Singapore Math: Primary Math Workbook 3B US Edition
Quality program; great effort=great rewards
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 teach skip counting songs or something else 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.

Best Math workbooks for the elementary Children!
As a home schooling mom, I tried tons of Math books for my kids. My kids are excel in the Math of their grade level, and
Primary Mathematics series are the best workbooks for them.
It made them to practice basic calculation skills and also to think for the applied word problems, too. One thing that I didn't satisfy for the whole series is it needs to deal with more on Geometry and graph interpretation.

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!

We have used Singapore Primary Math for 3 years and are very happy with it. We love that there is a huge focus on mental math practice. My son has excelled in math because of this and I highly recommend it.
