The Singapore Math Program continues to be used in Middle School. In grades 7 and 8, Gold Coast Prep 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 a better understanding of mathematical concepts and their applications, as well as on proficiency in problem-solving, mathematical reasoning and higher-order thinking.
