A Delaware school district has successfully implemented Singapore Math, raising enjoyment, understanding, and test scores. This article describes their success. Here is one example:
Mount Pleasant Elementary Principal Joyce Skrobot did not need to be convinced to add Singapore math to the curriculum. Her school piloted the program over the past four years in some second-grade classes, and, on state tests, they outperformed the classes that did not use the math, she said.
“It really establishes a strong foundation of math skills with a lot of repetition,” she said. “It’s a very concrete approach to teaching.”
The district plans to offer parent workshops to explain the differences in the Singapore approach, a key component of long-term success.
