Creative & Reflective Problem-Solvers
Discover joy and excitement.
Laying a Strong Foundation in numeracy skills
We believe that every child wants to and can learn. We focus on children’s needs when designing learning experiences. Laying a strong foundation in our Frontierers’ numeracy skills is our priority. The Math Department aims to enable our Frontierers to:
- acquire Mathematical concepts & skills for everyday use
- develop thinking, reasoning, communication, application and metacognitive skills
- build confidence and foster interest in Mathematics.
Diverse learning experiences
Our teachers create opportunities and space for our Frontierer to explore and discover the joy of learning. CPA (Concrete to Pictorial to Abstract) Approach is used to develop mathematical concepts.
Learning Experiences to ignite joy of learning in Mathematics
|Hands-on activities||Building of conceptual understanding|
|Show and Say||Communication/ Reasoning skills|
|Pair and Share||Collaborative skills|
|Play and Learn||Building of conceptual understanding through exploration|
|Developing students' confidence and enjoyment through Math Trail
To learn Mathematics through play and exploration, our Frontierers’ learning is extended beyond classroom. They are exposed to practical and real-life examples during the trail as the activities for each station took place in natural settings. The Department hopes that the experience gained will garner them to instil a positive attitude towards Mathematics and its uses in their daily lives.
|Working with our parents
As a Collaborative Partner, Parent Workshops are held annually to empower and equip parents with the relevant skills to support their child’s learning at home. Parents will also gain a deeper understanding on the strategies our teachers are using in the classroom and can help to reinforce relevant mathematical concepts too! We are heartened to receive favourable feedback from parents on the workshops the department has been conducting. Do look forward to the upcoming workshops that the Math Department is organising for the parents!
Provision of Opportunities through Talent Management
Math Olympiad Training is conducted for selected Primary 4 and Primary 5 Frontierers who have a strong foundation in Mathematics. These enrichment programmes aim to:
- To stimulate and develop Frontieres’ creative thinking and problem solving abilities.
- To enhance flexibility in Frontierers’ thinking and to expand their horizon that Mathematics learning is fun, exciting and challenging through a framework of problem solving approach
