  1. Good points. Math Mammoth was a fail with my oldest and I see it being a fail for the same reasons with my other boys (pages too crowded, etc). But Singapore math is an idea... I used it several years ago and liked it, we ended up switching partly because it was a bad fit for my daughter and I was still trying to keep everyone in the same math back then ? and partly because I was letting the curriculum be my master instead of my servant. ?I think I could use it again and do better with it this time. My youngest is just TK and I do think I will stick with RS over Singapore for him this year, he's not ready for the amount of writing/lack of fun in essentials (I have used that before). Unless someone writes my heart's desire program in the next two weeks... If right start math and cuisenairre rods/miquon had a baby, that math program is what I want. LOL Eta: you know right start is pretty much the math equivalent of AAR. And that program made me want to poke my eyes out. ? I used it with both my middle two, but neither finished it. None of us could take it anymore.

  3. We've changed every single thing since we started school in late July, at least once... So, misses: Sonlight PreK, A, C I've finally come to see that I don't like having a nitty gritty syllabus. It stresses me out. And I like to take history much, much slower. And Bible, too. Sonlight LA C and A: too many bits and pieces and not enough practice and direct instruction. Too much writing about made up subjects. I'm a CM Narration lover at heart. Sonlight A and C Science: not enough cohesiveness or true study of "science" as it's own art Math U See: my kids don't like worksheets and they like tutoring style math Handwriting Without Tears, Print: the second grader doesn't need more print practice Saxon: too tight of a spiral, not enough thinking about math Singapore Math Kindergarten: the K4 was bored to tears doing a full on mastery program FLL: too much grammar at this point, too dry...we just did a few days Spelling You See: too repetitive, too many tears! Apologia: entirely too much text and entirely too creationist But we've managed success! Here are our hits! Bible reading and picture journaling from the Ambleside Online schedule Bible Scripture memory from Simply Charlotte Mason All About Spelling Queen Homeschool Cursive for the second grader, print for the Kindergartener MEP Math for the K4 and 2nd grader Real Science Odyssey, Earth and Environment Story of the World 2 with activity books and supplemental literature All About Reading, PreReading for the K4 Second grader reads aloud and narrates to me Principles from The Complete Writer for the 2nd grader; I give her copywork and she copies her history narrations.
  4. I wonder if I should switch to Horizon's with my younger ones. I taught with Singapore Math in a private school long ago, as in, back when the 3rd edition was still being used. I really liked it. So when my oldest insisted on Horizon's and refused to do Singapore, I was disappointed. I own all the textbooks (but some are 3rd edition but really, those can be used interchangeably with US edition). My one who was very successful with Singapore Math now seems to struggle with math. I am sure it is just him. But I really am wondering if I went the wrong direction with choosing the math with my youngers. I also liked BJU too, but, I disliked how the publisher stopped making the home educators edition of the TM and started pushing expensive classroom stuff for all. I love that Horizon's is workbook all the way through. I have also been curious about CLE.
  5. We are using Singapore Math now (not my oldest child). He is in level 5A. I am trying to decide if he should continue through 6B. And then NEM looks great. Or, if I should leave at some point and do an American pre algebra. My older one went straight to Jacob's algebra, and did some Keys to Algebra in there. I think maybe, in my dream world, we would go through NEM before switching to American sequence. But it looks like that might not be practical. He is not ahead of grade level at all and it might just slow things up drastically for a child who is already behind schedule.
  6. Does anyone know in the actual "Singapore Math" curriculum if they work with 5 frames before doing 10 frames?

  11. Beast can absolutely stand alone, but for the right kid. Some kids need more practice. For them, Beast might still be a good side program or supplement, or it might not. I think you didn't really give enough information for anyone to know if Beast is the right program for your student though. And it can be hard to know. It's a really challenging program that requires a kid who is willing to be frustrated by not always being able to get the right answer right away, or possibly ever. You don't need a million different books to do Singapore math. Some people just use the workbook. Or just use the textbook and workbook. You don't even necessarily need the Home Instructor's Guide for this age. The large number of books in Singapore is really part of its flexibility as a program. I have only rarely heard of a student who does the textbook, workbook, extra practice, intensive practice, and the challenging word problems all in one year. However, there are other "rigorous" options in the same vein as Singapore but are laid out differently. There's Math Mammoth, which is just one worktext. There's Math in Focus, which is a Singapore math but looks more like an American textbook. I'm with your dh though... if you think your student is going to have a knack for math, I wouldn't do TT.
  12. One of my daughters is using Saxon Algebra 1 and is not making any progress. She is in 10th grade and has not even finished half of the book. Most of her work has too many mistakes. I am not sure what to do. She says she does not understand it. We have tried the DVDs for it, but it did not help. I tried Developmental Math Algebra 1, but that was too easy She did Singapore Math before and was an okay student, though very slow. I was wondering if I should switch to Mr. D. Math, but I am hesitant to try a different program. Mr. D would have her do his second semester of Algebra 1. She says she does not like a video program, but the Saxon textbook does not seem to do the trick either. She says she would like to continue with Saxon, but I don't see much hope in continuing. I don't want to spend a lot of money and I don't know if an online program would do the trick. I had her look at Teaching Textbooks, but she did not like that either. Any ideas?
  13. As EKS said up top, most people on this forum are referring to Primary Mathematics when they say Singapore Math. There are four versions of PM commonly used by home educators. The 3rd Edition (international and Singapore specific in flavor), the US Edition (based on the 3rd, but Americanized), the Standards Edition (that met CAs tougher math standards), and the newest CC Edition. All the favors of PM were based on materials written by the Singapore Ministry of Education. They are what shot Singapore to international attention when Singapore students started winning TIMMS competitions. Then Singapore decided to make changes. PM became the "old syllabus." New standard were written called the "new syllabus." This time the Ministry of Education elected not to write the actual textbooks, leaving that to competing textbook publishers. So several new syllabus series emerged on the Singapore market. One of the new syllabus math books is called My Pals Are Here! The publisher, Marshall Cavendish, made a deal with Houghton Mifflin to create a series aimed at the American market called Math-in-Focus based on My Pals Are Here! None of the textbooks from Singapore or their American derivatives are published by the singaporemath website. They do write and publish Home Instructors Guides that compliment Primary Mathematics. Further, there are a myriad of supplemental books published in Singapore that can be used in conjunction with either old or new syllabus textbooks. Long answer. The short one answer is most people mean Primary Mathematics when they speak of Singapore math. But..... Bill
  14. I have been using SM for years now homeschooling my children. I have found the left to right mental math and calculating such an essential part of SM. As essential as the bar modeling.It just makes so much sense to me. I wish I had been taught this as a child. Anyway recently I have been bumping into others that use SM and teach the usual borrowing and carrying over. Anyone do the same?

