ab: Summary: In the recent review of the Singapore secondary mathematics
curriculum, {\it learning experience} has been incorporated as one of
the main emphases besides the revision in the mathematical content.
Learning experiences are explicitly stated in the mathematics syllabus
documents to influence the ways teachers teach and students learn in
order to achieve the curriculum objective. This chapter discusses (1)
the principles of selecting appropriate learning experiences and their
characteristics; and (2) how these learning experiences can be
organized for effective instruction in the secondary school mathematics
classrooms. The model of {\it R. W. Tyler} [Basic principles of
curriculum and instruction. Chicago, IL: University of Chicago Press
(1946)] will be the framework for discussion in this chapter. The
discussion will use illustrations from the Singapore lower secondary
mathematics classrooms.
