Math is the most important subject because it supports the development of critical and logical thinking, and provides students an effective power to analyze, describe, and change things. Moreover, math can be applied in each aspect of life. The Singapore math method is a highly effective teaching approach originally developed by Singapore’s Ministry of Education in the 1980s for Singapore public schools. The model method of Singapore math is in which the students learn to represent the information of the problems with the number bonds, bar modeling and other visual tools to arrive at the method of the solution. Singapore Math Challenge will provide fourth to sixth grade students with skill-building practice based on the leading math program in the world, Singapore Math. Common Core Standards accelerate math expectations for all students, creating a need for challenging supplementary math practice. Singapore Math Challenge is the ideal solution, with problems, puzzles, and brainteasers that strengthen mathematical thinking. Sign up for my class to help your young learners to build a strong mathematical foundation and ongoing success for your children.
