Singapore Curriculum Document

Teach Less, Learn More TLLM
Original Speech by Minister Tharman

TLLM After a Decade

I am teaching a session of the course MSc 6162 Curriculum and Assessment Under Curriculum Reform at Chinese University of Hong Kong.

I am planning to outline the Singapore mathematics curriculum - the development, focus, theoretical underpinnings and implementation. I am using the overarching question - What are the challenges facing high-achieving systems like Singapore and Hong King in terms of curriculum and student assessment? to frame the discussion | Chinese University of Hong Kong
Additional Perspective from another Singapore-based educator.


  1. Wow! You are so efficient - putting the slides on your blog in such a short time. Thanks for visiting CUHK. Thanks for the two interesting talks. I like the seminar in this evening very much. (It happens that I have used 2 sessions to teach problem solving in the course 6161 in the first semester. Many of the students in that course are also the students in the course tonight. I think the students could benefit a lot by looking at the same topic but different perspectives -- one from cognitive psychology; and another from curriculum.) See you some time some where later. (Dr Chan @ CUHK)

    1. It was a pleasure to have academic exchanges like this.

  2. Haha, YC, you are also efficient. Many thanks for your coming! QP
