Further information

The Singapore method of teaching mathematics develops children’s mathematical ability and confidence without having to resort to memorising procedures. It incorporates the use of concrete aids and manipulatives, through the concrete, pictorial and abstract approach, problem solving and group work.

Ofsted, National Centre for Excellence in the Teaching of Mathematics (NCETM) and the Department for Education (DfE) have all emphasised the value of the pedagogical and discovery learning nature of the Singapore approach to teaching maths.

With teaching methods that have been tried and tested over the last 30 years, and through the incorporation of key learning theories, such as Piaget, Dienes, Bruner, Skemp and Vygotsky Singapore has become a “laboratory of maths teaching” which has seen them rise to the top of the international rankings for TIMSS (The Trends in International Mathematics and Science) and PISA (The Programme for International Student Assessment).

Based on the transformational methods developed in Singapore, this Maths - No Problem! professional development course will equip you with the skills and confidence you need to teach maths for mastery and facilitate great problem solving in the classroom.
