Abstract: Given a properly normalized parametrization of a genus-0 modular curve, the complex multiplication points map to algebraic numbers called singular moduli. In both cases there are known algorithms for algebraically computing the rational norms of the singular moduli without relying on the the recognition of a decimal or $ p$-adic expansion as a rational number. We demonstrate a method of extending these norm algorithms to determine the minimal polynomial of the singular moduli below a discriminant threshold. We then use these minimal polynomials to compute the algebraic $ abc$-ratios for the singular moduli.
