The Singapore Math Primary Mathematics U.S. Edition series
of elementary math textbooks and workbooks is meant to be part of a system of learning in which adult supervision and independent practice go hand in hand. The main feature of this series is the use of the Concrete> Pictorial>Abstract approach. The students are provided with the necessary learning experiences beginning with the concrete and pictorial stages, followed by the abstract stage to enable them to learn mathematics meaningfully. This approach encourages active thinking process, communication of mathematical ideas and problem solving. This helps develop the foundation students will need for more advanced mathematics.
Practice exercises are designed to provide the students with further practice after they have done the relevant workbook exercises. Review exercises are provided for cumulative reviews of concepts and skills. All the practice exercises and review exercises are optional exercises.
The textbooks contain the learning tasks for students to do under adult supervision and interaction, along with practice and review problems. They are meant to be non-consumable and to be used along with the Primary Mathematics Workbooks.Singapore Math Sample Chapter 2Singapore Math Sample Chapter 5
