Lifelong Mathematics Learners
Our Mathematics curriculum aims to equip our pupils with Mathematical skills, processes and concepts so that they will become effective and creative problem solvers in life.
Department Philosophy and Approach
Our department programmes strive to equip our pupils with Mathematical skills, processes and concepts to solve problems in a variety of contexts within and outside Mathematics. Our teachers conscientiously practice the 3 phases of learning in the classroom – Readiness to Learn, Engagement in Learning and Mastery in Learning.
We provide opportunities for students to
• enhance conceptual understanding through use of various mathematical tools including ICT tools;
• apply concepts and skills learnt in real-world context;
• communicate their reasoning and connections through various mathematical tasks and activities;
• build confidence and foster interest in mathematics.
Students with potential in Mathematics are exposed to higher forms of Mathematical training beyond the curriculum. They are provided with opportunities to further stretch their abilities in National-Level Competitions such as the Singapore Mathematics Olympiad (SMO) and International Competitions and Assessments for Schools (ICAS).
Principles of Accounts
Principles of Accounts (POA) is designed to teach age-appropriate and relevant accounting knowledge, skills and values. In addition, students will understand how businesses use accounting and non-accounting information to make decisions. Through the subject, they will acquire transferrable skills that they can apply in their daily lives.
The POA syllabus aims to develop in students the knowledge and skills to prepare, communicate and use both accounting information and non-accounting information related to the business to make decisions.
The POA unit includes a series of activities to stimulate students’ interest and inquisitiveness towards the subject.
Computer Application (CPA)
The Computer Applications (CPA) curriculum spans over four years, from Secondary 1 to Secondary 4. It is a compulsory subject for all Normal Technical (NT) students and students will sit for the N(T)-Level National Examination at the end of Secondary 4.
The Computer Applications (CPA) syllabus aims to prepare students to be technologically adept citizens, and to function and contribute effectively in an increasingly technologically-driven world. The syllabus emphasizes on fundamental knowledge and skills, and includes the appreciation and use of several software application packages for word processing, computer drawing and image editing, multimedia presentations and documents, spreadsheet calculations and charts, game design, programming; as well as, applications on the Internet. This will better prepare students for further studies in programming and media-related courses; as well as for the work place and future learning.
All students will be exposed to internet technologies and tools. Hands-on activities continue to be the main feature of this skill-based subject. Tasks that require an integrated use of office software applications and problem sets that step the learner through the learning process will feature prominently in the course of learning.
Students will be given opportunities to be exposed to animation and game development projects that will be part of the curriculum in Secondary 2 and Secondary 3, respectively.
