Singapore Math review
My children go to a private school ( I am thinking of HS next year), and use Singapore Math ( GRADE 2,5,8). I would give it a 7 out of 10- the reason being is that my two older kids didn't start SM until later grades, so they struggled because they had to relearn how to do a new math method, so to speak, if you are going to use SM start it right from the get go, unless you have the type of kid that can switch gears easily. Mine can't!
I do love the problems as they really relate to everyday math used in the real world. I also like the fact that the pages are not covered in comics, very black and white, not distracting. The books go for quality not quantity, as so many of the public school textbooks do. I do recommend you buy the Home Instructor's Guide, it was very helpful for me, but then again I am not brilliant in the area of math.
Hope this helps.
