Math In Focus®

November 23, 2015

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.
