IN A recent Singapore Straits Times story, ThinkingMath lead panelist Ammiel Wan shared how he wanted his two sons, aged five and seven, to think critically. This provided the inspiration for the 2006 teacher's guide, Challenging Maths Made Easy published by the Ministry of Education's Teacher's Network. Subsequently, in order to benefit students, onSponge collaborated with him and a panel of consultants to develop the ThinkingMath programme that came online in 2009. This programme for primary school students comprises hardcopy books, electronic and interactive learning.
PRIMARY school users of thinkingMath books participated in a workshop to help them better apply the key strategies used in the books. All seats were sold and we apologise to many on the waitlist. Children from primary 3 to 6 attended the sessions held at Goldhill Plaza in the first half of the June school holidays.
