04 Jul 2005 - 23:08 Lone Ranger just left this report on her daughter's progress using Singapore Math:
I started homeschooling my daughter in August 2004. She had been in public school since kindergarten and was a rising 4th grader when we started homeschooling. She had suffered through 3 years of "Math Their Way" and then 1 year of "Everyday Math" before I woke up to the fact that she was not learning math well. Her third grade test scores showed her to be working at the 50% in math. Well, after one year of homeschooling using only Singapore Math Levels 2B- half of 4A and supplementing with Singapore Math's Intensive Practice her total math score on the Iowa Test of Basic skills is now at the 99%!! More importantly her confidence, fluency, and ability to work through difficult problems have gone through the ceiling as well. Happy 4th of July - Lone Ranger
Congratulations! That is incredible. Your daughter has moved from the 50 percentile to the 99th in 11 months. Incredible. Good work!

Wow! Congratulations! This really is the kind of story I need to reassure me that I'm doing the right thing. It doesn't get any better than that. -- SusanS - 04 Jul 2005
No kidding. This really made my day. -- CatherineJohnson - 04 Jul 2005
As 'bold' as I can be with all this stuff, it really is harrowing. What do I know, anyway? I often feel like it's A Wing and A Prayer around here. -- CatherineJohnson - 04 Jul 2005
Lone Ranger, You realize now that you're going to have to register under the nickname LoneRanger. It was meant to be. -- CarolynJohnston - 05 Jul 2005
