Algebra 1

I don’t think we needed the solution manual after all. We could have saved lots of money if we did not buy the one with solution manual.

Although I spent lots of time reading other reviews before ordering this, it was disappointing. Saxon 8/7 advanced rather fast at the end, and I expected Algebra 1 would be similar in the last 1/8 of saxon 8/7 in terms of pacing. I am glad we didn’t order Algebra 1/2 as we consider it first seriously. Algebra 1 takes off really slowly with lots of reviews of 8/7. Our 6th grade is doing just fine with Algebra 1 after finishing 8/7. Also, I regret that we didn’t order the newest version because the review said that the new version moves fast without much explanations. Looking at Algebra 1, how it is pacing, we should have bought the newest version instead...in considering we really do not need too much in depth explanations for this book anyway as it is basically the same theory from 8/7. I wish there was a way to look into the first a few lessons without buying the textbook and wish there were more description of the deference between 8/7, algebra 1/2 and 1. Hope this review will help others in similar situations. Though lots of review made it sound like Algebra 1 is really hard, it is not hard at all.... not much different from prealgebra. I am confident to say that if your student is doing well- average 85% on 8/7 ( mixed practice), regardless of age (some review recommended to go for Algebra 1/2 if students are too young), skip Algebra 1/2 and go for Algebra 1. I would have gone for the newest version, not the old version.

Much more manageable

My son is really enjoying learning Algebra with Saxon. The best part is the reference number that tells you where a problem was taught.

Saxon Algebra I Homeschool Kit w/ Solutions Man./3rd Edition

I've been pleasantly surprised with using Saxon materials with my daughter. Saxon does have a lot of review and if that's what your student needs, they'll definitely get it with this curriculum.

The Saxon Alg. I HS Kit w. Solutions Manual (third edition) is extremely thorough, everything is laid out for you, and the solutions manual is great if you get a problem incorrect, and you need to find your mistake. So helpful.

While I know Saxon curriculum isn't for everyone, my student thrives with it. As of right now, we'll be continuing on through high school using these materials.

Also, to give a shout out to RRC, they make homeschooling much less stressful. I'm an accidental homeschool mom, and I feel confident knowing that I can get so many different homeschool items at one place.

As novices when we began our homeschooling journey 10 years ago we listened to the advice of a veteran homeschool mom and purchased Saxon as our Math curriculum We havenï¿½t looked back (or sideways) since She said it was a solid program built on incremental learning and constant reinforcement and thatï¿½s exactly what it is In public school good teachers can make the difference between fair to average students and students who excel Saxon is the help parents need to be good math teachers We already have the care and desire to make sure our children understand new concepts; with Saxon we can also have the ability (math majors excepted ï¿½ you already know how!) Itï¿½s all there ï¿½ lessons are written at a level your child can understand with a logical building-block approach We go over the lessons together I supervise the lesson practice to ensure theyï¿½ve understood then they work on their own for the review problems (from previous lessons ï¿½ lesson # is noted by each problem so that if there is a difficulty they can refer back to that lesson) Iï¿½ve heard many comments about there being too much review with Saxon To master anything takes constant practice; I believe Math is important enough that the practice is well worth the results I remember dreading math as a child when I didnï¿½t understand it But also the confidence (dare I even say - thrill) felt when I did From our experience beginning in Saxon Math K through the present Algebra 2 Saxon can be relied upon to eliminate the fear and instill confidence in your math students To me itï¿½s just one less thing to worry about!

Is the Teacher's Manual different from the Solutions Manual? Would I want both?

User
on Aug 28, 2016

Saxon provides two options for answers: Answer Key (which contains the test answers (with solutions) and homework answers (no solutions) and Solutions Manual (which contains homework answers (with solutions) but no test information). If you want to be able to grade the tests, then you need the Answer Key. My 3rd edition book is called 'Homeschool Packet'; I couldn't find any other title for it.) In addition, if you want step-by-step solutions for the homework (practice sets and problem sets) you will need the Solutions Manual also.
