FOLLOWING the success of this year's Singapore Math Learning Festival held in Crowne Plaza, the Galileo Enrichment Learning Program once again leads the way in bringing fresh ideas and exciting innovations that school administrators, teachers and parents can use in their classroom and in the confines of the house.

This time, the Galileo Enrichment Learning Program is bringing this learning conference closer to the educators and parents in the south, as it will host the Singapore Math Learning Festival on May 25, 2013 at the Ateneo de Davao University in Matina, Davao City.

Singapore Math focuses on developing critical thinking through mastery of foundational skills. It teaches students a systematic way of learning seemingly difficult math concepts through child-friendly terms and relatable experiences.

This complements the K-12 curriculum, as it strengthens key concepts and provides opportunities to apply it in daily activities as well as in other subjects.

There will be concurrent learning sessions that will tackle topics such as the basics of Singapore Math, how Singapore Math can be applied in various activities inside and outside the classroom, manipulatives and materials to enhance a child's learning capabilities, innovative activities in teaching geometry and fractions, and how Singapore Math helps students transition from basic to Algebraic concepts.

The conference will also feature a plenary lecture by Dr. Queena Lee-Chua, a Math professor and multi-awarded educator, and her son Scott Chua, a multi-awarded student and a Carlos Palanca Awardee for Literature.
