How It Works
My Math Videos© provides you with a certified math instructor to fit the needs of any curriculum you choose.
Each Singapore Math® video lesson is taught as if your student has a live teacher, and is aligned to several different 1st, 2nd, 3rd and 4th grade Singapore Math® curriculums as well as to the Texas Teks and Common Core standards (5th grade coming soon).

About the methods used to teach math using Singapore strategies
The nation of Singapore created their math curriculum in the 1980’s at a time when their Gross Domestic Product was very low. The country learned that the best way to increase their GDP was to educate their population in math and science. After founders traveled the word researching the best math practices, the Concrete-Pictorial-Abstract approach (C-P-A) was developed into a problem solving and strategy method of teaching math.
Singapore Math® is not just a method of teaching, but a strategy to teach our students to think like a mathematician. Through the CPA approach, we instruct our students using manipulatives and pictures so they understand the concepts before they learn the algorithms. Our students learn the “why” behind every concept taught, which empowers them to figure out the algorithm on their own because it starts to make sense intellectually and not just because they've memorized formulas and facts.
With the Sinagpore Method, students are able to problem solve and talk about math beyond what most adults can do. Using mental math strategies, they begin to learn math in a whole new light. For math facts, they always have a strategy to fall back on in case they get stuck. Math Facts are cemented in the student's mind not with rote memorization, but through the application of strategies.
Singapore Math® is not just a method of teaching, but a strategy to teach our students to think like a mathematician.
Right now our video lessons are aligned to the Dimensions Math books, levels 1 through 4. However these videos can be used with any curriculum and those specific alignments will be coming soon to this website.
Our monthly subscription program at only $20 per month, gives you full access to all grade level lessons, with the option to cancel anytime with a 30-day notice.
