Is anyone familiar with both SM 6 and DM 7?  Could you provide a compare/contrast for me? 


My mathy DS will soon complete Singapore Math Standards 5b.  We've been doing SM since K, with some Right Start thrown in (love that abacus!).  I recently found out that SM 6 does not have all the problems worked out, just answers, especially for the workbook.  I'm not sure that this is a good fit for me because it's very helpful to see problems solved in a step-by-step manner.  I thought about moving to a different curriculum, but since Singapore has worked so well for us through the years, I'm hesitant to jump ship. 


Jenny at SM suggested that my DS could move from SM 5b to Discovering Math 7, without gaps.  So I'm trying to decide whether I should spend the extra time to work out problems in advance in SM 6 a/b, or move on to DM 7. 


Thanks for your help!
