  1. My oldest will be (hopefully) finished or close to it with Singapore Primary Math 6A at the end of her 6th grade year (in July). We are using the US editions if that matters. She likes to be able to work independently and does math fairly slowly. What do you recommend for a good math program to follow that? :bigear: Thanks!
  2. 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?
  3. whether to continue on and do NEM2 or do AoPS Algebra. I have made a mental list of the pros and cons of each and I still can't make a choice. Ugh.
  4. Just curious. My ds is halfway through NEM 1. The first couple of chapters took a LONG time, but then his progress sped up. I'm very impressed with this curriculum so far. Some great deep thinking problems, as well as a solid, conceptual framework. We're using the textbook and the teacher's manual. So far, we've done every single problem in every part of the text -- the examples, the exercises, the challenger and problem solving sections, as well as the revisions, miscellaneous, and investigations. We tend to do the examples and investigations together at the whiteboard, and the rest ds does independently. I'm starting to consider skipping a bit here and there. We're about to enter the geometry chapters. I was surprised to see that the last half of NEM 1 is essentially all geometry. One of the reasons I picked NEM was because it was an "integrated" curriculum. I didn't want to do months on end of geometry. Oh, well. :) I'd be interested to hear who else is using this curriculum and how you make use of the materials.
  5. 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!:)
  6. I've used Singapore Math since 3rd grade for DS1 who is going into 8th grade now. He completed NEM1 last year and did well in it. We like the format. I was reading over some reviews recently and saw one on RR that I don't remember reading before. I'll quote it here: "Compared to Saxon, NEM begins introducing algebraic concepts earlier, generally includes more complex geometry problems, and covers more trigonometry. However, Saxon’s Algebra 2 course covers a wider variety of topics, including polar coordinates, imaginary and complex numbers, and logarithms. In Algebra 2, students must solve 3 by 3 systems of linear equations, while NEM only covers 2 by 2 systems. Also, NEM is extremely weak in coordinate graphing. The slope-intercept method of graphing lines is also not covered. Instead, students graph equations by plotting points from an x-y chart. Systems of equations are primarily solved by algebraic manipulation; graphical interpretations are not emphasized." So, my question is why would NEM not cover 3x3 systems? I can kind of understand not teaching slope intercept form. I would assume they teach the how you get to slope intercept, and then the students would intuitively use what they learn for future solutions. But, why leave out 3x3 and also why not work with graphical interpretations of systems of equations? I feel like there has to be a reason here, and I'm just too inexperienced to know what it is. Do you know if this review is accurate? Are these things omitted? If so, is it a problem or is there a bigger picture out there that causes this program to still be successful. Thanks in advance.
  7. Has anybody here gone from Singapore 6b straight to Algebra? With my Oldest we are going into Pre-Algebra, but my second is really good at Math. I am not sure what to do with him. I was thinking of supplementing with Negative number stuff and going straight into Algebra for him. I was also thinking of ordering AOPS Pre Algebra and looking through that. I would still like to know what others have done though. Are there any other weaknesses in SM that I may need to touch upon to jump straight in with Algebra? Thanks? Danielle
  8. 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.
  9. Does NEM math have a HIG? Also what is the difference between New Elementary Mathematics, Discovering Mathematics, New Syllabus Mathematics, and New Mathematics Counts? Do any of those have HIG's?Are any of those for after the middle school math?
  10. We are presently using NEM and are very happy with it. However, I am concerned about not covering algebra and geometry thoroughly enough for my child to be college ready. Will it be enough or should I find a stand-alone algebra and geometry program to go alongside the NEM?
  11. Hello all, My 8th grade son has completed Singapore PM 1-6, LOF Fractions and Decimal & Percents and Dolciani's Pre-Algebra. This year we decided to try NEM 1. While he is doing OK, I don't think it's a great fit for him. He needs more explanation than is offered, I think. I had a 23 year old friend come today to evaluate him. She is a homeschool graduate who is an honest-to-goodness rocket scientist. She has agreed to tutor my son in math, which is fantastic! She agreed that NEM isn't exactly right and recommended Bob Jones as a possibility. She also really liked the looks of the LoF texts. She used Saxon exclusively, but thought he might be bored to tears with it, given his personality. My son is obsessed with history and languages. He is very bright, but has decided that he doesn't really like math. What sayeth the hive? Bob Jones? Bob Jones supplemented with LoF? Something else? What would you do? Thanks!
