Abeka is a good math program- but- it doesn't teach tricks at all. It's just drill, drill, and more drill. I like it for K and 1st grade. |

Abeka math is very drill oriented. Singapore is big on mental math, word problem, concepts, and they also drill and teach a variety of ways to solve problems. |

I agree with what others have said about Singapore. If you're a fairly math-minded mom, I don't think you'll need the HIG. I only needed to have on hand the answer keys for the primary levels. You can always order them later if you find you'd like to have help in teaching. |

We have chosen A Beka math every year so far up to 7th grade. A Beka is a spiral math program, very colorful, and geared for the college bound kiddo. |
