Abstract: 
In Singapore, education is regarded as an investment instead of a social service. Singapore’s Education System has evolved over time and so have school mathematics curricula in Singapore. Mathematics education in Singapore schools in the twenty-first century is still going through a period of change. Mathematics is a compulsory subject up to Grade 10 in Singapore schools. The present-day School Mathematics Curriculum is based on a pentagonal framework with mathematical problem solving as its central focus. In this chapter, we review the developments of Singapore school mathematics curriculum for the past sixty years and describe some of the important features of the intended, attained and implemented aspects of the mathematics curriculum in Singapore. The implementation of the 2019 secondary mathematics syllabus and the 2020 primary mathematics syllabus began in 2020 and 2021, respectively. This chapter also examines the implications and issues related to the implementation of these two syllabuses.
