YHALE, when considering all available math curriculums, decided that Singapore Math was the most effective at teaching students the “why” and not just the “how” of Mathematics.
Singapore Math’s proven method of first teaching with the concrete, pictorial, and then the abstract, lays the foundation for upper level/advanced math in Middle and High school.
Word problems are throughout the curriculum – not in just one section like traditional textbooks. This reinforces language and real world use of mathematics.
In order to implement Singapore Math, the teachers at YHALE have been trained and are supported by our Math Curriculum Coordinator, Jennifer Hudson.
