algebra 1
we used Saxon algebra for 9th and part of 10th. My son really likes it. He is pretty strong in his mathematical abilities though. He preferences figuring problems out on his own and then referencing with the text in most cases, unless he is really stumped. He enjoys a challenge. I found the course to be just that, challenging the course provides a lot of practice. The presentation is basic and the Cd's are useful. If you have a student with a relatively strong math foundation, I would recommend this course.

*highly* recommend the cd rom!!
We have used Saxon for junior high and it went fine except for a few bumps (Which Ina,ways contributed to my lack of math enthusiasm). The cd rom for this coarse has been terrific for my daughter. She consistently scores 95100% on her tests. No tears. No dreading doing Algebra. She loves it. She's actually tutored a friend. We will continue with saxon math & cd instruction for the rest of her high school career.

Thorough Curriculum
I am really impressed with this curriculum. I like the repetition of skills. The Teacher DVD allows my daughter to be more independent with her math lessons. Unfortunately, it's a little intense for my dyslexic learner, so we will be switching to a different curriculum for next year.

Yes, Algebra 1/2 is the next course after 8/7  however, I did not ever use Algebra 1/2  if your student does well in 8/7, I would go directly to Algebra 1. Algebra 1/2 is more of a review of 8/7. There is really no need to use the "in between course"  unless, of course, your student could use the extra review.

If your student needs extra practice before going on to Algebra 1, then use Algebra 1/2 after 8/7. From what I understand, both Saxon 8/7 and Algebra 1/2 prepare the student for Algebra 1. Each textbook uses a bit different approach. If you Google your question, you will get additional information on this topic.

BEST ANSWER: The teacher cdrom teaches each lesson word for word from the book. The dive cd teaches each lesson with unique problems, so you can always go to the lesson and read it for further practice.

I would like to say that if you use the Dive you will need the Solutions Guide. I have used the Teacher CD's more than the Dive and have more success with the Teacher CD's than the Dive. Dive is wonderful but you will spend more money in the long run if you find the need for the solutions. For Algebra I would definitely use the Teacher CD's.

I would like to say that if you use the Dive you will need the Solutions Guide. I have used the Teacher CD's more than the Dive and have more success with the Teacher CD's than the Dive. Dive is wonderful but you will spend more money in the long run if you find the need for the solutions. For Algebra I would definitely use the Teacher CD's. Reply
