  1. So, this is what I was wondering, too. The homeschool market has drastically changed in the last ten years and I'm wondering if the big price increases are because of it. I know stuff like the Singapore math workbooks, etc, haven't really changed in price, but I was looking at specifically MUS, SL, MFW, Oak Meadow...and some of those doubled or tripled in price. Also, there have been so many weird changes out there in the past year in the homeschooling world. Currclick is closing...the Homeschool Reviews Forum closed...Landry Academy....Sonlight closed its forums...there was another online curriculum provider that closed recently, but I can't remember it's name.
  2. My 2nd grade teacher encouraged finger counting as how we should do arithmetic...and I counted on my fingers until at least high school. Although I wouldn't have liked it at the time, I wish we'd been encouraged to do it differently because I wasn't as quick with adding and subtracting as I was with multiplication and division (which we were forced to learn for timed tests in 4th grade). My kids used singapore math and they learned to 'see' everything as groups of tens. So, they never counted from 8 to 14 to see that 14-8 is 6 - they would know that you needed 2 to get to 10 and then 4 more was 6. I had expected that a tens-based method would have more finger use, but because the kids only had to learn a tiny number of facts, they remembered them and never used fingers. I do use fingers with the kids that I help in my volunteer gig, but they seem to cling to counting without ever developing any number sense.
  3. Hello all, This is my first post here, so hopefully I won't unwittingly break any etiquette rules! I searched back several pages and tried using the search function, but didn't come up with much. Is anyone familiar with the differences between the homeschool guide and teachers guide? Is the teachers guide more robust or something? Any recommendations? Background: This is our first year homeschooling, we'll be teaching our twin sons who both do well with math and should probably be doing more difficult work than what school assigned last year. They would be starting 2nd grade this year. The school uses Envisions Math from Pearson, which is supposed to be aligned with common core standards. We plan on using using the US Editions of Singapore math, deciding on the levels after we have the boys try the diagnostic tests on their websites. Any advice is much appreciated!
  4. I know this belongs on the Logic Stage board, but I posted there a few days ago and no one has answered. So I was hoping people who have BTDT could help. We are at the end of Singapore Math. We are part way through 6B. There are tons of reviews in the textbook. It seems as if the textbook is at least half review. We have skipped over reviews a lot in the last few books because son just seemed to really get things. Plus, we had done extra books like Keys to Fractions. Now we are in the last book of the series. We plan to do Jacob's Algebra next, which I already own. Do you think it would be a mistake to continue to skip over the reviews? We will still complete the workbook at 100%. I seem to recall some people saying they skipped the entire 6B level and went on to algebra. Has anyone had issues in algebra if they skipped the textbook reviews?
  5. Background: DD10 will not let me teach her math and she is reluctant to use the Singapore textbook. Still, it seems to be working for her. I've given her math assessments to be sure she's okay. For the last two years, I've looked at other programs since I always worry about the self-teaching of a program that's not considered self-teaching, and I keep obsessing about what to do. I just had a thought about what might work to help her to possibly use Singapore better. It might not be the best idea given my organizational skills, but here goes: I buy a cheap used copy of the PM 5A textbook and cut the binding off. I do the same with the workbook and Intensive Practice book I just bought. Then I make a packet for each lesson/topic with textbook pages first, workbook pages next, and then the Intensive Practice pages. I could staple them or bind them together in some way for her to work through sequentially. I wouldn't mind ideas about how to do that. This might not really solve the problem, but do you think it's worth trying?
  6. How come US edition doesn't have the test books? Will standard edition be as good as US edition if I skip the test book? I just don't think we can finish the text A and B books in a year along with the workbook and test book.
