This is in response to the 1 × 10^{n} missed calls (from these few days) that are currently residing in Miss Loi’s handphone now:

As Miss Loi is deeply embroiled in her Mega Jφss Sticks sessions during this week of consecutive O Level A/E-Maths papers, please SMS or email your contact number if you’re interested in joining her maths classes for the new season (commencing December 2009), and she’ll get back to you when things have calmed down (around early November).

Thank You for your kind cooperation.

**UPDATE:**

Oh our dear Heavens, blessed be thy name!

We thank thee for answering our prayers

By sending us an easy paper!

Miss Loi! I think paper one was good!

Hi Miss Loi, paper one was doable! I did it twice 🙂

Yay! I can pass the paper! Finally I’m out of F9 range! Yay! Thank you miss loi! I love you!

We shall now pray in earnest

that no careless mistakes went undetected

and our workings and significant figures were in perfect order.

Eh can do leh. 😀 that means tmr will be hard T.T

And we pray with all our hearts

that others may not be as smart.

Today paper very easy sure moderate until very high

We shall now mug with renewed vigour

the following topics that we think will appear:

- Algebra (Word problem involving a quadratic equation)
- Arithmetic (maybe a longish money problem with tax, exchange rate etc.)
- Trigonometry (bearings, 3D problem with angles of elevation/depression, sine/cosine rule etc.)
- Graph plotting
- Number Patterns
- Matrices
- Sets
- Probability & Statistics (Standard Deviation)
- Geometric Properties of Circles
- Completing the square method
- Mensuration
- *Construction (remember to still bring along your mathematical instrument set!)
- *Direct/indirect variations

*Not your usual EMaths Paper 2 topics

Let us pray …

Oh our dear Heavens, look down on us

your humble GCE O Level 2009 students,

who are doomed to stop our MSN chats,

neglect our pets, and put our mafia wars on hold,

as we face our destinies in this Week of Mathematical Armageddon.Grant us a good sleep the night before

and the willpower to forget the Liverpool-ManU match

for our maximum focus on the papers at hand.We pray that the roads be clear,

so that we reach our exam halls on time.We pray that our calculators (with fresh batteries) work,

and that our curve rules bend smoothly,

and that the lead in our mechanical pencils don’t fall out.We pray that our breakfast be cooperative

so we don’t~~face an emergency in the middle of it.~~lao s

Give us this day divine guidance

that we may NOT accidentally write as ,

and that 2(3.1 × 10^{2}) = 2 × 3.1 × 10^{2}NOT 2 × 3.1 × 20^{2},

and we may recognize that 1 m = 100 cm but 1 m^{2}= 100 × 100 cm^{2}= 10000 cm^{2},

and thatretardationin Kinematicshas NO negative sign.Give us the wisdom to unlock the differences between Integers, Rational, Irrational, Prime, Natural and Real Numbers.

Grant us the strength to summon up ancient knowledge from Sec One to find our HCFs and LCMs,

and to recall that, in an-sided regular polygon, eachexteriorangle = andinteriorangle is actually = .May we not forget the steps to construct perpendicular & angle bisectors,

and we pray that the screws on our compasses be tight enough to save our accuracies.May we be wise not to trust blindly

our super duper calculators’ EQUATION functionality

which MAY shock you with an answer when there’s none (non-complex ones)

(e.g. try solvingx^{2}+x+1=0)Guide us with your light

as we cross the treacherous swamp that is the completing the square method

and bless us with the wisdom

to find the max/min point ofy= ±(x−a)(x−b) via the line of symmetry .Bestow upon us the mega memory to recall all

12Graphs ofy=ax,ax^{2},ax^{3}, , ,a^{x},

though only 6 are listed here.Bless us with the instinct to switch the inequality sign whenever the signs are switched e.g.

−p>−3

⇒p<3And bless us again

with the instinct to draw a Probability Tree Diagram whenever we are stuck in the Probabilities question.Grant us our wish

for our spotted questions to appear (and must be easy too)

But forgive us for spotting questions in the first place

for not everyone is a study PRO whose life is a timetable.And forgive Miss Loi for not saying more

since she doesn’t like repeating some stuff that’s been said before (read only the EMaths portion) .So lead us, oh dear Heavens, to our

Mathematical Salvation!

For if we pass this, we promise to be good

and stop our MSN/Facebook earlier for our poly/A-Levels.Oh and if by any chance our handwritings look horribly illegible on the script,

pray tell the examiner to have mercy on us

for we may be nervous and our fingers tremblingly weak.

**All The Best**

Dear Ms Looi,

Here's wishing you and your students all the best of luck in the 2009 GCE O level.

And yup, it is amazing how people choose to look for next year's tuition in the precise week that the most important exams are being held and tutors have absolutely no time to answer the calls. Personally I am so messed up that I can't even calculate my students' tuition fees lol. My students are mocking me on how I can't even add up. >.<

Regards,

Michael

Good luck

Nash! Yes always allow time for checkingespeciallyif it's an easy paper (like yesterday's).Long time no see

Michaeland all the best to your lucky charges too!Think the phenomenal timing is due to the release of report cards in schools (with the corresponding adrenalin rush) this time of the year.

P.S. You got Miss Loi's name wrooooooooooooong
