SingaporeMath in Action

Based on teacher education program in Singapore, about 90 Filipino educators made up the first class of Singapore Math in Action. Slides from four sessions are available here. The next Singapore Math in Action is scheduled for 24-25 September 2010.

For participants of the first class, these are the readings that you should complete to deepen your learning:

Read http://www.simplypsychology.pwp.blueyonder.co.uk/bruner.html for Bruner`s ideas
Read http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jerome_Bruner also for Bruner. There is a link to Spiral Curriculum
Read http://www.skemp.org.uk/ for Skemp`s idea on understanding. This is his website and the paper on relational and instrumental understanding is found under the section titled Papers.
Read http://www.zoltandienes.com/ for Dienes` six-stage theory. And try to locate some reading, books or on-line, about perceptual and mathematical variability.

For participants who want to have a documentation of their learning beyond the certificate each has received, you are invited to submit something that you have tried out in your own classrooms based on Singapore Math in Action that you have attended. Details are in the e-mail sent to all participants of the course.

  1. I blog on math workbooks and really like Singapore Math, Daily Word Problems and Life of Fred at http://PragmaticMom.com

    I have reviews on these workbooks/textbooks if you want more details.

    My kids use these for summer supplementation (we pick and choose chapters).
