Rigorous non-Singapore Math??? in K-8 Curriculum Board Posted June 1, 2013 SchoolAid/Spunky? I've been looking through it and love it. I didn't like all the book changing etc with Singapore either. SchoolAid is quite rigorous and has an amazing spiral review built-in. Its an amish based math. The great thing about it, i its supposed to be all the rigorous, basic math from yr1-8 (since they usually don't have K, and stop at 8). The series is supposed to be easy enough for a person who has done that math to teach (so a person who has finished the level 8 math), and for one-room schoolhouses, so independant as possible. It has to encompass all children, from the late bloomers (bringing them upto grade) to challenging the gifted students. The math has to cover all the basics, very well, as one of those students may be a future community breadwinner, nd might open their own business (like the publishers of schoolAid themselves) so has to be able to do business related math easily, and be extremely comfortable with numbers in a non-technological format. (Certain dispensation may occur, yes, but I can't see a lot of businesses being able to use certain registers or software like MYOB). *All the above is my opinion based on my research of SchoolAid, and previous posts on here regarding such.
