## & Mental Math

Singapore Math is a teaching method originally developed for K-6 students in Singapore, whose students scored highest in math tests internationally.

Singapore math uses a 3-step process that focuses on fewer math concepts at greater depth. Students learn to solve math problems first concretely, then pictorially, then abstractly. The process gives students a comprehensive understanding of each problem.

Mental math is an important skill that students can use for the rest of their lives.

Math appears often in school, work, and daily life. Students with mental math skills will have a good foundation for more complicated mathematics, as well as the tools to approach daily situations knowledgably. We teach mental calculation to prepare students to use math both inside and outside the classroom.
