There is review on 7/6 as there is in all of them, but it won't be long before new concepts are introduced which will lead in to the 8/7 book.
Personally, I would be afraid my child may be lost beginning 8/7 without completing and mastering 7/6, which could result in frustration and then having to 'back track.' I know each child moves at a different pace, but I do not think you will be disappointed if you stay on course and move forward in Saxon order.

4.9 / 5.011 Reviews5 Stars4 Stars3 Stars2 Stars1 Star101000My now 13 year old daughter has had a very bad relationship with math throughout her life We have tried so many programs (a new one every year) but she just could not seem to retain even the simple things This past year for 7th grade we gave Saxon 87 a try I am so impressed with how well she is now doing She doesn't cry when we sit down to math now and those things that she couldn't master before have become a little enjoyable for her Depending on your child's math "ability" it may not require teacher prep If your child is like my dd it still only takes minimal preparation which is awesome when you have three or more that you homeschool simultaneously It isn't very expensive compared to other programs but Rainbow Resource has great discounted prices which makes it even better Was this review helpful?

We have been using Saxon Math for the past year My sixth grade daughter placed into 7/6 at the start of our homeschooling adventure and she was very successful 8/7 was the next logical choice but I did consider some of the newer "hightech" options for math but then decided "if it isn't broke don't fix it" We went with Saxon 8/7 and could not be more pleased with the decision No its not the latest and greatest computerized curriculum but it is a solid math curriculum for arithmetic and prealgebra The setup is the same as the previous years with facts practice mental math and problem solving before each lesson The lessons are detailed and full of examples and lesson practice allows the student to try their hand at a variety of problems specific to the lesson Mixed review offers additional problems from the current lesson as well as previous lessons When problems come from previous lessons they are clearly marked which lesson they came from With the kit comes the Student text Facts practice and test book and the Solutions manual Whether you are new to Saxon or an experienced Saxon user this is the set for you!

I tried a number of math programs with my daughter beginning in second grade when I began homeschooling her She despised math at that point and did so until we found Saxon Now math is her favorite subject The program is clearly written and because it only introduces a small piece of a concept in each lesson (so that there is time to master that piece before adding another) it allows mastery of the concept without any struggle I particularly appreciate how the answer book doesn't just give the answer but shows how it was solved This is extremely helpful for homeschoolers My daughter is 11 and we just ordered our fourth Saxon book (8/7) I appreciate the discounted cost Rainbow Resource offers for this program It's worth every penny Was this review helpful?

We just opened our Rainbow Resource order box My daughter pulled out her Saxon 8/7 math book and has already started working She is able to work through it all on her own It is only August 3rdwe were not planning on starting school until September! My daughter used Saxon Math at her previous private school It is so nice to be able to order the homeschool version and have her jump right in where she left off Thank you for a wonderful item we are very pleased!

Awesome!So very pleased! I've been homeschooling for 6 years now and Math has proven to be very difficult. I have 2 children in different grades and they learn very differently. But Saxxon Math has made all the stress and intimidation go away! My children are able to set down almost on their own and do the work. It's amazing! I will be returning to Rainbow Resource for our future curricula needs. Was this review helpful? Yes (1) No (0)

1 out of 5 stars: My kids are currently using Saxon 7/6 (7th grader) and 8/7 (8th grader) I pulled them out of our public middle school because I wasn't satisfied My city is definately a year behind our suburban neighbors Saxon does have alot of review problems (called "mixed practice" from previous lessons) but my biggest issue with Saxon is that there are not enough practice lesson problems for the lesson you are learning My kids were gettting frustrated because they never really felt that they were mastering a new skill before having to practice problems from previous lessons Also there is no organization in Saxon There are no chapters It skips around quite a bit My kids were expected to use knowledge of something on a lesson and became frustrated because they hadn't yet been taught that skill and then it ended up being taught 5 lessons later I'm so fed up with Saxon Maybe it would be fine if I had been homeschooling all along and started early on with Saxon but for us there were too many gaps We are in the process of switching our math curriculum (and also our grammar since we have been using Hake grammar and have the same issues) I will have to play "catch up" and try to teach 2 years worth of math in less than a year so that my kids won't be behind when they go to charter school for high school I was so excited to start using Saxon and Hake and those are the only 2 curriculums that I am disappointed with Was this review helpful?

