Why Teach Mathematics?

Mathematics is an “excellent vehicle

to develop and improve a person’s intellectual competence”

Singapore Ministry of Education, 2006

Why Singapore Math?

The math curriculum in Singapore has been recognized worldwide for its excellence in producing students highly skilled in mathematics.

Educators in the United States took notice when students in Singapore ranked top in the world in mathematics on the Trends in International Mathematics and Science Study (TIMSS) in 1993, 1995, 2003, and 2007. (Study done in Massachusetts)

What’s All the Buzz About? Singapore ranked top in the world in mathematics on the Trends in International Mathematics and Science Study (TIMSS) in 1993, 1995, 2003, and 2007.

- Bruner – CPA Approach
- What students say about...

- Concrete
“I like to learn with something I can touch, not just watching my teacher touch it. My teacher lets me touch and move lots of different things, too.”

- Pictorial
“…pictures in my math and reading books, magazines, pictures I can color, and pictures I can draw…”

- Abstract
“Numbers that my teacher writes, that I write, tally marks that I draw, number bond cards and numbers in books…”

What can I expect from Singapore ranked top in the world in mathematics on the Trends in International Mathematics and Science Study (TIMSS) in 1993, 1995, 2003, and 2007. Singapore Math?

Singapore Math curriculum…

- Helps students develop the necessary math concepts and process skills for everyday life and
- provides students with the ability to formulate, apply, and solve problems.

What can I expect from Singapore ranked top in the world in mathematics on the Trends in International Mathematics and Science Study (TIMSS) in 1993, 1995, 2003, and 2007. Singapore Math?

- Fewer topics are covered in greater depth enabling students sufficient time to gain mastery.
- We can use this to our advantage during this time of transition…

Compensation – make a hundred

456 – 98 becomes 458 – 100 = 358

(Uncle / Nephew)

I can add the same number to the minuend and the subtrahend and the difference stays the same.
