What O-Level math subjects do we teach?

We specialize in the following subjects for Secondary School:



Secondary School O-Level, Singapore-Cambridge GCE Ordinary Level

• Additional Mathematics (A-Math)

• Elementary Mathematics (E-Math)

What is taught in A-Math?

A-Math topics are organised into Algebra, Geometry, Trigonometry, and Calculus. These topics help to build a strong foundation in algebraic manipulation and mathematical reasoning which are crucial for H2 Math in JC and HL Math in IB. For a start, E-Math aims to build confidence and interest in the subject.  A-Math furthers the objective of an appreciation of the abstract nature and power of mathematics.

Going from lower secondary to upper secondary math, there is a considerable spike in difficulty. It is typical for students to fail their first few tests in Sec 3, and scoring F9 in the final exam is not unheard of. To understand the rigour of A-Math, contact us for a trial lesson. You can prepare for Sec 3 with A-Math tuition classes, one-to-one or in a small group.

Topic Group



• Quadratic functions

• Equations and inequalities

• Surds

• Polynomials and partial fractions

• Binomial expansions

• Exponential and logarithmic functions



• Trigonometric functions, identities and equations

• Coordinate geometry in two dimensions

• Proofs in plane geometry


• Differentiation

• Integration

• Kinematics

Is learning A-Math necessary?

A-Math as a subject requirement is a tricky business. We begin with facts: A-Math is not a compulsory O-level subject. It is also not a pre-requisite for all Polytechnic courses, but is required for some university courses when you apply with a diploma. For H2 Math in JC and HL Math in IB, A-Math is a pre-requisite.

In all the cases above, you can bypass the A-Math requirement by taking relevant qualifying tests. Ironically though, if you can pass the qualifying tests, you would have been better off taking A-Math at the onset.

It should be clear as day that A-Math affords wider options in tertiary education, even if not for the valuable knowledge in the subject itself. Students intent on applying to Polytechnics (all of which have no A-Math requirement) should be duly aware that A-Math may resurface as a pre-requisite in their university applications.

You might have been advised to focus on one subject (E-Math) rather than two (E-Math and A-Math). This wrongly assumes that every student will do better for E-Math, and we have seen counterexamples of students scoring higher for A-Math instead. It is delusional to believe that handling two math subjects is a walk in the park, but equally unwise to prematurely deny ourselves the flexibility of using two math subjects for L1R5 and ELR2B2.

Evidently, it takes expertise beyond the O-Level to give qualified advice. Acting on short-sighted hearsay, you may win the battle but lose the war. If you need help with your decision to take A-Math, contact us for a trial lesson.

Is A-Math difficult?

In terms of content, A-Math is more difficult than E-Math. The fact that E-Math is a pre-requisite for A-Math is indicative of the rigour.

Firstly, the A-Math syllabus assumes knowledge of E-Math. Topics such as Equations and Inequalities, Linear and Quadratic Functions, Indices and Exponential Functions, Trigonometry and Coordinate Geometry are common to both A-Math and E-Math. While Trigonometry is introduced in E-Math, it is restricted to acute and obtuse triangles. A-Math expands on the topic using the Unit Circle definition of Trigonometric functions, which rapidly scales up the difficulty. For Geometry, E-Math involves straightforward use of the Circle properties, but A-Math requires detailed proofs in Plane Geometry.

Vectors, Probability and Statistics are topics exclusive to E-Math, but Calculus (comprising Differentiation, Integration and Kinematics) is a major component of A-Math only. In comparison, modest algebraic skills will suffice for E-Math because it has a different focus on “Problems in Real-World Context” which include everyday life problems (travel, transportation, navigation), personal and household finance (simple and compound interest, instalments, utility bills, money exchange). On the other hand, A-Math necessitates a mastery of Algebra, which is the building block for Surds, Partial Fractions, Binomial Expansion, and Logarithms.

Having an A-Math tutor will not trivialise the uphill task, but it certainly helps to have someone catch you when you fall!
