lea1 Posted January 25, 2011 Share Posted January 25, 2011 I had never heard of Robinson before yesterday but spent a lot of time on their site reading last night and today. I'm curious if anyone is using a hybrid of Robinson's method for math along with the majority of the WTM philosophy? If so, how is that working out for you? Would I need to purchase Robinson in order to be able to understand and use their method for math? (mostly about how to get a younger child from manipulatives and flashcards to the full 2 hours a day. Also, I read somewhere that there are a number of things you would need to make sure to cover before starting Saxon 4/5, such as money, time and there were a number of others. I would be concerned I might miss something. And, lastly, is anyone using it with a math program other than Saxon? Just curious because I was planning to use Singapore but have heard they are not known for having many practice problems and that is what Robinson recommends. I would plan to use Singapore's Intensive Practice and Challenging Word Problems so that might help. However, I also wonder if Singapore provides enough step by step information for a child to self-teach. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
