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:
