Singapore Math & Singapore Curriculum
Primary Mathematics, US Edition
Singapore Math's Primary Mathematics, U.S. Edition Series features the Concrete> Pictorial> Abstract approach. Students begin by learning through concrete and pictorial means before moving into abstract thought and development, which encourages an active thinking process, communication of mathematical ideas and problem-solving. Lessons are designed for a mix of teacher instruction and independent work, and students are encouraged to discuss ideas and explore additional problem-solving methods.
The US Edition series is designed specifically for U.S. students. Names, terms in examples, measurements, spellings, currency, and other such elements have been changed to reflect American names and stylistic preferences.
