I am looking for the conceptual/visualisation way of tackling the algebra problems . I found that Singapore Maths caters this need. What are the good sources for Singapore Maths - any online classes for Singapore Maths. My aim is to mentally solve any word problems - algebra so that I score high marks in the competitive exams like GRE. Also, This way I can crack the algebra problems visually rather than x, y and z.

  • $\begingroup$ To be clear: You are asking about curricular materials - especially those associated with "Singapore Math" - that use a conceptual/visual approach to help students become better solvers of GRE-level algebra word problems? $\endgroup$ – Benjamin Dickman Oct 12 '14 at 6:39

    $\begingroup$ Just to point out that if it were "authentic", it would be Singapore Maths (British spelling). Also, in Singapore, Maths is pronounced (mispronounced?) as "matz" (so quite different from either the American or British pronunciation). $\endgroup$ – Kenny LJ Jul 15 '15 at 16:37

You asked about online classes for Singapore math. I realize you may no longer need this info, but thought someone browsing the questions might appreciate it.

I recommend the courses at ed2go There are two classes one for 1st-6th and one for 6th-9th. The courses are given repeatedly for 6 weeks cycles and are under $100 They will break down all the steps needed to problem solve with model drawing from the simplest to fractions, ratios, percents, and more.

I took this course before I started teaching Singapore math and it really helped.
