This is a unique programme jointly organised by the Singapore Mathematical Society and Add-venture Learning. It is intended for mathematically talented pupils in Primary 5, who have a very strong interest in mathematics. The main objective of the programme is to stimulate and develop pupils’ creative thinking and problem-solving abilities. It aims to make them ‘passionately curious’ about mathematics.

 

Rationale

The Singapore Mathematical Society (SMS) recognises that pupils with outstanding mathematical abilities continually perplex and challenge educators and parents. For a number of reasons, many talented pupils simply do not reach their potential.

SMS-TOP is committed to nurture, motivate, enrich and academically challenge the brightest pupils in our nation. It will serve this unique group of pupils by providing training programmes beyond what is offered in the classroom.
