One-Day Intro: Teaching Maths for Mastery

Learn the essentials of the Singapore method

Discover the core concepts of the Singapore method of teaching maths for mastery during this one-day course.

This course offers a bird’s-eye view of maths mastery by summarizing over 20 years of pedagogy research. For teachers and schools researching maths mastery, this is the perfect first step.

This course introduces the same core elements as our three-day introductory course, but does not offer the same breadth of practical teaching strategies and concepts.

Teachers, School Leaders and Educational Professionals can now until May 8, for only £205 +vat or invite a colleague and book together for the price of £365 +vat (£182.5 each). Consultants’ charge is £365 +vat per person. Seating is limited.

Course highlights

  • Learn the core concepts of the Singapore method: the CPA approach, bar modelling, number bonds, and more.
  • Discover how to implement whole-class mastery in schools and districts, all while remaining in line with the English national curriculum.
  • Get in-depth knowledge from local experts on how to use and implement the maths mastery method.
  • Connect with a network of teachers, school leaders, maths experts, and good people — all under one roof.

Who should attend

This course is for anyone dedicated to raising standards of maths in Grades 1 to 6. No prior experience, course work, or expertise in maths mastery required.
