HOTS questions aren’t easy. But doing them will boost your child’s motivation in math

Higher-Order Thinking Skills (HOTS) distinguishes critical thinking skills from low-order learning outcomes, such as those attained by rote memorization.

HOTS is based on various taxonomies of learning, particularly by Benjamin Bloom in 1956. The chart shows a revised version of Bloom’s taxonomy from Anderson, L. W. & Krathwohl, D.R., et al (2001).

HOTS is believed to better prepare children beyond the standard school maths curriculum, and empower them to interpret ideas, information, discover new solutions and improve their understanding in maths.

Students who have good level of HOTS are expected to succeed in their studies later."
With HOTS, your child is likely to achieve:

Let's see how HOTS makes difference
