Students attending Ministry of Education’s (MOE) Primary Schools in Singapore follow a well-defined Mathematics syllabus. We provide a complementary tuition programme.

The learning journey can be divided into a Lower Block (Primary Three and Primary Four) and an Upper Block (Primary Five and Primary Six). The Lower Block introduces fundamental mathematical concepts and skills. It sets the basic foundation for subsequent learning.

Here is a simple overview.

 Primary Three Theme: Number and Algebra 1. Numbers up to 10,000 – count in 100s and 1000s – read and write in numbers and words – comparing and ordering numbers – number notation, representation and place values (number discs and number lines) – know what is 1, 10, 100, 1000 more/less than a 4-digit number – sequences in number patterns – rounding and approximations 2. Addition and Subtraction – up to 4 digits – mental calculation of two 2-digit numbers – solve up to 2-step word problems  – associate “sum” and “difference” with comparison models 3. Multiplication and Division – 6, 7, 8, 9 multiplication tables – radom X and ÷ within the multiplication tables, mentally – division with quotient and reminder – X and ÷ 3-digit numbers by 1-digit – family of X and ÷ facts – solve up to 2-step word problems, part-whole and comparison model drawing – identify languages for models, e.g. XX “times as many as” 4. Equivalent Fractions – express fraction in simplest form – compare and order unlike fractions with denominators less than 12 – writing the equivalent fraction given a numerator / denominator – represent fractions on a number line – illustrate fractions with part-whole models, fraction discs – make list of 1st 8 equivalent fractions and use list to compare 2 unlike fractions 5. Addition and Subtraction of Fractions – +, – two proper fractions with denominators ≤ 12 – explain two related fractions and their +, – with fraction discs Theme: Measurement and Geometry 1. Length, Mass and Volume – develop a sense of 1km and 1ml (e.g. dropper, cough syrup container, tea spoon)  – measure length in km and volume in ml – count in steps of 100ml to make 1l – unit conversion, m vs km, cm vs m, g vs kg, ml vs l – how to use measuring tools, e.g. measuring tape for length >1m, measuring scale for weight >1kg, measuring jars for volume >1l – word problems involving length, mass and volume 2. Time – read and tell time in hr and min on analog clock – develop sense of 1min duration, and what can be done in 1min, e.g. HR/min – know how to read common time-table, e.g. TV programme schedule, bus schedule, exam time-table – use “past” and “to” to tell time – convert hr and min to min only, and vice versa – find start time, finish time or duration given other two, know how to represent and visualise them on a timeline – word problems for time in hr and min 3. Area and Perimeter – understand the concept for both, e.g. using textbook area to measure Teacher’s table size – understand different rectangle shapes (area) can have same perimeter, and vice versa – visualise 1cm2 and 1m2 – measure area in cm2 and m2 – determine area of rectangles on square grids by counting and calculation – estimate areas of figures on grids with partial and complete squares – calculate area and perimeter of squares and rectangles 4. Angle – concept of angle and amount of turning – acute angle, obtuse angle and right angle 5. Perpendicular and Parallel Lines – identify them in 2-D figures – know how to check and determine these lines – construct using set squares and protractor, and on square grids Theme: Statistics 1. Bar graphs – read and interpret data from bar graphs – understand how to collect data, e.g. survey, and represent with a bar graph – use different scales on axis – read data to solve 1-step problems
