See series description for full review.

Primary Mathematics 1A (U.S. Edition) is comprised of a textbook and a workbook. The main feature of this package is the use of the Concrete Pictorial Abstract approach. The students are provided with the necessary learning experiences beginning with the concrete and pictorial stages, followed by the abstract stage to enable them to learn mathematics meaningfully. This package encourages active thinking processes, communication of mathematical ideas and problem solving.

The textbook is comprised of 9 units. Each unit is divided into parts. Each part starts with a meaningful situation for communication and is followed by specific learning tasks. The textbook is accompanied by a workbook. Each place where the textbook is linked to the workbook exercises is denoted by an arrow with the words "Workbook Exercise".

Practice exercises are designed to provide the students with further practice after they have done the relevant workbook exercises. Review exercises are provided for cumulative reviews of concepts and skills. All the practice exercises and review exercises are optional.

A square color patch is used to invite active participation from the students and to facilitate oral discussions. The students are advised not to write on the color patches.

I have enjoyed using Primary Mathematics for my daughter. Even thought it started out a little easy for her in first grade, I'm glad that I started her on the correct grade level because she has developed her math skills with understanding. By using this series from the beginning, we understand how the authors are explaining things and do not have to try to figure it out. I have not used the teacher's books so far with the series. I think that if the parent/teacher has a reasonable level of understanding of basic math, they will be able to teach a child directly from the textbook. The student workbook, however, is essential for student practice. Overall, we really like this series!
