Singapore Math Learning Center Highlights
Wondering what Singapore Math is? A quote from the Singapore Math Learning Center states, “Before the 1980s, Singapore imported its math textbooks from other countries and its students were ranked in the lower half of countries in mathematics. At the beginning of 1980, Singapore started developing its own primary and secondary textbooks, The Curriculum Development Institute of Singapore published its first math program in 1982. In 1995, Singapore’s students were ranked first in the Trends in International Mathematics and Science Study (TIMSS). Since then, Singapore’s students have been consistently ranked among the top.”
