  3. You should be able to sample it online on the HmHco site http://samples.hmhco.com/math_in_focus/index.php If your children have not done Singapore math before, they might need to back up a bit. Normally 4th grade would be books 4A and 4B It gets complicated when you get to 6th grade. MIF has a three year Pre-Algebra sequence starting in 6th (courses 1, 2 and 3). So 7th would technically be Course 2. However, for my kids, we went through Course 1 and then did Dolciani Pre-Algebra. I didn't feel they needed three years of Pre-Algebra.

  5. Not to evoke an old Eminem song, but I am looking for Singapore math, and am puzzled. It seems to be on a lot of different publishers' materials. I also found a singapore math dot com website. Can anything call itself Singapore Math that claims to teach by that method, and if so, how do I select one? Which do the members of TWTM community use and trust? Thanks for any help in sifting through all this!

  8. Good afternoon, all. I am hoping someone will have some words of wisdom for me here. My rising second grade daughter professes to 'hate' math and I feel like a horrible teacher because of it, to be honest. She is actually quite good at math. But when she decides she does not want to do something, she will just fidget, whine, and profess to "I don't KNOWWWW" when asked to solve problems, that I know she very well can solve, because she did them fine the day before. The past school year we had some rough days, but over all pretty good. We follow Singapore math and I do like the curriculum. In the spring we did book 2A, so for the summer I got her Intensive Practice 2A. I wanted to keep the summers pretty light, and my plan was to just have her do like 15-20 minutes of work in the book a day. Since we had already done the curriculum, I thought these problems wold just make her think deeper, using skills she already had. It has been horrible getting her to do it, though. The first few days were fine. Then she started with the whining. I would come over to the book and it would be like a basic addition problem that she had done countless times before. There were several days where she did absolutely nothing during her math time. I discussed the problem with her and asked her what she thought might help. We decided that she might work better if I sat right with her. So we did that and it worked for maybe 2 weeks. Today, however, she did the same thing-- fidgeting with her pencil, whining "I don't knowwww" etc etc. In 30 minutes we got like one problem done. She then walked away saying, "I hate math!" and I am sitting here feeling defeated. I like the curriculum and want to keep following it-- I am just looking, I guess, for tips to inspire her to care? Or at least to try? What can you tell me here, homeschool vets?
  9. My son would be in fourth grade if he were in school. However, none of our math curriculum is fourth grade math. We used Miquon math up through second grade, then switched over to Beast Academy about half way through his third grade year. At the beginning of his third grade year I also bought Singapore Challenging Word Problems, to do occasionally, to make sure he understood how to use numbers in real world examples. However, I thought the third grade book was too hard, so I bought second grade. At times we can move through math slowly, because I will stop our regular curriculum occasionally and teach him about binary numbers or the Fibonacci sequence. Just to show him that not all math is just arithmetic. There is a whole world awaiting him once he learns his basic math facts. We also stop sometimes just to play games to reinforce fractions or multiplication facts. Anyway, because of the way we've been moving through math, we just recently started the third grade Singapore Challenging Word Problems and we are still in third grade Beast Academy. For the past several months he has been calling himself stupid and thinks he's terrible at math because he is so "behind." I feel terrible because part of the reason we are "behind" is because we stop here and there to do other things and because we have moved twice during the summer/fall and school just didn't always happen as often as it should have. I don't feel behind at all, because I see him progressing and learning all the time. I think he's doing great. However, in an effort to build his self confidence, I decided to get him Teaching Textbooks, because I had heard they were usually a year or two behind other math programs. I looked through the grade levels and picked out sixth grade. I looked through the whole book and he already knows how to do everything in the book. Not all of it is necessarily easy, but he can do everything in there. I thought about going to a lower level, but I don't want his math to be all busy work. At first the plan seemed to be going well. Teaching Textbooks was super easy for him and he seemed to be gaining confidence. But the last several lessons have been causing stress again. Not because he's getting very many things wrong. He always gets a 95 or a 100 percent. But he's doing it on the computer and I hear screaming coming from the computer every day as he get's upset if he misses something (it gives you two tries on every problem). He rarely needs two tries, but when it does happen he becomes irrationally upset. Sometimes he will even storm out of the computer room and into his bedroom, slamming the door and talking about how stupid he is. So now I am at a loss. I personally prefer Singapore Math because it is a challenging program that really makes you think. I think in the end, after completing it, he will be able to approach problems more creatively than if he didn't do the program. I only switched because I don't want him to hate math. He is really very smart and I hate to hear him get down on himself. So what does everyone think? I hate to jump around from program to program too much. But I want him to regain his confidence and at least not hate math.
