MATH IN FOCUS: SINGAPORE MATH®

“Singapore math encourages parents to be open-minded.  Singapore math is not what most parents in the United States studied in school, but please don’t resist it…Part of Singapore math is children making meaning of the math… We not only want the students to get the right answer, but we also want them to know why it is correct.”  (quoted in Lewis Brown, Laura.  “What’s Singapore Math?”)

“…Math in Focus is beneficial for problem solving and … advantageous for procedural skills…”  (quoted in Jaciw, Andrew and others.  “Assessing Impact of Math in Focus, a ‘Singapore Math’ Program for American Schools”)
