I LOVE the scaffolding and that this book series teaches MATH, and LOTS of MATH. It's NOT full of extraneous garbage that just clutters up pages. I appreciate that ideas are introduced several times, each time fleshing them out a little more. For example, in the first grade year, iterative addition is introduced, and then multiplication, but it isn't really worked with much, it's just that the idea is presented. And again the second year, but this time, there's more in depth, and it's accompanied by skip counting and some drill.
Skills are clearly outlined with simple and straightforward examples and the corresponding workbook assignments are easy to identify.
If I had to criticize something, I'd say that sometimes there's too little practice, but there are other, additional practice books that round it out nicely.
I use Singapore math for my kids because they are on a higher level than others that I have used. I have been very happy with their products and I don't even do a price comparison any more, I just go straight to cb to buy.
We moved from Saxon to Singapore. Love the K and 1 and 2 books, as well as the extra practice accompanying books. We have the intense practice too, but don't use it much. My kids love Singapore, as it leaves room for lots of hands-on activities and online games like time 4 learning (for drill or repetition when needed). My kids dreaded Saxon last year and are so happy with the variety of singapore. They can move on when they know it! I can tell they are better problem solvers, because of this curriculum.
We love Singapore math. The kids move so quickly thorugh it, but they don't seem to miss a beat. I do supplement for reinforcement, but that can be with my own made up problems or the internet. Singapore really encourages conceptual learning.
