Mimm Posted March 14, 2012 Share Posted March 14, 2012 My kids are almost done with the math that we have on hand so I ordered the next ones from Rainbow. The box just arrived moments ago and I opened it up and as I was flipping through the textbook realized it was all printed in lots of colors. I bought the Standards edition rather than the US edition! Tell me this will be ok? I can help them get caught up on anything that wasn't introduced properly in the US edition (I read that the Standard has some extra emphasis). Part of what gives me pause is that my younger daughter will be finishing out a grade soon and starting the next, but my older daughter will be in the middle of grade 5 when it'll switch over from US to Standards. What kinds of issues will this cause for us? Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...

nmoira Posted March 14, 2012 Share Posted March 14, 2012 It's my understanding that you can move with little difficulty from a US "B" level to the next Standards "A" level. Jenny on the Singaporemath.com boards should be able to tell you where there might be issues with Standards 5B. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...

Crimson Wife Posted March 14, 2012 Share Posted March 14, 2012 Here is the TOC for 5B SE: 7 Decimals 1 Tenths, Hundredths and Thousandths 2 Approximation 3 Add and Subtract Decimals 4 Multiply and Divide Decimals by a 1-Digit Whole Number Practice A 5 Multiplication by Tens, Hundreds or Thousands 6 Division by Tens, Hundreds or Thousands 7 Multiplication by a 2-Digit Whole Number 8 Division by a 2-Digit Whole Number 9 Multiplication by a Decimal 10 Division by a Decimal Practice B REVIEW 7 8 Measures and Volume 1 Conversion of Measures Practice A 2 Volume of Rectangular Prisms Practice B REVIEW 8 9 Percentage 1 Percent 2 Writing Fractions as Percentages Practice A 3 Percentage of a Quantity Practice B REVIEW 9 10 Angles 1 Measuring Angles 2 Finding Unknown Angles 3 Sum of Angles of a Triangle 4 Isosceles and Equilateral Triangles 5 Drawing Triangles 6 Sum of Angles of a Quadrilateral 7 Parallelograms, Rhombuses and Trapezoids 8 Drawing Parallelograms and Rhombuses REVIEW 10 11 Average and Rate 1 Average Practice A 2 Rate Practice B REVIEW 11 12 Data Analysis 1 Mean, Median and Mode 2 Histograms 3 Line Graphs 4 Pie Charts REVIEW 12 13 Algebra 1 Algebraic Expressions Practice A 2 Integers Practice B 3 Coordinate Graphs REVIEW 13 And here is the one for 5B US Ed. 1. Decimals Approximation and Estimation Multiplication by Tens, Hundreds or Thousands Division by Tens, Hundreds or Thousands Multiplying by a 2-digit Whole Number Conversion of Measurements REVIEW A 2. Percentage Percent Writing Fractions as Percentage Percentage of a Quantity 3. Average Average 4. Rate Rate 5. Graphs Line Graphs REVIEW B 6. Triangles Sum of Angles of a Triangle Isosceles and Equilateral Triangles Drawing Triangles 7. 4-sided Figures Parallelogram, Rhombuses and Trapezoids Drawing Parallelograms and Rhombuses 8. Tessellations Tiling Patterns 9. Volume Cubes and Cuboids Finding the Volume of a Solid REVIEW C REVIEW D REVIEW E (extra review exercises on customary measurements) Looking at the two, they seem fairly similar only the US Ed. has tessellations (minor topic) and the SE has the chapters on probability/statistics and algebra.

I might just go ahead and use it and anything she comes across that hasn't been introduced (if something comes up) we'll just pause and cover it it more thoroughly.
