At S.A.M, we believe every child can be great at math if they understand it.
Unlike other math enrichment programs, we teach children to understand what math concepts really mean, so that computations are no longer a jumble of numbers and symbols; they hold meaning and dictate numerical relationships. By developing students’ critical thinking, logical reasoning and problem-solving skills, we equip them with the tools to tackle math with total confidence.
S.A.M Singapore Math program uses the two-pillared approach of classroom engagement and worksheet reinforcement with coaching, hands-on activities, guided and independent practice. An individualized learning plan is prescribed to suit each child’s level and pace, because no two children learn alike, with a low teacher to student ratio.
Emphasizing understanding before procedures, the Concrete-Pictorial-Abstract (CPA) approach is used to introduce new math concepts in an engaging and meaningful way. In addition, the Coaching approach is used to help children explore, discover and build confidence towards math. This is done in an intentionally small class setting of 5-6 children per trainer, where each child work on their own prescribed learning tasks.
Created by a team of former school teachers and textbook publishers, S.A.M worksheets’ tasks are comprehensive, varied and incrementally advanced, so that learning is kept challenging yet achievable, to keep children motivated. Through guided and independent practice, children develop mastery in math, problem-solving and thinking skills, self-discipline and good study habits.
