  • Children who need support to improve their numeracy skills

The program was created by Samuel Chia, Lau Chin Loong and a panel of Singaporean Educators. Based on the world-renowned Singapore Maths methodology, the S.A.M program takes a two-pronged approach; to instil discipline through self-learning, and a holistic classroom experience.

Some of the techniques that make S.A.M so effective are:

Concrete Pictorial Abstract (CPA) approach

Students engage in fun activities using concrete experiences to connect mathematical concepts with real-life experiences (Concrete). The second step is to relate their new found knowledge to pictures (Pictorial) and lastly to progress to the use of numbers and formulas (Abstract).

Step-up or Scaffolding method

The scaffolding approach uses techniques to move students progressively towards better understanding and increased independence in the learning process. It ensures students master each topic before moving on to the next.
