Why is Singapore Math good? What’s so different about it?

The Singapore Math curriculum offers an innovative and highly effective approach to learning Mathematics.

It has proven its quality and produced consistent results when it comes to improving students’ Mathematical performance in both state and standardized tests.

This highly regarded Singapore Mathematics curriculum has been around for many years and has been widely been adopted by many high-achieving schools worldwide.
Year 4 and Year 8 Singapore students were ranked first in the Trends in International Mathematics and Science Study (TIMSS) in 1995, 1999, 2003 and 2015.
Singapore’s 15-year-old students’ Math performance was ranked first for the International Student Assessment (PISA) in 2015 from second in 2009 and 2012.

This success is largely due to the way the curriculum was designed.

Geared towards the primary school level, it employs a three-step learning system to ensure that pupils fully grasp and retain the concepts they are being taught, and incorporates problem-solving heuristics into solving everyday Math problems.

How Singapore Math supplements school perfectly

1. Logical learning process: Concrete – Pictorial – Abstract

Instead of going a mile wide but an inch deep in terms of content, the Singapore Math curriculum focuses on fewer topics but covers these in much greater depth.

Mathematical concepts are built on top of what students had learnt earlier in class and topics are revisited in gradually increasing level of difficulties.

This mental “scaffolding” allows children to master more complex thoughts and ideas and gain a more solid understanding of how Math works.

2. Concrete-pictorial-abstract approach for easier mastery

Young children learn Singapore Mathematics better due to its concrete-pictorial-abstract approach (also known as the CPA method).

As they relate Math problems to visual representations using bar models as part of the Singapore bar model method, they will be able to achieve mastery of abstract Mathematical concepts using numbers and Math symbols much faster.

3. Application-focused to improve problem-solving skills

To help children achieve mastery and true understanding, Singapore Math focuses on applying every Mathematical concept learnt throughout different problems across the topics.

This research-proven method of repetition and engagement have been found to be highly effective, strengthening students’ ability to relate and connect what they have learnt and become better problem solvers.
