  6. 6. In the 1970’s, Singapore needed a way to help students, mostof whom were not performing well in mathematics, learnmathematics.CPA Approach based on Bruner’s work and a host of otherlearning theories were applied. Today, many people refer tothis approach as Singapore Math.

  14. 14. differentiation |
  15. 15. “The idea of differentiating instruction is an approach toteaching that advocates active planning for andattention to student differences in classrooms,in the context of high quality curriculums.”| www.caroltomlinson.com
  16. 16. Goh’s Report (1978) recommended adifferentiated education system forSingapore.Grade 1 to 4MathematicsFoundationMathematics
  17. 17. Grade 1Regular ProgramLearning SupportGoh’s Report (1978) recommended adifferentiated education system forSingapore.
  18. 18. We want to make our education system evenmore student-centric, and sharpen our focusin holistic education – centred on values andcharacter development.| Heng 2011
  19. 19. Differentiated instruction is reflected in the ProfessionalLearning Communities (PLC) four criticalquestions| DuFour 2004Educational LeadershipMay 2004 | Volume 61 | Number 8Schools as Learning Communities
  20. 20. what is it that the teacher wantsstudents to learn
  21. 21. how does a teacher know whenstudents have learnt it
  22. 22. what if students do not learn it
  23. 23. what if they already learnt it
  24. 24. model ofdifferentiation |
  25. 25. What to Differentiate• Content• Process• Product
  26. 26. the content of instruction
  27. 27. Grade 1 to 4MathematicsFoundationMathematicsExampleSingapore Grade 5 and 6 Curriculum isan example of content differentiation.
  28. 28. the processes and techniques used to help makesense of a given topic
  29. 29. the products produced by students that demonstratetheir learning
  30. 30. Levels of Differentiation• Student Level• Class Level
  31. 31. differentiation for the entire class
  32. 32. differentiation for groupswithin a class
  33. 33. Differentiation for Advanced Learners• Acceleration model• Enrichment model
  34. 34. acceleration
  35. 35. enrichment
  36. 36. concept learning |
  37. 37. Struggling students get to understand the idea of line of symmetry through paperfolding. Ideas such as the two parts overlap when folded at the line of symmetry makesmore sense after having actually done it. At the same time, students who already knowabout lines of symmetry get to (1) look for a pattern (2) explain the pattern.Differentiated instruction provides every student to learn what they need to learn.
  38. 38. concept learning |
  39. 39. concept learning |
  40. 40. word problem|
  41. 41. There is amethod ofsolving that ismore literal andconcrete – guess-and-check.The model method is visual. The use of algebra is more abstract.Differentiated instruction provides students with methods of differentlevel of abstraction to respond.
  42. 42. practice|
  43. 43. teaching of ratio |
  44. 44. Ratio is about multiplicative comparison.
  45. 45. The number of boys to the number ofgirls in a group was in the ratio 2 : 3.
  46. 46. The number of boys to the number ofgirls in a group was in the ratio 2 : 3.After ¼ of the boys and 69 girls leftthe group, there were 51 more girlsthan boys in the group.
