  1. Whoops my bad. I was looking at the high school version, which is on clearance at Singapore Math. I'm in high school planning mode. Eek!! Lower Secondary is in stock.
  2. DS6 just started 1st grade. He worked through about 2/3 of Singapore Math 1A this summer. (I had hoped to keep him home and continue with Singapore Math this school year, but DH felt strongly about sending him to public school.) His school just adopted Eureka Math. Just glancing through the workbook they sent home today, it looks quite similar to Singapore Math. Is that right? What am I missing? What do people think of Eureka Math? My understanding is that it's free, but I've been lurking here for a while and never seen any mention of it, even though there's a lot of enthusiasm for Singapore Math.
  3. Have you heard of such a thing? My friend went to a local homeschool store to buy Singapore math and was told they don't carry it. She was fuzzy on the explanation, but came away with the impression it was for personal moral reasons of the owner of the shop. I hadn't heard of this, so I came here to find out if this was in any way a widespread problem. As in, if she goes to a different store, will she likely run into the same thing? (Bible belt here, if that matters)
  4. I have been reading posts from this forum, but this is the first time that I have posted. If anyone is searching for a math program, I just wanted to share this. I started with RightStart and Singapore Math. Later, by accident, I discovered Mortensen Math which is more tangible and fun, covering many math operations simultaneously. I hope that this review helps others in choosing a math program.
  5. This will be my first time teaching algebra, but my plan for fall for my son who is finishing up beast 5 now is Singapore 6 using Singapore math live. https://www.singaporemathlive.com I showed him AOPS prealgebra and Singapore 6 (well actually he just knew what it was like from doing Singapore 1-3 when he was younger) and he picked Singapore.
  6. A coupld have recommended Singapore Math. Which version should I link to if it's for all grades?
  7. Looking for suggestions for my DD (6th) - math seems to come naturally to her. I'm wondering what to do for 6th grade - last year she did Singapore 6 and Saxon 7/6. For this coming year I'm considering jumping her right into Jacobs Algebra w Dr Callahan. Has anyone else done this without doing Saxon 8/7 or some other pre-algebra course first? Thanks!
  8. What level is he at right now? Singapore Math has "Challenging Word Problems" books for 6th grade level. If he is into solid prealgebra territory, then, my suggestion would be to use the AOPS prealgebra book like @daijobu suggests. Also, there are the Math Olympiad books: http://store.moems.org/mm5/merchant.mvc?Screen=PROD&Product_Code=4141&Category_Code=OLYMPIADBOOKS - you can get any of them to practice Word Problems.
  9. My 7 year old is successfully doing Singapore math 3 (standards edition). For some reason the curriculum buying bug has hit and I was considering incorporating the Soroban abacus and curriculum for enrichment. Is this crazy? Anybody have experience with doing both? Or have experience with doing Soroban?
  10. You need to know how to teach the "Singapore way." This is provided in the Home Instructor's Guides. You can also get this from reading Elementary Mathematics for Teachers. If you want the benefit of a Singapore math education for your children, it won't work to teach them the math the way you learned it (unless you learned with a Singapore-style program) and then have them do the Singapore problems. The textbook and workbook go together. The problems in the textbook are to work on during instruction, and the workbook is for independent practice. Both are important. But if you absolutely must choose one or the other, choose the textbook. There are usually more problems, and they will include more difficult ones. (Another thing that I liked about the HIGs was that they had the mental math problems in them so I didn't have to go to an outside source.)
  11. then what? Anyone done Dimensions Math all the way through 8B? What subject course do you do after that? I'm looking ahead in trying to decide whether to stick with Singapore or go to AoPS after 5B...

  13. My 5th grader (11) and my 4th grader (9) are both using Singapore 5A for math. (Just the normal workbook. Not the IP or CWP.) Daily, they miss more than half of their problems on their math workbook assignments. I am wondering if this is normal? If not, what can I do to correct it? I always grade their math right away and have them fix any problems they miss. And they typically can always fix them. (Sometimes it takes a few attempts.) Additional Information: They understand the math. They are just making mistakes. (Example: Subtracting incorrectly. Forgetting to add the digits that they carried when multiplying. Writing too sloppy. Etc. etc. ) This is not a new problem. This has been ongoing for years. Looking back on their past workbooks, they are missing more than half the problems each day for YEARS. (And then then they go back and fix until 100%.) My fear is that I have done something inadvertently to cause (or allow) careless work in math. If they are both doing the same thing, that probably means it is an instructional problem....right? Where did I go wrong, and what can I do at this point considering we might have some deeply ingrained bad math habits. :) I don't think the problem is specific to Singapore math. I've tried giving them worksheets from math mammoth, and the same thing happens. They even do the same thing with easier problems. For example, I even had them go back and complete the 4th grade math mammoth review workbook just to try and get them used to not being careless with easier problems. Daily, they still missed about half the problems and would do their math assignments twice. My concerns: Wasted instructional time: Today, for example, my 11 year old spent about 60 minutes to do 8 long division problems (with remainder). He got 3 of them correct. My 9 year old got 4 of them correct. That is less than 50%. So we graded the page and I had them fix the incorrect problems. They spent about another 45 mins fixing the math problems. Because they are getting so many incorrect, they essentially have to do their math assignments twice every day. That makes for a LOOOOOONG day for them. (And I am only assigning 8 problems!) I was hoping that fixing their math everyday and redoing it would eventually teach them to be careful and try their best the fist time, but that doesn't seem to be working. (After years of trying this same approach, I think I need to try something new.) In the past my theory has been that they just need more practice. So I have assigned them more problems of the same type. But the same thing just keeps happening day after day after day. Future math classes: Someday, they might need to take an outside class for math. I am worried that poor math habits will effect their grade. Imagine if they get a 40% on every homework assignment? Any other ideas on things I can do?

