skimomma Posted August 30, 2012 Share Posted August 30, 2012 My dd is staring Singapore 4A this fall. We have used the program from the beginning. However, somehow the bar diagram concept for CWP has not really stuck with dd. Now that the problems are getting more complicated, she cannot apply the diagrams. But, about 50% of the time, she can still do the more complicated problems without help, despite not using the diagrams. Problems that I cannot see the solution to without algebra. It is like she has the bar diagram concept somewhere in her head but cannot always draw it. Can seasoned Singapore users give me a little advice? Is it worth going back and trying to re-establish the skill? I am thinking of going back to CWP 2 and building the skill up from the ground. Or would this be a waste of time. I believe when we first covered the concepts, the problems were easy enough that dd just glazed over the diagrams. And now that she needs them to do some problems, she is lost. This is only in the CWP though, she aces all the regular workbook problems. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
