Why attend?

Singapore’s approach to math education is much different from curricula commonly taught in American schools. For this reason, teachers need a solid understanding of Singapore’s pedagogy to deliver instruction.

Since 2008, Math Champions’ Teacher-Trainers have helped thousands of teachers understand and effectively teach elementary mathematics. The Jumpstart Your Singapore Math® program is based on training methods refined over the past decade through our work with more than 130 schools and more than 200 seminars for educators.

This workshop is for current and potential users of:

  • Dimensions Math
  • Primary Math
  • Math in Focus
  • Eureka/EngageNY
  • Think Mathematics
  • Anyone interested in incorporating these techniques into their own classroom, regardless of their current curriculum.
