses

AP (Advanced Placement) is a program run by the College Board that allows high school students to take college courses to earn college credits and qualify for more advanced courses when they start college. AP is also a great way for students to boost their university applications by showing their passion and ability to challenge themselves. There are a variety of AP courses we offer, such as the popular AP English and Language Composition, AP Psychology, AP Calculus, AP Statistics, etc. Preparing for AP exams will expand the students’ knowledge and develop the students’ mind. This will make the transition from high school to university expectations more manageable.
