To inculcate positive attitudes towards the learning of Mathematics and cultivate analytical and logical thinking for problem-solving.
To nurture logical, critical and independent problem-solvers.
Targeted at the lower primary levels, Learning Support for Mathematics (LSM) is an early intervention effort aimed at providing additional support to students who do not have foundational numeracy skills and knowledge to access the Primary 1 Maths curriculum. Identified students will be supported by a LSM Teacher for 4–8 periods a week through activity-based lessons focusing on small successes to build on their motivation.
For the middle primary levels, the Improving Confidence and Achievement in Numeracy (ICAN) programme is a collaboration between schools and MOE to support low progress learners students using intervention strategies and models that are guided by research to tackle the 4 key issues of learning gaps, language, motivation and memory. The lessons follow the FREMC structure – Factual Fluency, Readiness, Engagement, Mastery and Consolidation.
