  2. Hi, I just ordered everything for Math 7A and 7B. I thought the book titled Teaching Notes would be the guide to teaching, but it is not and it doesn’t appear that there is an Instrutor’s Guide to go with this year. Is that true? If so does anyone know why that would be left out? Thanks for the help!

  5. Hi there, I hope you can help. I am based in Australia. I am going to be homeschooling my 7 year old from next term. Singapore Math will be well suited to his personality. Can you advise which version I should be using, and what the latest edition is? Where would be the best place for me to source it from - I will most likely be in Greece by the time we start. Thanks so much, Lisa

    Whats next after US ed 6B?

    Don't worry about the label. It just means that some things were added to meet the topic requirements, and a few things moved. Like using the absolute value symbol. They still include material in advance of Common Core. They still include all the content of the Discovering Mathematics from Singapore they are based on. You can see table of contents of any of our books by clicking on the image or name of the book, and then clicking on the tab that says Contents_Sample. For 7A: http://www.singaporemath.com/Dimensions_Math_Workbook_7A_p/dmw7a.htm for 7B: http://www.singaporemath.com/Dimensions_Math_Workbook_7B_p/dmw7b.htm

    Whats next after US ed 6B?

    I guess I am still confused about what to use next. I looked at Dimensions 7A and all the versions say "Common Core." We are finishing 6B US Editions also. I am leary of anything labeled Common Core. Are there different editions of Dimensions? Is there a syllabus or table of contents posted?

    Grades 9-12 Math Curriculum

    There was a bit added to make it more algebra 1 ish, but you will get that in algebra 2 as if new. The quadratic formula was added, and a bit more on integers. But also a bit more on probability and data analysis to meet Common Core requirements. But that is not something that would affect algebra 2 readiness. But yes, algebra 2 has a lot of repetition and reteaching of things that are briefly introduced in a typical algebra 1 text in anticipation.

    Hi Jenny, Would your answer be the same if my child went through the discontinued Discovering Mathematics 7 and 8? I have those books from when they were being published, and would like to use them again with a younger child, if there is a sensical path into higher math.

    Tests?

    There are no published tests for Dimensions Math. There are reviews for chapters in Dimensions Math 7 and 8, or you can select problems from the supplementary workbook.

    Is Dimensions Math 8 Algebra I?

    It covers most of the topics in most algebra 1 texts. It is adequate preparation for algebra 2.

    Tests?

    Are there any tests for Dimensions Math 6-8? There does not appear to be any in the store. Or are they incorporated into the textbook?
  13. Does Dimensions Math 8 fully cover algebra I?

    Plans to discontinue any series?

    Good news. Thank you!

    Plans to discontinue any series?

    There are no current plans to discontinue Primary Mathematics. It is still a good series.
  16. Are there plans to discontinue any series with the addition of Dimensions K-3?

    6B Workbook Page 137

    For (a), probability for first toss is 12/16 and for second toss is 4/15, so 12/16 x 4/15 = 1/5 For (b), it is 4/16 x 3/15 = 1/10. Do you need further explanation?
  21. Hi, I'm needing workbook 6B page 137 #5a,b explained to me. I am overthinking this and can't figure it out. Thanks in advance.

    Introduction to bar diagramming

    The Process Skills books are good for that, as they have more explanation and detailed solutions. You might want to start at the 2 or 3 level. See http://www.singaporemath.com/Heuristic_and_Model_Approach_s/151.htm There are also various web sites and you tube videos others have done, but they are sort of hit and miss. But you could try https://www.mathplayground.com/thinkingblocks.html
  23. I have a fourth grader who does well at math in public school. I was looking at the samples in the Challenging word problems Book 4 and realized he doesn't know bar diagramming at all. We are new to Singapore math books. Although my child solved the problems without using the diagrams. I see the obvious benefits of bar diagramming and would for him to pick up this skill. What book in the Primary math series introduces bar diagramming? Alternately is there a separate resource to learn just bar diagramming?

    Whats next after US ed 6B?

    Yes, she can do Dimensions 7A after US edition 6B. I think she should not skip US edition 6A and 6B, it it is good. A lot of review, but wonderful problems as well, and depth added for some topics. I am not as fond of Standards edition 6, as it was a total rewrite, US math being so different at that grade level. Standards edition has some things moved down from 6 to meet some requirements in California (the topics should actually have been made easier, or more introductory, but the were not). And, area and ciricumference of a circle was added to 7. Which means no topics lost, if you wanted to do that. That is not the case with US edition, and anyway that level has a lot of good depth and good problems and covers some topics very well. New Elementary Math is quite challenging, and the Teacher's Manual is out of print, but if you can find it used, and want the challenge, your child will get a very deep understanding of math, or get frustrated with not being able to solve half of the problems, depending on your child's math abilities. And maybe yours in helping.

    Whats next after US ed 6B?

    I want to clarify because there is a lot of discussion related to Standard ed. but my kids use US Edition. Should my daughter continue to Dimensions 7A following completion of US ed 6B? Some mention going into Dimensions 7A following 5B Stand Ed so I want to make sure I understand the differences. Sounds like the Elementary math is especially challenging and not complete in its resources. Any other options or insights?

    With whom? Yes, it is just an informal document. Not carefully reviewed, but a start.
