Part-Whole / Number-Bonds Collection (K-2)
Math facts can be learned in a number of ways, but can be difficult for some youngsters. This set includes number bond cards for addition and subtraction and part-whole cards. The cards measure 5 inches square and are made of sturdy, glossy cardstock. There are a few blank cards in each set for making your own combinations.
The number bond cards (80 in the set) are more than flash cards; they show the relationship between addition and subtraction facts. The front of each card presents a diagram with 3 boxes: one box is outlined with a dotted line. The dot-outlined box shows the sum of the other two boxes; the dot-outlined box might instead show one of the addends. The digits you see can be used to explain both the functions of addition and subtraction. The reverse side of the number bond cards show the same diagram as the front, but the dot-outlined number is missing; children name the missing number.
Part-whole cards (80 cards in the set) show the parts of the whole number. The top half of the card shows the larger number and the bottom half of the card shows the numbers used to make the larger number (for example, 4 and 5 at the bottom and 9 at the top); the cards represent combinations up to 10. The back of each card shows the same number combinations, but one number is missing: children determine the missing number.
Help your children learn their math facts but also understand the relationship between functions with these helpful card sets. ~ Donna
Set includes 626634 Part-Whole Activity Cards and 626647 Number-Bonds Activity Cards Addition-Subtraction. Build a foundation with the part-whole relationships to 10. Then build fluency in addition and subtraction with number-bonds with all combinations to make 10. These two sets of 5" x 5", two-sided cards provides 160 total activity cards any K-2 classroom would love to have.
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