Vote for the best answer above!are there additional materials required for this math program?A shopper on Dec 10, 2015BEST ANSWER: No, but you can use less or more resources as you choose. The DIVE dvd's (sold separately from Saxon) are good resources if you want your child to watch a video of a professor teaching the new concepts (about 15 minutes per lesson) but they are not necessary. Using Saxon, in my opinion, can be tailored to the student, if they need repetitive, thorough progress to absorb math concepts, then do every problem at a steady pace. If they get bored easily this way, they need to move through the material more quickly or might benefit from supplemental math study. Saxon's strength is ALL the concepts needed, presented in the order that builds a strong foundation for the next math level. But it can be plodding and slow for the voracious math learner (IMHO) Reply

This homeschool kit has all you need  the text book, tests & worksheets, and solutions manual. I am not aware of a separate teacher edition, unless you are referring to the teacher CD. I taught this course without the teacher CD and am not familiar with it so I can't provide any insight on the CD. Reply

The first 80 lessons are mostly all review. Algebra concepts are introduced in the last 40 lessons.
It sounds as though Math 87 would be a good course for your child. Reply

If you child has successfully mastered Saxon 8/7, then Saxon Algebra 1/2 is the next step before Saxon Algebra 1. Reply

Vote for the best answer above!My son just finished 6/5 with no problems. I've been told the 7/6 has a lot of review. Is it too big of a jump to go from 6/5 to 8/7?User on Aug 9, 2017BEST ANSWER: I have used the Saxon Math homeschooling program for the last 16 years and I would never skip a book.
There is review on 7/6 as there is in all of them, but it won't be long before new concepts are introduced which will lead in to the 8/7 book.
Personally, I would be afraid my child may be lost beginning 8/7 without completing and mastering 7/6, which could result in frustration and then having to 'back track.' I know each child moves at a different pace, but I do not think you will be disappointed if you stay on course and move forward in Saxon order. Reply

My daughter found the first 90 lessons to be review but the last 30 lessons were a lot of new stuff. I had her go through 7/6 two lessons at a time. She would do two new concepts and lesson practices each day but just one mixed practice. She did every test and investigation. When she got to the final 30 lessons, she had to slow down and just do one lesson a day otherwise it was too overwhelming and she wasn't getting enough practice on the new concepts. Reply(1)

Vote for the best answer above!My son has just finished 6/5 and had no problems. I've been told that 7/6 has a lot of review. I don't want to buy a whole set if there is tons of review. Is going to 8/7 too big of a jump from 6/5? Is there a lot of review in 8/7 of 7/6?A shopper on Aug 9, 2017BEST ANSWER: All Saxon has a lot of review. The usual jump year is after 8/7 to Algebra 1. I would get 7/6, and give him tests at where you think he's at. When he makes enough errors, say, 3...then jump start him in the book there. If he finishes early, due to starting further on in the book, just have him start on the next book. Having done Saxon 1/2 after 8/7, I would just skip that and go straight to Algebra 1. Mine was good at Math, but made careless mistakes, so I made him do it for honing his computation accuracy. That's the one that has the most rehashing. It has the pre algebra review, but nothing they can't pick up in straight Algebra 1. All Saxons start out with the rehash...it's just the way it is. I like it for that. Summer kills their brain cells  in a therapeutic way...but often they need that refresher, just not always as much as the book begins with. Reply

I would have him take the assessment and see how he does. If you are familiar with Saxon they do a great job of the review that you are mentioning. That's why so many people use it. I have heard of others going through and skimming Algebra 1/2 when they get there. You could also scale the assignments and do those that are new. Hope this helps. Another thing I would look at is how good is he at his facts. Without which I wouldn't move forward. Reply
