**Singapore Math**Monday, February 108:30**Why Singapore Math?**• A good fit for Primary Day • Concept Mastery • Math in Focus – American version of Singapore Math (excellent resources)**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)**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**Pre-K: Building a Strong Foundation**Counting Numbers to 100 Order Shapes Classifying and Sorting Calendar Patterns Addition and Subtraction Stories**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**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**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**Integrated technology**Ipads, SMART boards, IXL – nonverbal reasoning skills Enhances the learning experience and offers ways to communicate, collaborate, and create**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
