ALEC’s Mathematics Tutorial Programme for years 11-13 provides more advanced and potentially more specialised mathematics training to our students. Students are exposed to a rigorous system of instruction and study that further enhance their knowledge and skills in Maths. Practical application of the subject is paramount, and the program aims to get students to appreciate how Maths concepts and theories give rise to advances in many fields of work and study. In recognition of the different specialised paths that students taking IB Diplomat Maths or A-Level Maths can choose, the Maths programme is flexible enough to cater specifically to the kind of Maths education the students prefer. In the IB Diploma programme, students have four Maths courses available to them; our programme then responds in kind. There are a number of routes for the A Levels as well, ranging from pure Maths to the introduction of probability and statistics. Students can also opt to study Maths application. Our programme is able to respond effectively to these differences as well. Regardless of which particular branch of Maths knowledge the student wishes to specialise in, we also help them along by guiding them to discover which specialisation fits them the best. Each specialisation is suitable for different kinds of learners with varying abilities and interests. Their choices are also influenced by their career and professional preferences later on. Through the tutor’s mentorship, the programme allows the students to discover more clearly where their skills and interests lie. The Mathematics Tutorial Programme for Years 11-13 can include the following:
- Pure Mathematics: Concepts and Theories
- Probability and Statistics
- Applied Mathematics
Variations in teaching methodology occur depending on the specific Maths course the student is enrolled in. More theoretical courses call for a lot of traditional teaching methods: lectures, problem solving exercises, drills, etc. If the student wishes to engage more in Maths application, then the tutor varies his methods accordingly. He includes the use of examples, projects, etc.
