YIJC provides students with options to learn mathematics at different levels and to varying breadth, depth or specialisation to support their progression to their choice of university courses.
H1 Mathematics provides students with a foundation in mathematics and statistics that will support business or social sciences studies at the university. It is particularly appropriate for students without an Additional Mathematics background. Assumed knowledge: O-level Mathematics.
H2 Mathematics prepares students for a range of university courses, including Mathematics, Sciences, Engineering and related courses. Students will develop mathematical thinking and reasoning skills, as well as an appreciation of mathematics and its connections to other disciplines and to the real world. Assumed knowledge: O-level Additional Mathematics.
H2 Further Mathematics is designed for mathematically-inclined students who wish to further expand and deepen their knowledge of mathematics and its applications. It offers a rich foundation for mathematics-related university courses. H2 Further Mathematics is to be offered with H2 Mathematics as a double mathematics course.
At YIJC, an active learning approach is adopted in the teaching and learning of Mathematics. Students think critically and work collaboratively in teams and there are varied formative assessments with prompt feedback to facilitate their learning. To nurture self-directed learners, the department also uses the flipped classroom approach for selected some topics.
lCT tools enhance students’ learning experience; for instance, GeoGebra and Desmos help students visualise mathematical concepts. Google classroom allows teachers to provide individualised feedback and to share resources, and independent learning modules in SLS complement lessons. The YIJC Mathematics Google site offers students access to a wide range of learning materials such as instructional videos, applets and quizzes.
To extend their learning beyond the syllabus, students are encouraged to participate in competitions such as the Singapore Mathematics Olympiad and Australian Mathematics Competition and in learning journeys to sites like the Changi Meteorological Station.
