  2. Bolding mine. What kind of problems do you see with the (older) kids you teach and their understanding of variables? I feel like the difficulties we tend to see in teens/adults who have been doing algebra and higher maths for a while can be traced back to a lack of number-sense. It holds true for me, anyhow. I went all the way to pre-calc, still unable to add 5+4 in my head instantly [part of it was a bit of an OCD tic where I had to count the dots in each number]. But I was able to get past that after teaching math to my son. We used the cuisinare rods and they were awesome for him (and I benefited a lot too!) He was not into drawing or building diagrams (not even dot diagrams) so having the rods to function as pre-drawn diagram pieces (and also as building blocks to play with a la miquon style) helped him a lot. It sounds like your daughter might be past the stage of benefiting from them, but it's not like they will hurt anything if you give them a shot. I taught my son from Singapore Math through 3rd grade, and teaching all of the different ways of thinking about the problems helped me (and him) better understand how the numbers relate to each other. We're currently using Life of Fred. I love it from a geeky perspective. Planning to go back to Singapore Math once we've finished their intermediate math series.
  3. We have been using Singapore Math for past 3 yrs and it’s going great.I got Beast academy beginning of the year and we just did couple of chapters and didn’t have time and recently finished 3A.I had purchased Guide and Practice book 3A and 3B.We are going to continue Singapore Math as Main curriculum planning to do Beast academy as supplement.We are going very slow and don’t do it regularly. We finish most of the SM during summer break.We use SM textbook and workbook.Can I skip guide book for BA and just get practice book?.Will we miss out anything?. Thanks.

  5. I'm hoping someone will have some suggestions for what to do with my five year old. He is showing himself to have a natural bent for math and loves it. He is always mentally calculating, and with little instruction is able to do mental math, knows multiplication up to 12's, division is coming along, basic addition and subtraction are easy for him. He needs a more accelerated curriculum and I'm not sure the best way to keep him going. If it's too easy, he's very bored, and starts making up ways to make the problems more difficult. That or starts making chicken sounds, arg! We started out with Right Start A, but quickly skipped halfway into B, but much of that is too easy. I don't want to skip too many steps and make sure all the bases are covered, but he doesn't need lengthy explanations or activities to help him understand the concepts, he just gets numbers and relationships. Any advice? Move to Right Start C? I feel that getting through all of the Right Start lessons can be so very slow. The explanations of concepts and games are great, and work really well for my other children, but I'm not sure if sticking with the curriculum is a good fit for him, or if it will be at the right level or accelerated pace. Some have said Singapore math is quicker in pace - any experience with that? We also do Life of Fred as a supplement (which we love!) Is it advisable to skip levels? Or just try to go through faster? Are there any curriculum choices out there that would work better? Thanks in advance for any suggestions!
  6. Hi all, Thanks in advance for the help. My son is in fifth grade and using the Math Mammoth sixth grade curriculum. I'm at the point where I feel like we may need to switch because he is so miserable. He was homeschooled for his early elementary years, then he attended a montessori school for two years, and then a gifted school. I feel like his math has been a little bit all over the place. He is way above grade level in certain areas, and yet there are areas he seemed to have completely missed out on in school. We used the Singapore math curriculum and Miquion through his second grade year. He has always excelled in math but is definitely not a "mathy" kid. He is the kind of child who gets frustrated easily if something doesn't instantly click for him, but also gets frustrated by too much fluff. This year I was really hoping for consistency so pulling the plug mid year on a curriculum is not what I have been hoping to do. From the beginning of the year he has been miserable with the program. He is technically doing well but math is a daily struggle and takes him forever. Sometimes it feels like he doesn't connect with the way the program is explaining things and it often feels short on actual instruction in the sixth grade book. Do I push him to keep going and finish out the year? Do I switch curriculums? I fear he is beginning to really hate math. If I were to switch at this point, can you suggest some different curriculums? I've been interested in Right Start but I know he would probably be in their last year at this point. Saxon? What do you suggest? Thank you.
  7. I'm looking into Singapore math and many of the items available interest me. I want to be able to teach it with the text book. I was wondering if the workbook is a place to write out problems from the textbook like what you might use a "scratch" paper for, or if the two products are necessary to use together. Is it beneficial to use a practice book, or does it increase the workload significantly. I was thinking about buying the practice books instead of the textbook workbooks. Do you think it's more beneficial to actually purchase the textbook workbook? I also wanted to look into the Singapore math step-by-step problem solving, critical thinking, and the challenges workbooks. If you have any input on those it would be appreciated. *I noticed the practice book I was thinking of is a Frank schaffer publication. Have any of you used this as a supplemental practice book with Singapore math. I also noticed that the "Singapore math" books are an offshoot as well. I would still value input on those as well. I'll look through available posts to see if this has been covered recently.

