  1. Didn't I read here that Singapore Math is going to do away with the 3 or 4 or however many different editions there are currently and write a single for US market version?
  2. Is there a way to give a student who is weak in math the benefit of the Singapore math approach? Looking over samples, I really appreciate much that is practical and visual about this approach. I also greatly appreciate the approach to thinking skills. I understand that some of the materials move more at the pace of a student who is natural and quick at math. I understand that for some materials, it might be necessary to use supplemental books to give more practice. Cost is an important factor to me, and using multiple books is more expensive. So what I am asking: I have a beginning fifth grader who has been using a traditional program with a spiral approach. We are building on a foundation that is not sturdy, so to speak, and I realize that we need to go back and remediate. She needs to learn her multiplication tables. She also does poorly on math assignments. I believe that, were we to switch to a Singapore program, we could likely be set back as far as second grade. I gave a pretest for Math in Focus 3A, and she said it was too hard and wished to do the next test down. However, it looks from a sample I have seen that Math in Focus does a good job of laying out a concept in a visual way, not merely a verbal explanation or numerical formula. I believe this could be helpful. Yet going back into second grade would mean that the bit of ground we have been able to gain in multiplication, division, and working with fractions, might not be reviewed for a while, as we are instead working to build up basic problem solving skills. (I am not sure what the scope and sequence is, but it is probably quite different.) My idea was to use something like Math Mammoth (for which she places at Third Grade), and then use Math in Focus textbooks maybe starting at 2B as enrichment, to give a more visual aspect to the program and to help me learn something about how the Singapore Approach works, since I obviously was not trained this way. I do not feel I am "natural" at teaching math, such as improvising beyond what is in the curriculum I have. Sadly, but it is not my strong point. Does this sound workable to you, or is there a better way? I do feel a need to curtail costs, and I realize there may be some excellent math programs that are on the high end of the cost spectrum, but I really would not choose one of those. That may help as you give me your suggestions. Thank you!
  3. Hello, everyone. Here's just a little backstory to my question: I have two school-aged children plus a preschooler (3 yrs old) and an almost 2 year old. I am due with our fifth in about a month. I have been using RightStart Math with my daughter (levels A-D), until I finally switched to Saxon at the end of this school year. I started my son with RightStart A in kindergarten this year. I felt like RightStart was a great choice for my daughter since she has ADHD and really needed a hands-on, out of the box approach. She learned the concepts really well and her mental math was impressive to me. I finally stopped using it when her conceptual understanding became significantly better than her ability to "just do the math" so to speak. In other words, she could grasp concepts that were at a very high level, but any number of simple subtraction facts would stall her for hours. She could multiply by "figuring it out" but not by remembering any facts of any kind, so it would take a VERY long time. What finally did me in, though, was the intensity of teaching RightStart. I just don't have it in me! Not with the little ones all around demanding my attention, etc. Once we switched to Saxon, her ability to use her concepts to actually do the drills went up exponentially. She's filling in the gaps and doing really well in math overall. So that is the long version of my experience teaching math thus far. So my question is for my son. We are finishing up his kindergarten year, and I have not felt like RightStart was as good a fit for him. I already kind of hate teaching it (such strong words!), but it seems, if anything, too out of the box for him. He's a traditional sort of fellow and all the manipulatives and tally marks, etc. seem to round about for him. He just wants to get to the adding, subtracting, and using actual numbers already. He also enjoys sitting down and using workbooks (which my daughter couldn't do at his age). All that to say, I've looked at Abeka and Horizons which seem similar in their approach (is that right??), and I've looked at Singapore. Singapore seems to enjoy a great reputation that I'm not sure the others share, and all three seem to be a sit-down workbook type of program. Can anyone tell me anything more in detail about working with these programs? Singapore is pretty darn confusing with their myriad of textbook options. I feel like I should go with them since I keep hearing about it being better, but I'm not sure if it really is and if it is also a more "out of the box" kind of curriculum or not. My two goals are to find something that is really easy to use and something that doesn't re-invent the wheel but gives a rock solid math foundation. Since I'm just spinning in circles at this point, I would love it if someone could give me some advice from their own experience! Thank you so much!!!
  4. We will be doing pre K, K and 2nd grade math. Do I need the teacher's Manuals? Do I even need the textbook or can I get away with just the workbooks?
