  1. She drew some bars like she learned in Singapore Math. First, one bar (unit) for Paul and 5 bars for Dad. Then she drew Paul one bar and dad 4 bars. She added + 3 years then she got stuck. Honestly, I don't know how to solve it without a traditional algebra equation but there must be a simpler way.
  2. One of my kids was happy if kid could occupy my time all day and didn't much care how that happened - arguing over every math problem would suffice. I ended up making some unexpected choices to avoid the sorts of fights you're describing. Have you checked the Critical Thinking Company? I know that we used some 3-4th grade materials so I don't know how young they go. i've been happy with everything that we've used - Science Detective, Reading Detective, Inference Jones, Language Mechanic, Editor in Chief, Balance Benders. Would she be able to read a chapter of Story of the World each day on
  3. Some kids need more practice than what is in Singapore Math, too. It’s so individual how much practice kids need.
  4. Hmm, it seems the cluttered pages are something to keep in mind. I do like that everyone on this thread seems to agree that MM has a lot of practice. Do you feel that not having a teacher's guide is a significant drawback, or does the worktext suffice? Yes, that's a part of the problem for me. I have multiple kids (other than the ones I'm referring to here) and I want to avoid becoming overwhelmed by a gajillion homeschooling materials. I'd like to keep it as simple as possible without sacrificing quality of content. So if that means sticking to Singapore Math, so be it. I'm glad t
  5. I'm looking for a complete math curriculum for my 2nd and 5th grader. I thought I was set on Singapore Math, but after some more research I'm going to add MM to the running. I'm looking for something which offers a lot of practice work, helps them strengthen their mental math skills, and helps builds a great foundation for middle and high school math. Would you say one of these fit the bill better than the other?
  6. Daughter has always used SM. However, she was in a charter school that used Math In Focus. I do not think it worked well for her. Then she moved on to home schooling and we used Singapore Math US edition. I had some Beast Academy on the shelf. She finished SM 2B. Then started BA 2A. So far, she says it is "hard but fine." Meanwhile, older brother, who had done Singapore Math from the beginning through 5A, lost a lot of skills over the summer. One factor is, this was a weird year. We stopped late April and did not start again until about a month ago. We did ITBS this year and all school seemed
  7. Oh wow, thank you so much everyone! I didn't expect such thorough and extensive feedback. After taking everything mentioned here in to account, we've decided BA probably won't be the right fit for us. We're going to go with Singapore Math, hopefully it works for us. Thanks again 🙂
  8. so, testing mine out again....when I stand workbooks, etc. upright (instead of on their spines, though they do fit that way), I can still grasp both handles in one hand and carry it that way. I have right now in the one I just tested: 5 Singapore Math workbooks, all upright 4 Usborne books (narrow ones, like the Science Activities Vol....), also upright Akebu to Zapotec (thin book) Story of the Orchestra hardback book, that one is on its spine vs upright a spray bottle of alcohol/cleaner (which is why I put the workbooks upright, to make room for the spray bottle) So....it is he
  9. I'll join @Janeway in praising Singapore Math. We used the US edition, and this was before any BA books had been published. I combined SM with a weekly MOEMS lesson for problem solving practice, and after Level 5, we transitioned seamlessly to AoPS PreAlgebra. Knowing what I know now and having used BA with several other students I would probably do it again.
  10. My daughter hated BA until she was ahead of the concepts. So basically, the practices are puzzles. Puzzles for practicing concepts is easier if you already get the concepts when applied in a normal way. I love Singapore Math and I do not use the teachers manual. I use the real Singapore Math and not one of the rewritten by American Publishers Standards or Math In Focus. We are doing BA now, but BA 2A along side SM 3A.
  11. There's also the issue, IMO, that the teacher helps are very different for Singapore Math vs Beast Academy. How confident do you feel about teaching math? I think a lot of parents (even mathy ones) don't have a lot of the bigger picture of what is being done and why. I'm adding this because curricula has to fit the kid and the teacher; I loved the idea of Singapore but just could NOT click with the teacher manual. Emily
  12. I'm trying to decide between Singapore Math (Primary Edition) and Beast Academy for my 2nd and 5th grader. My biggest concern with BA is the amount of practice it entails. Is it enough? Do kids retain it well? Can it serve as a full curriculum without additional supplementary material?
  13. My grandons went to a private school for first grade and they used Abeka math. I purchased the second grade (2A) Singapore math standards edition and we aren't very far into it and he is really struggling with the skip counting. I have Developing Number Concepts to help with place value but when I ask him to do the activities he gets upset because he feels it's beneath him because he "already know how to count". Is there a curriculum or a supplement that could help him with this? I like to hear what's worked for others as there are many options in how to handle this. Thanks!
