The First Post

There has to be a first one, right? I’ve added a blog to my Singapore Math pages to provide ongoing information about Singapore Math, elementary mathematics, news and anything I find interesting and math-y. You can expect that it will focus on elementary level mathematics and lesson ideas.  Anything within than realm goes!

Look around.

Enjoy.
