What are Singapore Math strategies and how do they fit into common core expectations and current and/or new materials? The day will be spent exploring activities and games that model the Singapore Math philosophy. Time will be spent focusing on the four operations beginning with "ten-ness' in Kindergarten and moving up to division in intermediate grades. Strategies will be presented that are grounded in place value and scaffolded to allow students multiple entry points into addition, subtraction, multiplication and division. Participants will gain a firm foundation about the concrete-pictorial-abstract approach to teaching.
