Math Group Lessons

Aspire Learning Academy offers two primary streams of math support through group lessons:

  • Core Singapore Math Programming
  • Advanced Singapore Math programming

Individual students will be assessed and placed in the group which best reflects their working level for math relative to our Singapore Math curriculum. This ensures that all students can feel empowered to learn collaboratively, take on challenges as a classroom, and excel to new heights as a team!

Core Singapore Math

Following our Singapore Math® curriculum, students in our Singapore Math group lessons will build a strong foundation of numeracy concepts to help them excel in the classroom and beyond.

Two of the primary goals of Singapore Math® are to teach students to mastery and to teach students flexible thinking. In our Singapore Math Groups, specially trained teachers keep these two goals at the forefront of their lessons by helping students attain mastery of all concepts and equipping them with a diverse toolkit to  approach new problems flexibly.

Each of our Core group lessons are tailored to a specific Singapore Math level, ranging from level K to level 6, which translates to grades K through 7 for B.C. standards for mathematics.

  • Children ranging from kindergarten to grade 7 will benefit greatly from these programs
  • Students require an academic assessment for placement in the appropriate group setting
