Authentic Singapore Mathematics, published by Marshall Cavendish Education in Singapore and distributed exclusively in the United States by Houghton Mifflin Harcourt.
The only U.S. program based on the most widely used math curriculum in Singapore today.
Math in Focus® is based on the framework developed by the Singapore Ministry of Education. It draws on best practices from around the world and highlights problem solving as the focus of mathematical learning.
A key differentiator for Singapore math is its focus on attitudes and metacognition. In order for students to excel, they must develop positive attitudes about math, have the confidence to persevere, and develop the ability to monitor their own thinking.
The research base used to guide the development of the Common Core State Standards cited Singapore's pedagogy as one of their key research models. Singapore math's effective framework parallels the big ideas in the Common Core.
