I heard that Utah had adopted the Singapore Math curriculum. Can anyone enlighten me as to how this came about (if it's true) and how it is working?

I took an online workshop on Singapore fractions and was very impressed.

Thanks
Bill As best I know, some charter schools were using it and having success. The state legislature education committee got interested. After some presentations they allocated a sum of money to be granted out to teachers/schools that would adopt the program.

C.S. Yes, some schools in Granite School District in Salt Lake City are trying Singapore Math. A new school, Diamond Ridge Elem. is starting this year with this program. As far as I have heard they are very impressed as well. You may want to look up the District or that school.

Ann Marie Somone uploaded a great file that gives an overview of the Singapre Math approach and some examples of the techniques to the mathmatters3-4 website. You have to join the group to download it but there is no charge to do that. The booklet is NOT copyrighted-it was published by a school district that no longer has it available on their own website.
