Mathematics for Elementary School by Tokyo Shoseki
Mathematics for Elementary School is a Japanese textbook & workbook series that has been translated into English.
These textbooks were written by Japanese mathematics educators, mathematicians, and accomplished Lesson Study practitioners. The books introduce a limited number of topics each year, and go beyond procedural to conceptual understanding. They definitely remind you of Singapore Math. The topics covered end up being a bit ahead of typical US curricula towards the latter years of the elementary.
Prices: Textbooks about $25 per grades 1-6, and $35 per grades (7-9); workbooks about $23 per grade.
