FAQ

Why use a Singapore based curriculum?

The Singapore curriculum for mathematics and science has consistently produced excellent results. Singapore is at the top of the charts in international comparisons of educational systems such as TIMSS and PIRLS. More than 30 countries worldwide have successfully integrated the textbooks and workbooks into their schools and are achieving their desired outcomes!

What standards does the series adhere to?

The think!Mathematics series follows the Common Core Curriculum. 

What books are a must?

Student textbooks and workbooks are the core of our program. Teaching guides are also an invaluable tool for classroom teachers as they outline the learning objectives, additional classroom activities and the schemes of work. The student books (textbooks) have many examples of concrete and pictorial activities which are meant to be performed in a guided practice environment (guided by an adult but performed by the student). This formulates the basis for learning. In a classroom children would typically use the textbooks to reflect on methods their "friends" in the book used to solve a given task. The workbook is meant for individual work: the students answer and solve a series of questions designed to reinforce what they have just learned. 

Does think!Mathematics offer a Kindergarten Curriculum?

 [Math]odology offers a Kindergarten program, Developing Roots, that integrates the philosophy of the Singapore approach.
