1. Singapore Math Monday, February 108:30

2. Why Singapore Math? • A good fit for Primary Day • Concept Mastery • Math in Focus – American version of Singapore Math (excellent resources)

3. Implementation: Math in Focus • Highly ScaffoldedCurriculum: Math in Focus adapts instruction to the needs of individual learners through scaffolding (gradually remove the supports as the learner masters the task)

4. Implementation: Concepts The sequence of topics has been carefully constructed based upon child development theory. Primary Grades focus on foundational concepts: basic facts, place value, mental math, algebraic thinking, geometry concepts, spatial visualization* (pictorial) Problem solving and data analysis throughout the program

5. Pre-K: Building a Strong Foundation Counting Numbers to 100 Order Shapes Classifying and Sorting Calendar Patterns Addition and Subtraction Stories

6. Kindergarten: Mastering Basics Number Bonding Part-Part-Whole Number Sense to 100 Number Bonds 1-12 Mastery of Addition and Subtraction Concepts Ordinal Numbers and Position Mental Math Strategies Introduce Place Value, Money, Time, and Graphs

7. First Grade: Exploring New Concepts Base Ten Blocks • Mastery: • Place Value and Number Sense • Numbers to 1,000 • Base Ten Block Patterns • Addition and Subtraction with Regrouping • Mental Math and Estimation • Introduced: • Time and Money • Fractions • Measurement • Graphing • Geometry • Problem Solving Base Ten Regrouping

8. Second Grade: Confident Learners Place Value Numbers to 10,000 Addition and Subtraction to 10,000 Multiplication and Division Money Elapsed Time Fractions Geometry Graphing Real-World Problems with Bar Modeling

9. Integrated technology Ipads, SMART boards, IXL – nonverbal reasoning skills Enhances the learning experience and offers ways to communicate, collaborate, and create

10. Differentiation • Math is developmental! • Two goals: • Content • Flexible grouping – small groups • Pre-assessment • Resources • Differentiation Resources: Extra Practice, Reteach, and Enrichment opportunities provided for every lesson • Process • Stations for independent learners • Activities for visual, kinesthetic and auditory learners • Activities that vary in complexity • Cross-curricular • Enrichment Class: • Critical thinking essential to any math curriculum • Develop spatial and logical reasoning over their four years • “Games” (cooperative activities) learning tools, assessment, drill
