The good news is that this is the last week before two weeks of well-deserved break for Christmas and the New Year! The bad news is that my daughter has not finished all the work set, so she will be working, on her own, over the break to catch up with set assignments.
It's hard when the teacher lives in the house with you :)
As Maths and English Language are two of the accelerated subjects, I decided to just focus on these two subjects this week:
IGCSE Maths (0580)
Pemberton, (2012) Essential Mathematics for Cambridge IGCSE: Extended, [ISBN 9780199128747] pp.156 - 163; 316 - 323
How we covered the material: Probability is quite fun to tackle, but only if you focus on the details. After making a few mistakes, my daughter got the hang of reading the clue words in the question before working on the problems.
How I judged knowledge/skill acquisition: As the topic became trickier, I helped by doing some worked problems. Then, as far as possible, I left my daughter to work on the questions and check her own answers (sometimes she prefers to do this).
NOT COMPLETED, SO ASSIGNED FOR SELF-STUDY:
Probability pp. 452 - 455
Scatter Diagrams pp. 210 - 213
Frequency Tables pp. 254 - 257
Cumulative Frequency pp. 368 - 375
IGCSE English Language (0500)
Cox, (2010) Cambridge IGCSE First Language English Teacher's Resource [ISBN 9780521743693], pp. 89 - 95 (Unit 16)
How we covered the material: Reading through the texts first. These were comparative texts, (like last week) and enabled quite a lively discussion, especially as I knew children who were boarders.
How I judged knowledge/skill acquisition:
My daughter had to do an assignment, but as this was the last week of school for a couple of weeks, she didn't do it immediately. So, I can't judge it until she's done it and I get the chance to mark it!
