The evolution of Singapore's school mathematics curriculum is in tandem with developments in the education system of Singapore. In the last six decades, economic policies of the government that are necessary for the survival of Singapore in a fast changing world have shaped the aims of the school mathematics curriculum. The present day curriculum can best be described as one that caters for the needs of every child in school. It is based on a coherent framework that has mathematical problem solving as its primary focus.
