happy-hs Posted November 10, 2011 Share Posted November 10, 2011 I could use some math advice. :) My 8yo (3rd grade) has always enjoyed math and I'd say he's on the "advanced" side. He is finishing up TT7 and will be done within weeks. He is also using LoF Pre-A Set and Becoming a Problem Solving Genius by Ed Zaccaro. He is flying through both and loving them. My plan was to let him start TT Pre-A after he finished TT7 in a few weeks, but he is getting bored with TT and has asked for a change. He wants to keep using LoF and Problem Solving Genius, but he would like a new book in place of TT. I'd like to let him switch if that's what he wants, but I am not sure what to move into. I've looked into Singapore because it gets such rave reviews. We looked over the placements tests together and I'm guessing that he'd be in the 6A-B books right now (simply because he knows everything on the 5A-B tests). Of course, I'd have him actually take the tests to be sure that the placement was correct. I've also considered AoPS. I've heard the Pre-A book is too advanced for young kids though so I have held off. (Anyone want to address this issue in particular?) I've heard there is a AoPS book or course for younger kids, but I haven't researched it much yet. Can anyone recommend these or other programs for a young, "mathy" kid? Thanks!
