    What comes next?

    Yes, sorry, I meant the company, Singapore Math. 🙂 Thank you for your answer!

    What comes next?

    Singapore meaning the company Singapore Math? No, we do not have any specific recommendation. After Dimensions Math 8 students could do highschool geometry or algebra 2. I personally did a bit of geometry and then college texts for intermediate algebra or precalculus.

    What comes next?

    HI! I was wondering if Singapore recommends any specific math once your children have "aged out" of Singapore. Thank you! Stacey

    Imperial and metric

    They all cover both systems of measurement, because they have been adapted for US so imperial system was added, but emphasis is more on metric system. US edition has a Home Instructor's Guide for grades 1-6, Standards edition for grades 1-5. Dimensions Math does not yet have a separate home instructor's guide, but the teacher's guide is quite usable, just adapt some of the activities. So if you like the looks of that edition, lack of a dedicated Home Instructor's Guide should not keep you from it.
  6. Dear all, I am new to this forum and also new to Singapore Math. I will start teaching my son and he already did the placement test. He should start grade 2B. I just need some directions and advise regarding which edition to follow. Does the Standard, US and Dimensions covers imperial and metric system measurements? Which one comes with the home instructor? Thanks in advance.

    Singapore Math

    Define what you mean by heuristic vs holistic. See https://www.singaporemath.com/Singapore_Math_s/331.htm

    UK SINGAPORE EDITION

    It is similar in approach to a certain extent i.e. concrete to pictorial to abstract, and use of bar models, and some mental math, and word problems, but follows UK standards which is behind Singapore's in some areas and hence behind Primary Math.

    6a page 69 question 9

    Just figured it out
  11. The answer starts off by stating that "Charles and Bob have 8 out of 11 units, and Dave have 3 out of 11 units." I see in the problem where it states that Charels has 6/11, but how did they get to Charles and Bob having 8 out of 11 units?
  12. Jenny - I followed you until you got to "3 units apples and 3 units mangoes is 3 x 120 = 360". How did you get 3 units of each?

    UK SINGAPORE EDITION

    If you can not find the kindergarten one as a UK edition either. Then you should try the online Singapore math tuition agency.

    Pros and Cons of Homeschooling?

    I'm not too sure why you have put the question into the Singapore Math Forum, but since Singapore Math to be a central part of my homeschooling curriculum, I'll share a few thoughts. If you have more questions, please feel free to request my contact information, as I homeschooled for 20 years. Should you start homeschooling? Only you can answer that question. I would highly recommend it, especially if you are facing issues with your local school system. Some Pros? You will know exactly what your children are learning which means you can determine the amount of time spent on a subject and how that subject is taught. You have the opportunity to spend more time with your children. Your children will have more time to develop hobbies and other skills such as learning a musical instrument, playing sports or just doing a lot of hands on learning. When you have successfully homeschooled children through all the grades, you will enjoy the results of your efforts. Some Cons? Depending on your personality and sense of dedication, the task could seem overwhelming, and it takes some time to adjust to being both the parent and the teacher to the child. You have to be organized and willing to make changes. Your child may not adjust well (if you are pulling them out of a public school setting.) If you are like me, the worst part was having to keep all those records (but it does get easier). There are lots of websites with a lot of good information available. As far as using Singapore Math, switching from standard math curriculum to Singapore math was the best decision I ever made.

    Teachers Guides for Evaluation

    Please email school@singaporemath.com with your request.
  18. Is it possible to get Teacher's Guides to evaluate in the curriculum selection process? Our school is starting the Review Process and would love to consider Singapore Math, but have not prior experience with their product. Thank you!

    Mid-year switch?

    We are pulling my son from his current school to home school. He is currently working on fractions (addition/subtraction and multiplication/division being introduced) in common core. I would like to switch OUT of common core. He's 8 but in 4th grade and the advanced class so I think they're really working on 5th grade concepts but no books are sent home for me to gather anymore information. Is there an assessment to determine which book would be the best place to start? OR a way to see the concepts each book covers? Thanks in advance!

    Singapore Math

    I am just want to know what exactly is Singapore Math? Is it heuristic math or holistic? Someone, please advise.

    sixth grade private school

    With regard to what our company sells, Dimensions Math 6 is for 6th grade, and probably a better choice than Primary Math 6 if you have not done any of the Primary Math books we sell. I suggest you get the textbook, in case topics do not line up exactly with what your child is doing in school.

    Daily Math Practice helps your child to use their skills. In this book, the practice activities are set up in a spiraling scope and sequence so that students practice skills at regular intervals. Each week’s problems are based on a grade-level appropriate topic so every time a skill shows up, it has a new context, requiring students to dig into their memories, recall what they know, and apply it to a new situation.
