Hope that more and more people can appreciate and utilise Singapore Math for the benefit of their students and children! Singapore Math is the key secret that has led Singapore to progress up in the educational rankings, especially in early education stages. Students and parents all over the world, including the United States, have been using Singapore Math syllabus to great success.
For readers who are interested to learn more about Singapore Math, do check out some of my earlier blog posts on Singapore Math:
“As it is, the book is indispensable; it has, indeed, no serious English rival.” — Times Literary Supplement “Sir Thomas Heath, foremost English historian of the ancient exact sciences in the twentieth century.” — Prof. W. H. Stahl
“Indeed, seeing that so much of Greek is mathematics, it is arguable that, if one would understand the Greek genius fully, it would be a good plan to begin with their geometry.”
Singapore math (or Singapore maths in British English) is a teaching method based on the national math curriculum used for kindergarten through sixth grade in Singapore. It involves teaching students to learn and master fewer mathematical concepts at greater detail as well as having them learn these concepts using a three-step learning process. The three steps are concrete, pictorial, and abstract. In the concrete step, students engage in hands-on learning experiences using concrete objects such as chips, dice, or paper clips. This is followed by drawing pictorial representations of mathematical concepts. Students then solve mathematical problems in an abstract way by using numbers and symbols.
