All Activityhttp://forum.singaporemath.com/discover/Singapore Math Forum - All ActivityenWhats 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.

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?Wed, 13 Jun 2018 00:15:36 +0000Grades 9-12 Math CurriculumThere 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.Tue, 12 Jun 2018 16:25:17 +0000Grades 9-12 Math CurriculumHi 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.Mon, 11 Jun 2018 19:10:15 +0000Tests?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.Fri, 08 Jun 2018 14:34:17 +0000Is Dimensions Math 8 Algebra I?It covers most of the topics in most algebra 1 texts. It is adequate preparation for algebra 2.Fri, 08 Jun 2018 14:32:30 +0000Tests?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?Sat, 02 Jun 2018 12:39:09 +0000Is Dimensions Math 8 Algebra I?Does Dimensions Math 8 fully cover algebra I?Sat, 02 Jun 2018 12:37:04 +0000Plans to discontinue any series?Good news. Thank you!Mon, 21 May 2018 16:39:04 +0000Plans to discontinue any series?There are no current plans to discontinue Primary Mathematics. It is still a good series.Mon, 21 May 2018 14:33:44 +0000Plans to discontinue any series?Are there plans to discontinue any series with the addition of Dimensions K-3?Mon, 21 May 2018 14:11:31 +0000Digital ResourcesThanks, Jenny!Mon, 30 Apr 2018 15:36:41 +0000Digital ResourcesThere are no online resources for these.Wed, 18 Apr 2018 14:39:10 +0000Digital ResourcesWhat kind of online resources are available for Dimensions 6 - 8?Mon, 16 Apr 2018 12:46:51 +00006B Workbook Page 137For (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?Fri, 13 Apr 2018 18:09:45 +00006B Workbook Page 137Hi, 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.Wed, 11 Apr 2018 16:31:34 +0000Introduction to bar diagrammingThe 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.htmlMon, 26 Mar 2018 14:33:14 +0000Introduction to bar diagrammingI 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?Sat, 24 Mar 2018 06:33:13 +0000Whats 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.Sun, 18 Mar 2018 16:03:44 +0000Whats 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?Sun, 18 Mar 2018 15:48:19 +0000TEKSWith whom? Yes, it is just an informal document. Not carefully reviewed, but a start.Wed, 28 Feb 2018 15:13:54 +0000TEKSWould it be possible to share this resource?Tue, 27 Feb 2018 19:45:03 +0000New Singapore Math SeriesIt is similar to Primary Mathematics, prior to the Common Core edition, but better..., at least for grades 1-5. It will be true to Primary Math more than to Common Core topics, though. There are periodic practices, reviews every half-semester, some challengers in the workbook.
You will have to keep an eye on the web site for when samples are up. The one problem is that the Home Instructor's Guide won't be ready this year, though textbooks, workbooks, teacher guides for grade K-1 likely will be by April. The Teacher's Guide will be usable, though, by homeschoolers. There will be a Home Instructor's Guide for grades 1-5, but later.Tue, 13 Feb 2018 01:48:21 +0000New Singapore Math SeriesHello, I was looking to buy standard ed for grade 1 and than I noticed the announcement that there is new series coming this spring. Can you provide more information? I have waited all this time and didnt want to rush now after looking at this banner. Should I wait for new series? Any info on how different would this be?
Thanks,Tue, 13 Feb 2018 01:34:43 +0000Primary math 6 vs. Dimensions Math 6Dimensions Math 7 is mostly pre-algebra. It might be sufficient for a science course, depending on the course. It does not cover factorization of polynomials. It would not be considered a complete high school algebra text, I don't think.Sun, 04 Feb 2018 16:29:12 +0000