  9. Probability is covered in any of the Zaccaro Challenge books. It's only one chapter though. It's covered in Singapore Math starting in 4B. It comes up as a topic in Glen Ellison's Hard Math for Elementary as well. Julie at Living Math has a list of readers about probability here: https://www.livingmath.net/probability-and-data
  10. Hi! I was wondering if any of you have any tips on how I could go about using Math U See with Singapore Math for my five year old. Should I rotate each day with which program that I use or should I do a lesson from each book every day?
  11. I use "just" the HIG, the textbook, and the workbook. I do not use any of the extra books. My kids have done fine with this approach, and test about 4 grades ahead in math. I don't say that as a brag. I don't have especially gifted kids or anything. I am just saying that Singapore math is that good even if you don't supplement it. The great thing about Singapore is that it provides just enough practice. Give a kid too many math problems per day, and they start to hate/dread math. Give a kid too little practice, and they don't develop a strong foundation. (And you want a rock solid foundation in grades 1-5 because everything builds upon previous concepts.) So that is the point of the extra practice books. A typical child will do fine with "just" the HIG/TB/WB. However, some kids are slower learners and NEED more math practice than a typical child. Those are kids who might need the extra practice book. Some kids are very gifted and would become bored with the standard workbook problems. Those are kids who might need the IP books. Some kids need help with *just* the mental math sections. (Singapore makes a book for that.) Some kids need help with word problems (Singapore makes a book for that.) Some kids get everything but need more help with the bar models. (Singapore makes a book for that.) In other words, all of the extra books are used to help you troubleshoot and customize your math instruction. I wouldn't start out with any of the extra books personally. I would wait and see if you need them. (Especially in 1st grade. You want your child EXCITED about math... You want your child to LOVE math. In order to do that, you need quick but efficient and thorough lessons with just enough practice.) I used to think all of the Signaproe books was a drawback to the problem. But I am finishing up my last year of Singapore (sniff sniff), and I now see that the extra books are a great way to customize the program. My approach to Singapore: 1) I teach the entire lesson as written in the HIG. If it says to play a game, I would probably play a game. :) 2) I then work some example problems WITH the child from the textbook. If the child seems to be getting it, I may not work every problem. I will sort of scan and look for tricky ones or slightly different problems to test for understanding. If the child seems to struggle at all, I work every problem from the textbook WITH them. (Typically we use a white board for this.) 3) I then give the child the workbook and they work the assigned pages semi-independently. In first grade, I probably still sat there next to them cheering them on and helping them to feel excited about math. As they got older, they can do it more and more independently. Stick close by to answer questions...that type of thing. 4) Next, the child grades their workbook with my help. I try to turn this over to them as early as possible so they learn to take ownership of their work. I give them a highlighter and have them read their answers. I tell them if they got the problem correct or not. (I do not read the answers.) They circle any wrong answers, then go back and fix their work. Then we regrade. In other words, we don't move on until every workbook page is 100% correct. This also subtly encourages them not to make careless errors. Speeding through their work often makes the lesson longer, not shorter. (festina lente and all that.) Doing it this way, we haven't personally needed any extra practice until we got to long division. But even then, instead of buying a whole book, we just used sample problems/worksheets available online. (BTW--long division seems to be a common rough spot.) Once the child conceptually understands addition, I also add in daily xtra math practice for math facts. I go in and edit the settings giving them 6 seconds to add when they first start since little kids take longer to type in an answer. We do math fact practice daily throughout elementary using xtra math....even in 5th grade. :) Howerver, my kids are dsylexic and tend to need extra review with things like that. Regarding tests: I feel like the tests are more worthwhile for classes. We use the "Standards Version" of Singapore which includes frequent reviews at the end of every section. I use these as our tests. (Although I don't call them tests. I just use them to sniff out any weak spots.) We spend 2 days on the review since they are longer. When they are finished, we grade together and then they fix any missed problems. (we keep on regrading until they get them 100% correct.) I look for any weak spots on these reviews. If they miss a lot of a certain type of problem, I know their understanding is shaky. Another sign I look for is a problem that is missed, but they can't figure out how to fix it. We do not move on if any topics are shaky. If we have any weak spots, I will reteach the content using the HIG, and then work more example problems on the board. (I just use old problems from the textbook or workbook on the board. Or make up similar problems.) Then, I give them the Review from the textbook as a 'retest' to make sure they are no longer "shaky" in those areas. That has always cleared things up. (Except of course when we got to long division. We personally had to hang out there for awhile, but they eventually got it.)

