Description Contents_Samples

New Elementary Mathematics Syllabus D (author - Sin Kwai Meng; General Editor - Dr Wong Khoon Yoong)  is a four-year series of  secondary course books with accompanying workbooks and quick review guides. (In Singapore, the term "elementary" refers to "the basics" of higher math, i.e., algebra, geometry, trigonometry, etc.) Throughout the series, emphasis is placed on the development of better understanding of mathematical concepts and their applications, as well as on proficiency in problem solving, mathematical reasoning and higher order thinking.  To facilitate this, the series has included the following:

  • investigative work
  • communication skills in mathematics and
  • appropriate computation and estimation skills
  • mental calculation
  • problem-solving heuristics

Features of the series:

  • Exercises 
    Numerous exercises are provided for students of varied abilities and the problems are graded.  The more difficult questions are marked with asterisks (*).
  • Class Activity
  • Chapter Review
    At the end of every chapter, there is a Chapter review which recapitulates the key concepts and skills learnt.
  • Challenger
    This section, immediately after the Chapter Review, is specially designed to provide interesting and challenging problems on the particular chapter topic for more able and adventurous students.
  • Problem Solving
    Problem Solving exercises are given to enable students to practice their problem-solving skills.
  • Revision (Review) Exercises
    Sets of revision exercises are also included at appropriate intervals to provide students with the necessary practice and reinforcement.  Constant revision is very important for skill mastery.
  • Miscellaneous Exercises
    These exercises are given after several chapters.  They provide students with many questions to apply the various concepts learnt.
  • Investigation
    Problems in the Investigation sections provide opportunities for students to explore, experiment with and discuss mathematical ideas.
  • Mathstory
    The  history of mathematics is given at the side margin where appropriate.  This section is meant to enrich students with the knowledge of how mathematics has developed over the years.
  • Assessment Papers

It is hoped that this series will help students gain confidence in and have better insights into the subject, and above all, that students will look upon Mathematics as something exciting, rewarding and useful.

The textbook provides answer keys to Exercises, Revision Exercises, Miscellaneous Exercises and Assessment Papers.

Our recommendation:

New Elementary Mathematics is ideal for both classroom and home use for 7th - 10th grades.  This is the most popular secondary math series used by schools and homeschoolers in the U.S. and Canada

Recommended for those who want a challenging math series with a proven international track record that will carry them part way into advanced math.  This series integrates pre-algebra, algebra, and geometry and includes some advanced math topics.  Many questions require students to apply knowledge to new situations rather than following a procedure.  Includes challenging questions for enrichment and discussion as well as math investigations.  Teacher involvement is generally required.

General guideline for the New Elementary Mathematics Series:
NEM 1 - Introductory algebra and geometry
            NEM 2 - Intermediate algebra and geometry
            NEM 3 - Advanced algebra and geometry
            NEM 4 - Introductory advanced math and review

Placement Test to place your student.
