Our SMART Progammes have been designed and fine-tuned based on real environment, observations, quantifiable impact research, and learning psychology, hence robust and highly-effective. It comprises four standalone but complementary modules delivered through specific learning paths for Pre-School, Primary & Secondary.
Beyond teaching students all-important Mathematics, Science concepts and skills, our customized programmes help them build number sense by showing them just how numbers work. Students can underperform in Mathematics/Science because they find it boring or they can’t remember all the rules, concepts and format required to answer science questions.
The Singapore method, which SMART English, Mathematics, Science and Malay adapt, of the teaching develops pupils’ study ability and confidence without having to resort to memorizing procedures to pass tests – making subjects more engaging and interesting.
Small class sizes (8 students max) ensure that students receive personalized attention from our committed teachers.
At the end of each session (primary 1 & 2), parents will be invited for a lesson debrief so that parents will be kept up to speed on what was taught and how they can further aid their children at home.
At SMART EXCEL, our teachers do not merely write the solutions on the board! We bring our students through the whole thinking process, step-by-step so that they will understand the mathematical concepts behind the questions so that they can to apply to other similar questions across topics.
The central focus of the framework is mathematical problem-solving. The five inter-related components of the framework are integral parts of mathematics learning and problem-solving.
Metacognition, or “thinking about thinking”, refers to the awareness of, and the ability to control one’s thinking processes, in particular, the selection and use of problem-solving strategies.
Mathematical skills include procedural skills for numerical calculation, algebraic manipulation, spatial visualization, data analysis, measurement, use of mathematical tools, and estimation.
Mathematical processes refer to the skills involved to acquire and apply mathematical knowledge. This includes reasoning, communication, thinking skills and heuristics, and application and modeling.
Attitudes refer to the affective aspects of mathematics learning such as:
Mathematical concepts cover numerical, algebraic, geometrical, statistical, probabilistic, and analytical concepts. Students should develop the mathematics ideas in depth and as an integrated whole.
