Bringing maths into a whole new light, the internationally-recognised Singapore Maths programme is the best way to teach maths mastery. This method not only teaches how to use numbers, but also the many ways to think about numbers. Children reason through how and why equations work, based first on an intimate grasp of 0 to 10. Lessons begin with manipulatives (toys, counters, maths tools) and maths sentences that tell the story of an equation. Students are led to represent the stories with visual adaptations, and finally to translate this into an equation. Learning follows this sequence:
Concrete Pictorial Abstract
Young learners gain a strong foundation of "number sense" - the relationship between numerals and quantity, an understanding of symbols and vocabulary, competence with systematic counting and basic patterns, and awareness of magnitude and comparisons. Singapore Math ensures that from here, all students achieve a strong mastery of foundational concepts and facts.
The Aspace Singapore Maths class takes a fun and playful approach to traditional lessons. Songs, games and creative role-play lead cheerfully into practical applications of maths skills. Children practice the language and English vocabulary necessary to discuss and describe their thinking and real-life scenarios. Partner-work, group activities and individual attention collectively help children reach clear learning targets at each session.
