I notice that a lot of people that are doing a classical style education with their kids do Singapore math. I'm under the impression that you do this, too. I am currently doing Right Start math with the abacus. I am having some serious trouble with this. The instructions are so complicated. I wish I could show you their instructions for telling time. It's so complicated that I get overwhelmed and then don't want to do math at all and here we are just teaching telling time. I often stall and stall and stall and we end up a couple of weeks behind. Much of what Ella is good at in Math is because Del gets a hold of her once a month and drills it in. Somehow he just gets it and doesn't need any sort of instruction on how one teaches math. I feel like I'm drowning. AND ITS JUST TELLING TIME!!!
What is it about Singapore math that you like? Where can I get a sample of it?
