  7. 7. Five Factors to Singapore’s Success1. A sound curriculum2. High expectations3. Subject banding4. Well-managed schools5. Qualified & dedicated teachers
  8. 8. Singapore Math PhilosophyTopics are introduced then used for challenging problems Emphasis on Mental Math 26 + 16 26 4 12 30 + 12 = 42
  9. 9. Singapore Math PhilosophyWord problems begin in 1st grade.Instruction moves from the concrete to the pictorial to the abstract.Great for visual & English Language Learners.Mastery of basic math facts required!
  10. 10. Begin with the basics… Concrete ? Pictorial7+3= Abstract
  11. 11. 2 Types of Bar ModelsPart - Whole ModelUsed to find the whole given the parts or the parts given the whole.Comparison BarsUsed to compare two objects to each other.
  12. 12. Part – Whole ModelsOn Tuesday, Cole ran 6 miles. On Thursday,he ran 8 miles. How many miles did he runaltogether? 6 mi 8 mi ? mi
  13. 13. Comparison Bar ModelsLisa is 13 years old. Her sister is 22 years old.Find the difference in age between them. 13 ? Lisa Sister 22
