Abstract: 
This paper reports on the work to review the key pedagogical approach advocated in Singapore
Primary Mathematics Curriculum – the Concrete-Pictorial-Abstract Approach or C-P-A Approach in
view of the changes brought about by technological advances. In particular, the Concrete-Virtual-
Pictorial-Abstract Approach or C-V-P-A Approach is proposed to take into account the role that
virtual manipulatives play in enriching the representations of mathematical concepts in the
mathematics classrooms. Through a case study, the study sought to determine the possible impact of
this proposed revised approach on teachers’ delivery of lessons.
