What Parents Say

S.A.M provides a conducive environment where Tyler can maximise his potential in maths. S.A.M trainers keep Tyler well engaged which simulates his strong interest in math and increases his desire to learn more. He reacts with enthusiasm when he is challenged and he is motivated to learn a new topic. At S.A.M, both his strengths and weaknesses are supported, allowing him to excel in math at his own pace. We appreciate and commend S.A.M!”

Mother of Tyler (10 years old)​

Grace did not enjoy math, struggled with math thinking and lacked confidence. At S.A.M, the learning plan was tailored for her, the worksheets are good and the trainers are patient. S.A.M has helped Grace build up her math abilities and confidence. She has moved from middle band to top band at school and is excelling in math. S.A.M has shown her different ways to think about math problems and she is more positive in her approach to learning.

Mrs Elena
Mother of Grace (10 years old)​

Beverly was good in math in grade 1 but grade 2 was a steep learning curve for her because of multiple-step word problems especially model drawings. S.A.M trainers taught her how to analyze word problems systematically, draw the correct models or use other methods to accurately solve word problems. She got perfect scores for her recent math tests and she is in love with math all over again!

Mrs Kelly
Mother of Beverly (8 years old)

Trey used to lose focus easily and was scared of word problems. He was not doing well in math so I sent him to S.A.M hoping to help him improve. S.A.M trainers were patient with him and helped him build a good math foundation. It exceeded my initial expectation – his test scores went from 50+ in grade 3 to 80+ in grade 4! More importantly, he has become confident in math. S.A.M is the best decision I’ve made this year!

Mrs Winnie
Mother of Trey (11 years old)

Morgan was already quite proficient in math and she got even better at S.A.M. She learnt different ways to solve word problems and her speed, accuracy and confidence in math have improved tremendously. S.A.M trainers are constantly encouraging her. Also, S.A.M worksheets are very well designed and she looks forward to completing them. I am so happy to see Morgan excited to go to S.A.M every week!

Mrs Adelene
Mother of Morgan (11 years old)

Jaydon was struggling with math in grade 4 and was reluctant to do math problems. S.A.M trainers take the time to help him understand and fully grasp each topic before getting him to attempt questions in increasing levels of difficulty. The dedication and passion of S.A.M trainers are unparalleled. My child has developed confidence and passion for math. It’s now his favourite subject!

Mrs Janice
Mother of Jaydon (11 years old)

Charlaine enjoys the fun lessons at S.A.M and their heuristics lessons have honed her thinking skills. She can analyze and solve word problems and present her answers in a concise manner. I am very impressed that my grade 2 child can solve tricky math questions without the need to memorize anything. The ability to understand how math works is very valuable and S.A.M has helped her to develop this skill.

Singapore Math Heuristics: Draw a Table, Make Suppositions and Use Before-After Concept

Heuristics, in the context of problem-solving, are a set of strategies to help students solve mathematical problems. Although problem-solving is by and large the process of working towards a goal to which a solution may not be immediately present, it is important that problem solvers (or students) are not only aware of what they are […]

Singapore Math Heuristics: Solve Part of the Problem, Simplify the Problem and Work Backwards

Problem-solving in mathematics helps children develop reasoning and communication skills that are transferrable and important life skills. Reasoning is required on three levels when children solve word problems. First, they use reasoning to recognise what information is provided or missing. Then, they use reasoning to figure out what information they need to find. Finally, they […]

Singapore Math Heuristics: Make A Systematic List, Guess And Check, Restate The Problem In Another Way

The skills children pick up in math are indispensable; they can be applied to other academic subjects and to solve real-world problems in their daily lives and future work. The Singapore Math curriculum focuses on problem solving. Through problem solving, children develop thinking skills such as creative thinking and critical thinking. When children analyse math […]

Singapore Math Heuristics: Act It Out, Draw A Diagram, Look For Patterns
