Chinese Mathematics in Singapore
Today more and more often we hear about stories of math geniuses from China. The world is never too surprised with the general outstanding mathematical ability of China students. In the PISA 2012, an international survey focused on math, students from Shanghai China achieved the highest score among representatives from other 44 countries. So what really makes them so good at math? Are they really just geniuses? The answer is ‘no’. In fact, there are actually ways to explore into the Chinese way of math teaching and borrow from their most essence to improve understanding and achieve excellence in mathematics for local students.
Learning mathematics in the Chinese way
China has a different thinking style in math teaching, focusing more on the deduction and understanding of math concepts, not just memorizing or formularization. This is very important in the period of math enlightenment and builds a better foundation for easier absorption of concepts and application of math knowledge in the further studies.
Furthermore, China’s education system requires students to be well-trained on how to tackle tests and examinations, and equips them with more developed and efficient practice methods to strengthen their ability in performing in math tests, which prepares them for further challenges in this subject in future.
Learning mathematics in Chinese language
Living in Singapore, a multicultural society, the ability to use multiple languages in life and work is undoubtedly beneficial. Especially when Singapore is working closer with China’s economy today, being able to master Chinese language absolutely adds chances for individuals to apply, communicate, and even grab more employment opportunities.
Moreover, in terms of better learning experience of math, using the Chinese language makes it easier to understand many terminologies and concepts. Unlike mathematical terms in English which may not mean anything in the first glance, Chinese terms are more adapted for better understanding of their definitions, which aids in easier memorization.
Learning math in Chinese also gives greater efficiency, as students can improve their Chinese linguistic skills at the same time under this kind of learning environment. In the process of learning Chinese language, students can also borrow the logic and analytical skills from math, helping them improve their grammar, expression and general familiarity with the Chinese language. In class there will also be more chances for them to practice oral, listening and comprehension skills. Killing two birds with one stone is the key, helping students train their brains and achieve efficient learning.
In general, learning math in Chinese is still a rather creative idea in Singapore. It allows students to experience a unique learning experience, bringing out more fun and triggering students’ potential interest in math. We all know that interest is the best teacher. To be good at learning math, it is better to love it first, and to love something, it is important to know at least how it works, to feel that it really makes sense, and this is what we are striving for in the method of learning math in Chinese.
