    Singapore Mathematics Implementation Project

    Singapore Mathematics refers to the math textbooks from the small Asian country of Singapore.  Since 1995, it has been one of the top performing countries in mathematics in the TIMSS study. Their success is not just due to the quality of the books, but to the strong mathematical preparation of their elementary teachers. Richard Bisk professor of mathematics at Worcester State University, has provided content-based professional development for teachers using these books since 2000. His work focuses on improving the mathematical understanding of teachers and is valuable regardless of the textbook series that the teachers are using.

    Dr. Bisk is a consulting author for Math In Focus and has also done extensive work using the Primary Math editions. He has given presentations on his work and provided professional development in the United States, Singapore, Korea, Thailand, Great Britain and Portugal.  He can be reached at rbisk@Verizon.net  or 508-929-8962.
