Vision   Appreciate the beauty of Mathematics; Enjoy the process of Problem-Solving
MissionTo foster Mee Tohian's interest in Mathematics and develop their ability in problem-solving
GoalsThe Mathematics Department aims to
  • stimulate and cultivate creative and critical problem-solving skills within our students
  • cultivate, enhance and sustain interest in our students in the learning of Mathematics
  • develop and nurture our students to be confident, self-directed and resilient life-long learners
 Key Programmes
Fun with Mathematics through Activity Based Lessons (ABL) 
In Mee Toh School, we design learning experiences to develop students' interest and appreciation for Mathematics. Students have fun with Mathematics through activity-based learning that engage them in 'learning by doing' and help them to develop conceptual understanding through the Concrete-Pictorial-Abstract approach.

The activity-based learning approach provides students with the opportunities to
  • explore and construct meaning in their learning to uncover abstract mathematical concepts

  • develop collaborative and communication skills

  • develop social-emotional learning through group work

Heuristics Package: Progressive Learning
This progressive learning package is designed to equip our students with a wider repertoire of heuristics and thinking skills that are essential to tackle a variety of problems, including open-ended and real world problems.

Learning Support for Mathematics (LSM)

The Learning Support for Mathematics is a programme initiated by the Ministry of Education. It is designed to provide additional support for Primary One and Two students with weak foundational numeracy skills and knowledge. Lessons are conducted in small-sized groups so that teachers can provide more customised lessons for the students.


With the belief that all students can learn mathematics, teachers help their students by ensuring that they experience success in learning mathematics.


Partnering Parents
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.
