Singapore Math

GATCA WA provides members with Singapore Math resources and in December 2017 GATCA will make an online program available to members

Singapore have taken an innovative approach to teaching elementary math — the curriculum focuses on problem solving particularly with diagrams which has resulted in Singapore students leading the world in math.

Non-routine (new to the student) math problem solving provides gifted students with:

  • An interesting and enjoyable way to learn mathematics that develops a childs quantitative reasoning
  • High order thinking skills – intellectual skills that call for more than the retrieval of information
  • The need to pay attention to detail and think clearly
  • Exposure to initial confusion and failure so they learn how to persist and trust their thinking
  • Read, interpret and manipulate precise and intricate ideas
  • The need to apply themselves steadily across time
