Invictus School in Hong Kong is an inclusive, private co-educational international school, offering high quality and affordable all-through international education from Kindergarten 1 to Year 13. Open to both local and expatriate families, our conveniently located campuses for the bilingual kindergarten and primary school are in Tseung Kwan O, and our English medium secondary school is located in Chai Wan.
Invictus School’s Mathematics curriculum is supplemented with the Singapore Ministry of Education Mathematics Framework, which is renowned worldwide for its comprehensive programme and used in many schools internationally. It aims to equip students with a level of mastery of mathematics that will serve them well in life while enabling them to pursue the subject at the highest levels if they have the interest and aptitude.
The Singapore Mathematics curriculum uniquely features a spiral design where topics are revisited and extended. At the small and tight circle of the spiral, a new mathematical topic is introduced. When a student progresses to the next level of the spiral, they revisit the topic and are introduced to related concepts that are more difficult.
The curriculum is also based on the Concrete Pictorial Abstract (CPA) approach which posits that people learn in three stages: through real objects, pictures and then symbols such as plus and minus signs. The CPA is well known for modelling mathematical problems with visual aids to build an understanding of concepts such as fractions, ratios and algebraic reasoning in a systematic way.
The Mathematics curriculum at Invictus helps students learn concepts at a relational level rather than as a set of rules. This helps ensure that they are equipped to build the increasingly complex skills that they need in the modern world, where the pace of scientific discovery and innovation is accelerating internationally.
Our teachers come with an extensive background in teaching in multicultural classrooms and understand the challenges expat children may experience.
