Singapore Math® produces an understanding through activities that progress from concrete (manipulatives) to pictorial (visuals) and finally to abstract (symbolic). Singapore math teaches for mastery, contains built-in differentiation, and mental math is nested in the program. It encourages students to apply and deepen their understanding as they move through more complex problems. Singapore Math consistently ranks at the top in international math testing.
