Jumpstart Your Singapore Math On Demand

Jumpstart Your Singapore Math® Instruction is an intensive learning opportunity that will cover all the essential elements of Singapore’s highly-acclaimed math program, including strategies, number sense, model drawing, and curriculum.

  • Are you a teacher new to the Singapore approach to math instruction?
  • Looking for a refresher to boost your math teaching skills?
  • Wanting to incorporate the best practices from Singapore into your current curriculum?
  • Just curious about the reasons for Singapore’s remarkable success?

We have the on-demand program for you. As much as we’d love to work with you in-person, we know that many states are in limbo right now, awaiting budget and schedule decisions for fall, however, we are fully prepared to support you and your teachers with the best training possible in these unusual circumstances. And so…

We’re thrilled to announce that we are offering the sessions as a synchronous/asynchronous (or choose your buzzword: video and live, online, remote…) workshop format.

Here’s how it works:

Part 1: Video Modules

You will have access to almost 6 hours of recorded modules covering the basics of Singapore Math, along with a Math Champions Sourcebook for six weeks. The modules cover the bulk of the mathematical content we typically address during onsite Jumpstart workshops.

  • Module 1: What is Singapore Math? What are the foundations and pedagogy of the curriculum? What should a typical lesson look like?
  • Module 2: What are the addition and subtraction foundations I need to know? How do I teach mental math strategies?
  • Module 3: How do I teach multiplication facts? What mental math strategies for multiplication and division do I need to know?
  • Module 4: How do I use place value discs to teach the four operations for whole numbers and decimals?
  • Module 5: What is bar modeling? How do I teach bar modeling in a classroom?

Part 2: Live meetings!

Typically, the Jumpstart Your Singapore Math workshops are curriculum neutral, meaning, we can’t address specific content for every set of Singapore books.  In addition to the online video modules, you can schedule a one-hour Zoom (or other format) online meeting. That’s one-hour of personal coaching and consulting with Cassy Turner where we can discuss your curricular materials, specific school situation questions, or just talk more math!

Why Math Champions?

Singapore’s approach to math education is much different than 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 160 schools and more than 200 seminars for educators.

This workshop is for current and potential users of

  • Dimensions Math
  • Primary Math
  • Math in Focus – even the new MiF 2020!
  • Eureka/EngageNY
  • Think Mathematics
  • anyone interested in incorporating these techniques into their own classroom, regardless of their current curriculum.
