We began using Singapore math when our children were 5. Our children studied 3A and 3B when they were 7 years old. While that seems young, if one is diligent in working through the previous books, it is very possible to have gained the ability to learn at that rate. Note: Learning math facts through Classical Conversations was a tremendous benefit to our children as they studied Singapore Math. If CC isn't an option, you may wish to give though to learning skip counting songs or something like Kathy Troxel's multiplication fact songs. While this program has required much effort from both child and parent, we have also received great rewards (e.g., mathematical skills, understanding that we are "in this" together and don't quit, etc...). A healthy determination is required.
This product is an easy to follow with the other books. It has vibrant pictures and color. We love this product!! This is the second time using this workbook because my first child understood it so well I just had to use it for my next child.
Good textbook with challenging workouts, steady progression, repetition and reviews. Each class has it all, it is not overwhelming and no homework is needed. The bad part is the complete absence of colors in the book. For 7-8 year olds, black and white books are a bit boring.
