Singapore Mathematics refers to the math textbooks from the small Asian country of Singapore. Since 1995, it has been one of the top performing countries in mathematics in the TIMSS study. Their success is not just due to the quality of the books, but to the strong mathematical preparation of their elementary teachers. Worcester State University Professor of Mathematics Richard Bisk, Ph.D., has provided content-based professional development for teachers using these books since 2000. His work focuses on improving the mathematical understanding of teachers and is valuable regardless of the textbook series that the teachers are using.
