Mathematics

Curricular Goal

To build a community of independent and effective problem solvers.

The Mathematics fraternity aims to develop our students to become effective problem solvers. Students acquire proficiency in problem-solving skills through the use of the CPA (Concrete-Pictorial-Abstract) approach in the rigorous Mathematics curriculum. Inquiry and the gradual release of responsibility models are used as pedagogical approaches to develop confidence, co-operation and curiosity in our students.

Mathematics Programmes

  • Performance Tasks – Learning activities such as practical tasks and authentic learning experiences that students are engaged in to demonstrate their knowledge and skills in a specific topic.

  • Learning Journeys (LJs)/ Mathematics Trails – Students are exposed to authentic learning experiences beyond the classroom.

  • Learning Spaces, The Third Teacher – The school premises are used as the third teacher to engage students in activities during recess. Quizzes are also conducted to stimulate students’ thinking.
