SINGA (Singapore Math Global Assessments)

Overview

This is a new international Singapore Mathematics assessment for grades 1 to 12 written by top Singapore Ministry of Education (MOE) teachers that will offered to every country in the world. Singapore Math is taught in over 70 countries globally and SINGA MATH will be the standard to measure students and inform parents and teachers with valuable formative and summative assessment data for them to improve teaching and learning.

We have partnered Scholastic Trust Singapore Teachers’ Institute (STTI) to bring you SINGA MATH as well as training for teachers on how to use Formative and Summative Assessment data to diagnose students’ misconceptions about mathematics and plan lessons to correct these misconceptions.

Singapore Math is renowned worldwide. But to stay at the top, it needs constant energy and challenge – so SINGA MATH has been born. Welcome to SINGA MATH, where we share the best practices in mathematics learning and students gauge how good they are at math.

Objective

We are a team of dedicated mathematics educators who want to help students and teachers from all over the world to improve in math education. Singapore started with a very poor education base after independence from the British in 1965 and by 1980, we were at the rock bottom of world education rankings.

The “Singapore method” was first developed by a team of teachers in Singapore in the 1980s, who were given the task of creating high-quality teaching materials by the ministry of education. They studied the latest behavioural science research as well as travelled to schools in other countries, including Canada and Japan, to compare the effectiveness of different teaching methods. Aiming to move away from simple rote-learning and to focus instead on teaching children how to problem solve, the textbooks the group produced were influenced by educational psychologists such as the American Jerome Bruner, who posited that people learn in three stages: by using real objects, then pictures, and then through symbols. That theory contributed to Singapore’s strong emphasis on modelling mathematical problems with visual aids; using coloured blocks to represent fractions or ratios, for example.

We hope to share the best of Singapore education with the world. In educating our students in Singapore, we seek to achieve our Desired Outcomes of Education so that our students are future-ready, have a strong sense of national identity, and are equipped to contribute in a globalized world. We aspire to bring out the best in our students so that they are empowered to live life to the fullest, contribute to, and care for their community and nation. We also aim to enable our students to develop their interests to pursue their passions and fulfil their aspirations.