  18. I use the FAN math Process Skills in Problem Solving and Express Math books with my dd who uses CLE since CLE is weak in word problems and mental math skills . We started well below grade level and moved through them at a rate of a few a year. She did not do well with Singapore math curriculum but she does do well with these.
  19. Hi, We have been using the standards edition of Singapore math since 4th grade. My son is in 6th currently and it turns out they no longer produce a home instructor's guide for this grade level....grr. The only option is the very pricey teacher's guide. Has anyone used the grade 6 level without the guide? I like the guide, it gives me nice background info, alternative approaches, and the answers! Don't know if I can stomach spending $60 after shipping on it. It would be difficult to switch to the US edition at this point, so not sure what to do.
  20. Oh yes! Maybe I should just do AOPS pre a. Most people seemed to go straight from Singapore math 5 if they were doing that but I think part of the problem is the change in format so that could help. Your kids did calculus in 7th grade?! Is that typical or are they fairly advanced?

Here's my conundrum. I find myself really drawn to Ambleside online. I also know myself well enough that I like and need things planned out for me, such as FLL and WWE. And AO doesn't cover grammar explicitly anyway, so I think they are very compatible. But I also don't want to overload my daughter (or myself). And then I feel SOTW would just end up getting dropped, but I do love it, as well. Can I get input on blending AO with the more structured approach of WTM materials? I don't want to just ignore the recommended reading and resources of WTM to do AO. I'm sure it's much simpler than I'm making it- but I'm spazzing out a little bit right now. HA!
  22. We did do Singapore up through 6A/B. While I know some people like to skip that level, I thought it was time well-spent getting solid in multi-step problem-solving and in having to set up more complex types of problems that were good prep for Algebra. Perhaps continue through Singapore 6A/B since DS can do a lot of it independently, and add is some fun supplements (see below) to enjoy together when you can join DS?? Or, if Singapore has been a good fit for your student and you are stopping after Singapore 5A/B, you might consider Beast Academy 5 or Math Mammoth -- both of which are closer to Singapore. The Beast Academy 5 would also set you up to transition into AoPS Pre-Algebra. If you need something mostly self-directed, you might look at Teaching Textbooks. It is much closer to Saxon and to traditional math instruction and approach. If you want a different "spin" you might look at Life of Fred (though, it would NOT be largely-independent): - Life of Fred gr. 4-6 topics -- Kidneys, Liver, Mineshaft - Life of Fred Pre-Algebra -- #0 = "with Physics", #1 = "with Biology", #2 = "with Economics" For things that are more "fun", you might check out these -- NOTE: none are full-year, complete math programs: Jousting Armadillos Hands On Geometry (Freeman) Patty Paper Geometry (Serra) TOPS units: Metric Measuring; Graphing; Probability And for some fun supplements: Dragonbox Geogbra Challenge Math (Zoccaro) Real World Math (Clemson) Number Devil (Enzensberger) Adventures of Penrose the Mathematical Cat (Pappas) Fractals, Googles and Other Mathematical Tales (Pappas) Fascinating Fibonnaccis (Seymour) Exploring the World of Mathematics (Tiner) Secrets of Mental Math (Benjamin) More ideas in these past threads: Finishing Singapore 5B - move to MUS? SM Standards users -- where to go after 5b? After Singapore 5... Which math after Singapore 5? Another "after Singapore 6" post What program after Singapore/MM 6? After Singapore? Which Pre-Algebra is like Singapore? Singapore Math 6B then Jacob Algebra?
  23. Ok in a crazy moment I thought I’d attempt reading some Euclid. Seems unfair to expect my kids to keep educating themselves and not me right but in the first section of definitions I hit this 32. A rhombus is that which has all its sides equal, but its angles are not right angles: I’m pretty sure in building critical thinking skills and Singapore math a square was defined as being a rhombus? Do I just remember that wrong or is the definition different depending on the text?
  24. If a child has done Singapore Math through most of 6B, and are having a rocky start to Jacob's Algebra, would you do a prealgebra program, even though you would not need much of it, or would you do Keys to Algebra? In the past, we have done Keys to. He says he would like to just do the Keys to. He hasn't really tried much else and even if we did preAlgebra, he would not need the entire time. He just needs to get comfortable with using variables.
  25. If I think about what math resources were helpful in guiding me along the elementary years: Ruth Beechick's math booklet Singapore Math's A Handbook for Mathematics teachers in primary schools Ronit Bird's dyscalculia materials Liping Ma's book: https://www.amazon.com/Teaching-Elementary-Mathematics-Understanding-Fundamental/dp/0415873843 I'll give some thought about my journey through jr high and high school mathematics. I am NOT mathematically inclined at all but my dh and older ds very much are and so we had to find a common language to talk about math in order to help me in teaching it. (Right now, trig is killing my brain.)
