Our Primary Mathematics programme moulds our students into efficient and effective problem solvers of mathematical problems in both school examinations and everyday life.
Not only does this programme help our students to effectively tackle and ace their Mathematics examinations in school and the PSLE, it also develops critical thinking, in-depth analysis and logical reasoning skills. More than just formulae and solutions, we encourage our students to investigate the mental processes required to solve mathematical problems through numerous heuristic approaches.
One of the key techniques that we will equip our students with is our MS Power Codes. They are a series of effective problem-solving strategies and heuristics unique to Mind Stretcher used to solve commonly-tested exam questions. These strategies are coded in an ingenious way to enable students to remember for easy retrieval to assist them to solve various problem sums. These codes will be taught to students in a guided and meaningful manner so that students can relate to specific type of Maths questions.
In order to ensure that students are equipped with problem solving skills, our teachers will:
Topical revisions, revision papers will be provided to ensure the following:
High achievers and GEP students will be exposed to more advanced and higher-order mathematical scenarios which will challenge and stretch their problem-solving abilities to the limit. Activities such as cranium crackers will be used to stimulate the student’s mind. These entails the following:
