It addresses the practical needs of teachers and students by incorporating both thinking and procedural learning - core aspects of problem sum solving. This learning with thinking walks pupils through the process: understand the problem context first before looking at alternative representations/relations based on problem statements. Tested and proven on different ability learners in a top school over three years, this thinkingMath™ approach resulted in improved PSLE distinction rates from 59% to 79.4%.
