  1. 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?
  2. 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?
  3. 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.
  4. 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
  5. 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
  6. Some kids need more practice than what is in Singapore Math, too. It’s so individual how much practice kids need.
  7. 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
  8. 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!
  9. 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 🙂
  10. Whether you’ve just pulled your child out of school or have been preparing to homeschool since they were babies, taking the first step toward homeschooling can be overwhelming. It’s completely normal to feel a little nervous about this. You are not alone! We’ve all at some point been pretty much where you are. Panicked and overwhelmed. Not to worry, the Hive Mind here at the Well-Trained Mind Forums have put together this letter and link fest to get you started on your path to homeschooling. So grab some coffee and your favorite snack and get ready to begin your adventures in homeschooling!
  11. 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.
  12. 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
  13. 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
  14. 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,

  16. There used to be a list on the Singapore math website that listed which specific manipulatives are needed for each version and level of Singapore math. I cannot find this for the life of me! Does anyone know where to find this information? Thanks!
  17. Hello all! Question about math curriculum for my 5 year old. Background: I began our HS journey when we were thrust into quarantine on March 17. I had already planned to HS for 2020-21, which would have been my first year of HS, but since I already had all the curriculum, I decided to get a head start. I had been a high school teacher for 8 years, and I was not scared, worried or apprehensive about teaching my own children, so I dove in. Not a good idea to start with next years' work, but we survived. Also background: a good math teacher friend of mine recommended Singapore

  19. 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
  20. 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.
  21. 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
  22. I am having a really hard time deciding between Primary, Dimensions, or Math in Focus. (I'm not interested in Math Mammoth or the other 2 flavors of Primary.) This is for The Girl, btw. I need a good, well-laid out TM to teach me how to teach this. I have the procedure part down, pretty much. DImensions 5 isn't done yet. Not that it matters as she will need to start lower, anyway. Has the fewest books to juggle. Primary has difficult (to me) to use Home Instructor's Guides. Been around the longest, though. MiF is really expensive (and yes, I need the TM's). Does it add a bunch
  23. Any thoughts on starting a first grader on RightStart B when he hasn't done A? He's fairly but not crazy strong in math (in the advanced math group in his public school, but not ahead grade levels or anything). And he had the good fortune of being in a public school that offered Singapore math, which I know focuses on mental math. He's still not as strong in this area though as I'd like. He is comfortable with the number line, and with addition and subtraction- but he brute forces it each time, counting each number up or down. If you were to ask him 30 minus 10, he would sometimes count down b
  24. Help! 😶 DD11 (12yo this fall): Has done really well with Singapore math K-5... It was getting a bit stale so we hopped over to Beast Academy 5 for a bit... Which was fun until it got so laborious and drawn-out that she lost momentum... I freaked out a bit, ordered Singapore 6A / 6B, which we hopped back to last year... Though Beast was intriguing, fresh, and fun at first, and she did pretty well with it, I could tell she was really relieved at the cut-and-dried-ness of Singapore (as in, do X lesson, finish XYZ pages...and you're done!). Beast was just a little too open-ended for her
  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
