Education Reformation is the Australian distributor for Singapore maths programs. There are several Singapore maths programs to choose from, so please read below for information on the one that best suits your needs. You can read more about Singapore maths in our article about planning your maths curriculum here.

NSPM is the current edition (2nd) used in Singapore schools today and follows the Singapore Ministry of Education 2013 Syllabus. It has full colour illustrations and is the closest equivalent to Australian maths programs.
This older Singapore maths program is going out of print. Levels 1 and 2 are no longer available and all other levels will be no longer available as of the end of 2019. Please check product pages for stock availability until then.
Alternative programs are Primary Maths US 3rd Edition or New Syllabus Primary Maths.
US editions follow the same sequence of topics as the 3rd edition (above). It teaches both metric and US Imperial weights, measures, and American money. Singapore and US terminologies and names are inter-changed throughout but concepts, skills and actual numeric and word problems are the same as the 3rd Edition. The US Edition uses US currency, American spelling, terms and conventions (e.g. commas for thousands).

Pupil’s Book (textbook)
Though the workbooks are sufficient for a good maths education, Singapore maths programs don’t stop at the workbooks. There are several extras you can choose from to help reinforce, give extra practice or advance your child with problem solving and word problems, etc.
It is highly recommended that new students or those switching from another maths program complete one or more placement tests to determine proper placement as Singapore maths programs are often further along in their skill levels than Australian programs.
NOTE: Each test is an “exit” test for that level. If the test score is 80% and above, it is a good indicator the student has the skills to go on to the next level. If however, a student consistently misses problems from the same concept, it is recommended that you start at that level no matter what the overall score is. If a test score is below 50%, re-test the student at the next lower level. There is no time limit recommended for these tests, but a general guideline would be to allow one hour for the Primary Levels and several hours for the Secondary Levels. ** In math programs from Singapore, the use of “Elementary” refers to “the basics” of higher math (algebra, geometry, trigonometry), it is not referencing Primary Grades (PK to 6).
