Singapore Math a ppt description
Singapore is not the easiest method to teach but it allows students to visualize their math. The purpose of Singapore Math is to teach kids how to think. It deals with part to whole relationships. Slides #3 and 4 are fraction problems. The first problem deals with a denominator of 5 and the second has a denominator of 10. The part to whole relationship is key. This PowerPoint will not teach Singapore math it only provides examples.
Note: My philosophy for slide shows. Long slide shows become very boring very quick. I use slide shows to model a concept. Because I teach the same lesson multiply times there are certain things I like to stress. If it is on a slide I don’t forget it. I like to use animations to hold the students attention. I normally will have a vocabulary slide for students to copy into their notebook. Hence the “white note taking icon” on the vocabulary slides. I generally will have two avatars in the bottom of the slide to guide the students through the slides. The avatars will ask questions to one another or corny jokes that students don’t understand. My students enjoy reading what is on the callouts of the avatars this allows for more interaction within the classroom. At the end of my slide show I like to have exit questions or a summary slide. If you purchase this please adapt it to your classroom. Last slide as my e-mail address, if you find errors regards how small please e-mail me and inform me so I can make corrections.
