S.A.M, or Seriously Addictive Mathematics, is a Mathematics Learning Program from Singapore, with a unique Mathematics curriculum designed for students from 4 to 12 years of age.Our curriculum is primarily modelled after the Singapore Mathematics program, which is one of the most successful in the world, according to the TIMSS (Trends in International Maths & Science Study) survey, since 1995*.
We developed over 30,000 pages of meticulously designed self learning worksheets with a unique step up approach, covering everything your child needs to know in order to excel in Mathematics at school. We also designed a comprehensive S.A.M Training system to ensure that our Trainers deliver a quality learning experience for your child.Research has shown that Early Exposure to maths concepts and skills will enhance your child’s confidence in maths in their later years. SAM’s Holistic Approach to Mathematics combines Classroom Learning and Worksheets Practice to give your child an early advantage in Singapore Maths to stay ahead of their cohort.
These days, a student requires more than just Rote learning to excel in Maths. At S.A.M, we focus on skills such as Critical Thinking, Heuristics, Logical Reasoning, Metacognitive Understanding, Modelling Techniques and Situational Word Problems, amongst others. Collectively, we term this as A Holistic Approach to learning Mathematics.
Throughout our program, from the way Trainers engage students in the Classroom, to the way questions are phrased and how solutions are presented in our Worksheets, we adopt this Holistic Approach. By the end of our program, S.A.M students will be well equipped with an array of skills to confidently embrace future challenges in the world of numbers.
Based on Singapore Maths, SAM’s Award Winning Curriculum and Pedagogy is the most relevant and most comprehensive Maths enrichment program available today. With over 30,000 pages of carefully crafted thinking worksheets, and combined with motivating and creative classroom experiences, the SAM Approach makes learning fun and interesting. Students learn at their own pace through an individual based Step-Up process that is thoughtfully prescribed by a qualified SAM Trainer.
Singapore Maths is reputed to be one of the most successful national programs in the world, according to the TIMSS (Trends in International Maths & Science Study) survey, since 1995. The Singapore Maths curriculum and pedagogy is unique and revolutionary in its approach towards the subject. It is very effective as a stand alone curriculum or a supplement to an existing school maths program.
Certified S.A.M Trainers engage students with dialogue, probing questions, props, games and a healthy dose of encouragement. The idea is to make learning fun and memorable through an array of interactive experiences.
During this engagement time, the Trainer also takes the opportunity to accesses how the student is coping with his work, his rate of progress and his level of motivation. Qualified S.A.M Trainers understand that their role is not just to instil Mathematical knowledge in students, but to also inculcate the right learning attitude and self discipline in them, in preparation for their future.
We provide a coaching pedagogy in the Classroom Experience, where your child is encouraged to discover their solutions rather than to be told what to do. We also use Concrete examples through props and games to reinforce mathematical concepts.
At SAM, we train children to develop an attitude of self-discovery and learning at a young age. Our trainers ask leading questions rather than spoon-feed children. A habit of self-learning and discovery transcends beyond the subject of Mathematics – it will greatly benefit their learning of other subjects as well.
The Worksheet Experience engages each student individually in their own designated time for study at home. This regime instills self discipline and independent learning, both necessary skills required in all manner of learning, not just Mathematics. S.A.M worksheets are designed with narrative instructions and relevant examples before each topic commences. The volume of work and level of difficulty are all carefully calibrated to ensure that learning remains challenging yet fun for every student at S.A.M.
Your child learns through practice worksheets, in class and at home. Our worksheets are designed to hone the most relevant skills and methods for your child to excel in Singapore Maths. The pace of learning is specially calibrated for your child.
