The Singapore Math company was founded on the belief that students and educators should have access to the highest quality math curriculum. The Singapore Math® method was introduced to the U.S. and beyond (U.K., Middle East, Australia) almost twenty years ago, and they remain committed to sourcing and creating the best educational products available.
Dawn and Jeffrey Thomas started Singapore Math in their garage in 1998 shortly after moving back to the U.S. from Singapore, where their daughter attended local schools through the first grade. They were dissatisfied with the math materials used at her new elementary school and supplemented her schoolwork with the textbooks they brought from Singapore. They soon realized that they had an excellent resource on hand and should share it with other parents and educators.
Interest in the products that they introduced to the American market grew steadily through successful school adoptions and word-of-mouth. Since those early years, the Singapore Math® method has become an established part of the national and international conversation about math education.
We are proud to be using this approach in Kindergarten – 6th grade. In 7th and 8th grade, we use Pre-Algebra(Larson), Algebra or Geometry depending upon the academic ability of the student. Grades 7 and 8 are split into developmental groups of standard and accelerated.
