Why Singapore Math?
Over the years, Singapore students have consistently ranked amongst the top scorers in the field of science and math
Singapore students continue to rank better than their peers from several other nations in international exams like TIMSS (Trends in International Mathematics and Science Study) and PISA (Program for International Student Assessment).
Singapore Math is a teaching method based on the Singapore Ministry of Education’s national primary mathematics curriculum used for Grade 1 to Grade 6 in Singapore schools.
This unique learning style emphasizes mastery of one concept at a time, before moving on to the next concept. This approach allows students imbibe a deeper understanding of math concepts, and the ability to apply them to a wide range of problems.
Mathematics education in Singapore broadly aims at enabling students to:
Acquire and apply mathematical concepts and skills
Develop cognitive skills through a mathematical approach to problem solving
Develop a positive attitude towards mathematics
Central to Singapore Math's success is the Concrete-Pictorial-Abstract (CPA) approach, globally recognized and implemented in various countries, including the US, UK, India, and beyond.
Notably, even Jeff Bezos, founder of Amazon has chosen this method for his children's education. The widespread adoption of Singapore Math underscores it's global appeal and efficiency.
