Laurie5 Stars Out Of 5depthNovember 15, 2013LaurieQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5I just received the 4th grade homeschool set, and started today working with my daughter. I absolutely love the way they cover multiplication and long division! I had seen this approach in Ray's Mathematics, and was already trying to use the Ray's approach before receiving the books, feeling a little unsure of myself. Now, I find the same methods in Math in Focus 4th grade! This is encouraging; however, I wish I had bought the Teacher's editions, because I'm struggling to find the words to explain this to my daughter. And it looks like I can't go back and purchase the teacher's edition separately. So, I'll keep experimenting with explanations until it clicks. I am so glad they are restoring understanding to memorized procedures. I'm pleased!

I used this program this year (actually 3A, 3B, 4A and this 4B) on my 5th grader. I wanted to use the singapore method for math, but after looking at those books I realized it may have been too late to "start" plain singapore with him. I then found Saxon Singapore Math in Focus and have been very pleased with it. We chose to fly through those mentioned above as he was very familiar with the basic facts from public school. So we just had to go over the "different way to look at the problems" which is what makes the singapore method desirable for me. I have seen other reviews that spoke of how the word problems were difficult and unanswerable. I would question if these moms were also (as I was) new to the method. I see the biggest differences when helping my son solve the word problems. This method is a very clear way of solving word problems, which are often what main-stream students find the most challenging anyway. In short, I am very happy with this program and plan on using it this fall as well.
