Excellent for In-depth Math Understanding for All Levels
We love the Saxon Math Series. It is a good as Singapore Math in that it develops concepts, but practices more often so people don't forget them. If you follow the older books rhat mix in Geometry into all the books starting in Kindergarten, then you can finish a year earier with the same comprehension. And, it's less foreign a concept. We have used Saxon Math since Kindergarten, but we also dabbled in Teaching Textbooks and Khan Academy for fun one summer each. Saxon was definitely far superior.

Not homeschool friendly
The answer key only has odd numbers and it states students should check each other’s work with the even number questions . This is a problem because in homeschool we don’t have “ multiple students” and it’s primarily the parents giving the test. So... I believe that should be rectified in the homeschool packet

Intensive Algebra Curriculum
This curriculum is very thorough. If you don't have a grasp on Algebra, this will be challenging to teach. My son usually doesn't have a problem understanding this curriculum because he used the Saxon Algebra 1/2 last year.

I am a die-hard Math-U-See fan and never thought I'd be even remotely tempted to try Saxon of all programs Having heard that it was tedious and had way to much busy work and being happy with Math-U-See Saxon wasn't even on the radar for me Then came Algebra 1 My son just wasn't getting it with Math-U-See After much frustration we decided to try Saxon We haven't looked back since! Saxon is a perfect fit for my son He's always been good at Math until he started Algebra He also seems to learn best by reading and the Saxon lessons are directed to the student and are extremely thorough My son has really taken off with this program and along with the Saxon Teacher CD Roms he can now do Algebra without constant input from me Being a busy homeschool mom I'm thrilled with the freedom that Saxon Math has brought to our days This program is well worth the price My son has rediscovered his confidence in his math skills and that for me is priceless!

Do not attempt to buy this without the Dive Cd that is available The DIVE was helpful but we will still take a break from this approach for Algebra II It is incremental and spiral based but there was not enough review of the NEW concepts learned in each lesson which caused frustration at my house There are over 120 lessons in this book The Dive Cd covers the example problems only not the practice or test problems

irish B on Aug 18, 2018
We have used Saxon math from 5th grade. My son is now starting 8th grade and is ready for Algebra 1. After an exhaustive search, I have decided to stick with Saxon. It's worked great for him so far, and I found out that even our local high school uses Saxon to teach Algebra 1!

My granddaughter needs to fully understand the algebraic concepts. Somehow she is able to do the math, but cannot explain whats behind the concept, which is important.

Our homeschool co-op uses it, and it works well for my daughter. She loves to read, so she reads the lessons herself and comes to me with any questions.

Am I missing something, this kit is less than purchasing the text allone? It that correct?
A shopper on Jun 7, 2019
BEST ANSWER: Yes, although it's unusual, the Saxon Homeschool Kit for Algebra 1 is LESS than the cost of the text book alone. The reason is because we sell so many of the kits we get additional discounts when we order from the publisher which we pass on to our customers.
Would this be good for a struggling student with mild learning disabilities?
A shopper on Jul 10, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Depends on the disability.Text explanations are excellent and options are: (1)lots of repetition or (2)learn concept and move on. Does have some hands on, which can help with the visual & tactile learner.
Can a student begin Saxon at the Alg. 1 level if he's never used the Saxon series before?
A shopper on Jul 10, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Absolutely. Two of my children made the switch. The format took a bit to get used to, but they persevered and after a few weeks were accustomed to the "saxon format."
Does the student solve the questions by writing the answers in the student text book or are the questions written separately on a sheet of notebook paper?
A shopper on Oct 28, 2017
BEST ANSWER: They student solves the problems on a desperate sheet of notebook paper. The textbooks are completely reusable!
Do you need the solution manual in addition to the homeschool packet?
A shopper on Jan 9, 2016
BEST ANSWER: The homeschool packet provides the answers to the problems, but doesn't show the work of getting the answer. The solutions manual contains the steps to get the answers to the problems. Even though I'm quite comfortable with algebra, it helps to have the problem worked out so that I don't have spend time working out the problems myself.
