We believe it’s time we stop just focusing on the “how” when it comes to children’s education—getting them to fully understand the “why” behind every Math problem, Science concept, and reading material is actually key to helping them make it to the top.
The Singapore education system is testament to this: As it puts a premium on conceptual understanding, it helps children learn deeper and cultivates excellent problem-solving abilities that go beyond the four walls of the classroom or the parameters of a homeschool setup. Consistently ranked number 1 at the Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development’s Programme for International Student Assessment, which gauges the maths, science, and reading mastery of 15-year-olds from over 70 countries in order to be prepared for real-life situations in the adult world, there’s no doubt the island-state is doing it right.
It’s time the other nations in the world catch up—and we’re here to be your ally. Singapore Learning Systems brings the best learning materials for a wide array of subjects, anchored on the solid educational foundation of the world’s top ranking education system.

Why Singapore Math Is A Cut Above: The Singapore Math Three-Step Learning Process
Concrete. Students learn Math by handling objects first, lining them up in a row then understanding basic arithmetic operations by adding and removing items from each row.
Pictorial. Students learn to draw bar models, different sizes of rectangular bars, representing different quantities, which helps them visualize answers to arithmetic operations.
Abstract. Students then proceed to learning how to solve math problems the traditional way, using numbers and symbols.
Through this process, students are able to have a deeper understanding of problem solving and a better grasp of the steps and tools they need to overcome math hurdles quickly.
