Yan’s One Minute Math Blog

Started in February 2013, the “Yan’s One Minute Math Blog” gives a quick glance at what is happening in mathematics education in Singapore. It looks at common problem-solving heuristics and strategies (e.g., Singapore model method, Stack method, and Sakamoto method), favored by math educators in Singapore, which have proved to be key contributing factors to Singapore’s mathematical success, particularly its high ranking in TIMSS and PISA.

“Yan’s One Minute Math Blog” also aims to touch on some lighter side of Singapore mathematics education, in particular at common mathematical errors and blunders committed by local students, teachers, editors, and writers.

A sister blog to “Yan’s One Minute Math Blog” is the Singapore Math blog.
