Dimensions Math® Workbooks are designed for middle school students.
Developed in collaboration between Star Publishing Pte. Ltd. and Singapore Math Inc®, these workbooks follow the Singapore Framework and also cover the topics in the Common Core State Standards.
Each workbook is written as a supplement to the textbook, Dimensions Math®, to give students more practice in applying the concepts learned. Students may refer to the summary of the important concepts in each chapter of the textbook for a quick review before attempting the questions in the workbook. After completing the exercises, students will not only polish their own analytical skills, but also develop a stronger foundation in mathematics.
The questions in each workbook chapter are categorized into 4 pars according to the level of difficulty and the thinking skills involved:
- Basic Practice: simple questions that drill comprehension of concepts
- Further Practice: harder questions that involve direct applications
- Challenging Practice: questions that require synthesis ability
- Enrichment: questions that demand higher order thinking
These questions encourage students to think analytically, reason logically, use appropriate connections between mathematical ideas, and apply problem-solving skills in daily life situations.
We hope that these comprehensive workbooks will give students the tools and the confidence to handle mathematical questions and apply mathematical concepts to real-life situations. By achieving this, students will find learning mathematics an interesting and exciting experience.
We wish to express our sincere thanks to all those who have provided valuable feedback and great assistance in the production of these workbooks.
