Studies have shown that students in Singapore continue to be the world’s top performers in the area of mathematics. One factor of their success is the Singapore Math® Approach curriculum, which has been widely recognized for its ability to build foundation to mastery.
Math In Focus® is adapted from Singapore’s My Pals Are Here Maths series. The underpinning philosophy of both series is the same and both aim to ensure that students strengthen critical thinking and reach mastery of concepts, computational skills and problem-solving and its applications to real life situations. Math In Focus® is a complete Singapore Math® series that combines research based print components with online resources that makes math engaging and accessible to K-8 students. Content is developed using the Concrete-Pictorial-Abstract Approach, which allows students to master math concepts, develop critical thinking and strengthen problem-solving skills.
The Math In Focus® series include resources such as eBooks, interactive whiteboard activities, online activities, both concrete and virtual manipulatives, and a Bar Modeling app that provide students with hands-on experiences that lead to positive attitudes towards math and increased confidence as they grow in the subject.

Primary Mathematics textbooks are the American versions of the internationally respected mathematics materials Marshall Cavendish Education created in collaboration with the Singapore Ministry of Education. It follows the five key learning models integrated in the Singapore MathÂ® Approach: Concrete-Pictorial-Abstract approach, model drawing, teaching to mastery, metacognition and spiral progression. Primary Mathematics curricula also includes a digital courseware that engages students for differentiated learning and gives teachers easy-to-use tracking and management features.
