Uni degree (Mechanical engineering) NTU
Hi Students and Parents! Welcome to my Primary school "Heat" course! I am Kydon, Principal math and science tutor of Levelup tuition. In this course, i am teaching about HEAT energy. This bite sized program allows you and your child to learn in a jiffy about what heat is all about and to understand my fun loving teaching style. My centre is situated in Toa payoh, within minutes of walking distance from Toa payoh MRT station. Click on the title to find out more about me or to contact me!
The best way to teach a child to learn? Visualization. In this video, I use tools to depict the flow of heat from one place to another. Using simple tools (Markers, to be exact), I utilized the power of imaging to help the child retain the concept.
What are the effects when one gains heat? My method of teaching in this video is to dramatize the concepts so that the child understood the concept and with that, memorise the concept. I will also highlight the key words to be used in exams.
What will happen when ice gains heat? How do you answer this question to gain the marks? I will run through a question to show what are the keywords used for answering this particular question in exam.
To enhance the child learning, physical items are displayed to allow them to visually related to the concept of poor conductor of heat. In this example, I introduce Styrofoam as a poor conductor of heat.
To enhance the child learning, physical items are once again displayed to allow them to visually related to the concept of good conductor of heat. In this example, I introduce metal as a good conductor of heat.
In this last lesson, I demonstrated with the “BEST” conductor of heat! Using a copper rod to show how it can ‘Cut’ through ice, I explain how the heat transfer managed to achieve it. In my lessons, I allow students to physically handle these items. I discovered that the students’ knowledge retention is the highest through the physical involvement in these experiments. Hope that you or your child had gain knowledge through my video lessons. You contact me at 88171185 or check out my profile page
