One reason why Saxon Math is a strong choice for homeschoolers - particularly at the high school level - is the depth of support that is available. With the development of Saxon Teacher there is even more support. Available either as a 1-year digital license or as a set of CD-ROMs, this program provides comprehensive lesson instruction, worked sample problems and solutions for every lesson problem. Saxon Teacher is available for most Saxon programs from 4th grade through Advanced Math and lesson navigation is easy to use. The CD-ROM sets contain four lesson CD-ROMs and one Test CD-ROM for each course. Online courses are organized into sections for the lesson overview, practice problems and solutions. You can proceed through the problems one by one or go directly to any particular problem.
All instruction, problem-solving, and solutions are given as background voices with the accompanying steps appearing as "black-marker-writing" on the computer screen. To avoid monotony, the voices change sometimes male; sometimes female; but always pleasant. Please note that the Test CD-ROM or test online access file provides solutions for all the problems from each test. The printed Solution Manual will be redundant if you are using Saxon Teacher, as all the solutions are provided in the program and individual solutions can be printed one at a time after the solution is worked through on the screen. However, some may still prefer to have hard copy versions of all the solutions for quick reference.
We offer Saxon Teacher individually for users who already own the corresponding Saxon curriculum, or packaged with Saxon Home Study Kits for even better savings. Saxon Teacher with Home Study Kit packages include the text, tests, answer key and Saxon Teacher for that level. Please note that although some of the newer Saxon Teacher disc sets are called DVDs, they are designed to work exclusively on a computer, not a standard DVD player. System requirements: Windows XP, Vista, Windows 7, Windows 8; Mac OS 10.2 -10.4. PLEASE note that CD-ROM format also uses Adobe Flash Player, which will be unsupported at the end of 2020. To prevent an issue with this, we recommend using the digital license. ~ Janice
