The Shipley Summer Math Camp provides a balanced math program, with an emphasis on the Singaporean Pedagogy embedded in the program Math in Focus (MIF). This research-based program balances conceptual understanding, visual learning, skill building and problem solving. Concepts are taught with a concrete-pictorial-abstract learning progression through the use of manipulatives and real-world, hands-on experiences. The summer math camp will include problem solving, as well as review and practice of math skills and concepts.
A low student-teacher ratio ensures small group and individualized instruction. 

Why Learn the Singapore Way?

Students don’t just learn the algorithms. They learn how and why the algorithms work. Students dig deeper and think mathematically. The concrete- pictorial-abstract teaching philosophy helps students develop a conceptual understanding of what they are doing, rather than just racing to the answer. Students are thinking and talking about math strategies. If
the teacher talks the students will listen, but if the students talk, they will learn. Our goal is for students to do well because they understand the math material at a deeper level. Good visualizing and questioning brings lessons to life. What do you see? What shapes are there? How do you know? How many ways are there? Can there be two correct answers?
