Events and Programme

Our mathematics programme and events are organised to arouse interest in pupils in the learning of mathematics. These programme allows pupils to learn mathematics in a fun and enjoyable way. At the same time, they also see the application of mathematics in real authentic situation which motivates them to learn mathematics.


1. Mathematics Trail (Primary 1-6)


Mathematics Trail is an interactive way to learn mathematics beyond the classroom and textbooks. Using mathematics trail, pupils can see and experience mathematics concepts that are applied in their daily activities and things around them. Through the use of I-pad, pupils are able to move about answering questions using the camera function, recording of video to answer and explain their answers. They also engaged in cooperative learning as they work collaboratively to complete the assigned tasks. For P5 pupils, they have the opportunity to have their mathematics trail at Changi Airport.

2. Learning Journey


One of the best ways to broaden our minds is to travel and be exposed to the world.  Learning journey encourage pupils to learn not only through the classroom but also through experiential learning, giving them the chance to break out of their academic routine.

4. Play and Learn Mathematics (PALM)


The play and learn mathematics (PALM) programme get pupils to apply their mathematical concepts in projects. Pupils develop 21 CC skills through planning, crafting and designing these projects.

Level

Project

P1

Pupils write a mathematical story/poem/jingle. They apply what they learnt on addition and subtraction to write mathematical stories.

P2

Pupils weigh the flour and measure the amount of water to make the dough before writing a recipe on making the pizza.

P3

Before going to the Zoo for their learning journey, pupils plan an itinerary for a day at the Zoo using what they have learnt in the topic time.

P4

Pupils design and create a mathematics game using any mathematical concepts they have learnt.

P5

Pupils create a video to teach a mathematical concept to their friends.

P6

Pupils design and create a mathematics trail in school for their primary 5 peers.

5. The Mathematical Olympiad Workshop


The mathematical olympiad workshop is organized for our Primary 3 to 6 pupils. This workshop exposes pupils to higher order thinking (HOT) questions and equip them with strategies on how to solve challenging problems.

Through the workshop, pupils will:
    • understand and appreciate the different problem-solving techniques
    • solve different types of primary mathematical olympiad questions
    • apply the best techniques on a given problem with more confidence


6. Mathematics Competitions


Pupils are encouraged to participate in the following mathematics competitions. These competitions provide a platform for pupils to demonstrate their mathematics skills learnt and also motivate them to strive for excellence in the learning of mathematics.

NMOS:National Mathematical Olympiad of Singapore ( NMO∑ ) is  an annual national competition organized by the NUS High School of Mathematics and Science
SMOPS:Singapore Mathematical Olympiad for Primary School organised by Hwa Chong Institution
RIPMWC:Raffles Institution Primary Mathematics World Contest
