The key Math Programme aims to enable our students to:
Math Thinking Programme consists of
Mathematical problem solving is central to mathematics learning. The Polya’s Problem Solving steps are explicitly taught in the mathematics classroom. To better meet the diverse learning needs of our students, our teachers will vary the degree of scaffolding through differentiated instructions to develop and stretch our students’ mathematical reasoning and thinking skills for process skills worksheets.
The Math Odyssey aims to promote joy of learning in mathematics by allowing students to explore various games during recess. The games are specifically selected to stimulate mathematical reasoning and strategy development in a collaborative setting. Some examples of the games are Sleeping Queen, 7 ate 9, Zeus on the Loose and Blokus which sharpen students’ strategic thinking along with valuable arithmetic skills and spatial visualisation skills.
Habits of Mind is knowing how to behave intelligently when one doesn’t know the answer. The programme aims to develop 3 out of the 16 Habits of Mind, Striving for Accuracy, Persisting, and Flexible Thinking, as identified by Costa and Kallick. These habits empower the students to use their mathematical knowledge and skills to solve problems.
