Key programmes of Department

Singapore Mathematical Olympiad (SMO) Training
The Mathematics department engages vendor to provide training to higher ability students to compete in the prestigious SMO competition. These students will also have the opportunity to participate in other competitions related to Mathematics.
    • In the classroom:
      • Metacognition: Our teachers provide students with the opportunity to solve non-routine and open-ended problems, to discuss their solutions, to think aloud and reflect on what they are doing and to keep track of how things are going.
      • Learning Experience: Cognitive and metacognitive process skills are learned through carefully constructed learning experiences. For each of the topic that our teachers teach, the learning experiences focus on the mathematical processes and skills that are integral parts of learning of that topic and these experiences provide the students the opportunities to:
        • Take notes and organise information meaningfully;
        • Practise basic mathematical skills to achieve mastery;
        • Use feedback from assessment to improve learning;
        • Solve novel problems using a repertoire of heuristics;
        • Discuss, articulate and explain ideas to develop reasoning skills; and carry out a modelling project.
