“Mathematics is the music of reason,” said mathematician James Joseph Sylvester. We believe a basic understanding of mathematics and statistics, and the ability to think mathematically and statistically, are essential for an educated and informed people. H1 Mathematics provides students with a foundation in mathematics and statistics that will support their business or social sciences studies at the university. H2 Mathematics is designed to prepare students for a range of university courses, including mathematics, sciences, engineering and related courses, where a good foundation in mathematics is required.
Our Mathematics curriculum will lead students to acquire mathematical concepts and skills to support their tertiary studies in the various fields. It will lead them to develop thinking, reasoning, communication and modelling skills through a mathematical approach to problem-solving. They will be taught to connect ideas within mathematics and apply mathematics in various disciplines. They will be guided to experience and appreciate the value of mathematics in life.
Students have the opportunities to take part in a wide variety of competitions from world-wide competitions such as the Australian Mathematics Competition and the American Mathematics Competition, to local competitions such as the Singapore Mathematics Olympiad, Singapore Statistical Poster Competition, the Designing with TI Graphing Calculators competition and interest-based competitions such as the Rubik’s Cube Competition.
