My 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

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 "high-tech" 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 pre-algebra The set-up 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

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 3rd--we 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.

My daughter is in the last lessons of Saxon Math 7/6. We will continue with this program because it is a good approach to math. Some lessons are easier than others but it always recycles learned concepts so daughter gets a lot of practice. Very complete. Even though it takes my daughter 1 hour or sometimes more than that to complete a lesson, it is worth it. Even she says that!

Katherine H on Mar 24, 2017
I've been using Saxon Math for my child for the last year. It has worked phenomenally well. This is a spiral curriculum which means that there is a small lesson on new topics with limited practice, then mixed review for each lesson. The daily facts practice has encouraged my child's recognition and memorization of math facts. If your child is struggling with math, I strongly recommend this curriculum for the struggling and on target learners both.
Michelle W on Mar 22, 2017
Have been using Saxon prior and love the program for my daughter
Susan D on Feb 14, 2017
Saxon math is awesome. people don't like it because it's repetitive but for math that's what they need. We do odd problems on odd lessons and even on even lessons. the tests come every 5 lessons so you can really track your child's progress and understanding.

I've used Saxon Math products since my oldest son, now 38, was in 3rd grade. The instructions are clear and to the point, and each lesson contains more than enough problem repetition and adequate review. It's a great product for average to above average students. Of my six children, only one needed another math program.

Rebecca M on Oct 8, 2017
Is this a paperback edition?
A shopper on Oct 17, 2015
BEST ANSWER: All of the pieces in the homeschool kit are softbound. We have found them to be durable. Check out the Saxon Teacher dvds for extra help. They show every problem in the book worked out on a whiteboard. ??
are there additional materials required for this math program?
A shopper on Dec 10, 2015
BEST 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)
What year was this edition published?
User on Feb 17, 2016
BEST ANSWER: All three books in our kit have a 2005 copyright.
Do you need to purchase a teacher edition seperatly?
A shopper on Aug 28, 2017
BEST ANSWER: There is no Teacher Edition for the Saxon Math 8/7 3ED level. The level consists of only a Student Textbook, Solutions Manual, and Tests & Worksheets book. The student teaches himself by reading the daily lesson in the Student Textbook. Answers can be checked in Solutions Manual. Tests and timed drills are in the Tests & Worksheets book.
My child is 14 and need a review of the basic math. Which book will cover important concepts needed before Agebra I?
A shopper on Aug 31, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Math 87 starts with a complete review of all basic math concepts - addition, subtraction, multiplication, division, fractions, decimals, and percents. 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.
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, 2017
BEST 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.
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, 2017
BEST 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.

    My experience shows that it works well, especially for children who struggle with math. It provides a good grounding. It may, however, be too repetitive for children who are naturally good at math.

    Ready to move up in Saxon Math.

    I've used Saxon Math products since my oldest son, now 38, was in 3rd grade. The instructions are clear and to the point, and each lesson contains more than enough problem repetition and adequate review. It's a great product for average to above average students. Of my six children, only one needed another math program.

    This too was highly recommended.

    I purchased Saxon Math 8/7 because 7/6 worked so well last year!

    My son just completed Saxon 76 so this is the next logical book. It will provide great review, I believe, and keep him moving forward toward Algebra.

    This is my 3rd year using Saxon for homeschooling and I really like it.

    Is this a paperback edition?
    A shopper on Oct 17, 2015
    BEST ANSWER: All of the pieces in the homeschool kit are softbound. We have found them to be durable. Check out the Saxon Teacher dvds for extra help. They show every problem in the book worked out on a whiteboard. ??
    are there additional materials required for this math program?
    A shopper on Dec 10, 2015
    BEST 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)
    What year was this edition published?
    User on Feb 17, 2016
    BEST ANSWER: All three books in our kit have a 2005 copyright.
    Do you need to purchase a teacher edition seperatly?
    A shopper on Aug 28, 2017
    BEST ANSWER: There is no Teacher Edition for the Saxon Math 8/7 3ED level. The level consists of only a Student Textbook, Solutions Manual, and Tests & Worksheets book. The student teaches himself by reading the daily lesson in the Student Textbook. Answers can be checked in Solutions Manual. Tests and timed drills are in the Tests & Worksheets book.
    My child is 14 and need a review of the basic math. Which book will cover important concepts needed before Agebra I?
    A shopper on Aug 31, 2017
    BEST ANSWER: Math 87 starts with a complete review of all basic math concepts - addition, subtraction, multiplication, division, fractions, decimals, and percents. 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.
    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, 2017
    BEST 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.
    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, 2017
    BEST 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.
