Ottimmo Math:Inspired by Singapore Math

Ottimmo’s philosophy is not only to improve test scores and classroom grades, but to provide children, grades K-6, with the tools to succeed in upper level math including pre-algebra, algebra, and geometry; therefore, we employ the Singapore Method. The Singapore Math Curriculum focuses on hands-on learning, pictorial representations, followed by an abstract phase. This three-step process encourages children to learn “why” instead of just focusing on the “how” of solving math problems which enhances their overall problem-solving skills that are effective in other subjects, as well.
