Challenging Word Problems for the Primary Mathematics series provides not only ample practice of graded exercises for students of mixed abilities but also offers better math students with challenging questions. This series is written to supplement and complement Singapore's Primary Mathematics textbooks, both U.S. and Standards Editions, distributed by Singapore Math Inc.® for use in the U.S. and Canada.
Adopting a topical approach in which mathematical concepts and skills are taught and reinforced, Challenging Word Problems is a six-book series for Primary Mathematics. The series, with one book for each level 1-6, serves to improve students' problem-solving skills and enhance their mathematical reasoning.
Each book in the series features the following:
