  1. So in a previous post it was mentioned that children aren't resistant to learning but maybe the schoolwork. With that in mind, my 3rd child is very different than the two boys and I'm looking for curriculum suggestions for her. Definitely has traits of distractibility and slow to start with a lot of complaining. Its hard to say what her learning style is because I feel she hasn't really developed a love of learning from her current private school. She loves art (painting, drawing) and legos. She says she likes science but hates doing the science end of chapter questions she gets sent home. We will be pulling her out in May and hoping to ease in hs with some gap filling of 5th grade and then move into 6th, Suggestions. In the past I've done SOTW, lots of reading literature, FLF, logic, Singapore math, independent project units (for the older boys) but with her she doesn't really have a passion for reading and is indecisive so not sure independent projects will work.
  2. 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?

  5. This is a tough season for us. It will get a lot better once my #3 has her driver's license. Until then, I schlep her to her community college classes 2x a week. The three littles stay home with #2 on those days, and their productivity varies considerably from day to day. We haven't signed up for spring semester yet, so we don't know what our schedule will look like after Christmas break. Our hits so far: -- BJU Math, with a break for my 6th grader to use the Key To workbooks for a while. I switched from Singapore Math when #3 was in about third grade, and we've stuck with it for K-6 for the littles. -- George Washington's World. I bought Notgrass American History over the summer, but didn't have time to plan it out. So as a stopgap, I handed the 5th and 6th graders George Washington's World and they LOVE it. My olders never wanted to read it as a supplement. We'll pick up with Notgrass when they finish GWW. -- Spelling You See. -- FLL. Our old standby. My youngest is almost done with our spiral bound 1+2 and it's bittersweet to watch her finish all these curricula my kids have grown up using. -- Orbiting with Logic for my 5th grader. He loved it. -- Explode the Code. Another one that's going away. ::sniff-sniff:: -- Wordly Wise 3000 and Vocabulary from Classical Roots. The 6th grader seems to enjoy VfCR more than WW3000, so I'm going to have the 5th grader give it a try as well, and then switch him if he likes it. I paused the 2nd grader on WW3000 because I thought some of the exercises were over her head. So rather than skip them, I'm going to make her wait or I'll find an alternative. -- Analytical Grammar for the 6th grader. She's really starting to get the hang of identifying the parts of speech consistently. -- WWE. Another forever favorite. We're adding in the beta test of Write By Number and that's going well (Shameless plug -- I'm doing the page layout for the author, a longtime friend.). Meh: -- Science. It's always the first spinning plate to fall. I had big plans for continuing a small co-op group from last year to do earth and space this year, using R.E.A.L. Science, Ellen McHenry's Rocks and Dirt, and Master Books. But with a big book design project (see above), we're having to be content with just reading the Master Books for now. I'm not all that impressed with them. My 5th grader blows through them, though, so I'm glad he's enjoying them for now. I hope to get to all of our cool experiments in the spring. Misses: -- A teen without a driver's license. -- All the stuff I have that we're not doing. (WTM math facts books, anyone?) -- A Child's Story of America. I've had it lying around forever. The 2nd grader is working slowly through it, but neither of us enjoys it. I think the reading level is over her head. I feel like I've forgotten something... oh well. I always love these winners-and-losers threads. They're so much fun to read.

  9. Has anyone paired these (pdf, reproducible, $10) workbooks with the HIG/textbook for standards or US edition? Is there a good reason why that wouldn't work. Also, I searched and couldn't find discussion of Frank Shaffer's Challenge workbooks in comparison with either FAN Math Process Skills or Singapore's CWP. It's so much cheaper (and did I mention reuseable...) that I'm wondering what about this "too good to be true" is. TIA Sarah
  10. One thing I have cherished in teaching my kids has been the opportunity to learn alongside them. Story of the World taught me more history than I remember from school. Even the early levels of Singapore Math introduced me to math concepts I didn't know. I read Winnie the Pooh and Five Children and It for the first time. I even know what a preposition is! Lol. The flip side to that is the more I learn, the more I realize I don't know. I feel like I may never catch up. But then, is there such a thing as catching up?
  11. 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.)

  15. 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!

    Singapore Math Grade 4 (Level 3) 70 Word Problems - Like New - No writing/highlighting $5 (Also have Grade 3 Level 2 of this book-- Both for $8-see other listing) Paypal plus $2 shipping ISBN 9780768240131 Welcome to Singapore Math––the leading math program in the world! This workbook features math practice and activities for fourth grade students based on the Singapore Math method. An introduction at the front of each book explains Singapore Math and its common problem types. Each unit has learning objectives, which clearly define the skills to be learned in that section, and an answer key with step-by-step worked out solutions that help students see how to work the problems. This book is perfect for students familiar with Singapore Math and for those who just need extra math practice! Many students struggle with word problems because they typically involve two or more mathematical concepts and require reading, comprehension, and analytical skills to determine the solution. To help overcome this struggle, these Singapore Math workbooks focus on diagrams, number bonds, the "counting on" method, and the "crossing out" method to help students master challenging word problems as well as exercise mental calculation. Perfect as a supplement to classroom work or as a homeschool resource, this series will boost confidence in problem-solving and critical-thinking skills.

