Singapore Math Learning approach developed to instill mathematical thinking at every stage. Through this, students can solve formidable problems early. They learn Algebra without using the word Algebra. It was developed in Singapore in the late 1970’s-early 1980’s, and was implemented in mid-1980’s.
