Math in Focus - Singapore's top-ranking, research-based approach to teaching mathematics now in U.S. classrooms. The authentic Singapore Mathematics pedagogy supports the idea that fewer topics taught in greater depth at each grade level results in better understanding and retention than methods which tend to teach "a mile wide and an inch deep". The Singapore math program features visual representations and modeling strategies to solve complex problems; a consistent concrete-pictorial-abstract progression; and strong development of both conceptual understanding, place value, and computational fluency so that students understand “how” as well as “why” math works.
The following is a definition taken from the Parent Resource page on Math in Focus: What is Singapore Math? “Singapore math” is the term used to refer to the mathematics curriculum used in Singapore. For over 15 years, Singapore has consistently scored at the top of international mathematics comparison studies. Its unique approach to teaching math — which focuses on problem solving, deep understanding, and model drawing — has helped Singapore students excel, and now U.S. students have the same opportunity to benefit from this proven curriculum!
Math in Focus® is the U.S. edition of Singapore’s most widely used program. It teaches the same content as traditional mathematics programs — just in a way that emphasizes understanding and flexible thinking. Math in Focus will teach your children both how and why math works. This deep understanding means that they will be better able to use math in real-life situations.