  7. Struggling with how to tackle computation skills with ds who is about to turn 13. He is technically in 7th grade, and he is strong in math, but not advanced. We used Singapore Math K-5, then in 6th grade he did Singapore 6 and some LOF. While he understood the concepts in LOF, I felt like he wasn't getting enough computation practice, so we switched to Khan Math at the start of this year, in part because I feel strongly that his computation skills need to be sharper before he starts algebra. He claims to like it, but in my opinion he is relying too much on the multiple choice options (sometimes using them to avoid actually doing the math), and he still isn't really getting the solid computation practice I am looking for. I am considering switching to AOPS Prealgebra, but I'm not completely sure on that. I have an older ds who used AOPS for all of his advanced math following Algebra I/II and Geometry, and he loved it, but I also have a dd who tried the AOPS Geometry and Counting & Probability and hated both (even though she is a very capable math student). If I can get ds to tackle the program diligently, will it give him the pencil-and-paper practice I am looking for? He tends to get very frustrated with what he perceives as busy work once he has mastered a topic, so I am hesitant to pull Saxon off the shelf. I really feel like with kid #4 this should not be such a struggle! ? Thank you!
  8. Dimension Math is very new, so you won't get a lot of answers. If I was beginning again, I think I would consider it, though. It addresses some of the "cons" of Singapore Math (better teaching resources and a complete 6th grade level). Unlike Math in Focus though, I think the levels are pretty much interchangeable between the regular Singapore books and the Dimensions, so if you don't like it, I think you'd be okay to switch. Probably for the youngest level, you won't need the TE, but I do think a lot of the teaching is in the TE for Dimensions because it is set up for a classroom. There are resources here if you haven't seen them:
  9. Hi, Everyone, First, can I vent a little bit about math this year? (If you came to share your beast academy routine only, Feel free to skip my vent and go below the line. ;) ) I have used Singapore math from Earlybird to level 4B (standards edition), and I have loved it. My original plan was to finish off 5A/5B and then start AOPS pre-algebra next year. However, I feel like level 5A is just...different somehow....And not different in a good way. I've had a couple of minor hiccups this year in math---and I can't decide if I should stick things out. (Maybe things get better?) Or if perhaps this is a sign I should make the switch to AOPS earlier? Hiccups in Math this year: 1) The divisibility rules: The divisibility rules for the numbers 1-10 are covered briefly in an introduction in the HIG. Not in a one of the chapter "introductions" written to the teacher. The HIG makes no indication that you are supposed to teach these to your children in any of the lessons. It even has a note in the introduction that says something along the lines, "in case your children are interested, here are the divisibility rules." Now, these rules are not impossible to learn, but it does take some work to learn them. However, with no indication that I should begin teaching them to my children at this time and with no time given to learn them, the child is just supposed to start applying them in order to solve some problems. For example, in one problem, the child must know that 4 is a factor of 92 in order to solve one of the problems. Do most kids just know this without having to divide 4 out? I don't. There also seem to be quite a few problems where you need to know that 3 is a factor in order to solve them. Again, the divisibility rule for 3 is not that hard, but a little indication that we should know these would be nice. "OK," I thought. "No big deal. They probably should have these rules memorized anyways. (I've been meaning to get to that!) I will just start reviewing them each day before class until they have them down." So I did, and happily moved on. (That was my first minor annoyance.) 2) The distributive property: The VERY next unit, they introduce the distributive property for the VERY first time. And...within that first lesson, the child is supposed to start applying the distributive property in their head with mental math. (Without writing down any work.) There is even a note that said something along the lines, "the child should feel that the distributive propery is intuative and therefore should not be required to write down any steps.) I felt like this was poor instruction and most children probably require more scaffolding. (For example, before I started teaching my child strategies to multiply large digits mentally, I made sure they understood WHY the strategies worked. And before that, I made sure they understood how to multiply numbers on paper really, really well.) But within one single lesson, they are taught the distributive properly and expected to apply all of the steps. Again, I can hang out on this unit and do what needs to be done before we move on. But, I am annoyed that I have to modify the program again. 