O Level - Elementary Mathematics Syllabus

Taken from:
MOE 2021 Elementary Maths Syllabus 4048

The Elementary Math syllabus being used in our math tuition centre in Singapore is intended to provide students with the fundamental mathematical knowledge and skills. The content is organised into three strands namely, Number and Algebra, Geometry and Measurement, and Statistics and Probability. Besides conceptual understanding and skills proficiency explicated in the content strands, development of process skills that are involved in the process of acquiring and applying mathematical knowledge is also emphasised. These include reasoning, communication and connections, thinking skills and heuristics, and application and modelling; and are developed based on the three content strands.
