I have used several math programs over the years including Saxon Horizons Miquon and Developmental Math during the younger years Comparing Singapore to the others I find that it is less repetitive by far and less oriented toward just rote skill use Although the books are not fancy in appearance they require creativity in problem solving Often skills are combined as multiple steps are required to solve word problems This program is very much about working with numbers and ideas together This applies especially to the challenge books which are totally word problems We use these as a supplement three different types of problems each day to add variety challenge and complex review Sometimes the problems are hard enough we may come back to them another day Fortunately there is a Singapore forum where we can cry for help if we get totally stuck Solving these problems can feel like a great accomplishment I highly recommend this program for a child who doesn't need lots of repetition and loves a challenge It really encourages complex math thinking skills We love it!
