. We also offer
placement tests, so that you can order the correct material for your child.
Students older than 1st grade should be given a placement test, so you can assess their math knowledge and start them in the right book. Singapore Math
® textbooks and activity books are written so that it's easy for you to speed up or slow down your progress to match your child's understanding of each subject. Success is built when students master each topic, so educators are encouraged to take the time they need for the student to have complete understanding of the material.
Once you have determined the appropriate level material, you can choose which Series you want to use. For Kindergarten Math, we offer two titles: Singapore Math® Essential Math and Earlybird Kindergarten Mathematics. For Elementary School, we offer three Editions of the Primary Mathematics Series: the U.S. Edition, the Standards Edition, and the Common Core Edition. For Secondary School, we offer Dimensions Math. We recommend you review the contents and samples for each book by clicking on the "Contents_Samples" tab for each title.
The kindergarten level has an optional activity book. Primary Mathematics 1-6 has workbooks, which are essential to the program, and provide the practice that would be done independently after a lesson. The Dimensions Math series has an optional workbook that provides extra practice after completing a chapter.
For students in Grades 1-6, we offer a number of supplementary math titles for additional practice or enrichment. These are written for or complement the Primary Mathematics series.
Most titles also have a Home Instructor Guide available. These are written specifically for one-on-one and small group teaching. If you have the Home Instructor Guide, you will not need to purchase the Teacher's Guide as well.
