How do we solve the problem below?
Should we solve the problem from the right to the left? Or left to right? Or we will multiply first?
To avoid these confusions – we teach students the powerful “spell” – PEMDAS – to help them remember the order of Math operations.
PEMDAS is a useful tip that helps children get used to the calculation process instead of just paying attention to finding answers. This approach is shown in Singapore Math. At Everest, Singapore Math “focuses on mathematical problem solving and emphasizes conceptual understanding, skills proficiency, learning of process skills, metacognition and the development of a positive attitude towards mathematics”.
Native speakers use idioms very often in both speaking and writing. Be proficient in idioms will help students practice English fully accurate as a native.
7 idioms below are commonly used with the school theme – a topic close to them 🙂 Let’s learn!
And don’t forget to get our smart flashcards.
The school theme is one of the many areas of life that students at E2 will be exposed to in English Language Arts courses. Not only help students to evoke worldview, but they also practice English fluently through real stories.
How do you say ½, ¾, or other fractions in English?
Math concepts such as fractions can be super confused and cause a great deal of math anxiety if students do not master in the early grades.
Learning fractions in English requires students understand how to say fractions in words. It helps them to solve math problems confidently and use in daily communication. At Everest, we are one of the first using Singapore Math system, which has been proven to be especially effective for young students – the CPA method.
Let’s learn how to say fractions in English in the pictures below!

7 Ways To Help Students Stay Focused In Classroom
5 Reasons Why Your Kids Hate Math (and how to fix it)
Paying attention in class is daunting for children. Not being able to concentrate in a class impedes how well you are able to perform academically. Fortunately, there are some really simple things parents can advise your children to help them stay focused and achieve better results. Concentration is like a muscle that requires regular exercise to strengthen.
These tips below will help your kids build their concentration muscles.
Parents can learn more about the reasons why kids does not stay focused in school here
Do work at the right level of difficulty
Students want to feel challenged, but not over-taxed. Work that’s too hard for them is tricky to concentrate on because they might not be able to understand what’s being said; work that’s too easy can be even more of a challenge because it’s liable to make them bored.
In fact, in English courses at Everest Education, students are mastering each sub-skill of listening, speaking, reading, and writing at their own speed and with their own leveled materials. Through this personalized learning approach, Everest Education students increase their English skills twice as fast as the one-size-fit-all method.
Think of questions
Thinking of questions is a good way to keep kids’ brains engaged with the topic at hand. Kids don’t necessarily need to ask them, just think of them and perhaps write them down. If the work is too hard, try to work out what kids would need to know to understand it fully. If it’s too easy, think of what kids would ask to advance to the next level.
Get involved in discussions
Let your kids know: make your thoughts heard. That’s not to say that they should spend the entire class asking incessant questions. Speaking up once or twice during a discussion is good. If they have a particular point, it’s a good idea to get it said early on, while their friends are still getting warmed up and before someone else says it first.
Let your kids know: making notes forces you to digest what you’re being told. Not only does it mean that kids actually pay attention, but they are also more likely to remember what’s been said as a result.
Have enough sleep
Make sure your kids stick to a sleep routine. Go to bed and wake up at roughly the same time, including during weekends.
Relaxing activity before bed. This will let your mind and body know it’s time to sleep. Do something that does not involve electronics, such as reading a book or taking a warm bath.
Maintain a good diet
Make sure to stay hydrated. Eat healthy foods. Go for whole grains, fruits, vegetables, and lean meats.

Check for medical difficulties
If your child’s doing all of the above and still finding it hard to concentrate, it may be worth considering whether there’s a deeper explanation.
Children who need to wear glasses (be myopic) – or a child who has worn glasses but need a stronger prescription, paying attention to the board all the time will make them tired and reduce concentration. Also for children with hearing problems, it will be difficult for them to understand what the teacher is saying. Take a look at the symptoms and visit your doctor if necessary.
