There is a lot of review. There are typically 30 review problems per lesson once you pass Math 3. However, concepts are built upon in the review problems. Creativity is required in the review questions to solve problems that are similar, but not exactly the same as concepts previously presented. A piece of information may be missing that you are expected to figure out how to calculate. On high school math team, this is exactly what we were required to do at a tournament. Only students use those skills every day with this curriculum! It is challenging and rigorous.
For this reason, it may not work with all learning styles. If a child needs to repeat the exact same kind of problem over and over to learn all the steps involved, or if they have a hard time learning multiple concepts per lesson, they will have a hard time with this curriculum. Many lessons in Algebra 1/2 present multiple concepts, but they all fit together intuitively. There are typically only 4 to 8 problems practicing these new concepts per lesson. Supplemental practice is available on selected concepts in the back of the book from Levels 54 to 76. No supplemental practice in Algebra 1/2. I don't know about 87.
If there is a downside to this curriculum, it is that it is quite timeconsuming. This is has been consistently true through all the levels. Levels 13 require a lot of teacher time. 54 to 76 move the time burden to the student. For me, time spent doing this kind of math is fun and well worth it. In my opinion, if you want to train an engineer, this is your choice for math curriculum.

The more affordable option would be to buy 1 workbook and have a notebook for each student where they could just answer the questions from the workbook. And buy 1 test booklet and just make copies for the warmups and tests.
I hope this helps.

Rigorous, yet intuitive. I love Saxon!I have used all levels of Saxon from grade 1. We are now in Algebra 1. I love the way concepts are presented in an intuitive way, where one skill leads into the next. For example, skip counting by 5s leads directly to telling time, and counting nickels & $5 bills. A student already knows the basis for what they are about to learn through concepts previously presented. This is why integration with geometry makes so much sense. Once you know how to multiply 2 numbers, you can calculate the area of a rectangle. I wish I had learned math this way! It is not your traditional math.
There is a lot of review. There are typically 30 review problems per lesson once you pass Math 3. However, concepts are built upon in the review problems. Creativity is required in the review questions to solve problems that are similar, but not exactly the same as concepts previously presented. A piece of information may be missing that you are expected to figure out how to calculate. On high school math team, this is exactly what we were required to do at a tournament. Only students use those skills every day with this curriculum! It is challenging and rigorous.

Lots of practice!We have been using Saxon Math since 2011 consistently. The most important task for any curriculum, I have learned, is to figure out your child's needs. In order to achieve mastery, my one child needs a lot of practice; my other child doesn't need as much. Saxon has A LOT of practice so I've had to tailor it to my one child who doesn't need as much practice. Saxon isn't colorful or "fun" to look at but it has everything a student needs to master math.

Very Good Math CurriculumI would recommend this to parents who wish to give their students a comprehensive, Common Core free math education. I enjoy how Saxon reviews and builds on simple concepts in order to teach concepts that are more complex. The way Saxon explains the lesson makes it fairly easy to teach. Was this review helpful?

Saxon is not the program that I thought would be a good fit for my twins now 10 They are both fairly creative learners active and what I had always heard about Saxon Math was that it is "drill and kill" and repetitivein short it seemed exactly not the way I saw my children learning I have been very pleasantly surprised with just how well Saxon has met our needs and how eager my boys are to do the work For Kmiddle of 3rd grade we had used a combination of programs: primarily MathUSee supplemented with Singapore Math and DK workbooks I've never been a singlecurriculum user; I tend to use most materials as "resources" more than a single program to meet all of our needs I was very happy with what we did in those early years but what motivated me to try Saxon was wanting to cover more areas of math to better prepare for testing in the middle grades The spiraling approach was appealing to me I'm now using Saxon 1 with my 1st grader and it's a better fit for her than it would have been for her older brothers She enjoys the many drawing activities ("There were 5 turkey sandwiches on the picnic table and 3 peanut butter sandwiches Draw a picture and write a number sentence to tell how many sandwiches were on the table altogether") whereas they would have felt overwhelmed by the amount of pencil work involved My daughter looks forward to the varied activities for each day As the parent I do find that Saxon at those early levels (up to 2 or 3) does require more involvement from me and is simply more timeconsuming if you choose to do many of the daily activities like calendar work writing the date charting the temperature My daughter loves this stuff but I'll admit some days it just makes me tired and I long for the simplicity of the other math curricula I've used!What my 5/4 and 6/5 children like about Saxon is that it is straightforward It's no frills (though I think many of the word problems are rather creative and fun!) They wake up each morning and know exactly what they need to do and this routine is comforting They both approach math in different ways One of my twins is much more confident about his math abilities and he has liked Saxon because there is such a variety of problems that he doesn't get bored doing the same concept over and over day after day His brother has seen his confidence grow because things move in this program at a manageable pace And I have been pleased because I feel that Saxon prepares them well for testing It is more tied to standards than some of the other programs we've used and I don't approach testing time wondering if we should have taken some time to at least acquaint ourselves with probability or some other topic that may not have been covered in some of the masterybased singletopic programsWith all that said I am still supplementing Saxon a bitthrowing in a bit of MathUSee for some extra practice on some concepts (fractions for example) and I'm also having them use some of the "Key To" series to reinforce some things But overall Saxon has definitely surprised us in that it turned math into a confident nomoretears situation and into a subject that my boys want to now do first It feels right on for poising us well to be prepared for moving into prealgebra and after researching other curricula as they have finished their Saxon book I see by looking at placement tests for other programs that they are might even be able to skip some levels of other programs based on how wellprepared they have been from using the middlegrade saxon books Was this review helpful?

