  1. Not sure where to post this because this program spans middle school and high school, but I would love to hear from people who have liked and disliked this program and why. I like it because it is integrated, and has the problems sorted by difficulty in the workbook so my son can just work on the harder ones. It also appears to be direct teaching (in contrast to the discovery approach aops uses), but the harder workbook problems are still very difficult, which I need. But I have never seen these books so feel like I am guessing. Any comments would be incredibly helpful, Thanks Ruth in NZ
  2. I am doing some planning for the future. I'm looking to create a 3 year course in algebra, geometry, and basic probability/statistics, and would like some BTDT advice. This is for my younger son, who is good at math, but likes variety. He has not like AoPS preA, and I think is more of a direct learner (plus he does not have that kind of intensity about math). He is currently doing preA through MEP secondary, which is integrated. I will stick with MEP this year, but I am finding that it is written with too many ability levels in mind, so there is a lot to sort through to get to the good stuff. My goal is to keep somewhat within the NZ system by integrating maths, but not using the NZ textbooks (or even Cambridge) for these lower levels because they are just too algorithmic/formulaic (both NZ and Cambridge textbooks get better in upper levels), and my son finds that kind of material really dull. He does need a challenge, but not too much of one. ;) I've heard good things about Foerster's algebra, and am looking for suggestions for geometry and basic probability/statistics. Geometry does not need to be proof heavy as NZ does not do geometric proofs, but it does need to be interesting/challenging. For statistics/probability, we are talking really basic - so not high school level. I would also like to get a feel for scheduling, testing, review, etc for an integrated course using multiple textbooks. Given my son is young, I do have time for extras also. So open to suggestions for fun resources. This program would be for 6th - 8th grade, but include 'high school level' Algebra 1 and Geometry. Hope you guys don't mind me asking on the High School Board as I know there are so many of you with so many ideas and experiences. Thanks, Ruth in NZ
  3. DD is an 8th grader who just finished Primary Mathematics 6B this summer. I used Singapore with all my kids. My boys whipped through PM, and started with NEM, but they got bogged down in it. So, we switched to AoPS. Dd is not at "mathy" as her brothers so she took longer to finish PM, but she did get it and is solid. I really don't think she is AoPS material and since we didn't like NEM as much, I thought we'd go to Discovering Mathematics - another Singapore Math product that I considered to be "NEM light." Well, it is not going well. Actually, it is a disaster. We are discovering huge holes in the teaching - i.e. only a rudimentary introduction to exponents and then expecting them to figure out how to manipulate them on their own. The teacher's manual is a waste. They should just call it a solutions manual and be done. There was nothing in there to clue me in that I should have explicitly taught exponent manipulation before assigning the exercise. So, instead of having me review every single problem before assigning an exercise to make sure she has the knowledge needed (and to prevent tears and gnashing of teeth), I am chucking it. So, what should I try instead. I want a good, solid grounding in math. She is interested in Psychology or other "soft sciences", so she will need decent math skills, but probably not nearly as much as her more hard science oriented brothers. (So, no Teaching Textbooks or anything like that.) I majored in Math in college, but I am finding that having children has killed too many brain cells or Singapore's problems are so much more intense, that I have trouble with some of the harder problems. I need a decent teacher's manual with any program that I choose plus full solutions manuals. My boys taught themselves and then took AoPS classes so I didn't keep up with them. Any guidance here?
  4. It is hard to spend over 120 dollars for just one year of math. What do your buy if you want to spend less than that? I am thinking the two textbooks, the workbook, and the workbook TM. is this enough?
  5. It seems like most people talk about switching programs for higher math. The Singapore method is working really well for my son, he is only in level 2b, but if it works I figured I would stick with it. Is there a reason people switch?
  6. Does anyone use this? The samples look great, my daughter is very comfortable with the Singapore approach and it looks like a good program. It's written for grades 7-10? or 11? How would you put this on their high school transcripts? Would this look questionable on their transcripts - because of the integrated math? (FWIW, I have no plans to put my kids back in ps.) Would a college/high school recognize this program? Also, there *seems* to be alot of support materials. Were they enough? Does this program end at the calculus level? IOW, after finishing the program, would my daughter be ready to take calculus? I've read a few threads on this program, but it sounds like only one or two people have tried it. I really appreciate any info or opinions! Thank-you for taking time to respond.
  7. Any opinions on using DM after MM 6B? Obviously, this wouldn't be us for a while. :) But, I really like the idea of integrated math in the later years and DM seems like it may be a good option for us at that point. Would the terminology be too different? Would it be too big a leap not having used Singapore from the beginning? Now would be the perfect time for us to switch to SM so I'm trying to gather enough info to be sure about my math decisions.
  8. My 6th grade dd has finished Singapore 6B and I'm trying to decide where to go from here. We've used Singapore exclusively since 1st grade and she's done very well with the curriculum. What are others doing after Singapore? What are some things I should be considering when making a decision? Thanks for your advice!:)
  9. We are using Singapore NEM 1 for Grade 7 - we just started it after Christmas. My son is doing all right with it, but it is a bit of a slog, and we are going very slowly. It takes us two days to do each lesson. I'm thinking of changing to Discovering Mathematics, but I am nervous because it's not recommended in TWTM. Any thoughts? TIA Anne.
  10. If you used Singapore Math through elementary and switched in middle school or later, what did you choose for middle school and high school? Do you like it? Why or why not? What would you choose if you had it to do all over again? TIA!
  11. Is anyone using Singapore's newer program - Discovering Mathematics? Reviews? I'm thinking we will use DM 7 instead of Dolciani Algebra next year. Singapore math has worked really well for us. It is possibly the only curriculum we have been using the full seven years we've been homeschooling. Is it enough by itself? It doesn't have the extra books we have always used (IP and CWP.) I suppose I am looking for some positive reviews before I spend $100+ on math curriculum after already having the Dolciani materials ready to go. :)
  12. Just curious what those who may be using it think. DS will be finishing up this year with 6B and I am trying to decide in what direction to go. I know I want to hold off on Algebra to at least 8th or 9th grade and just lay a firmer foundation. I own a couple of pre-algebra books but I like the variety that DM offers. My main hesitation is that I want to do a strictly algebra course when the time comes so that means we would only do the 1st 2 levels of DM if I wait till 9th grade for Algebra. Anyway, I would really appreciate some reviews.
  13. I am considering Discovering Math for my 7th grader instead of NEM. If anyone is using DM now, I would appreciate a review. Thanks so much. Ann
  14. I am trying to decide between Singapore's New Elementary Math 1 and Discovering Mathematics 1. I have been on their website and seen the comparisons. I like the scope and sequence in NEM but the instruction in DM. Can anyone give me a comparison from their own use? I want one that does a thorough job of explaining area, angles, etc. plus reviews all the basics. I am hoping one of our local bookstores carries both and I can see them side by side without having to order them.
  15. Where would that leave us for 11th grade? Algebra 2? Trig? Am I right in thinking that if we were to do at least 3 years that geometry would be covered? I really like the looks of the program from the samples and I am thinking that maybe I won't switch to a conventional algebra 1 for 8th grade. These are the thoughts that I am having for my oldest, mathy ds who will be in 7th grade next year.:bigear:
  16. Does anybody know what the difference is between these 2 Singapore Math programs? I am considering them for my mathy 7th grader. He has spent this year working through RS Geometry and Key to Fractions and Decimals and Challenging Word Problems. It was sort of an odd-ball math year for him because he is ahead in math and I didn't want him to do algebra in 6th grade. Thanks for your help.
