The Singapore Math Program continues to be used in Middle School. In grades 7 and 8, CGS uses Singapore’s New Elementary Mathematics (NEM) Program to provide instruction in algebra and geometry. NEM is a challenging math series with a proven international track record. Emphasis is placed on the development of better understanding of mathematical concepts and their applications, as well as on proficiency in problem solving, mathematical reasoning and higher order thinking. Middle school children at CGS participate in an annual international math competition.
