Very pleased with Singapore Math so far. My kindergartener was ready for more than basic patterns and numbers so we started her here. The lessons are not too long which holds her attention but we did buy the Intensive practice for the days we need a little more.
I have a sixth grader that needed a fresh start in math. She had/has lots of holes in what she has learned in math. Example, she can calculate range, mean, median and mode and explain what they stand for but could NOT set up the simplest math problem on her own. The intinsive practice books are making her think. The value of the numbers are 1st grade level. But the problems require more thought. The IP book also does not look like a first grade book because it does NOT provide the visual helps like the workbook. The IP book moves much faster than the workbook. I currently have a first grader too. The workbook is great for him...I cannot use the IP book as much with him. He is not ready.
