## 21st century skills: higher order thinking – math

Computational thought will be a defining characteristic of the future, and it’s important to begin introducing it to children now. There’s still a lot of debate (and concern) about how to teach children conventional mathematical thought. Looking ahead, however, the relevance of teaching computational thought pales in comparison. Yes, a certain amount of conventional mathematical thought is needed in daily life and many professions. However, computational thinking will be needed in all fields. And being able to do it well will be important for almost all future occupations.
Whatever they are: doctors, attorneys, teachers, farmers, and so on. Computational reasoning will be prevalent in both of these fields in the future. Whether it’s sensor-based medicine, computational contracts, education analytics, or computational agriculture, progress would be determined by one’s ability to think computationally.
So, how do we train today’s children for the future? I’ve been working with computational thought for nearly 40 years, developing technologies for it, applying it in a variety of settings, researching its fundamental science, and attempting to comprehend its concepts. And at this stage, I believe I have a good understanding of what computational thought entails. The issue now is how to teach children about it. And I’m pleased to report that I believe I now have a good answer—one based on the Wolfram Language, which I’ve spent 30 years developing for other purposes. For a long time, there have been ways to teach the fundamentals of low-level programming, but what’s fresh and significant is that, thanks to all of the expertise and automation built into the Wolfram Language, we’ve finally arrived at a point where we have the technology to explicitly teach large computational thought, even to children.

THE SINGAPORE FOURTH GRADE MATH WORKBOOK Offers Concentrated Instruction: The Singapore Fourth Grade Math Workbook provides 9 to 10 year-old children with focused practice in mathematical mastery. This 256-page workbook uses progressive lessons, problem-solving activities, and assessments in each lesson to assess each student’s understanding and knowledge of the subject.
MEETS SINGAPORE TEXTBOOK STANDARDS: This workbook can be used as a complement to Math lessons in the classroom, at home, or for extra practice. Students learn how to add and subtract numbers up to 10,000, solve for length, mass, and volume, use bar graphs, calculate angles and lines, and more.
HOW IT WORKS: Each segment begins with fun and engaging lessons that include step-by-step examples and practice pages, as well as clear and helpful guidance and techniques. At the end of each segment, students are tested on their knowledge and skills to ensure they have learned what they need to move on to the next concept.
