The Mathematics Department aims to develop every Kent Ridgean as a confident and competent problem solver. We seek to provide windows of opportunities for students to plan, act, reflect and grow in their problem-solving competencies both during formal lessons as well as through enrichment programmes and alternative assessments such as:
|The Study Buddy Programme
|Our students opt in to this programme to gain more confidence in mathematical problem solving by engaging in online discussions with mentors from institutes of higher learning
|Our students seek challenges by participating in competitions at national level
|Our students exercise creativity in problem solving as they partake in alternative assessments focusing on application and integration of knowledge to address problems situated in real world context
Through the development of sound habits of mind, a strong foundation, a reflective mindset towards application and integration of learning and a focus on continual learning, our students persevere through their learning years in Kent Ridge to emerge a better problem solver with solutions to their future world.
