Our Journey

Maths — No Problem! was created by husband and wife team Andy Psarianos and Dr. Anne Hermanson who wanted to help their daughter when she fell behind in maths.

Andy first came across Singapore Maths while lecturing in Singapore in the late 1990s. The country’s maths teaching had just grabbed the attention of the world after shooting to the top of the international maths league tables. Anne was covering the story for the Canadian Broadcast Corporation and Andy was dispatched to organise an interview with the Singaporean Ministry of Education. This meeting provided their first taste of the Singaporean approach to teaching maths.

Years later in Tunbridge Wells, England when their own daughter fell behind in maths, the couple sourced maths textbooks from Singapore to provide extra support at home. The results attracted the attention of other parents and Maths — No Problem! was born.

 

Dr Yeap Ban Har is one of the world’s leading experts on the Singapore Method and is the technical consultant for the Maths – No Problem! series.

An accomplished and inspirational trainer, Ban Har spent ten years at the National Institute of Education in Singapore where he was involved in several funded research programmes in mathematics education. Ban Har was part of the team which reviewed the Singapore Maths curriculum for the revised 2013 syllabus and he teaches courses at tertiary institutions in South East Asia and North America.