3) Appendix Supplements? Related to point 2, another thing I have noticed is all of these extra appendix supplemental worksheets. The authors of the HIG obviously foresaw that the way concepts were presented might cause a problem for some children. So they have started including all of these extra "appendix" pages for additional instruction and practice in some of these strategies. (sort of like workbook supplements.) Personally, I really hate the appendix pages. I'm used to the scheduled mental math, and I have found ways around using those. But I wasn't prepared to make my own worksheets for these other appendix topics. Maybe I am getting lazy in my homeschool careers...but really, I feel like Singapore could step up their game in this department. Can't they provide a pdf? Or even an extra book I could purchase for these appendix problems? I am teaching to two children, so they cant exactly share my appendix in my HIG. (and I hope to reuse these HIGs with future children.) And I don't have any easy way to photocopy all of these appendix pages. All of these things are minor hiccups. I know with some extra instruction and practice, we can find a way around these things. If a few of you tell me that things get better, I am more than willing to stick it out and do what needs to be done. BUT--if the whole year is filled with "minor inconviances", math becomes a know? (On a side note: I remember being sort of annoyed with how long division was originally taught in Singapore math. I remember a few of you encouraged me that you felt the same way, and I should just stick it out and things would get better. WELL, I stuck it out and things DID get better. And I am glad I did because Singapore has been one of my favorite resources.) So I am wondering, does Singapore 5A/5B get better? Am I just off to a rocky start in math this year? Perhaps my kids are just rusty or needing extra practice as math gets more difficult? In another thread, someone asked if my daughter could be making mistakes in math because she was bored. I dismissed that idea, but started thinking about how she is the type who loves a challenge in math. She likes to puzzle through a problem. So maybe there is something to that? I don't know. Anyways, this leads me to looking longingly at Beast Academy.... In fact, for math today, I may have given my children one of the placement tests. ---------------------------------------------- (The line you can skip too if you don't want to hear me vent about math. Trust me...I get it and am not offended! hahaha ) Beast Academy Questions: What is your daily routine for beast academy? Specifically, do you read the guide WITH/TO your child? I feel like I would need to in order to help them, right? (And, this might be a dumb question, but how exactly do you read a graphic novel aloud?) Hypothetically, How would you approach BA if you were teaching two children at once working at about the same level? How do you assign problems? And do you work side-by-side with your child, or assign and check? Do you assign an entire practice page per day or use a time limit? (If you use a time limit, how do you encourage them not to waste their time? For example, if you had a child who was easily distracted?) Also, looking at the samples, I am thinking it might be good to start the day with some type of review? Maybe an evan moore daily math page so skills do not get rusty? I worry that there aren't very many scheduled reviews in BA. What grade level of Evan Moore would correspond to the later 4th grade BA books or the early 5th grade books?

  12. We've been doing Singapore math since K. I really like it. I did terribly in math when I was a kid, and never really understood how things worked or why. Singapore has helped me to think mathematically. B is going into 4th grade. She has always been slow at math. It takes a while for her to grasp new concepts. It takes foreverrrrrrrr for her to do mental math and her workbook pages. We are way back at the beginning of 3b because math takes her so long. If she has a bad day and only gets 5 questions done, we can't double up the next day because she's not capable of doing that many questions. This is giving me flashbacks to my 4th grade year, when I was the slowest in the whole class at multiplication facts. Most often, she knows how to do the work, but the gears in her brain turn so slowly. I'm posting her standardized test scores, but will take them down eventually. Would you all recommend switching, and what might be a good fit? (I am unwilling to teach Saxon after my experience with it as a child.) Thank you in advance!

    Math in Focus Grade 5 Answer Key- This contains smaller reproductions of the student books with answers. It has answers for the textbook and the workbook. I used this in place of the teacher guides to save money. $10ppd. Singapore Math 5A (US Edition)- $7 ppd for both books. Textbook Home Instructor Guide- The guide had some essential oil spilled on it. It smells kind of minty like wintergreen. It didn't affect the readability. The binding is a little loose and has a few erased pencil marks and a small stain on a couple pages. I can send more pictures upon request.


