The Mathematics Department aims for Hillgrovians to acquire a good foundation in Mathematics knowledge and skills, develop mathematical thinking and problem solving skills so they can apply them in their everyday life. The abilities to reason logically, communicate mathematically and learn collaboratively and independently are core to the delivery of our programmes to students. AfL, ICT and manipulatives are used to enhance students’ understanding and develop Mathematical skills and proficiencies. The department also created an easy structured thinking routine (3Cs: Comprehend & Spot, Connect & Strategise, Check & Sense) to guide students in solving non-routine and real-world problems. Students are exposed to stretch programmes such as Math Olympiad and All Secondary Math Competition, as well as opportunities to learn beyond the classroom such as Math Trail and projects.
