Why Singapore Math?

The Singapore mathematics curriculum is derived from an education system that focuses on thinking and places a strong emphasis on conceptual understanding and mathematical problem-solving. Instead of the “inch deep, mile wide” approach that is common in U.S. textbooks, the Singapore Math method follows a spiral progression. Students advance from concrete to pictorial and then to abstract representations. Among Singapore Math's unique learning tools is the Bar Model method, which allows students to visualize complex word problems through the use of diagrams. Through visualization, students learn to truly understand the relationships between and among the variables.
