Hello Forum, I have been asked to research the Singapore Math's method's for learning Math's. For those of you who are not familiar with this basically Singapore's students have a proven track record of learning maths successfully, and a lot of this success is accredited to very creative and abstract approach to teaching the subject. I am a teacher in a Further Education College so I am aware of the challenges in experimenting with different ways of teaching the same subjects. Personally I like to have teacher books and accompanying documents that link schemes of work and learning aims and objectives to the students text. I'd really like to know what you think makes a good text book for Primary/Secondary students. 1) What makes a good maths text book? 2) What are you looking for when adaopting a series of texts for your learners? If you can take 5 minutes to think about what makes a good text for your learners it would be a massive help. The 'Singapore Maths Method' has already been implement in some private schoole here, but I am trying to think about overcoming the barriers to teaching this way in mainstream schools.
