Product Description

Singapore's Visible Thinking in Mathematics is a supplemental program that's perfect for students who could use additional guidance on the pictorial stage of Singapore's Concrete> Pictorial> Abstract method. Step-by-step explanations and strategies will help students visualize concepts--encouraging them to learn how to solve problems by "seeing them"--before they move on to more abstract skills. Questions develop a mastery of the actual concepts involved by presenting students with problems that feature the same context with different words, helping them to firmly grasp the difference between similar concepts. Critical thinking is also encouraged through questions that ask students to think about the ways in which they solved the problem.

Visible Thinking Math 1B is designed for the second-semester of Grade 1. Each chapter features a "thinking platform" page that models the concept through examples; teaching notes at the bottom of the page provide a lesson focus for the teacher. This lesson-page is followed by the "Attaining Mastery" worksheet pages. Concepts taught in this 1B text include: comparing mass; collecting and organizing data; counting to 40; multiplication word problems; and money.

145 consumable (non-reproducible) pages, softcover. 1st Grade. Answer key is included in the back of the book. Please note that this series has not been revised to reflect US-norms, and thus currency images in the money chapters are Singapore coins and bills. In addition, only metric measurement units are used.

    This is a good book to supplement students work but there are some notable issues. The value is not the same as the text and workbooks. First of all, this book is very text heavy. The reading level is fairly difficult so I would guess in most cases a parent or teacher must be present to do the reading or explain what the problem is asking.

    Also, the tests often test on skills not covered in the book. The same is said for the testing books sold by them. They don't always match up exactly with the material.

    For example, in this visible thinking book the graphing lessons practice graphing with the value of each picture in the picture graph equaling one....until you get to the test. Then they have the pictures equaling 2 or 3 wich they haven't previously practiced. Little things like that are annoying. You can't actually use the tests to get a true representation of what they know.

    I will use this when I have some time to sit down and work one-on-one. There are valuable lessons here that add extra critical thinking practice.
