STEM students- Which elementary math programs did you use for them?

Recommended Posts

Thank you all! I have a lot to think about.

 

I am know contemplating moving my older son from Saxon to another program in preparation for AoPS. He has tried MM in the past and it did not click for him.  He is going into sixth grade and has just completed Saxon 65. Any suggestions for a specific singapore math program to help bridge the gap to AoPs?

 

Saxon 65 to AoPS PreAlgebra will work fine. It's switching from Saxon Algebra (and onward) to AoPS that I meant to suggest would be a problem.

 

Just be prepared for some adjustment early on!

Thank you.

 

We spent some time on Alcumus today, it was a good start and definitely an adjustment.

My D2 who is stem-focused high school junior used CLE after stress overload with Singapore early in. Conceptually she was amazing but had no retention of math facts in the primary years. Very glitchy. CLE was great for her but did not develop her conceptual skills as well as I'd like.

 

I don't think AoPS would have worked for her. She is not a whiz but more if a slow and steady type.

 

For my last one at home, I'm using Singapore but along with a review program. It would not work otherwise.

 

For daily review:

 

I've used Evan-Moor Daily Math which was a bit light.

 

This year I used Daily Math 4 Today. It was alright but ends at fifth grade.

 

Next year I'm bumping up to Simple Solutions. She has a short attention span so it might need to be modified.

 

I'm trying to capture the best of both worlds.