  15. So, for 1A it is saying he needs to memorize number bonds through 10. So, how do you know they have them memorized? I know that sounds dumb. Ds understands and can write them all out from memory. Is this good? I mean he thinks about it, he doesnt know it instantly. How do I make sure he realky has them down? I hope that makes sense what I am asking.
  16. We use Right Start. I like it for the presentation and the fact that the early levels have a minimal amount of written work. They have a great math games book that is divided up by topic so it can be used to supplement other curriculum. That book and a set of basic number cards and corners cards and multiplication cards would be perfect for second to third grade to go along with Singapore math. I concur not to start anything until after the holidays.
  17. For kindergarten? As long as she doesn't need something actually scripted, I'd consider these "open and go" in the sense that you can just look at and do: HWOT: Letters and Numbers for Me, one page a day Singapore Math Kindergarten B (assuming baby has already heard of numbers and can do a little counting), textbook only, 10-20 minutes a day Phonics Pathways for both phonics and spelling, 15 minutes a day or until baby is tired Read picture books aloud to student, minimum 3 a day. We liked having an author of the week and reading several by the same person. science: Get library books from the children's non-fiction section on one topic a week, look at them, and talk. (Plants, animals, magnets, etc.) social studies: Go places and talk about how they work (post office, library, grocery store, farmers' market, fire station). Ensure that child can recite full name, address, and a phone number.
  18. I don’t have much knowledge/background in statistics and this math problem is not really explained in the teachers guide! singapore math 6B workbook pg 119 there is a table of men versus woman callers to a quiz on a radio station with 6 out of the 15 calls being men. what is the probability that the 16th caller is male? what is the probability that the 100th caller is female? I feel like I should know how to do this but I don’t and none of the problems that are demonstrated in the textbook are really similar conceptually.

  20. My son was this way. He told me once that teaching was cheating. He would NOT let me teach him math. He had to puzzle it out himself, and there were days when it was so hard that he would cry in frustration. But he still wouldn't let me help. But he was so driven, and loved math so much that I decided to stay out of the way. Only later did I find out that he thought using a textbook explanation was also cheating. So I'm not quite sure how he learned fractions or any primary school math, I guess trial and error and the answers in the back of the book. He used the Intensive Practice books in Singapore Maths because he had to do math in word problem format as he would NOT EVER drill. EVER. With a child who is dreading math, the first thing I would do is stop Singapore Math for a bit, find a different program to use that would be suitable for self teaching, and let her self teach. What about Dragonbox for an algebra introduction, or people talk about some hands on geometry program (Patty paper geometry?). Something that is designed to be learned intuitively. Get the love back. And then slowly reintroduce her to Singapore math, and see if she can self-teach. When my son was self-teaching, one of the requirements I had was if there were tears, you had to stop for 5 minutes. And if you were really frustrated (and I could tell), you had to let me teach you *very briefly* about the topic. At one point I hid his math books until he would agree to my terms. Mental health is just as important as physical health. And crying over math is not OK from my point of view. Good Luck! Ruth in NZ

  22. Singapore Math uses number bonds but doesn't belabor them and doesn't involve tons of drawing (I help at an afterschool program where many of the kids' homework is Eureka). It might feel familiar but not focus on the stuff that he hates...and if you're starting with second grade, there's only a little bit in the beginning - I think they were done with them after that. Eureka always feels like badly implemented Singapore Math to me.
  23. My dd will be going to public school again next year and they will be doing Singapore math. I will be working with her over the summer to beef up the math skills she failed to learn during school, but I really want her to get some mental math strategies down. This is a child who cannot add 10 to a number without writing it down. She does have trouble with questions like this also - "4+____=12. She does know her math facts for the most part. I have looked at the Singapore mental math series, but what level? Also, are there other workbooks out there that could help?
