nomadicmama Posted November 8, 2012 Share Posted November 8, 2012 I'm at my wit's end. My son recently completed Singapore 5A&B. It was our 3rd year with Singapore. We liked it but I was having trouble keeping up with him and I often found the solutions confusing if they were even in the teacher's guide at all. I thought it would be best to switch to a curriculum that is designed to be done without a teacher but challenging. So we decided to try AoPS. After two weeks I realized it wasn't going to work for us. He was miserable and confused and when I tried to help him we both became miserable and confused. I want my kids to have a good education but the biggest reason we homeschool is to develop strong family relationships and character. It's hard to have a strong relationship when we are both stressed and unhappy. We really loved Singapore but it intimidates me since I pretty much stink at teaching math. We were going to go with TT or MUS but then I got nervous that I would be selling my ds short with a program that doesn't challenge him enough. But since I haven't used those curriculums perhaps they are challenging enough? So my question is are there any middle ground pre-algebra curriculums that are challenging but not overwhelming for a non-mathy teacher? :) We want something user friendly. We are traveling fulltime so I can't use anything that needs a consistent internet connection. What do other non-mathy teachers use? Thanks so much!
