    Which Math after 6th grade?

    The curriculum packages go through 6th grade and use Rod and Staff. What is recommended to use after that and later for Algebra?

    I just found this board, so sorry if it has been asked before. Thanks!

    Math After 6th Grade Rod & Staff

    Hi. I am not making any recommendations but I know that Singapore Mathematics is a great curriculum to look into.

      My understanding is R&S continues through 8th at which point, the books switch to the Lial/Miller books. These are the books Highland Latin School uses as per the link below. It is at the bottom of the last paragraph.

        That link is what I was looking for. Thanks. My dds have used R&S from the beginning, but we are nearing the end. I was wondering what MP would use after that.

        Thanks!

          Glad I could help. I do wonder if those are the same books that will be incorporated into the grade level packages.

          I am hearing scary things about kids not ready for 'modern' standards Algebra, not able to move into grade level math when applying to private schools or failing when taking placement/standardized testing after completing levels of R&S. It has been suggested to me that I move mine to something like Christian Light Education Math instead.

          I did see on www.rodandstaffbooks.com that they are issuing a 3rd edition that seems more up-to-date as far as Math Standards go. (i.e. place value is explained without the animals, new topics, no duckies etc.) They only have First grade done and I have no idea how long it will be until other grades are released.
          There is a link to a page explaining the differences in the new edition.

          http://www.rodandstaffbooks.com/item/1-131--/?list=Mathematics_for_Christian_Living_Series

          Anyone have more information or can explain better the rational behind R&S? I want a traditional program that is age appropriate, but I have math/science guys. I do not want them to be behind later. Does that make sense? I am just so happy MP/HLS does not use Saxon!

            Hello.

            For pre-algebra this year, instead of R&S 7th grade, we are using a book from the College of the Redwoods. The ISBN is 58000453442047, and it can be purchased for $20. I don't know yet how the teachers like it, but I thought I'd throw it out there. This is what they chose after looking at lots of textbooks. I suppose we'll know by spring if it is doing what we want it to.

            Regards,

            Tanya
