## Math

Curriculum aim to provide students with a solid foundation for the learning of math at secondary level and beyond.

With the inquiry approach and interactive nature, students will be motivated and they will accept that science is relevant and interesting. The curriculum also challenges students to think creatively and critically.

IT shows students Internet resources they can access independently to further explore each topic.

## How we do it

Working with one of our Learning facilitators kids will be guided through the 3 step process to understand mathematical concepts

#### Concrete

In the concrete step, students engage in hands-on learning experiences using concrete objects such as chips, dice, or paper clips.

#### Pictorial

This is followed by drawing pictorial representations of mathematical concepts.

#### Abstract

Students then solve mathematical problems in an abstract way by using numbers and symbols.

### Singapore Math US Edition

Singapore Math US Edition is a teaching method based on the national mathematics curriculum used for kindergarten through sixth grade in Singapore. The term was originally coined in the United States to describe an approach, originally developed in Singapore, to teaching students to learn and master fewer mathematical concepts at greater detail as well as having them learn these concepts using a three-step learning process.

The three steps are: concrete, pictorial, and abstract. In the concrete step, students engage in hands-on learning experiences using concrete objects such as chips, dice, or paper clips. This is followed by drawing pictorial representations of mathematical concepts. Students then solve mathematical problems in an abstract way by using numbers and symbols.

###### Common Core Math Curriculum

The Common Core State Standards Initiative Is An Educational Initiative In The United States That Details What K–12 Students Should Know In English Language Arts And Mathematics At The End Of Each Grade. The Initiative Is Sponsored By The National Governors Association (NGA) And The Council Of Chief State School Officers (CCSSO) And Seeks To Establish Consistent Educational Standards Across The States As Well As Ensure That Students Graduating From High School Are Prepared To Enter Credit-Bearing Courses At Two- Or Four-Year College Programs Or To Enter The Workforce

The highlights for students are the five monthly contests, administered from November through March. Choose from two grade-appropriate divisions:

## Math Count Competition Preparation

Math Count empowers middle school students of all ability levels and backgrounds to reach their full potential in mathematics.

Mathematics competitions such as MATHCOUNTS are the extracurricular math programs with the widest participation. The most immediate value of these math contests is obvious – they pique students’ interest in mathematics and encourage them to value intellectual pursuits.

Math contests inspire them to become good at mathematics just like sports encourage physical fitness. Eventually, students put aside the games. By then, hopefully an interest in the underlying activity has developed.

The MATHCOUNTS Competition Series is a national program that provides students the opportunity to compete in live, in-person contests against and alongside their peers. Created in 1983, it is the longest-running MATHCOUNTS program and is open to all sixth-, seventh- and eighth-grade students.

## American Mathematics Competitions Preparation

AMC tests mathematical problem solving with arithmetic, algebra, counting, geometry, number theory, and probability, with far more cross-over between the subject areas than in nearly all classrooms Tests vary widely in difficulty. All three of the tests are designed such that no background in calculus, analysis, or any other higher mathematics is needed to take the exams.

Mathematics competitions such as the American Mathematics Competitions is another extracurricular math programs with the widest participation. The most immediate value of these math contests is obvious – they pique students’ interest in mathematics and encourage them to value intellectual pursuits. Kids love games, and many will turn just about any activity into a contest, or in other words, something to get good at. Math contests thus inspire them to become good at mathematics just like sports encourage physical fitness. Eventually, students put aside the games. By then, hopefully an interest in the underlying activity has developed.

The AMC 8 is a 25-question, 40-minute, multiple choice examinations in middle school mathematics designed to promote the development of problem-solving skills. AMC 10 — for students grades 10 and under. AMC 12 — for student’s grades 12 and under

## In order of increasing difficulty, AMC competitions are

The top students on the USAMO are invited to participate in the Mathematical Olympiad Summer Program, where students train for possible inclusion on the U.S. IMO team.
