Children who are creative and confident problem solvers and love Mathematics


To develop reasoning, thinking skills and problem solving skills in every child

MOE Mathematics Framework:

Math Framework

The central focus of the framework is mathematical problem solving, that is, using mathematics to solve problems. The framework stresses conceptual understanding, skills proficiency and mathematical processes, and gives due emphasis to attitudes and metacognition. These five components are inter-related.


We believe that all students can learn and want to learn mathematics. We create opportunities for all students to be actively engaged in learning Mathematics. We foster positive attitudes in students towards Mathematics and make learning fun and meaningful through a variety of learning experiences.


As explained by Ms Eileen Puah, Head of Department for Mathematics, “We have shopping time in class and learning journeys to help our students relate Mathematics to everyday life. We use manipulatives such as fraction discs and place value cards to help our students understand concepts better.”

Description of programmes:

E2K Mathematics Programme

How do we deepen our students’ learning in Mathematics?

Our students in the Accelerated Programme to Enhance students’ eXperience (APEX) attend the E2K Mathematics Programme. The materials are taken from the MOE Gifted Education Branch. We aim to develop students’ mathematical reasoning skills and deepen their conceptual understanding through an inquiry approach.

Neharika, a Primary 4 student in APEX, shared, “We look forward to every lesson as we get to solve challenging puzzles. We are happy to work with our friends to discuss and solve them. We present our solutions to our teachers and friends so that they can help us improve.”


Mathematics Olympiad

Mathematics Olympiad workshops are organised for Primary 4 to 6 students who are keen to enrich and enhance their learning in Mathematics. Students who perform well are selected to represent the school in external competitions such as the National Mathematical Olympiad of Singapore (NMOS) and the Singapore Mathematical Olympiad for Primary Schools (SMOPS).

Brandon, a Primary 5 student who had taken part in the annual Mathlympics competition, said, “We ask questions to help us understand the questions better. We persevere in our efforts to solve the questions.”

Use of ICT

To motivate and engage our students in learning, ICT is infused into Mathematics lessons. Students use the ‘See, Think, Wonder’ thinking routine to apply the mathematical concepts they have learnt to real-life situations. The Student Learning Space (SLS) and ICT tools (such as Microsoft Excel and GeoGebra) provide opportunities for students to work collaboratively, deepen their understanding and be self-directed learners.

Math Challenge

Students have the opportunities to take part in math challenge activities every term. These activities include magic number, sudoku, secret codes and multiplication tables. The aims of the math challenge are to build students’ factual fluency, strengthen their mathematical skills and nurture an intrinsic motivation towards learning mathematics in our students. The results are displayed on the level board to celebrate students’ success. A class certificate is given to affirm the good work and team effort. Learning is made joyful and fun.

Math Star Award

Hard work  Perseverance = Success

We recognise the excellent work and good effort put in by our students in learning Mathematics. We equip students with problem-solving skills and importantly instill in them the virtues of perseverance, determination and confidence when they solve problems. “I love to solve problems and I do my work well. I am so happy to receive the Math Star certificate this term.” says Min En, a Primary 1 student, proudly.

STEM Programme - ALP

This programme aims to leverage on STEM to create more meaningful and engaging activities that integrate engineering and technology in Mathematics and Science to fuel students’ enthusiasm in learning as well as to promote 21st century skills – critical thinking, decision-making, collaboration, communication and creativity. It provides students with opportunities to innovate and apply content knowledge to bridge the gap between key theoretical concepts and real-world applications.
