Mamaurick 0 Report post Posted March 10 HI! I was wondering if Singapore recommends any specific math once your children have "aged out" of Singapore. Thank you! Stacey Share this post Link to post Share on other sites

Jenny 6 Report post Posted March 10 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.

Yes, sorry, I meant the company, Singapore Math. 🙂 Thank you for your answer! Share this post Link to post Share on other sites

Jenny, I have a question about this, if you don't mind: Dimensions Math 7 and 8 already do quite a bit of Geometry, while other texts don't - they concentrate on Algebra, then they have a whole separate year of Geometry. There is a Prentice Hall series that seems to be like that, for example. So my question is, how much of what you call "high school geometry" would a DM7+DM8 student know already? And what difference would you see between a high school Algebra 2 course, and a college text for intermediate algebra? Thank you!! Share this post Link to post Share on other sites

Jenny 6 Report post Posted May 31 Geometry with proofs, if you want proofs. And there is a some geometry Dimensions Math does not include, even if you don't, such as secants, tangents, arcs, chords, angles and segments in a circle, constructions and loci. Vectors. Transformations. Symmetry of plane figures. Some geometry texts do include a little trigonometry, but that can wait. Share this post Link to post Share on other sites
