Extra Practice for Primary Mathematics is a series of six supplementary books that will prove invaluable to students in their understanding of mathematical concepts.
This series follow the topical arrangement in the Primary Mathematics U.S. Edition series. The exercises generally provide problems of a similar style and level of difficulty as the course material covered in the Primary Mathematics U.S. Edition series. The exercises are short and specific, so instructors may assign only those topics in which the students needs more practice. This, together with the simple language used, will allow students to review mathematics with minimal guidance.
The practice material aims to consolidate and reinforce the mathematical skills taught in the Primary Mathematics series.
Answers are in the back of each book.
Singapore Math approaches math with the distinct goal of teaching students to think mathematically. Students are challenged to take the skills of math to the next level with challenging word problems and analytical math practice activities. The Singapore Math program is a favorite among schools and homeschoolers seeking a more advanced approach to math.
What's the Singapore Math Approach?
The Singapore Primary Mathematics U.S. Edition (for grades 1 through 6) series of elementary math textbooks and workbooks uses a progression from the concrete concept to the pictorial to the abstract. This takes students from the basic concrete instruction (illustrated clearly with pictures and diagrams) to abstract concepts that engage them at an analytical level. This approach develops students who are able to think mathematically, to engage in an active thinking process, and to communicate mathematical ideas. Thus, Singapore Math sets out to prepare students for more advanced mathematics.
Math for Middle and High School Students
The Singapore New Elementary Mathematics Syllabus D—Levels 1-4 are designed for grades 7 through 10. In the Syllabus D series, students are challenged to develop a stronger understanding of mathematical concepts and their applications. The goal is to develop students who are proficient in problem solving, mathematical reasoning, and higher-order thinking. The books integrate algebra, geometry, and trigonometry throughout each level.
