  • Wanting to incorporate the best practices from Singapore into your current curriculum?
  • Just curious about the reasons for Singapore’s remarkable success?

if so…

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

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.

Day One offers a deep dive into the Singapore approach, including the pedagogy and number sense components.
Day Two offers two different programs for Grade Level bands: K-2 and 3-6:

  • The K-2 component focuses on hands-on learning and tasks for younger learners.
  • The 3-6 component includes deeper work with algorithms, fractions, and model drawing.

Why attend?

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 130 schools and more than 200 seminars for educators.

This workshop is for current and potential users of Primary Math and Math in Focus, as well as…any teacher interested incorporating these techniques into their own classroom, regardless of current curriculum.
