Aims Of Mathematics Education In OLN

Mathematics Framework
The department’s framework is adapted from MOE’s Mathematics Framework. It shows the underlying principles of an effective mathematics programme. It sets the direction for teaching, learning and assessment of mathematics in OLN.
Key Programmes
Teaching Of Heuristics and Problem Solving
A schoolwide approach is adopted in the teaching of Heuristic and problemsolving skills.Teaching of Heuristic and problemsolving skills is done in a spiral manner where basic skills are taught in the Lower Primary (P1 to P3). As learning progresses, at the Upper Primary (P4 to P6), more details are introduced, while at the same time they are related to the basics which are

Mathematics In Modules Programme (M ^{2 }P)
The Mathematics in Modules Programme (M ^{2 }P) is a 2year programme that is specially designed to meet the learning needs of our P5 and P6 pupils. In M ^{2 }P, similar topics covered in both P5 and P6 restructured and taught as modules. The programme aims to make connections in pupils’ learning experiences when acquiring mathematical skills and concepts and thus, building their enduring understandings.M ^{2 }P At A Glance

Play & Learn Programme
The Department believes in helping pupils build strong foundation in Primary Maths through a structured P&L teaching sequence and supporting manipulative and materials based on the concretepictorialabstract (CPA) approach.With the CPA approach, pupils are first allowed to play with manipulatives which help them get a better feel of what they are learning. Pictorial representations are then used to illustrate the problem/concept in another manner for pupils to read and interpret. When pupils demonstrate readiness, they will be introduced the abstract representation such as numbers or letters.
