This workbook features math practice and activities for first and second grade students based on the Singapore Math method. Singapore Math allow pupils to explore mathematics from the concrete through the pictorial and finally to the abstract mathematical representation. It presents clearly and structurally a progressive approach to provide a strong mathematical foundation for students. Using many real life scenarios, pupils are able to connect their everyday life experiences with mathematics. As they go through the exercises, they acquire the skills and competencies to become confident and self-directed learners of mathematics. This book is written in line with the 2014 primary mathematics syllabus from the Ministry of Education, Singapore. It is structured to not only meet the learning needs of primary school students but to develop pupils as citizens and active contributors to society. Mathematics is no longer boring, but engaging, accessible and meaningful.
Singapore Math creates a deep understanding of each key math concept, is a direct complement to the current textbooks used in Singapore,includes an introduction explaining the Singapore Math method, and includes step-by-step solutions in the answer key. Singapore Math, for students in grades 2 to 5, provides math practice while developing analytical and problem-solving skills. Learning objectives are provided to identify what students should know after completing each unit, and assessments are included to ensure that learners obtain a thorough understanding of mathematical concepts. Perfect as a supplement to classroom work, these workbooks will boost confidence in problem-solving and critical-thinking skills!

New Syllabus Mathematics (NSM) is a series of textbooks specially designed to provide valuable learning experiences to engage the hearts and minds of students sitting for the GCE O-level examination in Mathematics. Included in the textbooks are Investigation, Class Discussion, Thinking Time, Journal Writing, Performance Task and Problems in Real-World Contexts to support the teaching and learning of Mathematics. Every chapter begins with a chapter opener which motivates students in learning the topic. Interesting stories about Mathematicians, real-life examples and applications are used to arouse students’ interest and curiosity so that they can appreciate the beauty of Mathematics in their surroundings. The use of ICT helps students to visualise and manipulate mathematical objects more easily, thus making the learning of Mathematics more interactive. Ready-to-use interactive ICT templates are available at http://www.shinglee.com.sg/ StudentResources/
This book highlights new developments in the teaching and learning of algebraic thinking with 5- to 12-year-olds. Based on empirical findings gathered in several countries on five continents, it provides a wealth of best practices for teaching early algebra. Building on the work of the ICME-13 (International Congress on Mathematical Education) Topic Study Group 10 on Early Algebra, well-known authors such as Luis Radford, John Mason, Maria Blanton, Deborah Schifter, and Max Stephens, as well as younger scholars from Asia, Europe, South Africa, the Americas, Australia and New Zealand, present novel theoretical perspectives and their latest findings. The book is divided into three parts that focus on (i) epistemological/mathematical aspects of algebraic thinking, (ii) learning, and (iii) teaching and teacher development. Some of the main threads running through the book are the various ways in which structures can express themselves in children’s developing algebraic thinking, the roles of generalization and natural language, and the emergence of symbolism. Presenting vital new data from international contexts, the book provides additional support for the position that essential ways of thinking algebraically need to be intentionally fostered in instruction from the earliest grades.
This book shares insights into the achievement gap in mathematics between East Asian and Western countries, and the ways to improve students’ mathematics achievements. Especially, it highlights the importance to integrate case studies with large-scale international comparative studies in general, and comparative studies of mathematics education in particular. This book is a must-read for mathematics teachers, mathematics educators, educational researchers, education administrators, curriculum developers, assessment designers, and student teachers who are interested in mathematics education and how to improve students’ mathematics achievements.
