Our vision is encapsulated in the MGS Young Mathematician’s Prayer below:


The MGS Primary Mathematics Curriculum is based on the MOE 2021 Primary Mathematics Syllabus. The goal of the curriculum is to ensure that all students will achieve mastery of mathematical concepts and skills that will serve them well in life.

Progression of Curriculum

The concepts and skills covered in the syllabus are organised along 3 content strands.

Topics taught under each content strands gradually increase in depth and in level of difficulty in a spiral progression.

Concepts and Skills covered from P1 – P6

Number and Algebra

Measurement and Geometry


  • Whole numbers, fractions, money, decimals, and the four arithmetic operations (addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division)

  • Calculation with calculators

  • Factors and multiples

  • Ordering of numbers

  • Approximation and estimation

  • Percentage

  • Ratio

  • Rate

  • Speed

  • Algebra (algebraic expression in one variable only)

    • Measurement of length, mass, volume, time, and angle

    • Area and perimeter of triangles, squares, and rectangles, area and circumference of circles, and volume of cubes and cuboids

    • Properties of simple geometric figures

    • Nets of simple solids

    • Line symmetry

    • Picture graphs, bar graphs, tables, line graphs, and pie charts (including interpretation and use of information to solve problems)

    • Average

    School-based Assessments

    Our assessments are broadly classified as follows:

    1. Assessment for Learning: Formative assessments are incorporated into daily lessons to provide timely feedback to support students’ learning.

    1. Assessment of Learning: Semestral assessments are conducted for P3 to P6 students under formal conditions to assess the extent to which the learning outcomes as specified in the syllabus have been achieved.

    The table below shows the type of summative assessments across the levels:





    Mid-Year Examination

    Weighted Assessment

    End-of-Year Examination


    Activity-based lessons

    Activity-based lessons engage pupils in exploring and developing their conceptual understanding of mathematical skills and processes through carefully constructed learning experiences. Where appropriate, Ed Tech tools are incorporated into lessons to help pupils make meaningful connections and to uncover abstract concepts.

    Math Builder

    Math Builder is conducted for selected P3 pupils on Wednesday and Thursday mornings before school begins. This programme aims to build students’ fluency and foundation in basic mathematical concepts.

    Academic Support

    Needs-based and targeted academic support and consultations are conducted after school for selected P3 to P6 students to support their learning and help bridge learning gaps.

    Talent Development

    For Upper Primary students who display a strong interest and aptitude for Mathematics, there is a variety of talent development programmes designed to further inspire deeper learning in Mathematics. These include E2K Mathematics for P4 and 5 students and Mathematics Olympiad training for P5 and 6 students.
