Our Philosophy

The CHS Mathematics Department aims to develop creative and effective problem solvers who reason and communicate logically.

Department’s Vision

An inquisitive gentleman with an analytical mind who appreciates mathematics theories and apply them in life

Department’s Mission

The department aims to develop students with positive attitude towards Mathematics and creative minds, who can reason and communicate logically to solve real-world problems.

Department Framework

The department stresses on building strong conceptual understanding, skills proficiency and positive attitudes. This is achieved by providing students the opportunity to learn through self-exploratory, mathematical discourse and independent learning. For example, students work independently and collaboratively to solve problems in authentic real-world setting. Presentations in class and other platforms allow students to use mathematical terms to communicate and reason logically. Students are also encouraged to think about their learning through alternative assessments such as journal writing.

Talent Development and Enrichment Programmes:

Mathematics Research – This programme challenges students intellectually with advanced mathematical concepts and provide opportunities for them to participate in mathematics research.

Mathematical Modelling – This programme allows students to use mathematics to solve real world problem.

Statistical Research – Students work collaboratively to conduct research based on their interest, use statistics to analyse their data and present their findings in a poster.

Mathematics Competitions – Competitions emphasised on problem solving, creativity and develop students’ interest in the learning of mathematics. Through some of these competitions, students can assesses their problem solving skills and mathematics knowledge. Some examples of competitions are Singapore Mathematics Olympiad, Australian Mathematics Competition, Singapore Statistics Poster competition and Singapore Math Project Festival.
