What is Maths No Problem?

What is Singapore Maths? What is Maths: no Problem!?

Singapore maths is the incorporation of established international research into a highly effective teaching approach, with its emphasis on teaching pupils to solve problems.

Based on recommendations from notable experts such as Jerome Bruner, Richard Skemp, Jean Piaget, Lev Vygotsky, and Zoltan Dienes, Singapore maths is an amalgamation of global ideas delivered as a highly-effective programme of teaching methods and resources.

Following their poor performance in international league tables in the early 1980’s, the effectiveness of this approach is demonstrated by Singapore’s position at the top of the international benchmarks such as TIMSS and PIRLS and explains why their programme is now used in over 40 countries including the United Kingdom and the United States.

Since 2007 Maths – No Problem! has helped hundreds of schools and parents teach the world-class methods from Singapore and we can use our expertise to help your school too. The Maths — No Problem! Primary Series was assessed by the DfE’s expert panel, which judged that it alone met the core criteria for a high-quality textbook to support teaching for mastery.
