Journey through our Primary Mathematics courses

P1 & P2 Mathematics

Our Primary 1 and 2 Mathematics Programme equips students with core foundation concepts such as basic mathematical operations (addition, subtraction, multiplication, division), and fundamental techniques to count money, tell time, and measure length, amongst other skills.

Students will learn with the help of structured concept papers, which include step-by-step worked examples, and practice questions. Real world examples of Mathematics in daily lives are also included to pique students’ interest in the subject. Through our curriculum, students will gain confidence in tackling basic Mathematics questions, and better appreciate the connections between Mathematics and everyday life.

P3 & P4 Mathematics

In Primary 3 and 4, students will have to apply the foundation concepts that they have learnt to solve word problems, and also pick up more complicated concepts such as measuring angles, interpreting tables and graphs, and finding angles. In addition, students will apply mathematical operations and measurement techniques to deal with larger numbers, and more digits.

Our Primary 3 and 4 Mathematics Programme equips students with the skills to tackle word problems, and break down the approach to solving a question in a systematic, step by step manner. Students will also learn Mind Stretcher’s Power Codes, which are our in-house problem-solving strategies and heuristics that can be used by students to solve commonly tested questions quickly and accurately.

P5 & P6 Mathematics

In Primary 5 and 6, students have to gear up for the rigour of the PSLE mathematics examinations, and contend with longer and more complicated word problems, which require more intermediate steps. Students will need to apply higher order thinking skills, and heuristics to effectively tackle these questions.

Our Primary 5 and 6 mathematics programme will equip students with the tool-kit to achieve success in the PSLE. We reinforce students’ ability to comprehend and analyse the word problems, and deconstruct solutions into simpler, and more manageable steps, which students can easily understand. The full repertoire of Mind Stretcher Power Codes will be imparted to students, so that they have all the necessary heuristics at their finger-tips, to solve various types of problems. To sharpen their examination techniques, students will also get access to trending examination questions, and an analysis of commonly-made mistakes by students.

Our testimonials

What our students & parents say about us

Mrs Shum is a very dedicated teacher. She has given me detailed feedback to improve my writing and her lessons are very engaging. I really appreciate the personalised feedback which helps me identify areas I should work on more. She goes the extra mile to share interesting facts every lesson which has helped expand my general knowledge in so many ways. With Mrs Shum's tips and MS Worksheets explaining how to master various components, I'm able to answer questions with greater confidence. Lastly, Mrs Shum cares deeply about our emotional well-being, and she always reminds us that trying our best is more important than the results.

I would like to thank the Chinese Language teacher very much for her effort, concern and encouragement for my child! He is very happy to be in her class and has enjoyed the Chinese Language lessons very much. He has tried his very best in the PSLE examination last year 2022 and his Chinese has improved. The constant encouragement from his Chinese Language teacher makes a difference and goes a long way!  Thank you Mr Kuek and all the teachers very much who has taught him and shared during the online bootcamp and the webinars! We really appreciate the effort, time, love and understanding put into preparation of the examination booklets and materials and staying behind after the online lessons to answer the students' questions! Wishing all the teachers and staff a very Happy blessed year 2023 ahead!

Dear Mrs Shum, thank you so much for all the guidance and support you’ve given me since i joined ms. Since i joined at a pretty late stage, i didn’t expect myself to acquire so much valuable knowledge that allowed me to learn English from a whole new perspective, as well as to perceive life in many different aspects. Thank you for always being so generous in sharing with us your personal experiences that engaged us during class, and making English such a fun subject for us explore the wonders of it! Thank you for taking the extra mile to further support me in English Literature as well, it really has been very useful!! It has truly been an eye-opening experience learning from you and I will remember these lessons as part of the unforgettable memories of learning in this subject❤️🥰

Mrs Shum is a caring teacher who is concerned about her students and their well-being. She has helped me improve in my English and has always been very caring towards me. She stresses on our mental health and has encouraged us a lot. Her teaching is amazing and i love how she shares interesting facts related to the topic we were studying and she exposed us to the basics of general paper too. To add, Mrs Shum gives specific feedback on our work which allowed us to know what we can improve on. The MS comprehension worksheets were also of great help as they allow me to know how to answer certain questions in a straightforward manner. Mrs Shum marks quite strictly which also further prepared me well for the O-levels where the marking is usually more lenient. As a result, I learnt how to do better and could gauge where i stand. Mrs Shum also made me realise that i was better in personal recount essays which allowed me to do well in the O-levels. Overall, MS worksheets were of great help and useful with specific tips and strategies. Thank you so much.

Dear Mr Alvin, Just want to text you to say "Thank you for all you have done for all the kids! Elvyn scored AL6 for his 2022 PSLE!“ A special mention to Teacher Meili, Teacher Audrey, Teacher Ryan and 丁老师。Not only were they never annoyed by his endless questions and constant requests for ways to improve himself, they guided him and encouraged him to do more and better. We are so blessed to have met all of you! I had introduced friends to send their kids to MS and will surely help to promote MS in the future too!

Hi teacher this is Quintus. I just finished my math PSLE. This year's paper was easier than 2021 PSLE so I think I can score AL 3 or above. Just wanted to thank you for everything you have done for me.

I would like to take this opportunity to express my heartfelt thanks to Mr Yan who has been teaching my son Math (high achiever) at your Clementi branch centre. My son had relate, he is patience, experience and dedicate to each of his classmates including himself during each lesson. Mr Yan was also able to spot questions ahead of his recent SA1 exam. He would also make conscious efforts to update me after each lesson on my son’s progress. Would highly recommend Mr Yan to my friends who are in need of looking for a good Math teacher.

Parent of Wah Wen Hu Addison
In addition, my Mindstretcher maths teacher always believed in me and she knew that I was capable of getting good score in mathematics. However I was weak in maths. Once again with my determination and my Mind Stretcher teacher's support, I scored AL2 in mathematics in PSLE.

I am really happy to be Teacher Shannel's student as she had helped me to improve my Maths. I was struggling in Maths before I became her student. Teacher Shannel always explains the questions in a way that makes them easy to understand. I got 21 out of 25 for my test and all these became possible after attending her lessons! I really hope that she can remain as my teacher year after year!

Mrs Foo is very dedicated towards her students. She will frequently update me on my daughter’s progress in P4 Maths. I like her being stern in class and is able to push my child to finish her work on time. Thank you very much! 😊👍🏻👏🏻

Parent of Megan Wong Yan Yun
Mind Stretcher challenges our capability, which deepens our knowledge. One example is Cranium Cracker in Math. After solving Mind Stretcher worksheets, I always find it easier to solve any Math problems. Power Code in Math helped me to solve all the Math questions faster and helped me not to struggle with time during the Exam.
