The Singapore Method Takes the Mystery Out of Math — For Good

The Singapore method of teaching math for mastery prompts a deep and meaningful understanding of math in all students.

Students gain a strong sense of mathematical fluency by exploring essential concepts through a wider range of exercises and at a gradual pace. Instead of relying on rote memorization, students learn to reason mathematically — enabling all learners to solve increasingly complex problems.

The Singapore method is an amalgamation of global ideas delivered as an efficient package of teaching methods and resources. It is the result of over 20 years of research, and has been refined by academics, experts, teachers, and consultants from around the world.
