Bringing the Proven Pedagogy of Singapore Math to the Canadian Classroom


The My Math Path Story

My Math Path 1–8 is based on the Singapore Math approach, which focuses on mastery of a limited number of concepts at a time using a purposeful sequence of topics.

Using the framework developed by the Singapore Ministry of Education, My Math Path 1–8 places problem solving at the heart of mathematical learning. In addition to focusing on skills, concepts, and processes, the Framework also emphasizes the need for students to develop positive attitudes towards math, have the confidence to persevere, and develop the ability to monitor their own thinking.

My Math Path 1–8 relies heavily on visualization, model drawing and the concrete-pictorial abstract approach to solve problems. This balanced math series focuses on math fact fluency or math fundamentals to give students the tools and confidence they need to solve problems.

Building Mathematical Understanding

Numbers and symbols can be confusing when students don’t have a grasp of what they actually mean. Singapore Math teaches concepts using a Concrete-Pictorial-Abstract learning progression to anchor learning in meaningful, hands-on experiences.
