Key Programs For Each Level


Secondary 1

Authentic Problem Solving

A non- pen and paper assessment programme revolving around the

application of Science and Mathematics to create a bridge model in

order to solve a real-world problem. The aim of the programme is to

encourage self-directed and collaborative learning in our students, and

to develop and assess their reasoning, solving and communication

competencies.

 

Math Manipulative (For Sec 1 Express)

A sequence of location-based Mathematical activities that are

designed based on the mathematical manipulative to encourage

collaborative learning among the students and to develop and assess

their reasoning, solving and communication competencies.

Math Obstacle Course (For Sec 1 NA/NT)

A sequence of location-based Mathematical activities designed to

encourage collaborative learning and to develop and assess the

students’ reasoning, solving and communication competencies.

 

Special Math Module I (For selected group of students)

A programme that aims to stretch the cognitive and meta-cognitive

skills of our high-ability students through learning to apply Polya’s

Problem Solving strategies to higher-order mathematic problems

beyond the curriculum syllabus.

Secondary 2

Authentic Problem Solving (Applied Learning Programme)

A non- pen and paper assessment programme that involves the

students’ application of mathematics and scientific knowledge to

create a solar car to solve a real-world problem. The aim of the

programme is to encourage self-directed and collaborative learning in

our students, and to develop and assess their reasoning, solving and

communication competencies.

Lost In Algewood Tournament (For Sec 2 Express)

An annual inter-house tournament based on a life-sized algebra board

game “Lost in ALGEWOODS” to promote the love for algebra, strategic

thinking, collaborative learning and class esprit de corp.

 

maths3

 

Alge-Miner (For Sec 2 NA/NT)

A sequence of station based activities that allow every student to

compete among themselves in a fun and safe environment and at the

same time to also learn manipulating algebraic expressions.

maths4

 

ICAS Mathematics

An international competition and assessment to test and challenge the

mathematical skills of our students.

 

Special Math Module II (For selected group of students)

A programme that aims to stretch the students’ mathematical thinking

and technical ability in solving mathematical problems beyond the

curriculum syllabus. This is a continuation of the Special Math Module

I where students will strengthen their skills in applying Poly’s Problem

Solving strategies. At the end of the programme the students will

participate in the Singapore Mathematical Olympiad competition

(Junior category).

Secondary 3

Mathematical Modelling (For Sec 3 Express)

A non- pen and paper assessment module that requires our students

to do problem solving through mathematical modeling of a given real

life problem to develop and assess their reasoning, solving and

communication competencies.

 

Financial Literacy Programme (For Sec 3 NA/NT)

A programme to develop and enhance our students in their financial

literacy.

Secondary 4

Singapore Mathematics Olympiad

An annual national competition to test and stretch the ingenuity of our high-ability students in mathematical problem solving. 

Highlights

Honourable Mention in the Singapore Mathematical Olympiad competition (Senior category) 

HIghlights for 2018

1. Mathepulative Programme 2018

The Mathematics Department held its annual Mathepulative programme for Secondary 1N1, 1N2 and 1T1 on 21 May 2018. The programme encourages students to work in their teams to develop thinking, reasoning, problem-solving, and communication skills while learning and discussing Mathematical concepts. The programme is conducted through an Amazing Race styled concept where students are expected to move around the school premises to various stations to complete the activities presented to them.


2. International Competitions and Assessments for Schools (ICAS) 2018

The Mathematics Department conducted the 2018 International Competitions and Assessments for Schools (ICAS) Singapore for 27 selected Secondary 2 Express students on 24 July 2018. The ICAS is administered by the University of New South Wales (UNSW). It is part of the school’s Mathematics enrichment programme that is designed to interest, encourage, and develop students in their Mathematical abilities by exposing them to higher order thinking questions and content matter beyond their syllabus.
