OUR Mission


Mathematics education in Fuhua aims to promote Problem Solving for the 21st Century. 

This involves: 
(a) Inculcating mathematical literacy; 
(b) Developing problem solving heuristics; and 
(c) Building foundation for Math-related further education.

OUR Beliefs

  1. Mathematical Literacy refers to the practical ability to apply basic mathematical concepts in our everyday life. We believe that in the 21st Century, students will need the ability to make everyday decisions that will require a judicious sense of financial acumen in an increasingly connected global environment. This acumen would stem from their mathematical understanding of estimation, percentages & statistics in a real-world context. 
  2. Problem Solving Heuristics refer to the mental processes for creatively simplifying complicated problems into manageable chunks before tackling them. We believe that in the 21st Century, students will face complex problems that will test one's ability to think critically and inventively. 
  3. A Foundation for Higher Education refers to the mathematical concepts needed for students to pursue an academic or vocational future in fields related to Mathematics. Engineering is a critical field in Singapore that spans mechanical, aeronautical, electrical, civil, bio-medical, maritime and systems. We believe that Additional Mathematics prepares students for a career in these fields as well as the pursuit of pure science. 

OUR Signature Programmes

Programme NameDetails
Financial Literacy Programme

The Financial Literacy Programme is the department’s signature programme that uses finance-related contexts to: (a) highlight the relevance of Mathematics in the real world; (b) inculcate in students the social emotional competency of responsible decision making; and (c) transmit vital general knowledge of money matters in Singapore (Eg. GST, HDB, COE, Income Tax etc). This is done via ICT-enabled home-based learning packages and through a partnership with Junior Achievement (since 2013) to bring in industry experts (Eg. Exxon Mobil, Standard Chartered etc) to teach personal finance and business finance.

Talent Development Programme

The ACE@Fuhua framework seeks to develop T-shaped Fuhuanites with both breadth and depth of learning. With the department’s talent development programme, Infinity Plus, the department aims to: (a) introduce problem-solving heuristics to all students; and (b) identify and stretch high-ability students through selected competition platforms.

Within Infinity Plus, the department has identified key competition platforms. The training programme for each competition varies from cohort post-exam practice to customized training. The programme is anchored on Polya’s Problem-Solving Techniques as well as Mental Arithmetic.

Enriched Mathematics CurriculumAs the school takes in a good cohort of student every year, the math department offers students from all streams and levels an Enriched Curriculum to prepare all Fuhuanites for further studies in Math-related courses. This is done through:  
(i) Offering Additional Mathematics to all Express students as a cohort subject with cohort participation since 2011 (only 1 student has opted to drop Additional Mathematics in the last 4 years);

(ii) Applying Express standards to N(A) students through the use of Express textbooks as our N(A) students could be Express students in many schools; and 

(iii) Offering Cross-Stream mathematics to Normal Academic & Normal Technical Students (Varies from 4% to 25% of cohort).

Achievements

In Fuhua, we believe in nurturing T-shaped Fuhuanites with both breadth and depth of learning in Mathematics. Through our in-house talent development program, we select, train and expose our students to a variety of Math Competitions and once again, we have achieved outstanding results this year.

NKF Chinese Chess Competition

During the June Holidays in 2015, 3 of our students took part in the Charity Xiangqi Competition organised by the Kidney Dialysis Foundation. Xiangqi aka Chinese Chess is a 2 player strategy board game that trains logical thinking, hones carefulness and rewards the ability to make long calculated moves based on your opponents expected moves. This is a game that requires the ability to think under pressure. Although this is the first time that Fuhua took part in this competition, we managed to clinch 2nd and 6th position.

The students who have done us proud are:

Li Jun Xiang        1R4        2nd position
