6. Singapore CHALLENGING WORD PROBLEM for PRIMARY MATH U.S. Edition published by Panpac Education, Singapore>
Singapore appears frequently in the research used to arrive at the Common Core State Standards in Mathematics. It is therefore not surprising that our Singapore Math programs are well-aligned with those standards.

Singapore students were in first place in the 1995, 1999 and 2003 TIMSS. TIMSS (Trends in International Mathematics and Science Study) is designed to measure trends in students’ mathematics and science achievement in four-year cycles. Our primary math books series were used by Singapore students who took the tests.
This series provides extra practice and challenge in solving word problems. The main objective of these books is to help the students improve their problem solving skills. The format of this series contains entirely Mathematical word problems, no computational exercises. Due to the very high complexity of word problems, we recommend the following guidelines for your children:

7.1 Visible Thinking in Mathematics, Marshall Cavendish Int (S) Pte Ltd, SingaporeIt is a series of eleven supplementary books 1A-6 that promotes critical and creative thinking in mathematics.

While practice leads to better performance, practice without contextual and conceptual understanding prevents the child from thinking critically and creatively. In this series, instead of learning procedures and formulas by rote, the child masters concepts through:

Thinking routines: functional questions to direct the child's thinking on key concepts and cultivate the child's thinking skills.

Parallel questions: consecutive mathematical problems with the same context but different key words to highlight differences between problems; ensuring that the child understands and retains concepts and skills better.

This approach not only instills in the child mathematical skills but also inspires discipline in thinking and greater motivation for learning.

Additional support is provided to the child through Notes. Notes present opportunities for parents and teachers to clarify misconceptions, simplify difficult concepts and address areas of difficulty for the child.

10. Math Sprints Workbook series by Singapore Math Inc, USA

Math Sprints Workbook is a series of 5 books. The Singapore Math curriculum stresses the use of mental math. These sprint books are written with that in mind and are useful to all elementary teachers interested in developing mental math fluency in their children.

These books were originally written for use in a classroom situation. They are reproduced here as a workbook for use in the home or in a setting with only a few students. Instructions are included in the book on how to give a sprint for one student. You can make adaptations to meet your own child’s needs, but be sure the keep it FUN! You will see that your child is racing to beat his own score each time he takes one of these tests.

Each sprint is differentiated. The A sheet of each half of the sprint is easier than the B sheet. If you look closely at the A and B sheets of each sprint, the answers to the problems are the same. Many of the problems on the B sheets, however, require more mental calculation. If you have a child of average mental math abilities, you can give the A sheets first and the B sheets next, or later in the year, or not at all for that student. If you have a child that is strong in mental math abilities, you could give only the B sheet.

You may want to buy a sprint book at a grade below the level you teach so that your child gets used to taking sprints and feels very successful with them. Particularly if your child’s mental math fluency is not where it should be, you can help her build it gradually by starting at a lower grade level.

If you are teaching more than one child, you may want to buy sprint books for each of their levels and administer the sprints to all of your children at the same time. You will have to read the answers separately for each child, though.

It is important to let your child know that this is simply a competition against himself to improve mental math skills and it is for fun. It is NOT for a grade.

8. Singapore Discovering Math Workbook - Grade 7-11, published Star Publishing Pte Ltd, Singapore

The Discovering Mathematics Workbooks are designed for secondary school students and are written according to the 2007 secondary Mathematics syllabus issued by the Ministry of Education, Singapore.

Each workbook is written as a supplement to the textbook, Discovering Mathematics, to give students more practice in applying the concepts learnt. 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 parts according to the level of difficulty and the thinking skills involved:

1. Basic Principle: simple questions that drill comprehension of concepts

2. Further Practice: harder questions that involve direct applications

3. Challenging Practice: questions that require synthesis ability

4. 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.

Specimen papers are also included in each workbook to better prepare students for the examinations.

These comprehensive workbooks aim to 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 that learning Mathematics is an interesting and exciting experience.

Recommended for those who want a challenging math series from a country with a proven track record in math education. This series integrates pre-algebra, algebra, and geometry and includes some trigonometry and advanced math topics.
