"How to Use the Best Strategies from SINGAPORE MATH to Strengthen Your Math Instruction"

presented by Cassandra Turner

Saturday, April 9, 2011, 9 AM - 4 PM 

at CoCo Coworking and Collaborative Space in downtown St. Paul

Specifically designed for teachers of kindergarten through sixth grade, this workshop presents an introduction to Singapore Math strategies that will give you the tools, techniques and motivation to incorporate the best of Singapore math into your current program. Using these extraordinary ideas, you will boost your students’ confidence as math learners, significantly improve their math skills and find that teaching mathematics can be the most rewarding part of your day.

The progression of lessons in Singapore Math, from the concrete to the pictorial to the abstract, results in students who truly understand not only how to “do math,” but why math works the way it does. The National Math Advisory Panel recently named Singapore in its report nine times as a country to which the United States should look for cohesive math instruction that results in mathematically confident, competent students. Throughout this fast-paced seminar, participants will be focusing on the easy-to-teach and easy-to-learn techniques that make the use of Singapore math strategies an outstanding way to ensure solid student achievement in mathematics.

Cassy Turner is an outstanding teacher known for her high energy, practical and engaging seminars chock-full of ideas that teachers can use immediately to implement Singapore math strategies into their existing math curriculum and classroom. Cassy has taught Singapore math for years and has been involved in training teachers in Singapore math strategies both nationally and internationally. She is the co-author of a 40-hour training Singapore Math training program approved by the California Department of Education covering grades K-6 (standards edition), and a consultant and trainer for more than 25 North American schools that have implemented Singapore Math.
