Description

Learn Python While Enhancing Your Child’s Understanding of Mathematics

Consistently ranked #1 as the “Most Popular Coding Language“, learning Python will enable your child to build programs that are used widely today in many domains; Eg. Web Development, Data Science, and Artificial Intelligence.

In this program specifically designed based on the GCE "O" and "A" levels Mathematics curriculum, Mathematics will be used as the context through which students pick up Python programming skills. They will learn how to develop a simultaneous or quadratic equation solver, program Monte Carlo simulations, and more, leading to a better understanding of these complex and abstract Mathematical concepts.

This powerful synergistic pairing of Math and Programming, developed by Coding Lab's Award-Winning team of curriculum advisors, has been tested in selected MOE schools and proven to provide students a solid foundation in both.
