Introduction
  • Singapore math is the term used to refer to the
    mathematics curriculum used in Singapore. For
    over 15 years, Singapore has consistently scored
    at the top of international mathematics
    comparison studies. Its unique approach to
    teaching math which focuses on problem solving,
    deep understanding, and model drawing has
    helped Singapore students excel, and now U.S.
    students have the same opportunity to benefit
    from this proven curriculum!
  • Math in Focus is the U.S. edition of Singapores
    most widely used program. It teaches the same
    content as traditional mathematics programs
    just in a way that emphasizes understanding and
    flexible thinking. Math in Focus will teach your
    children both how and why math works. This deep
    understanding means that they will be better able
    to use math in real-life situations.

Bar Modeling
  • The bar modeling method is a common diagrammatic
    problem-solving tool that is introduced at the
    primary level and can be used to solve both
    arithmetic and algebraic problems.

    add and subtract fractions.
  • Analyzes previous knowledge to multiply and
    divide fractions.
  • Generates and analyzes numerical expressions,
    patterns and relationships
  • Identifies and analyzes geometric concepts.
  • Interprets data and converts measurement units
    within a given measurement system.

13
Homework
  • Homework will be assigned to students based on
    their individual needs. There will be times when
    students will have the same homework in one
    class, and there will be other times when it may
    vary based on the learning needs of each of the
    students in the class.

14
iPad AppGrades 2, 3, 4 5 ONLY
  • Allow your child to visualize even the most
    complex math word problems with Singapore Math,
    Bar Models. This activity uses the signature
    Singapore math method for problem solving and
    teaches children in Grades 25 how to visually
    represent word problems in a fun and interactive
    way.
  • The problems align closely with the Math in
    Focus Singapore Math by Marshall Cavendish
    curriculum.
  • These will be provided for all classroom and
    school iPad use.
