someone was asking about upper level math, and was directed to the curriculum list . . . but it shows singapore as only through grade 6. Why? Singapore is a great secular resource for the upper grades too - which is so hard to find! Please, include singapore as grade prek-12, instead of only having 1 singapore series for grades 1-6! (even tho their website is down . . .it was up 2 hours ago lol)

ok, website back up - not prek, k-12

I've been reading up on Singapore's upper level math programs on the WTM forums. Both the New Elementary Mathematics and Discovering Mathematics programs get high marks from parents who used Primary Mathematics.

Oh, and maybe add the new Beast Academy: www.beastacademy.com (http://www.beastacademy.com/) The first two books for third grade just came out a couple of months ago. Big hit here.

good point! technically beast academy is part of Art of PRoblem Solving, so that could just change to '3 and 6-12' and change it every year as they expand :_laugh:

(we are using singapore new syllabus but its working well for us)

actually, now that i think about it - maybe there should be a sticky at the top of the 'curriculum' forum with a link to the curriculum list?

Thanks for the suggestion of Beast Academy...I hadn't heard of that one until now.