  10. I am a complete newbie starting to homeschool my 3rd and 1st grader this week! I purchased Singapore Standard 1A and 3A and, in reviewing the home instructors guide, I noticed that they broke it down into 43 lessons for 1st grade and 79 lessons for 3rd grade. Obviously, there's 90 days in the first half of the academic year. Should I have my 3rd grader do math almost daily and the 1st grader only a few days/week? Don't want to overload them, but certainly want to keep up the pace! Thank you!

  14. We are currently afterschooling ds and have loved using Singapore. I am ready to buy the next set but not sure what I need. I see textbook, workbook, teacher guides, home instructor guide and tests. Not sure what I need to purchase. Help! DS loves math as do I. I do not need step by step instruction for teaching him the concepts so would probably not use the teacher guides unless its not possible to figure out what they are asking for without it. Thanks!
  15. I just ran across this and wonder if anyone is using it? thoughts? does she not use a HIG or Textbook then? http://www.singaporemathlive.com/
  16. Do Singapore or Beast Academy ever run sales? Trying to decide when to buy for next year. I am going to look for the teacher guides to both used, and figure that would be better than sales anyway, but would love to get the workbooks at a discount. Are either of the workbooks legally reproducible? I know some companies allow it within a family and some don't. Thanks!

  18. I don't understand why they jump around like they do. In the past couple months they have just touched on a couple algebra concepts, then one geometry concept, then ratios, and now decimals. They've been doing decimals for about 1 week and the chapter test is tomorrow. I don't know what's next - maybe astronomy or geography. I know my kid is not the only one who won't retain any of this for more than 2 weeks. And another thing - they always have a semi-mandatory review before school on test days. The kids have to be there a half hour early. The teacher gives them the actual test questions and goes over them. This is awesome except for one thing. Kids who don't have a ride at that time have to miss the review. I really appreciate that the teacher does these reviews, but I'm not so thrilled that they always require a different transportation solution - and that I never find out until the night before. OK, I'm done whining now. :)
  19. I am really struggling and would really appreciate any help. We are pretty committed to Singapore math. However, I have a very rough foundation in math. I am hoping to be the primary math teacher for as long as I can, but my husband is the backup plan. With that being said, is there any help besides the Home Instructor's Guide for helping parents to grasp the concepts? We are only in Primary Mathematics 1B and it seems like I already have to spend way too much time trying to figure out what the Guide is saying. I wish it was more scripted. Any thoughts? Thanks!
  20. If your kids have a math that works, I'd stick with it unless there's a reason to change. We used Singapore Math through 6th and then picked a prealgebra (I'll make different choices for my 2 kids, who are very different personalities). If you wanted to combine SOTW with the K-12 HO so that both kids cover the same topic, that should be doable - one is a 4 year cycle and the other is 3, but you can align content. We actually use SOTW as one of our other resources when using K-12. I don't know your writing program. My older kid is advanced in most subjects but struggled with writing, so I didn't push it until middle school. For him, one thing that helped was combining history and writing because it was 'double dipping'. Around that age we found the Michael Clay Thompson series and it's been a great fit (I'm not advising you to change - just letting you know where some of the assignments come from). If the writing program said to write an essay about a specific topic, I'd modify it to fit with something in history and we'd write about that. Some history writing assignments are things that I design, but others are adaptations of assignments in our ELA curriculum. Is your program adaptable like that? It might help an overwhelmed kid to have fewer subjects to do. At this point (older in 8th grade) it's not as big of an issue, but I've already started doing it with my 5th grader (although those assignments are shorter - a sentence or 2 or maybe a paragraph). Alternatively, when writing for history doesn't fit, I've been known to go minimalist - to compare things, fold paper into 2, 3, 8, or more sections and have the kiddo compare things like Native American tribes, world religions, Athens and Sparta, etc with words, phrases, or even drawings. It can be less daunting than an essay. If you wanted to go in a different direction, the Critical Thinking Company has a workbook called World History Detective. It's pretty comprehensive, and the workbook format might be less overwhelming. Prior to 6th, science for my older was mostly picking a topic (we used Hirsh's Core Knowledge series to get suggestions) and then checking out a bunch of library books to read. That approach did not work for my younger, so last year in desperation I got the Critical Thinking Company Science Detective for her grade level and this year added their book of science experiments. Either would be a good choice, but they are very different. My older has used his studies in preparation for Science Olympiad, so, while it's worked for us, it's definitely not a traditional approach that I'd advise people to try. 🙂 We also use an assortment of puzzle books, analogy books, etc, depending on our schedule. I'm not sure that I addressed everything that you were asking about, but maybe some of this will help.
