As the educational landscape shifts towards equipping students with future-ready skills, the Jurongville Mathematics department embraces the R3EAL curriculum by infusing real, relevant, rigorous, experiential, and authentic learning into everyday lessons.  Proficiency in Mathematics will support the students’ learning of other subjects. Thus, through various strategies and programmes, the department hopes to build confidence and foster interest in the students, teaching them to appreciate the value of the subject.

Every JVS student would begin their Math journey experiencing the use of Math in an authentic setting during the annual Mathematics Trail around the school.  The Secondary 1 Maths teachers would design a series of mathematical tasks around the school campus, giving students the chance to apply their skills and knowledge in practical situations. They also got to bond with their classmates and familiarise themselves with the new school environment.

In terms of developing students’ higher-order thinking skills and promote a passion for learning, the department encourages students to participate in various national and international maths competitions. The Secondary 1 Express students participated in the Australian Mathematics Competition, while the Secondary 2 Express students took part in the Singapore Math Kangaroo Contest. The Secondary 3 Express students joined the Singapore and Asian Schools Math Olympiad, the Secondary 4 Express students were involved in Ngee Ann Polytechnic’s Maths Challenge, and the Normal (Academic) and Normal (Technical) students participated in the All Singapore Secondary Mathematics Competition for Normal Course. Not only did they enjoy these learning opportunities, they also did the school proud with their commendable results.
