Product Description:

No material from the Primary Math US edition was removed for the Standards Edition (SE), only rearranged between levels. A few units have been added primarily in probability and data analysis, negative numbers and coordinate graphing. A glossary of terms was added to each of the textbooks. In levels 2A through 5B there is now a cumulative review after most units in both the textbook and the workbook. 6A and 6B feature reviews after every other unit. Many of the units have a few pages that have been added in order to "reteach" a concept from an earlier level. There is some material that had been removed from the 2nd edition that has been added back in - some of the reteaching pages, additional pages on fractions and mental math learning tasks, along with some problems added to the reviews. Levels 3A through 6B are now in color.

As in the 3rd ed., you need both the textbook and the workbook. The textbook contains the learning tasks along with the practices and reviews that are to be done in class. The workbook contains the independent work. Materials are now also available for 6A and 6B. Please note that the US ed. Teacher's Guides and Home Instructor's Guides and Answer Key Booklets cannot be used interchangeably with the Standards Edition material.

Both the Teachers Guides and the Home Instructor Guides include answers to the Textbook and Workbook problems. Both of these publications help teachers understand the course material and provide suggestions to help you introduce concepts. As a general rule, the Teacher Guides are more oriented to the classroom while the Home Instructor Guides are more geared to working one-on-one with a student. However, both provide detailed lesson plans. The Teacher Guides have daily lesson plans while the Home Instructor Guides provide teaching segments indicating the number of weeks to spend per unit. A significant difference between the two is that the Home Instructor Guides have a sidebar column that shows assignments complete with answers. Assignments in the Teacher Guides are listed within the lesson plans and all answers are in the back of the book. Both include lists of suggested manipulatives and materials and included in the appendix of each are mental math worksheets and some teaching helps. (please see our Singapore Math Manipulative category at the end of the Singapore Math section.)

Extra Practice books provide additional problems for A and B books at each level.

NOTE: The Math 6 Teacher Guides have some incorrect answers. An errata sheet is available at SingaporeMath.com, showing the correct answers. Given the limited amount of explanatory information in the Teacher Guides compared to the Student Books, you may consider not purchasing these guides. ~ Janice




Category Description for Singapore Math Standards Edition (K-6):

Primary Math S/E (Standards Edition) (K-6) was adapted to meet the pre-Common Core CA math standards. An additional amount of content (probability, data analysis, negative numbers, coordinate graphing) from the 2nd edition was added back in and topics were rearranged but it is similar to the US edition. Cumulative Reviews at the end of each Unit and practice sets within each unit were added. Textbooks are in color. 2008 copyright dates. This edition includes the Earlybird Kindergarten Math program.

Category Description for Singapore Math Programs:

Countries around the world first became interested in Singapore’s math curriculum when results of the Third International Math and Science Study (TIMSS) were published in 1995. Conducted by the International Study Center at Boston College, achievement tests in both math and science were administered to students in over 40 countries. Students from Singapore ranked highly in mathematics achievement: 1st in the fourth, seventh, and eighth grade levels and 2nd at the third grade level. Results for the U.S. were disappointing: 10th in the third grade, 11th in the fourth grade, 23rd in the seventh grade, and 27th at the eighth grade level. In a follow-up study in 1999, Singapore again ranked 1st in eighth grade math achievement while U.S. eighth graders ranked 19th. Although a first place ranking does not necessarily imply the best program, something about Singapore’s math program was working.

“Singapore Approach Math” is a general term referring to a type of mathematical instruction (i.e. curriculum) developed from a syllabus designed by Singapore’s Ministry of Education in the 1980s. There were a number of revisions and the 3rd edition was the last edition used in Singapore. The good test scores were associated with this material and all of our Singapore Approach Math programs are based primarily on the 3rd edition although it is no longer available for sale. Components from different editions are not interchangeable but a student can move between the editions in-between levels.

