perspective to help students understand math concepts

What is Singapore Math?

In the U.S., the term Singapore Math often refers to a


collection of math teaching strategies common in
Singaporean classrooms. Sometimes it describes the full
math curriculum used in Singapore for grades K6.
Singaporeans do not use this phrase.

Multiplication

Knowing your multiplication facts is vital to being successful in


upper level math.

Our goal for each student is to be accurate and efficient with


multiplication facts 0-10 by the end of April. Once he/she knows
those facts, they will move on to the division

Students should practice their facts at home for 5-10 minutes


several nights a week.

Practice can include:

Making flash cards

Using flash cards to practice

Parents or older siblings quizzing the student
