Our Story

We believe the highest quality math education should be accessible to all. Our commitment to this mission began 25 years ago when we introduced the U.S. to Singapore math, and it remains our guiding principle as we continually develop Singapore Math® material.

Our story began when we moved from Singapore to the U.S. in 1997, and found our first grade daughter’s public school math program lacking. We began to supplement her education with the math curriculum used at her previous school in Singapore. Through this process, we realized that the Singapore math method was uniquely effective and that it would be useful to other parents and teachers in our community. We started selling the original Singapore Math program, Primary Mathematics, from our home in 1998 to share this powerful approach.

Since those early years, Singapore math has become an established part of national and international conversations about math education. We’ve continually improved and expanded our programs to suit the diverse and ever-evolving needs of students and educators. 

One thing that will never change is our core belief that all students deserve an excellent math education. We know that a foundation in Singapore math creates the conditions for future success, and our goal is to make the finest math education in the world available to as many students as possible through approachable pricing and engaging material.

Thank you for helping us spread math mastery!
