think! Mathematics is a series of textbooks and workbooks adapted from the New Syllabus Primary Mathematics series that has been approved by the Ministry of Education (MOE) in Singapore. Written in accordance with extensively researched approaches in Singapore, it adopts a spiral design with the integration of the concrete-pictorial-abstract (CPA) approach, careful variation and the use of problem solving, which are the integral features of the learning process.
Based on time-tested learning theories, this series incorporates the use of concrete manipulatives. In think! Mathematics, these features are exemplified throughout the series:
Well-structured exercises which are developed in accordance with the lesson objectives of each chapter.
Comprises higher-order thinking tasks as enrichment for students to apply relevant heuristics and extend the concepts and skills learnt.
Provides students with opportunities to show their understanding of mathematical concepts learnt.
Follows after each chapter for consolidation of concepts learnt in the chapter
Provides an assessment of the consolidation of concepts and skills across strands and topics.
