Do any of you use the Singapore Math Program? My school is thinking about purchasing this program and I would like to talk to someone who has implemented it. Thanks.

...on these boards. You might try a search. Let me know where you are and maybe I can suggest a school to go visit to see the curriculum in action.

if you would like to contact me. Please see my profile for info. One very important note is it is not a magic pill; it requires good professional development/training to have a good effect on scores, etc.

Implementing Next Year

Hi! My school district voted to implement this program next year. We had Greg Tang (a great resource if your district is planning to purchase this program) come and do professional development "classes" at our school. I call them classes, because he really taught us a new way to think about math - which correlates to the Singapore Math Program. I've heard that it really shakes things up a bit when it's first started because it is SO different from the Math that we've been taught; however, it just seems like a smarter way to teach and learn Math, which, in the end, is better for our students. Good Luck!
