 About Us

The team believes that every child can do Mathematics and that a strong foundation in the subject will serve them well in the future. We support the teaching and learning of the secondary mathematics curriculum and seek to develop students’ cognitive and metacognitive skills and concepts as well as to allow them to appreciate the beauty and relevance of Mathematics in the real world.

We support all our students in the learning of Mathematics especially for those who require more guidance. At the same time, we strive to stretch students who have a higher aptitude for the subject so that they can pursue a course at the highest possible level in this discipline in the future.


AISS offers a comprehensive Mathematics Programme catering to different abilities.

    1. Students in the Express Stream will offer a 4-year O-Level Elementary Mathematics Programme which prepares them for the GCE O- Level Examination. These students will be given the option to offer O-Level Additional Mathematics when they progress into Secondary Three. The O-Level Additional Mathematics Programme is a 2-year programme leading to the GCE O-Level Examination.
    2. Students in the Normal (Academic) Stream will offer a 4-year N-Level Elementary Mathematics (A) Programme leading to the GCE N-Level Examination. Students who continue their Secondary 5 will join the O-Level Programme. To allow our students to realise their potential to the fullest, mathematically-inclined students in the Normal (Academic) Stream may be invited to offer the O-Level Elementary Mathematics Programme which allows them to sit for the subject at O-Level at Secondary 4. 
    3. Students in the Normal (Technical) Stream will offer a 4-year N-Level Elementary Mathematics (T) Programme leading to the GCE ‘N'-Level Examination.
Besides curriculum programmes, students also have the opportunity to participate in Mathematics Enrichment Programmes which stimulate their interest in learning the subject. These are hands-on out-of-classroom events that allow our students to apply their Mathematics knowledge in real-life situations.


Mathematical Modelling

Through the mathematical modelling activities, our lower secondary students had the opportunities to apply mathematical problem solving and reasoning skills to solve a variety of real-world problems beyond the textbooks. While instilling a joy of learning in mathematics, the activities supported the development of 21st century competencies and allowed development of better appreciation of mathematics.

AI Mathemazing Race

In October 2018, our Secondary Three students participated in our very own AI Mathemazing Race where they had to put their mathematical skills to the test!

The AI Mathemazing Race was a great success as students applied their mathematical concepts in a supportive team environment. Our students also acquired soft skills such as seeing peers’ perspectives and internalising group and communication skills.

Improving Confidence & Achievement in Numeracy (ICAN) Project 

The ICAN Project was started by HQ in 2013 and AI came on board the project in 2015. We believe that it is important for students to score a pass in Mathematics as failure limits post-secondary options and affects future employability. Thus, early and timely intervention is needed. The target students are our 1 NT and 3 NT students who are likely to have experienced little success in the learning of Mathematics at the primary levels. The purpose of embarking in this project is to raise the confidence and improve Math achievement of NT students. At the same time, teachers of these students are equipped with the knowledge, skills and resources to support their students in the learning of Mathematics. The end of year results for the students in this project is encouraging as we see an overall higher percentage of passes and overall lower MSG achieved. The teachers involved in this project also expressed satisfaction in being able to learn new skills and techniques from external mentors. This year has borne the fruits of our labour and we hope to continue the trajectory of our progress. 

Competition and Achievement

C. B. Paul Science Quiz 2019


Four of our students participated in the 41st International C. B. Paul Science Quiz 2019. An annual competition organised by the Anglo-Chinese Junior College in collaboration with the Nanyang Technological University and the National University of Singapore. The competition challenges our students in the areas of Mathematics, Physics, Chemistry, Biology and Computer Science.

The students are self-directed and independent learners who went beyond the school syllabus to prepare for the quiz.

Their determination and perseverance paid off, with Ang Tien Wen from 4E4 achievinging the Silver Award and Tan Hong Zhang from 4E4 has achieving the Bronze Award. Congratulations to them!

American Mathematics Competition

The American Mathematics Competitions (AMC) program, organised by the Mathematical Association of America (MAA), leads the nation in strengthening the mathematical capabilities of the next generation of problem-solvers.
A total of 29 Secondary Four students participated in the AMC in 2017. This competition has certainly sharpened our students’ problem solving skills and developed their appreciation for mathematics.

Singapore Mathematical Olympiad (SMO)

The Singapore Mathematical Olympiad (SMO) organised and held yearly by the Singapore Mathematical Society, is the largest and oldest mathematics competition in Singapore.

For the past two years, our students have made us proud by obtaining Silver, Bronze and Honourable Mention awards for the SMO! Well done, AI!
