The Primary Mathematics U.S. Edition series of elementary math textbooks and workbooks is meant to be part of a system of learning in which adult supervision and independent practice go hand in hand. The main feature of this series is the use of the Concrete to Pictorial to Abstract approach. Students are provided with the necessary learning experiences beginning with the concrete and pictorial stages, followed by the abstract stage to enable them to learn mathematics meaningfully. This approach encourages active thinking process, communication of mathematical ideas and problem solving, which helps develop the foundation students will need for more advanced mathematics.

Practice exercises are designed to provide the students with further practice after they have done the relevant workbook exercises. Review exercises are provided for cumulative reviews of concepts and skills. All the practice exercises and review exercises are optional exercises.

The color patch  is used to invite active participation from the students and to facilitate oral discussion. The students are advised not to write on the color patches.

Product Description

The Curriculum

The original Primary Mathematics curriculum was created by the Singapore Ministry of Education and written by a team of Singapore teachers. Singapore 4th grade students who participated in TIMSS (Trends in International Mathematics and Science Study) in 1995, 1999 and 2003 scored top place for mathematics. They were using the Primary Mathematics series

There are currently three editions of Primary Mathematics series in the U.S. All three have been used successfully in U.S. schools and homes.

Primary Mathematics follows the five key learning models integrated in the Singapore math approach: Concrete-Pictorial-Abstract approach, model drawing, teaching to mastery, spiral progression and metacognition.
