Team Classes Compete in Regional and National Mathematics Competitions
Why Our Students Join Math Competitions
Some of our classes are competition classes which compete in regional and national math competitions as teams. The goals for the team classes is to cultivate interests in solving challenging problems while nurturing their logic reasoning and critical thinking skills.
In recent years, our teams have achieved excellent results.
2021-2022 Team Pythagorean Division
Our Grade 3, 8 and 9 teams are Regional Winners in the CML 2021-2022 competition season! Massachusetts is in Region 1, which is our New England region. It includes: CT, MA, ME, NH, VT, RI.
2020-2021 Team Euclidean Division
Our Grade 4, 5, 6 and 9 teams are Regional Winners in the CML 2020-2021 competition season! Massachusetts is in Region 1, which is our New England region. It includes: CT, MA, ME, NH, VT, RI.

Balanced and Rigorous Curriculum
Why Singapore Math
We adopt a balanced math curriculum based on the Concrete-Pictorial-Abstract Singapore math pedagogy. Using strong visualization and modeling, we emphasize Logic Reasoning, Early Algebraic Thinking, and Problem Solving. Our goal is to establish a strong mathematical foundation in our students so that they would enjoy challenging math tasks.
Abstract concept is first introduced using physical, interactive concrete objects, e.g. counting objects
Students use visual representations of concrete objects to model problems, making them easier to comprehend
Students understand concepts at a symbolic level, e.g. using symbols for mathematical operations and algebra
Math Team Classes
Small Group Size
Our small group format promotes active discussions and students are encouraged to explain their thinking.
Qualified and Caring Teachers
Our teachers are trained in the Singapore math pedagogy and are key to creating a supportive and nurturing learning environment.
Our students compete as a team. In class they work collaboratively to help each other sharpen their problem-solving skills.
Typical Problem For Grades 3 and 4
This is a typical problem 3rd grade students will encounter in the summer program. Instead of using abstract algebra, we use a heuristic call Bar-Modeling to help the students visualize and break down the problem into parts that are more accessible. Building on this success, 5th and 6th graders solves the same problem with system of linear equations.
For my son, the additional reinforcement of math principles that Singapore Math is so important for his memory, processing ability, and math confidence. Ms. Jean is a terrific teachers who my son both respects and genuinely enjoys learning from. I wish she was in his classroom every day!
– Parent of 2nd Grader
We like the small class size, and teachers providing feedback about my child when necessary especially when I can also help, CML problems and meets, the active involvement of the owner Kar Hwee, which has maintained and improved the quality of instruction over the years!
– Parent of 4th and 7th Graders
Love the practical application of math in the problems presented. It’s not just about learning how to compute a calculation, but how to think through what the word problem is asking and how to apply math (and which tools) to the solution.
