3. In driving Mathematics literacies, the Maths Department spearheaded a Young Mathematicians Programme to better customise the syllabus to the students with diverse needs. This programme looks at the learning gaps in our P2 children and customises resources and pedagogical approaches to better build capacity in Maths. In a bid to enthuse children in Maths, the department also initiated the Maths Carnival and set up various booths with Math games for children to compete in solving math problems/ puzzles in a fun and engaging way.
