Subject Mastery
(Every student, a successful individual)
Designed lessons to allow our students to achieve a deep understanding of the basic Mathematical concepts;

We incorporate suitable learning experiences in teaching concepts, making Mathematics relevant by relating to real-life;

design self-directed learning programmes for students to learn at their own pace and to take responsibility in their own learning.

infuse thinking skills (Analyzing, Generalization, deducing) and problem solving skills into our teaching to develop our students to be confident problem solvers.
(Going beyond)
We extend our students’ learning by exposing them to higher order thinking and non-routine questions.

We provide opportunities for all students to represent Y.I. in external competitions.

We also provide opportunities to develop our students to become confident problem solvers and also critical thinkers.
(A thirst for in-depth)
Maths Talent Programme

This is a 3 years programme to stretch the potential of the high-ability students in the area of Mathematics. They will be trained weekly by our teachers beyond curriculum time.

In addition, students will represent our school to take part in the Singapore Mathematical Olympiad (SMO) and Australian Mathematics Competition (AMC). Students will also have the opportunity to go on a local/overseas learning journey to enrich their learning experience. (in the midst of seeking collaboration with higher institutions)
