Department Brief

The Mathematics Department is committed to providing high-quality learning experiences and supporting our students in developing excellence in Mathematics. We engage students to facilitate their learning of mathematical concepts and processes, thinking skills and heuristics, and create opportunities for students to undertake problem solving with confidence and enjoyment. We encourage self-directed and reflective learning through varied teaching and assessment strategies, and infuse Habits of Mind into lessons to enhance content learning and foster meta-cognition. To inspire deeper insight and greater interest, students who have high potential are also encouraged to take up challenges in representing the school in various national and international competitions such as the Singapore Mathematical Olympiad and the ICAS Mathematics Competition.
