Maths SMART series is developed to cover comprehensively the learning outcomes of the latest Cambridge Primary curriculum framework.


Maths SMART builds a strong foundation of the subject through the use of wellresearched and sound pedagogical principles. Adopting the popular Concrete > Pictorial > Abstract approach widely used in the Singapore mathematics curriculum, pupils are introduced to new concepts through concrete manipulatives and engaging pictorials before they are led to see their abstract symbolic representations. This allows pupils to have a deeper understanding of key mathematical concepts, thus motivating them to learn.


Content is also clearly structured and spiralled across the levels to ensure a gradual buildup and review of skills as pupils progress up the grades. At the same time, emphasis is given on developing pupils’ problemsolving skills, critical thinking, as well as other 21st Century Skills.


Maths SMART also develops pupils’ exam confidence. A wide variety of practice questions are provided at frequent and appropriate junctures. This ensures that there is immediate reinforcement of concepts and sufficient practice to enable pupils to attain mastery, thus preparing them well for the Cambridge Primary Checkpoint tests.
