Singapore's Primary Mathematics program is an internationally renowned elementary mathematics curriculum, producing top international results year after year. Is it really that much better than other curricula? Is it really possible that teaching arithmetic well is difficult? Can pedagogy matter for something as simple as addition? Yes, yes, and yes, and this talk will show you why. Meant for both parents and educators, this talk will explain the features of Singapore's Primary Mathematics and why it is producing top results. You will learn the core features of solid math education, focusing on the knowledge needed year over year to prepare for algebra. The speaker for this event is Allison Coates, executive director of MSMI. Ms. Coates holds an S.B. in mathematics from MIT, and an M.S. in computer science from University of California, Berkeley.The talk is approximately 90 minutes, beginning at 9 AM, with time for questions. It is free of charge, but registration is required.
