Publisher Description:

Dimensions Math® PreK-5 series features the progression, rigor, and pacing that define Singapore math. Throughout the series, five characters offer students suggestions on how to think about problems. They remind students of strategies they've learned and point out important information that encourages them to come up with their own solutions.

Workbooks offer independent practice that follows a careful progression of exercise variation. Each textbook lesson includes a corresponding workbook exercise that starts with pictorial representation and progresses to more challenging abstract problems. Workbooks for PreK-2 are perforated.

Teacher's Guides include lesson plans, mathematical background, games, helpful suggestions, and comprehensive resources for daily lessons. Lessons are laid out clearly and activities are designed for the whole class, small groups, and extension.

Textbooks and Workbooks do not include answer keys. Answers are in Teacher's Guides.

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 seems to be working.

"Singapore Approach Math" is a general term referring to the math curriculum, or syllabus, designed by Singapore's Ministry of Education. The curriculum has been regularly revised over the last two decades, with most recent revisions in 2001. We carry two different lines. From SingaporeMath.com we carry Earlybird Kindergarten Math (PK-K), Primary Math (1-6), and New Elementary Math (7-10). From Great Source Educational we carry Math in Focus (K-6).

Both of these programs are produced by the same company, Marshall Cavendish Education (Singapore). The U.S. Primary Math editions have a 2003 copyright, while the newer, Standards Edition have a 2008 copyright. These are both modifications of the original edition of Singapore math. These programs are distributed in the U.S. by SingaporeMath.com. They are essentially the same, though the Standards Edition has a small amount of added material and some of the sequences have been rearranged to better meet U.S. standards. Math in Focus has a 2009 copyright. It is distributed in the U.S by Great Source, a division of Houghton Mifflin Harcourt, and packaged for the homeschool community by Saxon Homeschool. So, the programs have common origins.

Primary Math and New Elementary Math are based on the 1997 mathematics syllabus. New Elementary Math has since been "phased out" of schools in Singapore (probably in favor of texts following the 2001 syllabus). However, Primary Math and New Elementary Math are the series that originally gained Singapore international recognition for excellence in mathematics.

There are now manipulatives especially designed to be used with the Singapore approach. Look for these at the end of this section.

Looked at several curriculums that had substantial content. Only dimensions suited our needs.

Great for my preschooler!
I'm a homeschooler and my nearly-4-year old very desperately wanted to do school like her big brother. While I'm firmly in the camp that Pre-k's don't need workbooks to do math, her desperation paid off and I purchased this for her to work on while I worked with brother. She LOVES it, I love it -- it's very colorful, simple to work through, and I don't know why you would need the teacher's guide or textbook as all (very simple) directions are written on the pages of the workbook. It's rigorous as I expect from Singapore, and I'm back to buy PKB for her to continue to work on.
