What is Math in Focus?

Recommended Posts

So--a question. I'm researching math programs for use in a couple of years. I had not heard of Math in Focus before a thread was started here asking about whether to use MiF or Saxon. I just did an internet search on MiF, and I'm a little confused. Is it affiliated with Singapore Math (the same thing as the Singapore Standards edition, maybe?), or is it a Singapore-style math program not affiliated with Singapore Math? What are the differences between it and Singapore Math? I'm so confused :confused1:

Math in Focus is the same as My Pals are Here… just the American version.  I used it the first semester this year with DS1, but I found that it was really hard to transition to a Singapore style program in 4th grade.   They have free samples you can access online at the Harcourt site which gives you the entire book, workbook, and teacher's manual.
