    PSLE and Lower Secondary School Mathematics

    Follows MOE curriculum

    Teaching Approach

    Each lesson starts out with the teacher going through key concepts and examples, followed by students practicing problems under close guidance of the teacher. Our syllabus follows the MOE school curriculum – this ensures that we give students the opportunity to practice, and the confidence to do well in school tests and exams. We believe in maximizing each student’s potential, and providing advanced learning oppotunities whenever possible to keep them engaged and excited about mathematics. Students with potential can expect to be learning mathematics at 1 or 2 levels above their current grade in Primary School.

     

    Assignment Types

    We use 3 types of assignments to effectively instruct our students

    Skill Mastery

    Skill Mastery imparts the basic foundational knowledge and skills required for each topic, with simple examples to illustrate concepts

    Heuristics

    Heuristics introduces students to the most powerful problem-solving methods that will help students solve the toughest questions in their exams

    Problem Solving

    Problem Solving exposes students to the plethora of questions in a given topic, and challenges their ability to analyze each question; and employ the right heuristic to solve it

    Our Learning Focus

    Foundation-Building

     

    Primary 1 and 2

     

    It is very important to build a strong maths foundation in a child’s early years. This foundation will determine how fast and effectively a child can learn and pick up new mathematical skills and knowledge in the later years of their schooling journey. Our curriculum focuses concurrently on mastering the basics and generating interest in the subject.

     

     

    Acquiring Skills

     

    Primary 3 and 4

     

    Our students start to learn and use model and other heuristics on problem questions of varying difficulty. These problem-solving techniques will give them the confidence to solve every question in section C of their math paper.

     

     

     

     

    Critical Thinking and

    In-Depth Understanding

     

    Primary 5 and 6

     

    In this stage, we equip students with critical thinking skills, advanced problem solving techniques and in-depth understanding of math topics in order to score well in the toughest math exams. We will teach them alternate problem-solving techniques such as branching and Venn diagram methods. These methods will equip them with all the tools needed to solve the toughest questions in the most challenging topics, including ratio, percentage and fractions.

    Algebraic Expertise

     

     

    Secondary 1 and 2

     

    Algebra is the centerpiece of the entire secondary math syllabus. Our curriculum ensures that our students will be equipped with competent mastery of algebra. Questions are arranged in increasing difficulty to emphasize on conceptual understanding, fundamental techniques and applications. We include challenging problems to expose students to higher order thinking that will give them a competitive edge in school.
