Faculty members of the Department play an active and substantial role in the Singapore Mathematical Society. Outreach activities are organised for the promotion of mathematics education among schools and junior colleges. These include lectures at schools and junior colleges, enrichment programmes for primary and secondary school students, workshops for secondary school and junior college teachers, as well as mathematics competitions, namely Singapore Mathematical Olympiad (Junior, Senior and Open Sections), Singapore Secondary School Mathematical Olympiad (Junior and Senior Sections), and Singapore Mathematics Project Festival (Junior and Senior Sections).
Faculty members of the Department help the Ministry of Education to train the Singapore team for the International Mathematical Olympiad.
As its commitment to mathematics education of the nation, the Department is very active in providing mathematics enrichment talks to the schools in Singapore. A large number of talks on various topics of interest have been delivered at many different schools.
The Department organises public lectures to promote mathematics education and awareness of its usefulness. These are presented by faculty members of the Department as well as international experts. Public lectures by the latter are jointly organised with the Institute for Mathematical Sciences (IMS).
Faculty members also propose and supervise projects under special programmes of the Ministry of Education. These programmes include the Science Research Programme for junior college students, the Science Mentorship Programme for secondary school students, and the Science Training-In-Action (SCIENTIA) Programme for NUS High School of Mathematics and Science.
The Department has hosted visits from both local and overseas schools and delegations.
