Saxon Algebra 2I absolutely love the way this book is designed. Lessons well laid out in small, easily understood pieces. Consistent practise of lessons throughout ensures techniques become well learned and established in your mind. Testing materials provided with a schedule. I was not familiar with "spiral learning" before but was following that technique and am convinced it is the best way to learn and build your knowledge. Was this review helpful? Yes (0) No (0)

answer book doesn't "show the work"The books are great  we love Saxon. However, this answer book doesn't show how they got the correct answer  which we are definitely missing!!

I am not only teaching my children math I am studying math myself to prepare to add math as a second teaching field So I have looked at a lot of different math books Saxon does an excellent job of explaining mathematical concepts Their explanations are in English not mired in difficult mathematical terminologyNevertheless be sure to get the solution manual! You need the answer to every problem and sometimes you need to see how they got that answer The textbook is so thick because it has more explanations and illustrations than other texts I always wondered how to teach stated problems You explain the problem to the student and he understands it but still can't do the next stated problem Saxon teaches the student step by step how to solve various kinds of stated problems For example they teach you how to solve boat in the river problems and give helpful hints like telling you to put all the information in a box Each lesson for a while you have another boat in the river problem Then comes the lesson when they teach you how to solve harder boat in the river problems They also teach you how to solve abstract equations You end up with answers like RT=12 At the time you wonder what purpose this has but later you solve stated problems which put this knowledge to use Saxon thus leads you step by step to solve complex stated problems Some concepts such as ideal gas laws and chemical mixture problems are taught much better here than in our chemistry book In chemistry you also have to convert units and check your units to make sure you correctly solved the problem Saxon has been teaching unit conversion in previous books and continues here This book also covers force vectors and does a much better job than our physics book I think this course prepares you well for the types of problems you encounter on the SAT too My only complaint would be that there are not enough problems on the new topic that is introduced each lesson My answer to that is to work all the examples in the current lesson and to go ahead a few lessons to work similar problems in the next several lessons (Like all the boat in the river problems for the next 3 lessons) Saxon also teaches the wise use of the calculator not for every problem but for pi logarithms sine and cosine etc I think it is a great value and have personally not found anything objectionable in the book Was this review helpful?

While we opted for a graphing calculator, TI84, with the expectation of higher math classes in the future, my son says he doesnâ€™t recall using the graphing function for Algebra 2 and that a regular scientific calculator should work. However, he did say being able to use it for the complex fractions and such was very convenient.

Vote for the best answer above!Why is geometry included in algebra 2?uA shopper on Jul 25, 2016BEST ANSWER: Good question...and one I've asked a number of people myself. I understand that Saxon has always included geometry within their algebra 1, algebra 2, and advanced math curriculum. Only recently did they create a designated geometry book, and to meet the demand for such. According to a friend who has taught math for 20+ years, several of those years using Saxon's high school curriculum, the geometry book is redundant and unnecessary for students who have taken Saxon's algebra 1, algebra 2, and advanced math, as geometry is covered comprehensively in these three books. That said, if you need a fourth year of math and don't want to dive into calculus, a designated geometry class might be a good option. Other options would be statistics, personal finance, or any number of online classes offered by the Federal Reserve. Hope this helps! Reply

Saxon Geometry Homeschool Kit w/ Solutn ManlSaxon Advanced Math 2ED Student Text OnlySaxon Algebra 1 Student Text Only 3EDSaxon Algebra 2 Student Text Only 3EDSaxon Algebra I and Algebra 2 (3d edition) both contain geometry. If your student completes both of these, he can receive 3 credits: one for Algebra I, Algebra 2, and Geometry. You will not need to do a separate geometry curriculum. From what I understand, geometry was never supposed to be a separate subject; it was always meant to be integrated into algebra. This is why Saxon (3rd edition) includes it.
Beware of more recent editions. They may not include geometry. Reply

I believe until recently Saxon didn't have a separate Geometry course. It was combined in their Algebra 1, 2, and Advanced math courses. I find this was really helpful for my high school students who are preparing for the ACT. The ACT (and other collegeentrance exams) have mixed problems of Algebra, Geometry and Trig. Having Geometry included in the Algebra 2 text for my daughter's junior year really helped prepare her for the exam. Reply

Saxon Math Program continually spirals through previous concepts and new. Many Algebra concepts are solved using Geometry concepts, i.e. knowing complimentary angles or opposite angles in order to solve an algebraic system through substitution or elimination. Reply

Vote for the best answer above!Is this paperback or hardback? I have 5 students that need to get through this book before it's destroyed!A shopper on Mar 30, 2016BEST ANSWER: The textbook itself is a very good quality hard back book. The other two booklets are thin and will need care to last. Having said that, we have 15 students using this book set, so it works fine! Reply

The materials we received when we ordered this included a hardback student text (the red/blue book) w/paperback tests and solutions manuals (grey books). Reply

It's hardback. We're very satisfied with it so far. We'll use it again next year as we used Algebra 1 a second time this year. Reply

Vote for the best answer above!How many lessons are in this book, Saxon Algebra 2 3rd edition?A shopper on Jan 17, 2016BEST ANSWER: There are 129 lessons, which breaks down roughly to 4 lesson per week and a test. Adhering to that schedule gives you a 30 week math course which goes from Sept. to the middle of May. It's rigid, but I find my son does much better with the deadlines imposed. It keeps him on track. I like Saxon because review is built into every lesson, which prevents him from losing the previous concepts learned. The format is very logical, and gives the schedule for when tests should be taken. I figure 1 1/2 hours per day on Math, except the test day. Hope this helps. Reply
