Hi Izulia

- We have maths on Tuesday.
This is correct, but it suggests that if you are talking ONLY about next Tuesday (in other words, one specific Tuesday). However, this sentence may also sometimes be used more generally to mean "every Tuesday".

- We have maths on Tuesdays.This sentence refers to more than one Tuesday. It is appropriate to use if you want to say that you have math every Tuesday.

This sentence needs some corrections:

- According to the school timetable, swimming lessons are held every Tuesday.
