The program focuses on problem solving as the foundation of mathematical learning using a variety of models to help students visualize and understand mathematical concepts. Math in Focus teaches concepts using a concrete-pictorial-abstract learning progression to anchor student knowledge in real- world, hands-on experiences, supported by technology applications. Math in Focus encourages positive student interaction with mathematics, which results in students developing an ability to easily solve complex, real-world math problems. What's Singapore Math?
