Great book on teaching math the Singapore way. The book goes into detail on how to introduce and model adding, subtracting, multiplication and division to students. The model gets away from paper and pencil work and rather looks at the concepts and strategies needed to understand numbers.
For those who wish to learn more about the Singapore method of mathematics, this book is a helpful resource. The author provides an explanation of each computation strategy for each of the four operations. Along with an explanation, the author provides a guided conversation to assist teachers in introducing the new method.