  14. Well, if I'd known my older son had extreme but extremely spotty expressive language issues, that would've changed nearly everything I did with him for language arts in elementary and middle school (except grammar), assuming he responded to therapy then as well as he did when he finally got it. So, that redo would include Story Grammar materials from Mindwing Concepts, including the autism series of books. They are stellar. He glitched on narrative language and on hooking up his abstract reasoning skills with language-based critical thinking. He's still catching up as a junior in high school,
  15. Singapore Math starting in first grade, all the way to sixth. (Did not love the kinder books) Abeka Phonics through 3rd, Abeka Spelling all the way through. Language Smarts all the books. WWE 1 and 2. Science - maybe Junior Galore Park? History - maybe Christian Liberty or BJU in the very earliest elementary grades. Story of the World once ready.
  16. I would do Singapore Math and my own history and science all over again. I wish I stuck with Meet the Masters. My kids enjoyed that and retained, surprisingly, a lot from it. If I had it to do over, I would keep both peeps home until 8th grade and do a grammar intensive in 6th/7th rather than try to spread it out through elementary. My peeps retained very little of their grammar instruction.
  17. Hoo boy that's a question 😄 I guess it started when my oldest was about 7 and working through singapore math grade 2. She started crying and resisting, which was unusual for her. I had to realise that the book was a tool for us, not a master. I let her take the chapter review as a test (she aced it) and we moved on. She was literally bored to tears with subtraction and regrouping. She still tends to prefer the challenging maths, even though she gets moody and frustrated (teen). We have meandered a lot on maths, I don't know that we have ever finished a book in a year. We jump around,
  18. A problem 405 minus 260..... daughter comes up with an answer that ends with a zero. I tell her "let's work it out on the board together." I write it on the board. We start with 5 minus zero...she says zero. I remind her..that is minus, as in "take away." She looks at me and meekly says zero? I pull out counting bears and set 5 on the table and tell her to take away zero from the group. Then I tell her to count how many are left. Eventually, she slowly counts each bear and says "five?" As if that is not bad enough, son finished Singapore Math 5A in the spring. I pulled up a final test for
  19. I didn't know what to say. Many of the families who are crisis schooling cannot spend more than that. They weren't planning for it. They aren't philosophical homeschoolers who are building a library or store of science equipment. And they don't really have time to do lots of things with kids if they both work. They just need the basics until kids can go back to school. I set one family up (mom was reluctant to choose for herself because it was overwhelming, so I hope I guided her toward options that work well for her) with Singapore math for two kids, Story of the World: Middle Ages, and one
  20. Before you start, assess gaps in reading and math. I'm working on turning this into a LinkedIn Article. Homeschooled one all the way through high school, off to college soon; another 3 years younger also homeschooled since beginning. (Joint public school classes last 1 1/2 years for oldest; youngest was supposed to start some high school classes this year, if virtual school he'll be homeschooled full time this semester; this state allows dual homeschool and public school for 1 - 6 classes in high school.) I’ve been a volunteer literacy tutor for 26 years and have used a variety of a
  21. I just graduated myself from 19 years of homeschooling. My SN youngest graduated HS this year and he homeschooled K-12. Dd graduated from college this year and she homeschooled K-8 1/2. I homeschooled with a completely unreasonable toddler/preschooler in the house, but he was kind enough to nap til he was 6. I tell new homeschoolers they can make decisions one subject at a time. It doesn’t occur to most of them that they can choose their math curriculum, order it, start it, do it for a while and then decide about the next subject. They assume there’s a magic day when you have to start ev
  22. I just did this today. I have only one homeschooled-from-the-start child who is entering her 12th grade year. We are not and never have been, part of any sort of homeschool group, co-op , or community, other than these forums. I have always worked part time and moved to full time (half working from home) when my child started 10th grade. Advice was going to another family with an only child who will be in 6th grade. They are 100% new to the whole idea but willing to put thought and effort into it. Both parents work full time, and one is an essential worker who must work onsite. They hav
  23. Mmm. Would I ever go to a public forum to ask a basic question that could be easily learned by googling? No. I wouldn't come to here or facebook and ask how to withdraw my kid from school. This is different from if I were involved in a conversation with a friend and tossed a question in that was relevant to the conversation instead of pulling out my phone. Sometimes I will ask a question that has been asked a zillion times, (and I will search it first and read the threads, but still ask) because I feel like I need personal feedback on my situation. I did personally start a thread asking w
  24. I'll be homeschooling for the first time this fall and am getting hung up on what Math curriculum to use. My son going into second grade did fine with Everyday Math in first grade, my son going into 5th grade struggled with 4th grade math, they used Zearn last year. I'm planning to homeschool my older son from now through the middle school years for sure. He has struggled quite a bit with school in general and has focus issues. We may send our younger son back to public school to finish out elementary. I like the looks of Math U See but am concerned it would be difficult for my younger so
  25. I was going to suggest Beast Academy but you've btdt, lol! My DS says he hates math (even though he is good at it). Like Little Green Leaves wrote, I think he looks at it as a chore. He is rising 11th and we are finishing Geometry and will be starting Algebra II. He has REALLY disliked geometry mostly because I think he is confused by the diagrams. With Algebra it was word problems that took the longest; he just could not wrap his head around what was being asked and it was frustrating for him. He was relieved by factoring or anything he saw as "more straightforward," more literal. We used Sin
