|Vision||Explore Creative Problem Solving|
At Mee Toh School, we envision our students to be adept in translating Mathematics knowledge and skills into creative and critical problem solving and exploring varied ways to solve problems. Via this journey, we seek to develop our students holistically to be confident and significant contributors to the society in small and big ways.
|Mission||Enhance students Mathematical Concepts and Skills for application in problem solving|
We strive to develop in our students
|Goals||The Mathematics Department aims to|
|Activity Based Lessons (ABL) |
This approach is put in place to provide a platform for our students to experience early successes in their learning, strengthen their basic conceptual understandings so that their learning can progress steadily throughout the six years in primary school.
STARtUP - Start Understanding and Planning for Problem Solving
Adapated from Dr Lee Ngan Hoe's Problem Wheel, STARtUP is a teaching strategy developed by our teachers to help students when they are stuck in solving Mathematics problems. STARtUP, a schema introduced to develop meta cognition in our students- to improve their ability to control their thinking processes, in particular the selection and use of problem-solving strategies in problem solving. With the schema in mind, the students will persevere in problem solving and attempt to comprehend the given information, visual relationships, tap on their conceptual and procedural knowledge, and devise a solution plan before executing mathematical calculations.
Heuristics Package: Progressive Learning
This progressive learning package is designed to equip our pupils with wider repertoire of heuristics or skills necessary to solve Mathematics problems and expand their problem solving capabilities.
Learning Support for Mathematics (LSM)
This MOE initiative is designed to support Primary 1 and 2 students with difficulties in coping with the demands of the subject. Lessons are conducted after school in small-sized groups. Each session is targeted to help the learner to master mathematical concepts.
Teacher Professional Development
Our teachers actively engage in conversations to look into best practices in the teaching and learning of Mathematics. These weekly sharing sessions aim to deepen pedagogical knowledge of teachers and to enhance the way Mathematics is taught and learnt.
Parents are important partners in the learning of the students. The department shares insights into the learning of Mathematics with our parents through school-organised workshops and briefings to deepen the understanding of how children learn Mathematics.
