SINGAPORE MATH IN THE PHILIPPINES

The Singapore Math curriculum has created a name worldwide in producing students who are brilliant in Math. Many schools and educators around the world were awed by how the math curriculum of Singapore help their students to consistently land on one of the top ranks, if not the topmost rank,  of Trends in International Mathematics and Science Study (TIMSS). TIMSS is a large-scale assessment taken by Grade 4 and Grade 8 students of participating countries to provide internationally comparative data about students’ achievement in Math and Science. These data inspired many schools all over the world to use the Singapore Math curriculum.

In the Philippines, many schools have adapted Singapore Math in their curriculum like Ateneo de Manila Grade School, Xavier School, Immaculate Concepcion Academy (ICA), KEYS Grade School, MGC New Life Christian Academy, Victory Christian International School, and Meridian International Learning Experience. Some students who study in schools which use the traditional math, on the other hand, go to after-school centers offering Singapore Math like the Kinetic Math Enrichment Center (link of about us page)  in Katipunan (link of contact us page)  and in San Juan (link of contact us page). Kinetic Math’s Singapore Math program uses energizing and engaging learning activities which help students develop numerical fluency, creativity, critical thinking and problem solving skills while enjoying math.

The Singapore Math program of Kinetic Math helps students develop not only their critical, creative and problem solving skills but also their positive attitude about math. It teaches students in stages, beginning with the concrete (using manipulatives), then moving to the pictorial (solving problems with pictures) and finally working in the abstract (numbers). It makes children learn not just the “how’s” but also the “why’s” of mathematics which strengthens the pupils’ conceptual understanding.