  16. I found that, I suspect that, my 11 yr old does better when we move quickly. We just finished 5A in 5 weeks. But, we did the lessons in the workbook, but then we did not do the review problems. We did all problems in the lesson portion. But on the pages where the page was just problems and labeled Practice 4A at the top or Review, we skipped. He did every problem in the workbook including correcting any missed problems before being considered done. Does this sound good? Or is it super bad to skip the textbook reviews and practice problems? Oh, and I supplement with Keys to Fractions so he had extra practice there. 5A was largely fractions.
  17. I used the US edition. I have already used it in the past. I remember being seriously frustrated with the higher levels. I remember having to supplement a lot by the end. Would it be worth it to switch to Standards? And would I just go straight across? Like, if he just finished 5A US edition, would be go in to 5B Standards? Edited to add: I do not not intend to use an HIG. If it relies heavily on a TM, I don't want it. I want an answer key and that is it.

  19. We have enjoyed using Rod and Staff Math the last 3 years; it's simple, straight forward, not busy, and gets the job more than done. I want to make sure he is rounded out this year before we start to Pre-Algebra next year. Really tho, I'd love to start introducing Pre-A this year but don't know where to start. I may grab a Beast Academy level. I have all the Singapore Math Word Problems and will be working thru those. . . Any other ideas or what have others done? I was looking Foersters Algebra, but didn't think they had a Pre-Alg. OH! I know many of have loved Jousting Armadillos maybe that would be a good segway to Foersters . . .

  21. My kids read widely and are very interested in science topics of their own accord. I don't really need to direct it. I make science a school subject only insofar as it is necessary to develop the discipline side of scientific endeavors. To that end, I far prefer a one-thing-at-a-time approach, because it's just more straightforward. Though sometimes a mixed-bag will get us where we need to go too, as is the case with the Science Detective series (referring back to specific lines of text) and the Singapore math junior high school science books (structured questions= guided analysis). ETA-- and all of that even could have just waited until high school, honestly, while they continued to be interested in science on their own. But they got on my nerves by talking about science all day, but in a disorganized and... mmm let's say foundationless... way.
  22. Story of the World. Absolutely loved it and can't wait to go through it again with my youngest. Singapore Math. Middle child grasps math quickly and intuitively but has slow processing speed. Anything that asked her to repeatedly do pages of problems would have just killed her love of math. As it is, she is going into 10th grade where she'll be doing Alg 2 honors the first semester and Trig the second semester. She wants to do as much math as she can in high school. Singapore math was perfect for her. ? Bravewriter. Middle was also a reluctant writer and this made her feel like writing was doable and maybe even sometimes fun. IEW

  24. Help! I'm new to homeschool and am putting together our own curricula and skipping the online packaged school. Can you help me evaluate my plan for 2nd grade math (fast learner, type A kid, very focused and driven). I need zero prep work, and we want Common Core so we can roll back into school if this doesn't work out. Singapore Math as our spine. supplement with Everyday Math (Common core). Plus an online program for when I need to keep him busy. We’ve narrowed that down to MobyMax or GreatMinds with Zearn. We will be doing the MAP tests twice a year to make sure we’re on target. Is 30-60 minutes/day enough? Any other suggestions for online programs are very welcome, I think my son would prefer to do most of his learning online, and I don't have time to prep. THANK YOU!
  25. Does anyone have any experience using Singapore Math 6B? If so, what did you use next? I was planning to do Jacob's Math (algebra) with Dr. Callahan because I have heard such great things. But when my dd did the 'are you ready' test on Dr. Callahan's site she missed more than I'm comfortable with. So now I'm revisiting the idea of a formal 'pre' algebra course. Singapore has hit on many of the concepts but I'm guessing not all (we've used their u.s. standards editions since first grade). Does anyone have a recommendation for what we should use prior to Dr. Callahan's Jacobs Math? Thanks so much!
