## Math in Focus: The Singapore Approache

## Math in Focus: The Singapore ApproacheBy: hotcoffee Jan 11, 2011 06:51:PM
I plan to buy math curriculum for my 2nd grader and Kindergartener. I heard lots good review about singapore math. But I'm confused which one to buy? The standard edition, the primary edition, or Math in Focus: The Singapore Approache? |

We use Standards edition. My daughter is in first grade if that helps. It is a good math program...although she struggled a lot when it came to adding/subtracting where the solution was between 11 and 20 because Singapore's method is very different than most traditional math programs. However we persevered and she is really starting to get it. :) |

We have always used the primary edition, but I have not looked over the other editions. |

I stumbled across MATH-IN-FOCUS, as well (Rainbow Resource has a very detailed review, as does Cathey Duffy's site). I was confused, too, trying to decide between Singapore Primary Math (US), or Teaching Textbooks, or Math-In-Focus. OR keep with Abeka Math that my kids used last year at private school and did so well (couldn't afford tuition this next school year, so I've gone back to homeschooling!). |
