This is great so far! I homeschool my 1st grader and we're loving it. It starts out a little bit easy for him, but that's a good thing since we need the review after the summer. I highly recommend this math program!

an appealing approach to first math
This go-through will be my second time in this workbook, with my second son. The Singapore approach to math is refreshing and uncluttered--concrete to pictorial to abstract overall, with the workbook used for the latter two stages. The pictures are very endearing and age-appropriate, and for what could be very repetitive activities at this level there are instead a variety of attractive exercises that my kids have loved. It's nice to be able to take things at our own pace, too--we can practice more on our own if needed. To accompany the workbook, I purchased the textbook years ago (for the first son), and I've also benefitted from the home instructor's guide (especially for first getting to understand the Singapore approach to lessons--for the textbook and workbook are pretty sparse on instructions and goals!).

Very Good
We are using this with our son. It is challenging, but thorough and effective. He really understands math and mental math at that! I think we will be using this for the long haul.

Not only have I been impressed by how quickly my son has picked up math using Singapore but my extended family is amazed He has enjoyed doing the mental exercises in his head and loves solving problems given by his grandparents Singapore Math uses a natural progression toward learning new concepts The sequencing has been easy to understand and follow I wish this math program had been around when I was in school It has me hooked! The cost is minimal and the preparation is easy It's wonderful for kids who dislike writing every step out on paper Singapore math is my son's favorite subject

We tried everything and my son still hated math Then we found Singapore He actually asks to do math lessons now We are hooked!

I have used both Saxon and Singapore for first grade math and much prefer Singapore although we will continue doing some parts of Saxon However we did find the Singapore textbook and workbook need to be supplemented with extra problems about halfway through (when students are starting to do addition with numbers up to 20) The Extra Practice problems are good; there are just not enough of them That's why I ordered the intensive practice books also I would not recommend the Challenging Word Problems books which I feel are misnamed - at least at the 1 level They are wordy but not challenging For the most part the student need not read the problem If he sees a 7 and a 2 in the section on addition he knows the answer is 9 and in the subtraction section 5 without reading the problem In other words they aren't really word problems just arithmetic drills with references to kids' names and papayas tops and other countable objects

After completing Saxon Math with my daughter for first grade and wanting a change I bought Miquon and Singapore Primary Mathematics (Singapore version) The Singapore version did not bother me since I am Asian myself My daughter LOVES Singapore Math and I do too! She does not like too many problems on one page nor too much repetition of the same thing so Singapore Math works well for her

Fun to use and excellent content. Complements Ray's Primary Arithmetic (or rather vice versa).

We used this program with our older son and it gave him a lot of math sense. I wish I had done the all those games. Now I have a second chance with my second child.

We've been using Primary Math for the lower grades for about three years now. It's just fun enough and hard enough to keep math interesting.
Hannah H on Aug 27, 2018
Used with several other sons, want to see if it is a good fit for this one.
Amy M on Aug 18, 2018
Singapore math has worked great for my older children up through 4th grade. I'm looking forward to trying it out with my younger children.

Hoping this will be a good match for my son.
Kristen H on Jul 23, 2018
I appreciate the illustrations and clear concepts.

I used primary mathematics for kindergarten and we liked it.
Dori C on Jul 8, 2018
Easy to follow, logical progression.
David M on Jun 23, 2018
We have used Singapore for all six of our children from the beginning of kindergarten. I have found it to lay an excellent foundation for mathematical reasoning with a strong emphasis on word problems. This curriculum is straightforward and easy to use. I appreciate their progression from concrete to pictoral to abstract. This method has worked well for all of my different learners.

Starting to teach my next son the same curriculum and needed a workbook
Kenneth R on Mar 9, 2017
It was recommended by a trusted friend who has had success with this series and my daughter did well with the kindergarten level.

We love Singapore Math!
Cathy H on Sep 19, 2016
Our 1A workbook was involved in an accident at home. Sadly it did not survive. In order to complete the 1A work we need to purchase a new 1A workbook. Our previous 1A workbook served us well and will be missed. At least by me, the student is enjoying a short break from math.
Sara B on Sep 19, 2016
highly recommended, colorful
Latasha Q on Sep 4, 2016
This program suits my teaching style and my children enjoy it. The older ones can often figure out the lessons for themselves. Older children who have only completed half of level 5 still were able to test into pre-algebra or algebra I when entering public school.

I do have to supplement with math fact drills, and I add in the Key to... series for fractions, decimals, measurements, and percents to ensure mastery.
Malynda A on Aug 29, 2016
Trying something different, loved Rightstart but with multiple kids it takes too long and is very teacher dependent. Need to teach math simply and effectively. We'll see if this is the way for us.
Mia C on Aug 25, 2016
I have used it with other children and have been satisfied.
Rachel S on Aug 22, 2016
We've been using Singapore for my older dd, age 8, for 2 years now and as a math-minded parent, I love it. My daughter has struggled with portions, but I don't think that was the fault of the curriculum. She just takes longer to grasp certain concepts. My ds, finished the Kinder Math A & B, and loved them, so I think 1A & B will be a great fit for him as well. I love the extra practice books that are also available.

My son no longer likes to do Mathseeds and prefers to do the Primary Math textbooks. I want to supplement his math with the Primary Math workbooks.

These are my favorite math books.

To go along with the textbook I have.

My older kids and I love Singapore Math for grades 2-5, I'm excited to try out 1A for my Kindergartener!
Meagan F on Mar 29, 2016
I homeschool and have used Singapore math for 5 years and 4 different children. I love the way they present the "why" instead of just the "how" of math.
