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

If purchasing the Primary Math Standards Edition 1A&B Sets do you need to purchase the Primary Math 1A&B Tests books separately? What about the Extra Practice and Answer Key Books for levels 1A&B?
A shopper on Dec 9, 2017
BEST ANSWER: It depends on how well your student is grasping the material. I feel like there is plenty of opportunity in the text and workbook, along with the mental math included in the back of the book to give my child sufficient practice for learning the material. Also, understanding that complete mastery does not happen all at once is important. But you know your child- If your child needs extra practice, then it would be worthwhile to consider the extra practice booklets, though I have not used them myself. I also do not test at this level, as the reviews in the workbook provide me with a good overview of what my child is or is not understanding. When she struggles, I tend to supplement myself to focus on specific problem areas.

Fun math books
These math books are so much fun. They come with tons of hands on activities. I highly recommend using the instructor's guide.

Primary Standards 1A
Since I am starting fresh, I ordered this bundle instead of going separate, and am glad I did. The HIG is absolutely necessary, along with the workbook. I can see skipping the textbook if pressed, but would still recommend.

The Standards edition meets Common Core standards without losing that Singapore magic. It teaches math in such a way that my child is not only grasping the work at hand but able to jump ahead in conclusion of how to do math in other ways. An example would be that my daughter was working on number bonds. We spent extra time there to make sure she grasped it, and once we started on addition, she already had some of the fact families memorized!

I highly recommend this, and will be back for 1b once she gets there.
