Singaporean teachers make math purposeful, interesting, and relevant using a layered curriculum founded on solid number sense and concrete, pictorial, and abstract computational strategies. This course will introduce numerous strategies to create meaningful math lessons of your own.
You will be introduced to what Singapore Math is and how it has become such a powerful and highly regarded math curriculum. Then you discover how number sense and place value instruction are the basis for all Singapore Math. From there, you will learn a variety of computational strategies to make addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division a cinch.
You won't need a passport to discover the curriculum of the world's math leader!
Note: To receive 25 hours of instruction in the State of Oregon, please ensure your school is eligible to issue professional development units, and that the course is approved by your professional learning coordinator.
