Brie5 Stars Out Of 5My Kid Loves MathApril 22, 2019BrieQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5In public school, he detested math. Always made him cry. Teacher did not help being abusively strict which shut him down, but even with me he hated math. Such negative memories with it...until SINGAPORE MATH. It is not Common Core, thank God Almighty, it is logical for the logical, to the point, and throws in a logical spin on abstract thinking. Inside are visuals for your kid to figure it out on his own. That's what you want, right? Independent critical thinking. This math book (the textbook and workbooks) have significantly helped my son, and now it's his favorite subject. It even taught me how to do math in my head. I am supremely visual and it was always difficult for me to do any math without looking at something. This makes it sooooo simple! Cuz that's what we all want. That's what engineers want. Simple, fast equations to get the job done. These books work. They will help your child become a productive member of society by effeciently solving problems on his own, and build their confidence in one of America's least favorite subjects. GET THESE BOOKS.
WiconiLa Crosse, WisconisnAge: 35-44Gender: female5 Stars Out Of 5My favorite!September 14, 2011WiconiLa Crosse, WisconisnAge: 35-44Gender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5I 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.
Marilyn Holloway5 Stars Out Of 5March 10, 2010Marilyn HollowayI 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.
Brandy Luth5 Stars Out Of 5January 16, 2010Brandy LuthWe 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.
