The Columbus, Ohio, school district this year adopted a Singapore-style math curriculum for some of its students in grades K-2. The slower-paced curriculum aims to develop a deeper understanding of numbers and place value, with students trying to discover why certain methods are used to solve particular problems. The new approach replaces so-called reform math, which focused on abstract learning and playing games to reinforce concepts.
Schoodoodle.com carries a wides selection of Singapore Math workbooks designed to help teachers, parents, and students understand and apply this new method of teaching math. Also, browse our entire selection of math bulletin boards, posters and charts, manipulatives, and other resources for math.