Primary Math US (1-6) is an adaptation of the 3rd edition for use in the U.S. Although a small amount of content (division of fractions) from the 2nd edition was added back into the US edition, it is almost identical to the 3rd edition. The US edition adds sections for U.S. customary measurements and uses U.S. spelling and conventions. We expect this edition to be available indefinitely. ©2003

Primary Math S/E (Standards Edition) (K-6) was adapted to meet the pre-Common Core CA math standards. An additional amount of content (probability, data analysis, negative numbers, coordinate graphing) from the 2nd edition was added back in and topics were rearranged but it is similar to the US edition. Cumulative Reviews at the end of each Unit and practice sets within each unit were added. Textbooks are in color. ©2008 This edition will be phased out. Includes Earlybird Kindergarten Math.

Primary Math CC (Common Core) (K-5) is aligned to the Common Core State Standards and is another adaptation of the 3rd edition. Only minor changes were made to the scope and sequence. Unit Reviews are no longer cumulative and Practices were removed although some of the content was incorporated into the lessons. ©2014 Includes Earlybird Kindergarten Math CC. This edition will be available for the foreseeable future.

New Elementary Math (7-8) is a no-frills program based on an older Singaporian program and covering integrated algebra and geometry.It’s considered a sequel to the Primary Math programs.

Dimensions Math (7-8) is an updated and more colorful version that is now aligned to the CCSS. It’s also considered a sequel to the Primary Math programs.

Math in Focus (K-8) was developed by Great Source (a division of Houghton Mifflin Harcourt) in conjunction with Marshall Cavendish (the original publisher in Singapore). Although the basic instructional sequences are similar and the content is very close to the SE, material added to the most recent editions brings it into alignment with CC. Math in Focus has a more American look and “feel.” ©2010, 2014

I really like the Singapore Math Standards Edition curriculum. I've used it with a few children already and now my 1st grader is ready for the next one.
Sara on Feb 18, 2019
We tried their new curriculum, Dimensions, along with the Primary. The Primary was much easier to follow and use, with just enough information covered in each exercise.

I wanted a conceptual math program for my mathematically gifted child.
Jennifer M on Oct 17, 2018
We have been using Singapore Math for three years. This is my second round with Level 1 (my oldest is now on Level 3). I feel confident with this approach. The math is challenging but well explained. There is plenty of practice to master each lesson. Each concept is illustrated in several ways. My two boys work through math in different ways and it works for both of them.
Melissa H on Sep 19, 2018
Singapore Math provides a solid math foundation. I like the emphasis on learning mental math skills. We use it for Kindergarten through 3rd grade.

I read on various sites that this is a more rigorous math program for common core.
Meredith D on Dec 18, 2017
My calculus teaching friend who homeschools her children recommended this curriculum to me for mine. It's colorful, bright and teaches multiple learning styles.
Amanda D on Aug 21, 2017
This is the most highly recommended math program, and it is incredibly straight forward and easy to plan. The price is also great.

Singapore has worked well for all 4 of our children. My oldest is finishing the 2nd half of grade 6 this year, and is doing very well in Math.
Benjamin G on Mar 1, 2016
When I first started homeschooling a friend directed me to this series. I like the standards edition best. The series is sort of ahead of our public school. Much of it reminds me of the way my 10th grade math teacher tried to open our minds to think in this way. I know a lot of people like Saxon and are always trying to get me to switch, but this math program makes sense to me.
Lynn B on Oct 6, 2015
This is my 5th child using this curriculum. All my kids, of varying math interest and skill, have done very well with Singapore Math.

Aimee T on Jul 16, 2020
What is the difference between the Singapore Math workbooks and textbooks (specifically looking at first grade)? We are on a very tight budget, so I'm wondering if we really need both. If not, which one is most necessary/helpful?

BEST 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.

Visually-appealing and a solid, conceptual program
The Singapore workbooks, while in black and white, are full of visually-appealing pictures. Singapore employs the concrete to pictorial to abstract approach, and these workbooks provide a wonderful bridge. With my very visual child, a workbook that looks dry and boring would work. But these really make the math practice look fun. There is a decent amount of coloring in the direction which also makes things more appealing.