  5. I have read quite a few discussions about Singapore Math on this forum. Many have acronyms like MIF, CWP, HIG, etc. I have compiled an outline here. Hope it helps. The Singapore Math curriculum was conceptualized by the Ministry of Education in Singapore. It became popular worldwide due to its consistent top ranking on Trends in International Math and Science Study (TIMSS). The early adopters are home school students. Currently Singapore Math is used in 100 over US school districts. The math learning process comprises three steps which are: concrete, pictorial, and abstract. The concrete step refers to students learning through manipulation of objects like pens, erasers or clips. In the next step, pictorial representations like bar models are used to represent the problem. The syllabus is about 1 year ahead of syllabus in other countries. For example primary 3 may be equivalent to elementary 4 in other countries. The most challenging word problems are those related to pre-algebra. Textbook titles with US Edition are listed here below. The titles not only have textbooks but they also have workbooks, home instructor guides and teacher’s guides. Dimension Math by Singapore Math Inc Math in Focus by Marshall Cavendish, reseller Houghton Mifflin Harcourt Challenging Word Problems by Marshall Cavendish Primary Math Marshall Cavendish In addition to workbooks, students/instructors can tap on worksheet question banks in free test papers -> Sg Math, for challenging word problems. Grades 4 to 6 are extremely challenging. About Marshall Cavendish is a Singapore-based textbook publisher whose publication are used in Singapore schools. Singapore Math Inc is an US publisher that adapted the curriculum to the American education market
  6. Where does SM teach this concept? This picture shows questions from placement test 5a. I can’t find a lesson about this in 5a...or any of the other books. Any ideas?
  7. I just have a question about this. I have always used the Primary Edition (US Edition, but do have some 3rd editions). My daughter is in 1st grade at a school that uses Math In Focus. She is bringing home work such as...middle of the school year, first grade... 528+257. She had regrouping in subtraction and addition, up to three digits, in mid first grade. Now, a couple weeks ago, she was bringing home mental math to the effect of 34+56. In my Singapore Math 1B book..the mental math was more along the lines of adding 9's and 8's and kept to adding in single digits. There were no charts that showed to add the tens first and then the ones like in the Singapore Math book. The 34+56 type problems were in 3A and beginning of 3B. I am wondering if it is possible that the teacher has made her own worksheets and maybe did not realize the progression? I know the teacher told me that she used Saxon math when she was growing up and preferred. Honestly, based on what I am seeing, I think I might prefer Saxon over MIF.
  8. If you use Singapore how to you schedule IP, CWP, workbook, and the textbook? My oldest is in 5 now, I have always bought the CWP but we have never completed the book, not even half the book. I always feel guilty, we just have a hard time finishing all of it. We have used the textbook, workbook, the mental math in the back of the HIG and a lot of the suggested activities on the HIG. Do you think this is enough? He does pretty good with math. Sometimes it takes him a while to get a topic. Fractions and decimals are harder for him, sometimes he needs a lot of repetition other times he does great. He has done well on the CAT test every year he has taken it, math is always his highest score, last year he was in the 96th percentile. I just wondered have I failed by not getting to the CWP or IP. I only bought IP one year and I think it's still on the shelf. Thank you.
  9. We finished Singapore Math 2A and 2B (Standards) during 2nd grade, pretty much right on the money. We started 3A at the beginning of this school year and we are just now ready to start 3B. I wouldn't say it's been difficult for DS, but because it covered so many new concepts (all the mutiplication facts! long division!) we had to go slowly. I am absolutely not panicking about being "behind." But I am wondering: Have others had this experience? Were you able to pick up the pace in 3B? Am I understanding correctly that students should finish 6A/6B (Standards) in 6th grade?
  10. My oldest is finishing up 5B Standard Edition. I will probably do 6A and 6B but then what? I very much like Singapore and would like to find a curriculum that is similar - spiral and builds great foundation for further math. Would love to hear suggestions, opinions, experiences. thank you
  11. My oldest is finishing up 5B Standard Edition. I will probably do 6A and 6B but then what? I very much like Singapore and would like to find a curriculum that is similar - spiral and builds great foundation for further math. Would love to hear suggestions, opinions, experiences. thank you
  12. Son seems to grasp math quickly. In the past, I have preferred doing math fact review and hands on activities to add to the math program. In the book we are in now, 3A, we have been skipping the reviews from the textbook but doing everything from the workbook. Would it be overkill to add in BJU math as a supplement? I don't mean doing all the activities and such. I mean teaching from the Singapore Math as our main math course, but then having the workbook to pull sheets from to use for extra review or reinforcement? I really like BJU but already own the books and workbooks and such for Singapore Math through 3B. Plus, BJU has a bit wider of a scope than Singapore Math. I am thinking I am likely to use BJU for prealgebra at the minimum. edited to add: I usually supplement with the Key's To series....but I kind of want to find a different direction this time. edited to add again : would CLE have way too much content to do along side Singapore Math?
