Objectives

  • To be committed in enabling pupils to acquire the necessary mathematical concepts and skills
  • To develop cognitive and metacognitive skills through a mathematical approach to problem solving
  • To develop positive attitudes and a sense of personal achievement in Mathematics
  • To empower pupils to be leaders in facilitating Mathematics learning among their peers

MOE’s Mathematics Framework

math_framework.jpg

The MOE’s Mathematics Framework above sets direction and provides guidance for the school’s teaching and learning, and assessment of mathematics. As the central focus of the framework above is mathematical problem solving, the school ensures that the pupils are given opportunities to solve problems using mathematics. This is done through the deliberate teaching of process skills, integrated with the learning of concepts and skills.

Programmes:

  • P2 to P6 Heuristics
    Through Primary One to Six, pupils are taught various concepts of tackling problem sums when the solution to the problems is not obvious. This is done  through our Heuristics Booklet packages.
  • P1 A-Math-zing Race
    In teams, P1 pupils strive to solve Math probles given at each station. Clues are provided which lead the teacs to the next destination or direct them to perform a task. The race is designed to challenge the pupils ‘ ability to collaborate with others, think critically and solve Mathematical problems effectively.
  • P1 and P2 Math Learning Journeys
    In collaboration with the English Department, P1 and P2 pupils embark on integrated learning journeys to experience outdoor literacy and numeracy learning.Through their visit to the Zoo, P1 pupils are able to immerge in nature and be amongst the animals while solving related mathematical problems. In groups, pupils are given the opportunity to observe their surroundings and have conversations with their group members and finally come to a consensus on their solutions to real problems.P2 pupils on the other hand, visit the supermarket to have a real life experience with numbers and money. This is made possible with prior planning whereby pupils discuss within their groups the ingredients to purchase for their sandwich–making activity which is to be conducted after the supermarket trip. Not only do they experience selecting, purchasing and paying for their items, they also learn the value of money as they have to restrict themselves to spend within the given budget
  • P2, P3, P4 & P5 Multiplication Challenge
    To support pupils’ learning of Multiplication facts, the Multiplication Challenge is organised for P2 to P5 pupils. It aims to strengthen pupils’ speed and accuracy in multiplication and stimulate pupils’ interest in Mathematics. It starts with a preliminary round which is held in class. After which, semi-final and final rounds are held in front of an audience (level pupils and teachers).
  • P3, P4 and P6 Parents’ Workshops
    Parents are invited to experience the learning of Mathematics in school. They are given an opportunity to solve Math problems sums together with their daughter in the classroom, with the help of Math teachers. Tips and skills are shared with parents so as to be able to support their daughters’ learning at home, and reinforce what they learn at school.
  • P4 and P5 Math and Science Carnival
    Pupils participate in a Math Carnival where they get a first-hand experience of making Mathematics come alive. The Carnival serves as a platform for creativity in learning and problem solving as pupils are tasked to design Mathematics games for their friends to play. The games focus on Mathematics concepts which the pupils have acquired. Pupils get to learn Mathematics the fun way.
  • P6 Math Intensive Remedial and Math Booster Programme
    These programmes aim to provide additional support for pupils and prepare them for Primary School Leaving Examinations. Based on results, selected pupils were asked to attend additional lessons so that teachers are able to carry out intensive revision for pupils.