  21. Thanks to ITT, I am now researching Singapore Math. Why, you ask? Because I want something that works but doesn't feel like such drudgery. I personally like many of CLE's explanations because they make sense to me (I wish I had learned this way in school) and I rarely even need the TM, but it truly is a standoff most days with Oldest. So if I can find something different that he will actually DO and understand, I'll try it.
  22. My older ds finished AoPS PreAlgebra this past school year. He and I worked on it together with the videos (which we loved!) I’ve been considering putting him in an online class to free me up for my younger kids and a new baby coming this fall. I looked into AoPS online classes for Algebra 1, but didn’t care for the setup and thought the pace would be too much for my ds. I’ve since looked into other options and am wondering if anyone here has advice on which direction to take. 1) Dolciani Algebra 1 through Wilson Hill. Is Dolciani a decent choice for Algebra 1? I have heard Foersters get good reviews, as well as Jacobs. Any feedback on WHA Algebra 1? Is the digital writing tablet and the graphing calculator really necessary? 2) WTMA Algebra 1. Haven’t looked into this a lot, but they do offer an AoPS Algebra 1, I believe. 3) Do AoPS Algebra 1 ourselves. With the videos only covering through ch. 13, I believe. This makes me a little hesitant. We enjoyed AoPS a bunch, but it also took a lot of time. 4) Do Foersters or Jacobs Algebra 1 ourselves. Not familiar with these texts, but doubt they’d take as much time as AoPS. Or take the Jacobs course through Veritas Press Academy online school. Thoughts? Also, another thread got me thinking of my ds2. Regentrude mentioned making sure students write out their math work. I’m waffling on whether or not to do PreA with my ds2, and it’s precisely because of this issue. He is very intelligent and does so much math in his head. But he hates to write things down, which of course leads to silly mistakes. (Side note: he’s always struggled with the act of writing, and was “unofficially” diagnosed with dysgraphia by a special ed evaluator.) And when he does write things down, it doesn’t make sense to me. He likes to erase work he wrote, as if it’s clutter he doesn’t need anymore. It also is difficult sometimes in trying to follow his line of thinking- which is usually different, but nonetheless correct and rather creative. He has done Singapore Math Standards Ed. and Beast Academy and done very well in both. I’ve debated entering him in an online class for the same reasons for ds1, but the “won’t write things down” issue is making me think twice. Would an online class help him in this area?
  23. Hits: Dropping Latin once and for all. Singapore Math as always Misses: Rod and Staff English. This appeals to me a lot, so I try it out on at least one kid every year. But I am going to give them away. It is not going to happen. Memoria Press Classical Studies and Christian Studies. Bravewriter. We tried all of it and it was all a miss.
  24. We have just started using CWP 2 with my 7 year old who is halfway through RSM C. I have heard many RSM families say they supplement with this to improve problem solving. Some of the problems seem very difficult for him. The computation part is easy but the set up seems to stump him at times. This is obviously evidence that we do indeed need this supplement but I'm wondering if I've chosen the right level. He's 8 in June, very competent in computation, but not wholly confident. Should we perhaps have started with book 1? We are not in the US so it's not particularly cheap to purchase another book.
  25. THIS ADVERT HAS EXPIRED!
