Fuhuanites: Problem Solvers for the 21st Century
To nurture Fuhuanites who are able to think practically, critically and systematically
The approach to the teaching and learning of Mathematics involves:
Engaging students with problems in a real-world context, with a focus on
Inculcating in students the heuristics for solving problems as well as
metacognition to reflect on their solutions; and
Cultivating in students the ability to think algorithmically and explain
福 HUAT! Financial Literacy Programme is a signature programme to teach students more about (A) Practical Personal Finance to help them plan for the future and introduce concepts centred on (B) Social Entrepreneurship to engage students in finding business solutions to serve the community at large.
(A) Practical Personal FinanceStudents are walked through financial literacy modules on topics ranging from Income Tax, HDB Home Loans to GST. Secondary 3 students also participate in a Total Defence Trail in Marina Bay Financial District where they solve real-world mathematical problems infused with National Education messages.(B) Social EntrepreneurshipSocial Entrepreneurship focuses on learning from practices of successful social enterprises, and designing business solutions that tackle real-world problems. Platforms include the Social Innovation Relay workshop and Young Technopreneur Challenge
Infinity+ aims to develop problem solving heuristics. Identified students attend pull-out classes to widen their repertoire of mathematical concepts (e.g. Number Theory, Permutation and Combination, etc.). Since 2017, a youtube channel, https://www.youtube.com/c/chenhongming, has been set up to support the learning of advanced topics while keeping the face-to-face lectures to revolve around Polya's problem solving techniques (E.g. Thinking backwards, Looking for a pattern, Considering special cases, etc.).