  12. Has anyone used this or any of the other 7th+ grade math from Singapore? (NEM, NSM or NMC) Would really like to her some feedback on this and there really is not much out there. DD did will with Singapore up through 6B and I have yet to find a good match and am wondering about switching her to one of the programs they offer for older kids.
  13. 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!
  14. If you happily used Singapore Math through elementary and switched from Singapore Math 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!
  15. My son asked me to post and say that he is studying together with classmates for physics and he can't believe how much people struggle with what actually to do for the problems. He says that physics is all word problems (naturally) and that NEM turned out to be very good preparation. I just wanted to offer some encouragement to those who have chosen to stick with Singapore. NEM was such a struggle sometimes, since this son isn't mathy, that I was often tempted to try something else, but now it is obvious that it was a good thing we stuck with it. -Nan
  16. I have Chalk Dust PreAlgebra, which, after years of Singapore, looks scary. As usual, I'm starting to second-guess the Chalk Dust and am considering alternatives. Ds catches on pretty quickly to math concepts when his head's not in the clouds. Any sugggestions?
  17. I'm trying to figure out the sequencing for High School math with my ds. This is recommended by Latin Centered Curriculum, but I haven't heard of any one actually using this route. Is it comprehensive? Would the series be enough to score well on the ACT or college entrance exams? Or would one have to use the College Mathematics in the series as well? TIA!
  18. My dd (14) is entering 9th grade next year. She is about half way though Discovering Mathematics 1A. I am worried that at this rate, she will not be prepared when it comes time for the SAT. How much should I push her? How far through the series does she need to get before the SAT? Thank you!
  19. This is something that came up in a post I did on the K-8, but I thought I should ask here. We always figured after 6b we'd use NEM because we love Singapore Math, but in reading it seems like most people move away from singapore math then. Is there any reason not to go ahead and use NEM after 6b? Has anyone gone all the way through NEM? Pros cons? What did you do for 11th and 12th grade? :001_smile: Thanks.
  20. I know this is likely been discussed over and over and over again, but when I "search," I can't see to come up with anything. Would love to hear your thoughts-- I'm leaning towards Jacobs for Algebra (I assume in 8th grade?), but what would I use in between? Any guidance would be *lovely*!! Thanks so much!
  21. Has anybody used Singapore NEM all of the way through level 4. If so, how prepared was your student for precalc and calc?
  22. I was reading a thread in K-8 and saw this math program recommended. I went to their site, and I like what I see as far as the questions they use for math placement - they appear very similar to what's on the SAT in their wording. For anyone using this program, for level 3 or 4, how does it compare to Saxon in scope? Are the lesson problems word problems similar to the ones used on their placement tests? Do the workbooks have these type of word problems, or are they more basic to reinforce the concepts? I guess what I'm asking or looking for, is to supplement Saxon with this program just for the word problems. Is there an easy way to do this? TIA! :)
  23. My son has been doing Singapore Math grades 5-7 and we have loved it. Now he's ready to start the progression of Algebra I, Geometry, Algebra II, etc. Singapore Math does not follow this American progression, but rather integrates algebra and geometry and eventually trig. over the years. I hate to leave Singapore but am concerned that I might "mess him up" for placement if he should go back to the public school down the road. Any experience with this situation and/or advice? Thanks.
  24. I finally have the Dolciani I've wanted for years and my son is enjoying it. We're only on chapter 2 at the moment, but he says it is very easy. It will pick up soon though, right? The beginnings of textbooks are often gentle like that before getting down to business. He has used Singapore up to now and enjoyed the challenge. I hesitated to go on to NEM because I'd heard it explains concepts without using the math vocabulary and that this could stump him later. Now I keep reading about Art of Problem Solving and it just sounds so good. In my curriculum-junkie brain it is the perfect combination of NEM challenge with the proofy vocabulary of Dolciani all blended together. Someone tell me to stick with the Dolciani and stop looking at other people's green grass. Please?
  25. Hi! I'm not very up on the levels of math that various books covers. :glare: So I'm trying to learn. We're planning next year's math course and when we are done, I'm not sure what or where we will be in math. Here's what's on the plate (we school from July to June) finishing up jacob's geometry, Dolciani Algebra structure and method 1 - might run us until sept/Oct just depends on where we finish in the next two months starting in sept New Elementary Math 2 Starting Dolciani Algebra and trig structure Method book 2 When we finish, I can say we have completed __________ level of math? I just don't know where that puts us or where I go from there. Thanks
