mathematics and related disciplines, and for applications to the real world
• develop the necessary process skills for the acquisition and application of mathematical
concepts and skills
develop the mathematical thinking and problem solving skills and apply these skills to
formulate and solve problems
recognise and use connections among mathematical ideas, and between mathematics
and other disciplines
develop positive attitudes towards mathematics
make effective use of a variety of mathematical tools (including information and
communication technology tools) in the learning and application of mathematics
produce imaginative and creative work arising from mathematical ideas
• develop the abilities to reason logically, to communicate mathematically, and to learn
cooperatively and independently

    Hi I’m a parent who has some queries regarding A Math.
    I was hoping, based on your expertise, that you can clarify my doubts.
    I understand from SEAB website that there is a new A Math syllabus (4047).
    Is this for students starting A Math in 2014? And any difference from the old syllabus (4038)?

    Appreciate it, thank you.