  14. If your child is doing (or recently has done) 3rd grade math, what topics/procedures of multiplying and dividing is he or she doing for this grade? Background: My DD #1 is now in 3rd grade. Up until this year we were working with Singapore Math Standards and MEP. This year I changed over to Beast Academy (3A-D) and Math Mammoth (Grade 3) at her request. I happen to have Singapore Math Grade 3 from working with her older brother and was looking it over recently. To my surprise (because I didn't remember) the division and multiplication is more advanced than what is presented in Beast and Math Mammoth. This year, she has been doing basic multiplication tables through 12, multiplication and division fact families through 12, multiplying and dividing word problems and some basic dividing with remainders ( two digit dividends like 56 divided by 6). She also has been multilpying and dividing numbers by 10's (45 x 10, 568 x 100, etc). The Singapore 3rd grade program has three digit numbers multiplied by one digit numbers (with "carrying") and long division with three digit dividends. It looks more advanced than what she has been doing this year. So, now I am wondering if I should use the Singapore Math grade 3 materials as a supplement for multiplying and dividing? Or, is Singapore Math for 3rd grade pretty far advanced as far as multiplying and dividing goes? I know it's ahead generally but maybe its REALLY advanced as far as multiplying and dividing? She will be tested in about three months (for my state) but I cannot see the test until about 4 weeks before I use it so I don't know for sure what will be on it.
  15. My older children used MUS or CLE for early elementary math. I am looking at other options for my younger two though. I am really drawn to Singapore Math because I like the samples, and the colorful textbook. Is Singapore difficult to teach everyday? I am also considering Math Mammoth or CLE. Of these three, which one would you choose, and why?

    Hi there, I am looking to purchase Singapore math 4A and 4B, Standard Edition. I need the textbooks, workbooks, home instructors manual, and test books. Let me know if you have any of these items that you would like to sell!


  17. Just to clarify, both the US edition and the standards edition use US money. :) Both also teach both the metric and imperial units when measuring. To the OP: Both editions of Singapore math are wonderful, and there isn't *that* much of a difference IMHO. :) I've used both, and have personally preferred the standards edition. Here are some handy hints to help make your decision: 1) Check out samples of the HIG for both editions for a couple of the grades. This will probably be one of the biggest differences. Example: US HIG for 4A vs Standards HIG for 4A 2) Check out the scope and sequence chart- Pay attention to WHEN concepts are introduced for each version. As you can see, a few things are introduced earlier in the standards "S" version compared to the "U" version. But, you can also see that both paths pretty much get you to the same place. The only exception is toward the bottom of this chart. Quite a few concepts are only taught in the "S" version. I think you will tend to see this difference towards the later elementary grades. 3) Will you supplement quite a bit with other Singapore books? Both the extra practice (for kids struggling needing more practice) and the intensive practice (for advanced kids who need harder problems) are tied to the US version. Of course, I have always used the standard version and paired it with the US extra practice books and things have been FINE. :) It just means I need to buy the books from a different section on the Rainbow Resource page. 5) How much built-in review? The standard version contains a lot more cumulative review than the US version. It has a cumulative review for each unit. I found I had to add this myself when using the US version. --- To answer your other question, MOST kids will do just fine with the HIG + Textbook + Workbook combination. All the other books can be added to personalize your program. But I would try the regular combination first. You might need to add the extra practice books in if your kid needs more practice with a concept. (Or, I tend to use the math mammoth topical workbooks for extra practice. They are cheaper. And I can download what I need immediatly and only IF I happen to need it. There is nothing worse than paying for a workbook that sits unused on your shelf! ) You might want to add in the challenging word problems or FAN books if you want more word problems. (But the regular textbook and workbook contain plenty of wonderful word problems.) You might want to administer tests. (OR, you could use the cumulative reviews as "tests") You might need to buy a mental math book if your child isn't getting the mental math concepts. BUT--I would say that you won't know any of these things until you try the HIG + Textbook + Workbook combination first. I use "just" the regular combination, and my kids have always tested very well in math. I am not saying that as a brag. My kids are NOT gifted mathematically; I would describe them as regular kids. (In fact, they even have quite a few LDs.) It is just that so many concepts are introduced earlier in Singapore math compared to the standard US math track. So kids tend to test very well compared to other US students. Plus, the word problems in singapore (even in their "regular" textbook/workbook) are more challenging than most math programs. So they tend to think the word problems on standardized tests are ridiculously easy. Here is a standard day in our house: 1) Teach the lesson to the child using the HIG as a guide. (It is very scripted and even shows pictures of what you are supposed to do with the manipulatives as you teach the lesson.) 2) Work some problems together from the textbook. We might do all of the problems or just some if I feel like they are getting the concept. We tend to do these on the white board. 3) Send the child off to complete the workbook. At the end of the day the child checks and corrects their work until they have 100% correct. (We also had to supplement math fact drill in the early ages. And a few concepts required more practice than this. For example, long division tends to be a tricky topic for most kids.)

