    Thanks. I hadn't seen that. There are several topics that are covered in the K-6th SE that aren't in the US Ed. Are they maybe covered later...or not at all?

    This is a few days old, so maybe you've already gotten your answer. The Standards Edition does cover some topics that are not ever covered in the US edition... negative numbers, for example. Now, many people find that they can simply fill in additional learning on those topics, I don't think there are very many.

    Its funny, i was wondering why the upper level singapore books were covering negative numbers on a number line . . .and the most basic graphing. Mixed in with dividing fractions, as if its all at the same level. I only used singapore primary for 2 books.
