Singapore Math and the K-12 Curriculum: Complements and Supplements

Following the success of the Singapore Math Learning Festival last October 2011, the Galileo Enrichment Learning Program once again leads the way in bringing fresh ideas and exciting innovations that school administrators, teachers and parents can use in their classroom and in the confines of the house.

The 2nd Singapore Math Learning Festival will be held on February 9, 2013 at the Crown Plaza Hotel at Ortigas. The conference will focus on how Singapore Math can complement and provide supplementary learning to the implementation of the K-12 program, a new development of the Department of Education.

The K-12 program is an initiative to give students opportunities to master essential skills and competencies by stretching and extending their learning years to the 12th grade. It focuses on depth rather than on breadth, giving them more time to realize the importance of each concept and connect it to more complex and higher learning.

In this age of global competitiveness, parents are looking for schools that would unlock the potential of each child in the core subjects, one of which is Mathematics. Schools are now adopting Singapore Math into their Math curriculum and instruction, which has paved the way in creating excellent critical thinkers and better Math students.

Parents, teachers and school administrators might ask, “What is Singapore Math and how does it fit into the K-12 curriculum?”

Singapore Math focuses on developing critical thinking through mastery of foundational skills. It teaches students a systematic way of learning seemingly difficult math concepts through child-friendly terms and relatable experiences. This complements the K-12 curriculum, as it strengthens key concepts and provides opportunities to apply it in daily activities as well as in other subjects.

There will be concurrent learning sessions that will tackle topics such as the basics of Singapore Math, how Singapore Math can be applied in various activities inside and outside the classroom, manipulatives and materials to enhance a child’s learning capabilities, innovative activities in teaching geometry and fractions, and how Singapore Math helps students transition from basic to Algebraic concepts.

The conference will also feature a plenary lecture by Dr. Queena Lee-Chua – Math professor and multi-awarded educator – and her son Scott Chua, a multi-awarded student and a Carlos Palanca Awardee for Literature.

Galileo is another learning program for Singapore Math here in the Philippines.

So what could be the difference to our traditional math to Singapore Math? We heard a lot about math in different from other tutoring company and all of them have style in teaching math, but in Galileo their Singapore Math method are being thought properly and easy to understand.

Me and other blogger friend/parents we’re invited to attend and a chance to try Singapore Math by Galileo last 15th of October 2012 at Powerbook, Bonifacio High Street in Bonifacio Global City and on that event we learned about Singapore Math. Actually it’s fun if you are willing to learn and an additional skills on how to solve math, I encounter a lot of math during my high school we follow instructions of the math teacher and in college days we even create our own formula to come up on the different solutions, but the same answer.

Now Singapore Math by Galileo are being thought to some filipino elementary students, the main purpose is to be able to understand and have fun learning math in the most easiest way of solving it.

After learning a new helpful and fun way on how to teach math to my son I recommend to all parents to have your kids learn a new and fun way of learning math in Galileo for Singapore Math.
