The 3-Step Learning Model
Concrete – using physical objects to work out problems
Pictorial – mentally connect objects and visual representation
Abstract – use numbers and math symbols
While traditional Math questions require a student to simply solve a question, for example, through mechanical means of applying the 4 modes of operation. Singapore Math often sees problem-solving questions incorporating these concepts.
Mr Chen & Singapore Math
The Ideal Enrichment Course
When Mr Chen was given the opportunity to study in Canada at the University of Toronto, he ensured that he had the full academic experience. During his time in Toronto, beyond attending classes at UofT, he took the opportunity to visit a local Elementary School. He wanted to fully appreciate the differences in curriculum between his home country, Singapore and Toronto.
During Mr Chen's short visit, he was able to see how Math was taught in Canada. He saw how most Elementary students breezed through the worksheet given, much to the credit of the class teacher. However, he also realized how students could be stretched further but were not provided the avenue to.
Upon further research, he realized Singapore Math has already entered many countries such as US. However, only some are aware while few are had the opportunity to experience. Many of whom are using Singapore Math as enrichment for their child.
Since Mr Chen's return from Toronto, he has graduated and entered the education sector. He has firmly established himself as a Math & Science Tutor since 2017, helping students of various demographics and academic abilities to achieve their goals.
Today, with the advent of "Online Teaching", Mr Chen decided to offer any keen individual the chance to learn authentic Singapore Math despite the distance while keeping it affordable to the masses.