  13. DD is finishing up Singapore Math Primary Mathematics 5A (Standards edition) Textbook + Workbook. Occasionally we supplement with Intensive Practice. Textbook+Workbook alone are too easy for DD, and we do not have time to work out all the problems in Intensive Practice on a regular basis. I am wondering if in the future we could replace the workbook with Intensive Practice; i.e., work through Textbook+Intensive Practice in entirety, and use the workbook only as a supplement for chapter reviews. Any opinions or advice? Many thanks in advance.
  14. Hello, I am looking for tutors who can introduce Singapore Math and teach my 8 year old (3rd grade) online/Skype. Can someone recommend tutors, we live in Eastern Time zone? Thanks

  16. I've seen a lot of references over the years to how SM (at least the U.S. edition) doesn't cover negative numbers, and that this can be a problem when moving into an American secondary sequence, because they assume you've seen negative numbers before. But I haven't seen much discussion about what people using SM *do* about it - how they go about adding in some negative number work. (My google-fu has failed me twice now on this subject, once a couple of years ago, and then again last night.) The only hint I found was that someone said that Lial Pre-Algebra had a good section on negative numbers, one that apparently doesn't require prior exposure. My oldest (7th) has gone through SM 5B (U.S. edition), and we just started AOPS Pre-algebra, which assumes you have some basic familiarity with negative numbers. At this point, I'm hoping to use either internet resources or what I already have on hand with my oldest (potentially useful things I own: Dragonbox Algebra, the first Hands-On Equations app, and Dolciani Pre-Algebra). That way we can just go ahead and get on with things (otherwise I'd be tempted to get a cheap used copy of Lial's, because it was the only mentioned resource in any thread that I saw last night). My plan, such as it is, is to hit Kahn Academy on negative numbers till she has the basic idea, and then move back into the Negation section of AOPS. Does that sound reasonable? Is there something better to do instead? In addition, since I have younger kids, and also because I'm very curious: what have other SM users done, or plan to do, about the lack of negative numbers in SM?
  17. A few weeks ago someone posted a link to a website that does Singapore Math but in an online fashion. Anyone have this? I thought I bookmarked it and cannot find it. The original poster was asking about if the online program would be enough.
  18. My son will be a 5th grader soon and I'm wondering about math. We have always used Singapore. I'm finding he needs to go over things a little more than what Singapore does. He needs more review. He can get it, it just takes a while and lots of review. We are finishing 4A and on the last review in the textbook he really struggled mainly fractions and area and perimeter. I've considered switching to something different but I don't want to bounce around. I just feel that he needs more review. I guess I'm wondering what you would do? He does the textbook, workbook, and the metal math in the back of the instructors guide. I considered getting the extra practice books but I'm not sure. He has always been the type that needs to go over things a little more to get it. I'm just afraid to bounce around too much, afraid I'll mess him up! Thank you for your time!

  23. With my older two children, I have used RightStart for kindergarten. I've tried that approach with my youngest son, and he is just not enjoying the program at all. He is the type who actually enjoys workbooks and learning to write letters/numbers. (I think he is trying to copy his older brother and sister who he sees working in actual books.) SO--I was thinking of trying Singapore's kindergarten program with him. If I do, what exactly do I need to buy? Can I use just the textbook? What about the story books? Those look really cute. Can anyone review those?
  24. Sorry if there is a thread on this. I tried searching and nothing came up. I am trying to order a Singapore Math book for ds6. I'm on the website and I'm very confused over which version. The Scope and Sequence didn't help- just made it more confusing. I just want to give him a placement test and buy one book and text to see how it works. I've been using K Essentials with his little sister, but I'm clueless on the upper levels. Do I just get the Primary Math U.S. 3rd Edition, and not the CC or other version? Also, I want the Home Instructor's Guide, correct, not the Teacher's guide? I'm trying not to spend a lot. MM is on sale through HSBCO this month, and I want to do a trial and see which is the better fit for him because everyone keeps suggesting Singapore. But this is a great time to buy MM if we stick with that. I placed him too low and have been stalling until the March sale to buy something new. What I've seen on the K Essentials, he'd still like MM better, but I think the grade school versions are different, right? ETA: Also do I need the Textbook, the workbook, and the IG, or can I get buy with less? I Fwiw, I've taken Kate Snow's Teaching Elementary Mathematics course and have the Elementary Mathematics for Teachers books she recommended.
  25. Does anyone have any information about what this new curriculum will be? I am switching one of my kids to Singapore, but I'm not sure which edition to go with, or if we should wait for the new one.