    Singapore Math Grade 3 (Level 2) 70 Word Problems - Like New - No writing/highlighting $5 (Also have Grade 4 Level 3 of this book-- Both for $8-see other listing) Paypal plus $2 shipping ISBN 9780768240122 Welcome to Singapore Math––the leading math program in the world! This workbook features math practice and activities for third grade students based on the Singapore Math method. An introduction at the front of each book explains Singapore Math and its common problem types. Each unit has learning objectives, which clearly define the skills to be learned in that section, and an answer key with step-by-step worked out solutions that help students see how to work the problems. This book is perfect for students familiar with Singapore Math and for those who just need extra math practice! Many students struggle with word problems because they typically involve two or more mathematical concepts and require reading, comprehension, and analytical skills to determine the solution. To help overcome this struggle, these Singapore Math workbooks focus on diagrams, number bonds, the "counting on" method, and the "crossing out" method to help students master challenging word problems as well as exercise mental calculation. Perfect as a supplement to classroom work or as a homeschool resource, this series will boost confidence in problem-solving and critical-thinking skills.

  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.
  19. 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?
  20. Singapore math also introduces order of operations very early. (But you probably already know that.) I can't remember what book they introduce it in. Maybe level 3 or 4? But then it is reviewed each year and practiced. (They just add decimal or fractions to the problems.) For you 10 year old son, I would NOT move him from Singapore just because he needs more practice. Especially if you are considering a STEM path for him. And especially because it is working well for him. :) And especially because you are almost finished with the primary math sequence...why not stick it through? (In full disclosure, i am a math snob, but I love Singapore math!) I agree with you that math mammoth is also a very strong math program, but sometimes the sheer amount of problems can kill a child's love for math. (Of course, you don't have to assign every problem in math mammoth. But I know from experience that it can sometimes be a lot of work to sort through and pick out your child's assignment each day. And I feel like the answer key in math mammoth makes grading more difficult than singapore.) So, let me ask you some questions (about the 10 year old specifically): Is he currently doing all of the textbook and workbook problems? (All of the reviews, practices, mental math for HIG, etc.) (If not, start doing both of those. That is the bare minimum.) Is he currently fixing his math each day and correcting missed problems until 100%? (That is an easy way to provide more practice, and from my experience a very useful tool in teaching math.) If he is currently doing both the textbook and workbook problems (and fixing his math each day), then it might be time to add in one of the extra Singapore books. The reason they have so many books is so you can completely customize the amount and type of practice your son needs and come up with a perfect math solution. Here are just a few of the most common "extra" books people order: Extra Practice books. These are going to be more problems just like the workbook. These are for kids who just need more practice of the same. Intensive practice / challenging word problems: These are for kids who don't find the regular workbook problems challenging enough. Process Skills: Does he need help with word problems or bar diagrams? Mental math books: self-explanatory Tests book: I know a lot of people who use the tests book for extra practice too. I feel like they are a bit easier than the regular workbook because many of the problems are multiple choice. But they are great, quick reviews. My kids also need a little bit of extra review and practice. I try my best to constantly keep sniffing out weak areas in their understanding. I use the cumulative textbook and workbook reviews (at the end of each unit in the standards version of Singapore) to snuff out any weak areas of understanding. If I notice that they are missing a lot of the same types of problems (or have forgotten how to do it and have to ask for a review)---then I re-teach the concept and start assigning 1-2 of those types of problems per day to practice. Another easy way to add in extra practice is Prodigy math. I don't know how you feel about screens, but it is a fun, online math video game that is actually pretty useful in reviewing math concepts. (It is NOT a good primary teaching tool.) It is free too. You can assign topics for targeted review (ex. order of operations, finding the area of different shapes, dividing fractions, etc.) or you can just have them work on grade specific spiral review.
  21. Okay, so your students have the ability to generalize and do understand symbols. They did not understand the task you asked of them. Normally that means they are placed inappropriately in the curriculum or the directions weren't complete. After that, there are insufficient details. What strategies did they use? Count up, count on? Where are they in the continuum of knowing? Anywho,, I"m going to bow out; this is clearly a rant as its not how arithmetic is taught here...you might find the website engageny.org to be of interest as well as the strand info at https://www.k-5mathteachingresources.com/. After that my dc's teachers have some pretty cool material from their gifted classes over at UConn, that's where the Renzulli Center for Gifted/Creative/etc is. The resource of choice these days is Math in Focus, which is Singapore Math...and that's for everyone.
  22. Loving this thread! I'm more with you square_25 I adore teaching elementary math and conceptual/hands on is where it's at, in my very amateur opinion. I'm not a teacher or mathematician, I didn't do any formal maths after grade 12. I did quite well in school but maths was very procedural and a couple of truly abysmal teachers meant I tapped out and instead focused on humanities. I love maths though, and I love it more having now had the chance to get down into the sandbox with my kids and get my hands dirty making it conceptual. I can't say with authority whether it works best though, I've only got one kid through aops pre-alg so far! One thing that inspired me (other than miquon, Singapore maths and aops) is math circles and specifically this book https://www.amazon.com/Math-Three-Seven-Mathematical-Preschoolers/dp/082186873X
  23. 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!
  24. 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
