Saxon Algebra 1 4th Ed (without Geometry)
The 4th Editions of Algebra 1 and Algebra 2 are intended primarily for students who plan on taking Saxon Geometry and are wanting Algebra 1 and Algebra 2 courses with reduced geometry content. The sequence for incorporating these courses would be: Algebra 1, Geometry, then Algebra 2. The main difference between the 3rd and 4th editions is that much of the previously-integrated geometry content has been removed. You may find this a positive or a negative, depending on your student's need to review geometry concepts, especially in Algebra 2 (or pre-ACT!). Another difference is that there are no step-by-step solutions for the test problems except on the Saxon Teacher CD-ROMs. At this point, Saxon is not recommending that most homeschoolers switch to the 4th editions. Homeschool Kits for the 4th Ed. courses include hardcover texts, homeschool test books (with answer key) and solutions manuals. 120 lessons. An Adaptations Workbook is now available, which provides an alternative for students with special needs. This consumable workbook contains adapted versions of the practice problems found in the student text, with plenty of space provided for working the problems in the workbook. The adapted problems offer more visual prompts and clues for doing the problems.
