The Mathematics department aims to provide a nurturing and diversified experience for students pursuing mathematics in the school through mathematical problem solving. Mathematics problem solving is central to mathematics learning. It involves the acquisition and application of mathematics concepts and skills in a wide range of situations, including non-routine, open-ended and real-world situations. Navalites are exposed to different Learning Experiences and given opportunities to do Math Modelling in their lessons. The development of mathematical problem solving ability is dependent on five inter-related components , namely Concepts, Skills, Processes, Attitudes and Metacognition. 


The Mathematics department constantly seeks out opportunities for students to be exposed to various competitions such as the Mathematics Trail organised by YJC, Arithmetic Competition and the Singapore Mathematical Olympiad. Navalites are exposed to mathematical problems that challenged them to think critically and out of the box to solve real life problems. While Navalites are engaged in learning, Mathematics teachers in Naval Base Secondary school are also going on journeys for continued professional development. A team of Mathematics teachers have shared their experiences in the N2 Mathematics Conference on Assessment Literacy.
