MOE Mathematics Framework
For MOE Mathematics syllabus:
Every child is a creative problem solver (innovative, think of different ways), with a positive attitude (beliefs, interest, appreciation, confidence, perseverance) towards Mathematics
- To equip students with mathematical knowledge, skills and dispositions for lifelong learning
- To empower teachers to provide a more engaging, student-centred, and technology-enabled learning environment in Content, Pedagogy and Assessment
DIFFERENTIATED INSTRUCTION to stretch, enhance, and support
To better support students who need more reinforcement in their learning of Mathematics, the department has Learning Support for Mathematics (LSM) programmes for selected Primary One and Primary Two students. Students are put into smaller groups so that the teacher can customize activities based on their learning progress.

For students with high ability in Mathematics, they will be invited to join the Excellence 2000 (E2K) for Mathematics programme.

The competitions which we participate in:
- Raffles Institution Primary Mathematics World Contest (RIPMWC) – P4 to P6
- National Mathematical Olympiad of Singapore by NUS High (NMOS) – P4 and P5
- Singapore Mathematical Oylmpiad for Primary School by Hwa Chong (SMOPS) – P6 & selected P5 students
1. ‘I am a young Mathematics star’
To build our students’ interests and confidence in Mathematics, the department designed simple and fun activities to engage them to connect Mathematics with their daily life experiences, and experience successes in Mathematics.
2. RC3 (Reasoning, Communication, Collaboration and Connection)
Traditional teacher-centric lessons are no longer effective to meet the learning needs of our 21st century students. To prepare our students for future challenges, RC3 is a project which the department customized for our P3 and P4 students. Comprehensive lesson packages using the inquiry-based approach are carefully-designed for selected topics, to develop confident communicators with good reasoning skills. With the use of technology, student-centric activities with authentic learning experiences are implemented to make learning relevant, engaging and meaningful to their lives. This is to create opportunities for the students to discover, reason and communicate mathematics, through stimulating discussions and activities where they can explore possibilities and make connections, through collaborations with their peers.
Our students learn the best through play. Through these Mathematics games, students are able to better grasp their concepts, have a deeper understanding and apply the concepts learnt in class.
4. BEST Mathematical Problem Solving Approach
Problem Solving is at the heart of the Singapore Mathematics Curriculum. Our school adopts the BEST Mathematical Problem Solving Approach to develop our students’ metacognition. B for Be focused. E for explore and plan. S for solve the problem and T for think about the answer. This comprises of a list of questions to help students monitor and direct their cognitive resources to better understand and make sense of a given problem. Through the monitoring of their own thinking, students also increase ownership and take charge of their own learning.
5. CONCRETE – pictorial – abstract
We strongly believes that students have a deeper understanding of the concepts learnt through hands-on activities. Through these activities using Math manipulative, students are able to better grasp their concepts and apply the concepts in the assigned tasks.
