The enriched GEP Maths curriculum is differentiated in terms of
(a) Level of complexity and connectivity
– Questions that require more steps of computations and/or linking of multiple concepts
(b) Depth of concepts
– Appreciating and deriving mathematical principles and formulae
– Some P5 mainstream topics are covered in P4 GEP
(d) Mathematical communication
– Showing working and explanations clearly
Below is the scheme of work for P4 GEP Mathematics, broken down by terms.
– Whole Numbers
– Factors & Multiples
– Tables & Graphs
Weighted Assessment 1: Investigative Task 1 (25 marks, 45 min, 5%)
Weighted Assessment 2: Common Test 1 (50 marks, 1 h 15 min, 15%)
– Perpendicular & Parallel Lines
– Angles, 8-Point Compass
– Symmetry & Tessellations
Weighted Assessment 3: Common Test 2 (50 marks, 1 h 15 min, 15%)
– Area & Perimeter
Weighted Assessment 4: Investigative Task 2 (25 marks, 45 min, 5%)
End of Year Examination (100 marks, 1 h 30 min, 60%)
Most of the topics in P4 GEP Maths overlap with the P4 mainstream Maths syllabus.
However, there are some concepts taught in P4 GEP Maths that are not covered in P4 mainstream Maths. They include:
– Divisibility test
– HCF & LCM
– Prime factorisation
– Mean, Median, Mode
– Properties of angles for transversals
Further, P4 GEP students have complete two Investigative Tasks which together comprise 10% of the Weighted Assessments for the year. This exercise tests students on deriving nth term formulae for mathematical progressions (which is useful for PSLE but not explicitly taught in the mainstream syllabus).
Unsure about how to help your child cope with the rigorous P4 GEP Mathematics syllabus?
Let our GEP alumnus teacher guide your child as they embark on their GEP journey!
Our GEP/Advanced Mathematics programme covers not only what students need to master for PSLE, but incorporates content covered in GEP schools to help GEP students ace their assessments throughout the year.
Download the programme booklet for our GEP/Advanced Mathematics programme to find out how our enriched curriculum, which ties in with the MOE GEP Mathematics scheme of work, is designed to help your P4 GEP child do well in school.
