In Jurong Pioneer Junior College, we offer four Mathematics syllabuses to cater to the different needs, interests, and abilities of students:
- H1 Mathematics
- H2 Mathematics
- H2 Further Mathematics; and
- H3 Mathematics
H1 Mathematics (Syllabus 8865)
H1 Mathematics is designed to provide students with a foundation in mathematics and statistics that will support their business or social sciences studies at the university. It is particularly appropriate for students without an Additional Mathematics background because it offers an opportunity for them to learn important mathematical concepts and skills in algebra and calculus that are covered in Additional Mathematics. Students will also learn basic statistical methods that are necessary for studies in business and social sciences.
Assumed knowledge: O-Level Mathematics
H2 Mathematics (Syllabus 9758)
H2 Mathematics is designed to prepare students for a range of university courses, including mathematics, sciences and related courses, including engineering, where a good foundation in mathematics is required. It develops mathematical thinking and reasoning skills that are essential for further learning of mathematics. Through the applications of mathematics, students also develop an appreciation of mathematics and its connections to other disciplines and to the real world.
Assumed knowledge: O-Level Additional Mathematics
H2 Further Mathematics (Syllabus 9649)
H2 Further Mathematics is designed for students who are mathematically-inclined and who wish to further expand and deepen their knowledge of mathematics and its applications. Students will develop advanced mathematical thinking and reasoning skills and learn a wider range of mathematical methods and tools. This will give a head-start to students who plan to study mathematics or mathematics-related university courses such as science and engineering in the form of a stronger and richer foundation in mathematics.
H2 Further Mathematics is to be offered with H2 Mathematics as a double mathematics course.
J1 students who wish to offer H2 Further Mathematics would need to pass the college’s selection test.
H3 Mathematics (Syllabus 9820)
H3 Mathematics is offered to J2 students with the passion and strong ability in mathematics. It aims to engage students who are keen to specialise in mathematics, in solving more challenging problems in mathematics and proving mathematical results. Students will learn useful techniques and results, related to the content in H2 Mathematics, to solve mathematical problems and prove mathematical statements. In the course of learning, students will develop an understanding of the rigour of mathematics and mathematical proof and a deeper insight into the practice, value and beauty of mathematics.
Pre-requisite: H2 Mathematics
