Why Doing Well In Math Is Important
Maths is a very important subject for students in Singapore. It is a compulsory subject that students have to take from primary school all the way to the A-levels. In fact, doing well in mathematics is often a prerequisite for many of the popular courses in University, such as engineering.
Maths is also extremely useful in real life applications, such as when we pay for something and make sure we get the right amount of change back. In the professional world, complex mathematics algorithms are also used daily in the banking, engineering and accounting sectors.
Singapore students are often ranked near the top of world rankings for mathematics, this is due in part to the advanced mathematics curriculum of the Ministry of Education. There has been a steady increase in the number of topics covered by the Mathematics curriculum, moreover each topic is taught in greater depth and difficulty.
At The Maths Lab, we strive to make mathematics a useful and interesting subject through the use of visual aids, to show how mathematics can solve real-life problems. We find that when students realize the importance of mathematics, they are inclined to take it seriously, and ultimately perform better in the subject.
