3 Stars Out Of 5
Higher grade levels lack Instruction
May 2, 2013
I grew up in Japan and Korea as a kid and love their education systems. As a homeschool parent, I am always looking for affordable curriculum. We are in middle school math now and have had to switch from Singapore Math not because of aging out, but because the books lack the instructions for how to do the harder math it assigns. We use the Textbooks, Workbooks, and Tests books as supplements now, and are using Lifepac math now, but we are still looking for any other math curriculum, our goal for University is Engineering so we want to be prepared.
We have used several other math programs before coming to Singapore. This program is just what my daughter needs. It's fast-moving, with little review. It has challenging word problems that keep her thinking about number and how to manipulate them to get the answer.
She found most of the other programs dreadfully boring, but is excited every day when we pull out her math book.
Excellent resource. We would give all the Singapore Math books 5 stars! The books are visually clear and easy to understand. I recommend taking the placement test to make accurate book selection. We did and ended up starting in a lower book that I thought we would, but quickly gained speed. Now our child is faster than a calculator and loves math!
My daughter, who struggles learning her math concepts, loves this book. The lessons are short and very easy. I am so grateful to have found this book. She will be testing next month so this has come at just the right time.
