Main Pedagogy/Teaching Strategies
C-P-A Approach

C-P-A stands for Concrete, Pictorial and Abstract. Concrete components include manipulatives like fraction discs, linking cubes etc. are used to solve the problems. Pictorial representatives include drawings, graphs or diagrams which students read and interpret the information. Abstract refers to symbolic representations such as numbers and letters.
C-P-A approach is to cater to students of diverse learning styles eg. visual, kinesthetic. Using CPA approach, all students especially those with difficulties in Mathematics will be able to process the new learning or concepts in a gradual progression from 3D to 2D objects and finally to symbols where they have experienced Mathematics in various forms.

Key Programmes

Learning Support for Mathematics (LSM)
Learning Support for Mathematics (LSM) is a resource-based support aimed at providing intervention for some Primary 1 students who need help in basic numeracy skills. Students are identified through a screening test at the beginning of Term 1.
LSM is implemented in Poi Ching School since January 2007. A trained LSM teacher conducts the lessons in a fun and engaging manner to motivate LSM students to gain confidence in the subject of Mathematics.
Financial Literacy
Financial Literacy is an entrepreneurship training which aims to prepare all students to be financially savvy and responsible leaders. Students are equipped with the basic tools, knowledge and values on financial management. Students will experience in exercising judgment, risk evaluation and real-world problem solving. A platform will be provided at P6 for students to ideate, design and display their entrepreneur skills and teamwork in planning and managing the fund raising activity.
Excellence 2000 (E2K) Mathematics Programme
E2K is an inquiry-based programme which targeting at P4 to P6 high-ability students. It is first implemented in 2015, mainly focusing at P4 high-ability students. It aims to develop the skills like Mathematical Thinking, Mathematical Communication and Collaboration Skills. The level of depth and difficulty builds up each unit progress. Story, games and puzzles are used to engage the students in problem solving.
Mathematics Olympiad Training Programme
This programme provides the students with an opportunity to stimulate logical and creative thinking and also develop higher order problem solving skills. P4 to P6 students who have interests and are strong in Mathematics will be invited to participate. It also helps to prepare the students for various Mathematics Olympiad competitions.
Mathematics Ambassadors at Work!
The Maths’ Ambassadors were selected based on their ability to interact with students who utilised the Mathematics corner‘s activities during recess. Their role is to act as a buddy and infuse Mathematical strategies to make learning fun.

Accolades

Primary Math Project Competition 2015
Yeo Wen Shao of 5C(2015) had done our school proud by clinching the Outstanding Award for P5 Game Design Category in The Primary Mathematics Project Competition 2015. The award ceremony was held at NUSHS Auditorium last Saturday (29/8/2015).
The Primary Mathematics Project Competition is jointly organised by the Gifted Education Branch and the National University of Singapore High School of Math and Science (NUS High School).
The objectives of the competition are to encourage pupils to carry out innovative and creative work in mathematics.  The project should be based on the theme of “Mathematics is fun”. Pupils should showcase how they apply their mathematical knowledge in designing their games.
