New sessions of this class begin on the third Wednesday of each month, and each session covers six weeks of online training.  New lessons are released each Wednesday and Friday during those six weeks, and you will be able to complete the course work at your convenience – at any time of day or night. 

Do your students cringe when it's time to pull out their math books? For many students, basic math is a struggle. But for students and teachers in Singapore, math is much more intuitive. And Singaporean students have been top mathematics performers for over a decade!

Using a layered curriculum founded on solid number sense and concrete, pictorial, and abstract computational strategies, Singaporean teachers make math purposeful, interesting, and relevant. Soon you'll learn their secrets and be able to have the same kind of meaningful math lessons in your classroom.

In this teacher training course, you'll learn over two dozen strategies to make math click for your students. We'll begin by exploring what Singapore Math is and how it has become such a powerful and highly regarded math curriculum. Then we'll talk about how number sense and place value instruction are the basis for all Singapore Math. From there, we'll learn a variety of computational strategies to make addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division a cinch.

You won't need a passport to discover the curriculum of the world's math leader!
