How To Choose The Right Singapore Mathematics Workbook Package For Your Child (1st Grade / Primary 1 To 6th Grade / Primary 6)
In Singapore, primary schools are not only using a particular package of Singapore Mathematics textbooks and workbooks to teach mathematics. They supplement the Singapore Mathematics textbooks and workbooks with supplementary Singapore Mathematics workbooks. Why? Because the Singapore Mathematics workbooks that come together with the Singapore Mathematics textbooks provide only minimal practice in the most fundamental mathematics concepts and mathematics skills. This is definitely not sufficient to give the child the necessary mathematics practice to make sure he can top the world in mathematics.
Supplementary Singapore Mathematics workbooks make up a significant part of Singapore's success recipe in education. They will provide your child with additional practice and drills beyond those covered in the Singapore Mathematics textbook and workbook packages. Almost every child in Singapore owns at least a few supplementary Singapore Mathematics workbooks. It is not uncommon for parents to buy dozens of supplementary Singapore Mathematics workbooks for their children. Supplementary Singapore Mathematics workbooks are also widely used in Singapore schools as part of their school curriculum, as well as tuition centres after school hours.
Supplementary Singapore Mathematics workbooks will provide your child with more exercises, which are often more difficult and challenging, than those in the Singapore Mathematics textbooks and workbooks. Some supplementary Singapore Mathematics workbooks provide only topical exercises, some provide only revision exercises, some provide only test papers, some provide only word problems, some provide only thinking skills exercises, and some provide a combination of two or more of the above.
So which supplementary Singapore Mathematics workbook packages should you use for your child? It all depends on what you want or what your child needs. We highly recommend that you get the SGBox Math Curriculum packages your child.
