Vision

Every Fairsian a passionate learner and a determined problem solver.

At FMS(P), we focus on developing students’ problem solving skills in a fun and meaningful way. The department programmes follow closely to the direction set by MOE. The programmes enable students to:

  • acquire and apply mathematical concepts and skills for everyday use and continuous learning in mathematics
  • develop thinking, reasoning, communication, application and metacognitive skills through a mathematical approach to problem solving;
  • build confidence and foster interest in mathematics.

Programme and Highlights

Every Fairsian, from Primary 1 to 6, is engaged in the learning of Mathematics through a myriad of hands-on activities and real-life problem-solving scenarios. Take a nostalgic walk down memory lane as you read about some highlights of Mathematics@Fairfield in 2020:
