Publisher Description
Primary Mathematics Standards Edition is a series of elementary math textbooks and workbooks from the publishers of Singapore's successful Primary Mathematics series. Adapted to align with the Mathematics Framework for California Public Schools, the program aims to equip students with sound concept development, critical thinking and efficient problemsolving skills.
Features of the series:
 Mathematical concepts are introduced in the opening pages and taught to mastery through specific learning tasks that allow for immediate assessment and consolidation.
 The modeling method enables students to visualize and solve mathematical problems quickly and efficiently.
 The Concrete > Pictorial > Abstract approach enables students to encounter math in a meaningful way and translate mathematical skills from the concrete to the abstract.
 The pencil icon provides quick and easy reference from the Textbook to the relevant Workbook pages. The direct correlation of the Workbook to the Textbook facilitates focused review and evaluation.
 New mathematical concepts are introduced throughout a spiral progression that builds on concepts already taught and mastered.
 Metacognition is employed as a strategy for learners to monitor their thinking processes in problem solving. Speech and thought bubbles provide guidance through the thought processes, making even the most challenging problems accessible to students.
 The color patch is used to invite active student participation and to facilitate lively discussion about the mathematical concepts taught.
 Reviews in the Workbooks for 1A1B and regular reviews in the Textbooks and Workbooks for 2A5B provide consolidation of concepts learned.
 The glossary effectively combines pictorial representation with simple mathematical definitions to provide a comprehensive reference guide for students.
The above extract from Preface of Primary Mathematics Standards Edition (reproduced with the permission of the publishers).
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 nonconsumable and to be used along with the Primary Mathematics Standards Edition Workbooks.
The Primary Mathematics Standards Edition textbooks and workbooks DO NOT contain answer keys. Answers are in the home instructor's guide (available for levels 15) and the teacher's guide (available for all levels).

We are on a very tight budget, so I'm wondering if we really need both. If not, which one is most necessary/helpful?A shopper on Jun 5, 2016Primary Mathematics Textbook 1A Standards EditionPrimary Mathematics Workbook 1B Standards EditionBEST ANSWER: This is our first year using Singapore. I have found that the textbook is most necessary; it introduces the lessons and gives a number of examples, often allowing you to try out the new concept.(ie problems with the answers left blank). The workbooks typically have one or two pages of corresponding practice work (remember that Singapore tends to be very graphic, so this translates to a very reasonable amount of work). If you are planning on purchasing the test book, you could use the problems in the test as practice problems (there are multiple tests for each unit in addition to comprehensive tests). If I had to rate them in order of necessity, I would recommend the textbook, then the tests, then the workbook. You could also consider purchasing a second hand copy of the text book or tests and a new version of the workbook. Also keep in mind that each set of books covers approximately one semester worth of work. For example, there is a 1A textbook, 1A workbook, and 1A tests (covering the first semester of first grade). For the second semester of first grade you would need the 2B textbook, 1B workbook, and 1B tests.

For my homeschool, the workbook has been most necessary. If my child can do the next workbook page w/o a lesson, he does. If he doesn't understand the workbook, and it's something simple, I go through some of the corresponding Textbook problems with him until there's understanding. If it's a very new concept, I start with the Home Instructor Guide and follow through with some Textbook, then he does Workbook by himself. The textbook is useful in that it spells out the concept with lots of concrete pictures showing the idea, but if you can do this using manipulatives at home, that can work, too. Reply

Hi. The textbook is a nonconsumable (don't write in it) and the workbook is consumable (write answers in book). The textbook illustrates the concept and will have practice questions where u write your answers on a separate paper. I don't think u need the textbook nor the parent guide for 1st grade. The material is so simple and easy to figure out that you can do it on your own. When you get to higher level math (e.g. Level 4) you may want thytttÃ§e textbook since the concepts get more difficult. Hope this helps! Reply

I would think you would want both. The textbooks offer explantations and help work through problems. The workbooks are just black & white practice pages. I suppose you could get by with just the workbook if you were prepared to do more explaining, demos, etc and were planning to really utilize the home instructor guide to be sure that you taught it Singapore stye. You really need the workbook though. There isn't enough practice in just the textbooks to master the skills. Reply

My caveat is always that each child is different, so it may vary for you and your children. That being said, we found that my oldest doesn't like the workbook. This is like worksheets you get to practice the material over and over again. She picked up the concepts fine with the lessons taught from the teacher's guide and the textbook but she disliked and dragged her feet about the workbook. So far, we've been fine with my second child not having the workbook as well. Reply

The textbook offers a few pages of introduction and practice problems with very colorful pictures and graphics. The workbooks provides several pages of actual practice work and reviews for each section in black/white. In my opinion, I would use the home instructor manual in conjunction with the workbook if you are looking at value/cost/necessity. The instructor manual provides several ways of introducing the material without needing the textbook. Reply

The textbooks introduces the concepts and often time provides an illustration of what is being taught in the instructors guide. We find it very useful to use along with the workbook. The workbook is an absolute must have as it contains the bulk of the work needed for the student to adequately master Singapore math. The workbook is consumable, but you could treat the textbook as just a textbook and have the student complete their work on paper. Reply

The textbook actually goes through and explains each of the concepts (positioning, adding & subtracting using number bonds, etc.) whereas the workbook gives the child more opportunity to practice the concepts. If I were to choose only one to use, I'd probably go with the workbook. There may be additional work on the part of the parent to explain the concepts at each level but I think it could be done.

The home instructor guide is a must. And I would definitely get the workbook as well for the student to practice their skills. I found the textbook to be the most expendable. It does provide visual examples and problems, but it's not too hard to come up with examples on your own. The textbook certainly couldn't take the place of the concrete lessons in the home instructor guide. Reply

The textbook is the teacher's aid to instruct the student in the math concepts being taught. For early grades you really don't need it, as it is teaching basic addition and subtraction concepts. I hardly used the textbook with my 5, now 6 year old this year. I'm not familiar with the higher grade levels as I use a different curriculum. Reply

The textbook is what you will use to teach, it colorfully illustrates the lesson. The workbook is where the student will practice and gain further understanding of what they were just taught. It is always helpful to take a look inside, you may want to ask around to see if anyone else is using this curriculum and thumb thorough it. Reply

The textbook is the examples and the workbook is the actual practice problems your child will work through. My boys enjoyed this Singapore Math 1A&1B (they each had their own workbook)! If on a tight budget, I would skip the textbook. I did not think it was necessary for this level of math. Reply

We did without the textbooks last year for Kindergarten. I bought them for first grade thinking that it might be good to have them, but we didn't use them much and they certainly aren't a necessity! Reply

You will need both (in order to do the program as it was designed). The textbooks provide instruction; the workbooks provide practice. Reply
