Just a few months into the academic school year and teachers have had a chance to experience many Singapore math lessons in their classrooms. Typically, the larger community, including parents and caregivers, become eager to find out more about the program and ways to support students as they transition into using these new concepts and strategies.
Hosting a Parent University or Math Night is one way to welcome this interest in supporting students while offering a background on the history of Singapore’s success and exposure to math concepts across many grades. We’d like to feature more school and district with successful community awareness initiatives. Post a comment or link to share your story.
