Singapore Math's Discovering Mathematics
series focuses on teaching students integrated pre-algebra, algebra, geometry, trigonometry, and advanced math topics effectively. Various approaches are used to present topics, including an intuitive or an experimental approach for some. Teacher involvement is required to teach this program. Discovering Mathematics 1A is designed for Grades 7-8. 218 full-color pages, softcover.
Features include: Worked examples followed by a similar Try It! question for students to ensure they understand the concepts. Lesson exercises include Basic Practice (simple questions involving a direct application of the concepts), Further Practice (more challenging questions) Maths@Work (questions that apply mathematical concepts to real-life situations), and Brainworks (questions involving higher order thinking or an open-ended approach to problems). Each chapter is followed by a review exercise, an Extend Your Learning Curve activity, and questions requiring sentence or paragraph answers for reflecting on learning experiences.
The answer key at the back of the book provides answers to the Try It! and the problems in the exercises for the Basic Practice, Further Practice, and Maths@Work questions. It does not include answers to the class activities, Brainworks questions, or the Extend Your Learning Curve activities; those answers are found in the sold-separately Teacher's Guide.
Book 1A covers factors and multiples, real numbers, estimation, algebra, simple equations, angles and parallel lines, triangles and polygons, and more.
