- engage students through providing a differentiated academic curriculum and a learner-centred environment, harnessing the strengths of ICT and curriculum innovations,
3. enrich students by creating learning opportunities for students to analyse, interpret, formulate, make connections and apply mathematical concepts to real situations.
Mathematics Trail 2018
To enhance learning and nurture the joy of learning, the Secondary 2 Express and Normal (Academic) students took part in the Mathematics Trail, an organised race where students use creative thinking skills to solve real-life problems at five different stations. To ensure learner engagement, a competitive element was introduced as students used the Surface Pro tablets to navigate the race and unlock different stations in the shortest time possible.
The trail was a great opportunity for students to experience the relevance of Mathematics around us and work together as a team.
Singapore Mathematical Olympiad Training & Competition 2018
A 10-week Math Olympiad Training was organised for a selected group of Secondary Two Express students. The SMO training was one of the platforms for differentiated learning under the school's Talent Development Programme. It was designed to provide high ability student an area to develop their cognitive process in Mathematics. The training further enhanced the students' problem-solving skills and mathematical knowledge.
In the Singapore Math Olympiad competition 2018, a total of 21 student represented our school in the SMO competition held in May.
