Vision: Nurturing confident and curious pupils who are independent and creative problem- solvers
Mission: To nurture future-ready students by developing their mastery in Mathematics through joy of learning
MOE Mathematics Framework
The Mathematics Framework has been the cornerstone of the Mathematics Curriculum. It involves the acquisition and application of mathematics concepts and skills in a wide range of situations including non-routine, open-ended and real-world problems. The development of mathematical- problem-solving ability is dependent on five inter-related components, which are namely Concepts, Skills, Processes, Attitudes and Metacognition.
In Corporation Primary School, we seek to develop the five components in each of our students through our school-based curriculum. We want to engage our students with learning experiences, which promote authenticity and connect to real life applications to stimulate the interest in their learning.
Our Key Highlights
1. Performance Tasks (P1 to P6)
Pupils are engaged in various hands-on learning tasks to deepen the Conceptual Understanding in Mathematics.
2. Math Journaling (P1 to P6)
Math Journals assist in assessing pupils’ thinking and promotes communication skills in pupils. It consolidates learning and allows pupils to reflect on the learning in the classroom. Journals can mainly be Investigative, Affective and Procedural in nature.
3. Math Trails (P1 and P2)
4. P1 Shopping Trip to IMM
In line with the topic, Money, the P1 pupils will be going for a shopping trip to GIANT supermarket at IMM shopping centre to purchase items for a Class Party that they will be tasked to plan in groups. Prior to the trip, the pupils will be involved in planning and budgeting for the items that need to be purchased for the party. This experience provides pupils an opportunity to apply the concept of money in a real-life situation and at the same time develop financial literacy and collaborative skills.
5. Heuristics Skills (P1 to P6)
Heuristics are problem solving strategies that pupils can adopt to solve routine and non-routine word problems. Pupils from all levels would be taught a set of Heuristic Skills during their Math lessons. They will also be exposed to a variety of problems that would allow them to apply the heuristics.
6. ICT –based Lesson (P1 to P6)
Pupils are given the opportunity to experience and harness ICT in classroom lessons. Teachers use various platforms to engage pupils in the learning of Mathematics.
7. Learning Support for Mathematics (LSM - P1 and P2)
Selected pupils are supported through the LSM Programme to deepen their understanding of Mathematics. This programme comprises customised, well-paced lessons that will support the pupils in the learning of Math.
8. ICAN Mathematics (Improving Confidence and Achievement in Numeracy)
The MOE ICAN Math learning aims to improve the pupils’ confidence level in numeracy. This programme is for selected classes and it provide pupils a systematic approach to learning Mathematics.
9. Sudoku Mathematics (P4)
Sudoku Mathematics promotes pupils’ logical thinking and enhance their problem-solving abilities as they engage in different levels of solving the Sudoku activities. This fun and engaging classroom activities then translate to pupils participating in friendly Interclass Sudoku Competitions.
Our Primary 4 pupils were introduced to Sudoku as a platform to improve their mathematical skills like reasoning, logical thinking and problem solving. It started out as a practice in class 30 minutes a week during Math lessons. The teachers also encourage the pupils to do Sudoku as part of filler activity. After weeks of practise, the pupils participated in an inter-class competition where the top 3 competed with others from the different classes.
In the finals, the participants displayed immense perseverance as the Sudoku puzzles set for them were tough. 6 pupils emerged as Sudoku champions in their respective categories: Advanced and Intermediate. The rest of the participants did very well too!
10. Symmetry Art (P4)
12. Math Olympiad (P6)
13. E2K Mathematics (P4 and P5)
14. Olympiad Mathematics Competition
Pupils from the Math Olympiad programme are also given the opportunity to participate in the following platforms to apply their knowledge and skills.
- Hwa Chong Institution (SMOPS)
- Raffles Instituition (RIPMWC)
- River Valley High
- ACS(I) (NMOS)
- Yusof Ishak Secondary School
