Which math counts like this ??
11 "onetenone" 12 "onetentwo" If it is Singapore, which I am considering Singapore or Math Mammoth, then is this type of counting odd? When do they make the switch over to regular counting? I hear a homeschool mom say that her older daughter still wants to count like that, instead of saying "eleven, twelve". Does Math Mammoth count like this? Or is it some completely other program so I do not need to "worry" about it?? i do see the advantage of counting like that, but wondering when they say it the regular way. 
Mom to DS(8), DS(6), DD(4), and DS(1). "Kids do as well as they can."
My concern would be if then a child would never count or never want to count by actually saying "eleven, twelve, thirteen, etc" Like I said, one mom said her child still wants to count like that. But at some point, people need to know to say "eleven, twelve, thirteen, etc".
