You've decided you want to implement the #1 program in the world. You've seen how effective a Singapore math education can be based on its research-based strategies that produce students who often perform well above their grade level peers. As you begin looking through your materials, you may realize that this curriculum looks a bit different. Maybe you even begin to question your decision and wonder if this is the right curriculum for your family. You might even start to wonder:
How you will teach math in a way you didn't learn? What are bar models? How are number bonds used? This may not look like your traditional math program.
How will this look when teaching one student? The Teacher's Guides reference group work and conversation. This may not fit your homeschool model.
How will you give this lesson the time and attention it deserves when you have several children to teach? A textbook lesson lists 45-60 minutes. This can seem impossible with multiple children and subjects to teach.
You are not alone with these questions. We cannot teach a homeschool student in the same way. Before we can solve the problem, let's tackle two reasons why it HAS to be different.
Singapore teachers do not use Teacher's Guides. Each teacher is highly trained while attending university and can apply the teaching strategies necessary to make it successful just from the Student Book. That means the Teacher's Guides provided are created for American educators to sum up the teaching strategy.
A Singapore lesson is designed for classroom collaboration. The strategies provided are created around classroom conversation and problem-solving. Students solve problems while bouncing ideas off of each other and work together to tackle challenges. Home Instructor Guides were created to modify that lesson approach in an easy way.
So how do you make this work as a homeschool educator? The truth is: There is not a teaching model that specifically aligns Singapore practices with a homeschool teaching method . There is not a method that takes the research-based strategies that made Singapore a global phenomenon on both the TIMMS and PISA tests beyond the Home Instructor's Guide.
Now home educators all over the world have the 4C Math Mastery Model for Homeschool Success. Created by a math specialist, author, and homeschool parent, this hybrid model applies the Singapore method that is proven to work to your specific homeschool setting by combining two key components.
Imagine having a Singapore math specialist come beside you to help you plan your lessons and show you how each lesson was designed to be taught. This math specialist will show you how to weed through the content and zero in on the strategies that will help your student master the concept while loving math. She will show you how to encourage your student to talk about the lesson and stretch your student's thinking. Then, she will provide you with over 500 videos that can be shown to your student to further support your homeschool instruction. This is what is waiting for you with a Math with Purpose Video Library Subscription.
