Abstract: This paper analyses how the Singapore primary mathematics curriculum develops algebraic thinking. Analysis of the curricular materials provides evidence to show that three approaches are adopted to develop algebraic thinking in the Singapore primary mathematics curriculum: namely, problem solving, generalising and functional. These approaches are supported by three thinking processes - analysing parts and whole, generalising and specializing, and doing and undoing. The findings show that the Singapore primary mathematics curriculum provides a wide spectrum of activities which utilise different thinking processes.