I am currently using Saxon 65 with both my 5th grade level son and 6th grade level daughter Each day we start our math lesson by setting the timer and doing the drill worksheets The children compete with each other to get the best times We then do the warmup exercises and go over the lesson The children then complete the mixed practice on their own I love how Saxon is both student friendly and teacher friendly I appreciate that skills learned in previous lessons continue to be included in subsequent lessons For years I have been afraid to use Saxon because I have heard remarks from others that Saxon was too repetitive and boring I asked my children if they liked Saxon better than the other math curriculums we have used they emphatically stated that they did I asked how they felt about doing the same drill sheets over and over and was told "It helps us memorize the math facts better!"

The lessons are easy to follow and the practice questions are applicable.

While there might be some accidental alignment in terms of topics, Saxon Math 65 was published in 2004  long before Common Core and makes no claims to being aligned with CCSS. Reply

Vote for the best answer above!I used Saxon Math 5/4 for my fourth graders last year. Is Saxon Math 6/5 next or should I use Saxon math 5 intermediate?User on Aug 20, 2016BEST ANSWER: We have been using Saxon for a few years now and have gone straight from 5/4 to 6/5. Saxon does have a placement test on their website that is very helpful for determining which text is most appropriate. Reply

It would be Saxon 6/5. 5 Intermediate is used more in a class (school setting) and 6/5 is more of a homeschool resource, Reply

Vote for the best answer above!I will be teaching triplet boys do I need to get three student workbooks and three consumable tests and worksheet books or could I make copies?User on Jul 31, 2016BEST ANSWER: You can make copies but in the end it would be super expensive.
The more affordable option would be to buy 1 workbook and have a notebook for each student where they could just answer the questions from the workbook. And buy 1 test booklet and just make copies for the warmups and tests.
I hope this helps. Reply

personally i would buy 3 students texts but maybe only one test book bc it's much smaller, therefore not as costly to copy. it would cost far more to photocopy the student texts than to buy the workbooks. Reply

You can make copies, although it would be a lot of work to make copies of the workbook. I would make copies of the test as they occur less often and are not as many questions. Reply

You could make copies, but I have always bought the extra consumable books. The time saved outweighs the cost in my experience. Reply

Vote for the best answer above!I will be teaching triplet boys do I need to get three student workbooks and three consumable tests and worksheet books or could I make copies?A shopper on Jul 31, 2016BEST ANSWER: From the copyright info in the books, it is my understanding that the company would like for you to have one for each student. At that age, I just made each of my girls do the work in a notebook, leaving the books unmarked for the next student. However, my 3 weren't all working in the same book at the same time. If I remember correctly, there are less than 30 tests, which wouldn't be too much to make copies of, but there is at least 1 worksheet for every lesson, which is a lot to copy. Hope this helps!!

I would suggest getting one homeschool kit and two additional student workbooks. This way you have the solutions manual and then can make copies of the worksheets and tests for your boys when necessary. I believe they would all benefit from having their own workbook as you may find that they may work at a different pace and you would be photocopying most of it so save your time for other things. Your money will be well spent as Saxon is the best mathematics curriculum. Reply

To share a student workbook would be like sharing a textbook. It all of the problems in it, but students do all of their writing on another piece of paper. I would recommend ordering 3 consumable tests and worksheet books or you will have to copy every single page in the book. Reply

You definitely can make copies, but it's a big book. If you have your own copy machine than I would consider coping the book since you need 3...if you need to make copies elsewhere then I would just buy the books. Reply

I Have 3 children of different ages. We made copies so we could use the books for each child as they reached that math level. If all are taking at the same time, you can easily make copies and teach them together. Reply

Vote for the best answer above!I will be teaching triplet boys do I need to get three student workbooks and three test and worksheets workbooks or can I make copy's and pass them out?A shopper on Jul 31, 2016BEST ANSWER: I love the Saxton Math homeschool kits. The kit I order comes with the math book, solutions manual, and test book. I have my children write the answers to the questions in each lesson in a graph paper notebook, and with the tests they write answers on a sheet of paper to be filled. This allows me to use one math kit for the family. Reply

You can definitely make copies. If it were me I would take the book apart and punch holes for a 3 ring binder. The binding is glued and doesn't lay super flat. Reply

Either buy three workbooks or make copies. Buying the extra workbooks would be less work and probably comparable in price:) Reply
