The Ministry of Education (MOE) has designed the primary maths syllabus in such a way as to lay a solid mathematical foundation that the children need to know from primary 1 to primary 6. The concept ranges from simple addition to algebra. The primary school maths syllabus is structured evenly and appropriately for all levels. This helps the children to learn Singapore maths gradually. The syllabus focuses on three crucial areas.

- Number and algebra
- Measurement and geometry
- Statistics

Note: Students will be introduced to algebra only in the primary 3.

## Primary 1 or P1 Math Syllabus

The P1 math syllabus is designed in such a way that the students will be introduced to the starting point or foundation of each math category. Under number, the category includes the following.

- Counting from 1 to 100
- Counting money
- Introduction for maths symbols from addition to division

The other maths concept, the “Measurement and Geometry” category, includes:

- Measuring length using centimetres (cm)
- Identifying the time
- Introduction to 2D shapes from squares to quarter circles

Finally, the concept of “Statistics” includes:

- Reading and understanding picture graphs
