Question for Singapore Math users?

This will be our first year using Singapore Math - I'm using it with a kindergartener, first grader, an fourth grader. 

I'm just curious how most people go about doing the assignments - like 1 exercise per day, or a certain # of pages, or...? It's not totally clear to me how to divy it up into 180 days.

 This will be our second year of using Singapore math and DD will be starting 4th grade in August. We do one lesson a day.

 I really like Singapore math. It is very challenging, forces my DD to use critical thinking skills and mental math. S. is mastery. At the end of every unit, there is a cumulative test A & B. There are the Home Instructor Guides (if you want them for more explanations & enrichment activities) and the Textbooks. The HIGs have the answers for the workbooks throughout them (I'm assuming B/F third grade is this way). There are the workbooks, TESTS, Extra Practice, and Challenging Word Problems. We have used the Standards Edition.

They have a placement test over on the Singapore Math site. Definitely very helpful. I buy SM over on Rainbow Resource Center, as it is a little cheaper there.
