P3 MATH OLYMPIAD Programme starts on 27 July

The P3 MATH OLYMPIAD PROGRAMME is a 10-session (each session 1.5 hrs, weekly) programme to introduce P3 students to techniques and skills involved in solving non-routine P3 Math questions. As some of these P3 Math Olympiad questions are also similar to the difficult math questions found in P5 or in the PSLE, the heuristics learnt in this course will be useful to these students in their later primary years.

It is widely agreed that some of the non-routine or difficult PSLE Math questions are very similar to Primary Math Olympiad questions. Thus to get an A-Star for PSLE Math it may be necessary to acquire some Primary Math Olympiad problem-solving skills. Hence we encourage ALL primary school students to attend some kind of math Olympiad training before they take their PSLE Math exam. Math Olympiad is not just for students who are currently doing well in Math; we believe it is for EVERY primary student.

Primary Math Olympiad skills may also be useful to students taking the GEP or DSA selection tests.

Level/Subject:  P3 MATH OLYMPIAD

Day:  Mondays

Time:  4 pm – 5.30 pm

Location:   Blk 644, Bukit Batok Central, #01-68. S(650644).

The objectives of the programme are as follows:

  1. To introduce students to heuristics commonly used in Primary Math Olympiad
  2. To give students confidence in solving non-routine or difficult Math problems.
  3. To train students to look at Math problems from multiple angles.
  4. To train students in analytical thinking and logical reasoning.
