Mathematics


Vision

To develop logical and critical thinkers who are competent in using mathematical reasoning, communication and problem solving skills in other fields and disciplines.

Mission

To provide a varied and authentic learning experience for our students, promoting interest and confidence in Mathematics.


Philosophy
The learning of mathematics involves exploration, analysis and presentation of math patterns and relations both within the subject and across other disciplines. It is not just an academic subject, but an important vehicle that  stretches the girls’ minds and promotes critical and analytical thinking.

Pedagogical approaches

    • Parallel Curriculum Model
    • Polya’s Problem Solving

Curriculum
Our curriculum enables our girls to acquire problem solving skills and engages them through a variety of learning experiences to appreciate the relevance, usefulness and connectedness of the subject to both real-world context and other disciplines.

It enables our girls to :
    • build a solid secondary mathematics foundation in preparation of higher level mathematical studies and supports other disciplines such as Sciences, Engineering and Economics in higher institutions
    • see and experience the beauty and practicability of mathematics in relation to the real-life environment
    • develop and demonstrate their understanding of logical thinking and creative problem solving skills
