Does anyone have experience using Singapore Math for their kids? If so what do you think?

Would it be to difficult for a child who will be going into the third grade to grasp ,after being taught standard math rules?

From comments I've seen, most people who use it, like it, especially if math isn't a subject that comes easily to their children. Here's a recent discussion about it:

Traditional math, okay; investigations math, avoid at all cost; Singapore math highly rated by professionals in math, engineering and science. Go to, you can read reviews of teaching methods. Singapore was recommended to me by a math professor at Western Michigan University, who did not find the public school offering solid enough for his sons. I used Singapore to counteract the math taught to my child in school. It is a different approach, but it is logical, provides enough practice and shows clearly how the work should be done. I highly recommend it.
