About the Seller
We established Singapore Math Inc.® (formerly Singaporemath.com Inc®) in 1998 with the mission to bring high quality Singapore mathematics books to the American market. Our story began when we moved back to the U.S. from Singapore, where our daughter attended local schools through the first grade, and were dissatisfied with the quality of math materials used at her new elementary school. We decided to supplement her schoolwork with the series of math books that she used in Singapore. Our company was built on our belief that schools and homeschoolers across the country should have access to the excellent math books that we used to tutor our daughter.