  19. I am transitioning my oldest over to homeschool this year (2nd grade) after completing kindergarten & 1st grade at our local private christian school. I know I want use Singapore Math but I was wondering about which edition would be best to get. I see a US Ed, Standards Ed (CA Standards) or Common Core Ed. Thanks, Sarah

  21. The last couple books, and only then, we skipped the reviews in the textbook. We did everything else in the textbook and did 100% of the workbook. Half of 6B is review. Since it is the last book, I find myself feeling a little like we should do all the textbook reviews. (we do the workbook reviews, everything in the workbook, regardless). My qualifier in the past is that he has to do the textbook reviews if he seems to struggle at all with the workbook. Well, he is not really struggling with the workbook, but things are not going as quickly as before. He hates fractions. And 6B seems to get heavier in to several step word problems where the student is supposed to solve with rod diagrams instead of X's and Y's. We plan Jacob's Algebra for algebra. I already have the book and the TM.
  22. I have a third grader who really doesn't like math, to the point of nearly crying everyday. She used Singapore Math US Edition last year and is using it again this year. She practically cried daily last year, but I wanted to stick with SM because it's such a solid program and she does surprisingly well in math. I have two fourth graders who are doing well with SM and I wanted to keep everyone in the same program. Anyway, I again am struggling with her and we are in our fourth week of school. I am crazy tempted to switch programs, but I really like SM. Both my husband and I did well in math and value it - we want all our kids to do well in math. Our fourth graders are doing well and even my 3 year old has shown some nice math skills. My third grader IS math-minded - she can compute math problems mentally and learned the multiplication table at just seven years old. She works on standard multi-digit addition and subtraction numbers very easily. She conceptually understands math. She just has no interest in it, like none. She loves to draw and spends about 2 hours a day (at least) drawing. She fills up notebook after notebook with all her drawings. If we decide to change programs, which math program is really solid? I don't want to give her "easy" math because she doesn't enjoy it, she's capable of challenging herself, but I don't know what to do.
  23. Is there something out there that is similar to Singapore math, but less pricey? Singapore is technically a type of math right? Any other curriculums out there that use the Singapore methods? I really want to try it, especially with dd6, but I cant seem to order it. I just keep thinking about spending $18 for a guide and $13 a piece for a textbook and workbook twice a year. I understand this is could equal the price of a full math curriculum per year, but I have older children who have used Abeka, Saxon etc. so I already have that curriculum on hand and would just have to buy a workbook. Can anyone recommend something similar or help me to finally order Singapore.
  24. With three months left, it doesn't matter whether you stay or go. If you go, there will be decompressing and you have about 10 weeks of academics to come up with and social ops to provide. If you stay, you can use those 10 weeks to determine what was done academically and what you want to do about it his placement for next year. Me, I looked at the standards based report card and realized the school had zero intention of teaching anyone anything above 'just passing'. So, the condition of staying in school was that the kiddo had to work with me to stay on grade level or higher, at the proficient level. He used his time wisely in fifth to read, and that left math and composition for me during the school year, then remediation of penmanship and spelling over the summer. All of the rest he had learned from scouting -- field trips to historical places, the TV studio etc. As a teacher, you know how to read grade level standards...and you know how to evaluate. Have him write an essay, check his independent reading level, and use something like a Singapore Math placement test to figure his math out. Did he grow academically?
