Course Description:

For many students, basic math is a struggle. But for students and teachers in Singapore, math is much more intuitive. And Singaporean students have been top mathematics performers for over a decade!

Using layered curriculum founded on solid number sense and concrete, pictorial, and abstract computational strategies, Singaporean teachers make math purposeful, interesting and relevant. Learn over two dozen strategies to make math click for your students. We’ll begin by exploring what Singapore Math is and how it has become such a powerful and highly regarded math curriculum. Then we’ll talk about how number sense and place value instruction are the basis for all Singapore Math. From there, we’ll learn a variety of computational strategies to make addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division a cinch.
