P4-P6 GEP MATHEMATICS

The GEP Mathematics programme at Joyous Learning is designed for GEP students or students who wish to undertake the study of Mathematics at a higher level.

In addition to the mainstream components that are assessed in the PSLE Mathematics paper, this programme also explores Investigative Maths, non-routine questions and fascinating related mathematical oncepts that will enrich students' study of mathematics.

Frequently Asked Questions

How is the GEP Mathematics programme different from the mainstream Mathematics programme?

 

In addition to covering the mainstream components that are tested in PSLE Mathematics, our GEP Mathematics programme covers components that are unique to the GEP Mathematics curriculum. Our stimulating questions are designed to fuel students’ interest in mathematics and get them to think deeply about the application of mathematical concepts.

 

My child is not in the GEP but is strong in Mathematics. Can he/she join this programme?

 

Yes. The rigorous and stimulating coursework is meant to stimulate the interests of Mathematics enthusiasts. Going beyond the PSLE syllabus, this programme will deepen a student’s appreciation of the utility and beauty of Mathematics.

 

Will homework be given after every lesson?

 

Our lessons are not planned with homework in mind. All exercises are to be completed by students and gone through by teachers within each two-hour session. Homework is only assigned when a student is unable to complete what is meant to be completed within the lesson.

 

What components are covered in the programme?

 

The programme covers every component that is tested in the PSLE Mathematics paper as well as components covered in the P4-P6 GEP Mathematics syllabus. We teach students formulae and methods that enable them to effectively solve challenging questions from GEP-specific topics.

 

Do you cover heuristics?

 

Yes, we do. In the context of Singapore mathematics, heuristics refer to strategies that are used to solve non-routine or complex questions. In addition to teaching various heuristics methods to solve different types of problems, our teachers encourage students to investigate think independently and come up with novel solutions on their own.
