Morning friends! 
Singapore Math Live
Hope your week is going great! Have you already finished your school year? Or are you in the last few weeks, days? If you are looking for something to keep your children's math skills sharp over the summer I would suggest you looking into the Singapore Math Live and their Challenging Word Problems program. Word problems can be just as challenging for parents to explain as it is for students to complete; that's why I was thrilled to review Singapore Math Live - Challenging Word Problems Level 4 with McKenzie. 

We received the Challenging Word Problems Level 4 workbook as well as access to all of the online videos to accompany. The multi-step problems found in this program can help your child in their problem solving and critical thinking skills needed for daily life by using it with your current math curriculum for just 10-20 minutes a day.
 In the video course your student will watch teacher Brenda, a fellow homeschooling parent, work out all the solutions on a whiteboard. These videos hep the student see the why and how to strategize and solve the problem. If you have an older student, they can probably watch the videos by themselves as they work through the word problems. Younger students would benefit having a parent with them as they go through the videos.
 The Challenging Word Problems Level 4 workbook includes over 300 questions and covers the following topics: ~ whole numbers ~ four operations of the whole numbers ~ mental calculations ~ operations on fractions ~ decimals ~ angles ~perpendicular and parallel lines ~ tiling patterns and symmetry ~ area and perimeter ~ tables and graphs ~ volume ~ solid figures 
The math problems in the Level 4 book were just the right amount of push for McKenize. Who is my rising 7th grader. She is strong in math, but some these problems made her think and see the full process of how to get to the solution. I like that she is able to work her solutions in the actual notebook and that she has to show her work. Typically, she is able to figure out solutions in her head without showing her work. It drives me bonkers, so I like that she needs to show her work. 
 Overall, I have found that this is a great supplement to our main math curriculum. I think these videos will make a great addition to any homeschool and to help your student really master the thought process needed to work through word problems. But don’t just take my word for it! Fourteen of my CrewMates also reviewed the Challenging Word Problems Levels 1-6 so be sure to click the banner below and see what they think of the program. Math Videos
