The Mathematics Department at Light International School (LIS) has a huge responsibility to ensure students enjoy their experiences in the subject and go on to do well in it in their examinations. Mathematics is a core subject at LIS.
Mathematics teachers take this responsibility with admirable enthusiasm, great passion and dedication to serve with distinction.
The department has a wealth of relevant materials and other academic resources at the teachers’ and students’ disposal. We offer IGCSE mathematics (Core and Extended), Advanced Subsidiary (Pure Mathematics 1 and Statistics 1) and Advanced Level (Pure Mathematics 3 and Mechanics 1).
Teachers in the department do extensive research to arm themselves with an arsenal of relevant skills and knowledge for the benefit of the students. We also keep abreast with all the changes in the different components offered in Mathematics, Statistics and Mechanics.
All mathematics classrooms are equipped with smart boards that enable a highly interactive approach to the teaching/learning experiences. We thus make extensive use of the immense online resources on the internet as well as other Microsoft applications such PowerPoint presentations.
We pay close attention to our students’ individual challenges and indeed organize sessions in which weaker learners’ difficulties in the subject are dealt with.
