Singapore Math subscribes strongly to a spiral approach whereby each topic is revisited and introduced in increasing depth from one level to the next to enable students to consolidate the concepts and skills learned and to develop these concept and skills further.
In other words, mathematics is viewed as an integrated whole with increasing depth of sophistication and complexity. Learning of these abstract mathematics concepts is concretized through the use of simultaneous multiple representations, including hands-on activities with concrete materials, to help students to make sense of the mathematics. In addition, Singapore Math places an equal emphasis on the development of a positive disposition towards learning mathematics, a deep conceptual understanding, an efficient and effective retrieval of basic mathematics facts and procedure, as well as a flexible, critical, and creative approach towards problem-solving and problem-posing.
