In addition to the math content, you’ll learn how to use assessments, assign and evaluate home enjoyment and strategies to remediate and extend lessons for student learning.

Jumpstart Schedule:

Day One begins with a deep dive into the Singapore approach, including the pedagogy and number sense components.

After lunch, choose from two different programs for Grade Level bands: K-2 and 3-8 focusing on number sense and operations.

Day Two begins with differentiated sessions focusing on k-2 and 3 – 8 content including mental math strategies, multi-step word problems, and advanced model drawing.

Bring your books! We’ll spend the afternoon analyzing Singapore curricula and developing hands-on lessons for your grade level that you can take right back to your classroom. We’ll also focus on remediation and extension activities to enhance your lessons.

Don’t have materials yet? We’ve got you covered! We will have some books or digital access for many curriculums available at the session

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.
