What we needed
We've been through multiple different math curriculums with my son. He's really strong on concepts and very weak on actually being able to the math. This can be very frustrating for both of us. He also gets bored easily. The constant repetition of very small amounts of different math skills has been a good fit. He doesn't get bored or overwhelmed and doesn't forget something we've already covered because it keeps coming back. There is no way I could do the full "meeting" for every lesson but I skim through and make sure we cover the new learning plus a little review each time. The mix of manipulates helps. I anticipate continuing to use Saxon with him and my younger child as well.

Saxon Math 2
No complaints. I believe in Saxon Math. It works. I wish I would have learned using this curriculum. I would have really understood math! LAUSD just pushed through to the next grade on a conveyor belt. I was lost after 2nd grade!

2nd Grade kit
This is an easy system, step by step instructions. So far my 2nd grader is engaged and enjoying the materials. The pace is a bit slow for us but as we continue to build I am sure it will get more in depth.

Perfect if your family likes the repetitiveness
I used Saxon Math for my older son when he was in 5th and 6th grade. I liked it but decided to try something new for my smaller ones when they were in Kindergarten and First grade. It worked out ok but I wanted them to remember the concepts a little more so I bought Saxon 2 for them this year. So far it is perfect. I excelled in school in the classes that drilled it in what you were learning and now I'm watching my two Second graders excel in their mah. I'm loving math this year and so are they and math used to be their lease favorite subject.

Saxon Math
I'm in my 5th year of homeschooling, and this is my third child using Saxon Math 2! We love Saxon Math for its simple design and straightforward way of teaching math. I like the way Saxon introduces a new topic and still drills previous lessons learned, helping students practice a concept until they've got it mastered. Excellent, straightforward math curriculum.

So far so good
I haven't had the opportunity to really dig into the teacher's manual yet, but so far so good. The manipulative kit is good, except the thermometer is not very good quality and not exactly child friendly, as it broke shortly after it was accidentally dropped by one of my children. The other parts of the manipulative kits seem durable enough though.

Awesome!
The Saxon math program is very detailed and really easy to teach. Our Daughter is doing "A" work with this. As it's our 1st year of home schooling, she is now mastering this, while in the public school system....not so much! Try it and see if you love it as we do!

She was struggling with math at the beginning of the year, and by the end of the school year she was confident and proficient with math.

My daughter just turned 7 and we are switching to Saxon math. She did Horizon's K last year because Horizon's 1 was overwhelming and frustrating her. We did the placement test and she was placed easily in Saxon 2. However, she has not memorized any math facts as of yet and she still struggles with time and money. I am wondering if Math 1 would be a better fit but a lot of the concepts listed she has already mastered. Will the things she has not learned/mastered be re-taught in Math 2 or would we be better off to go with Math 1? Thanks for your input!
A shopper on Aug 7, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Saxon 2 does review math facts, but a solid understanding of them would be helpful, in my opinion. Personally, I would do Saxon 1 and skip the lessons (or speed through) she is already strong at.
What is included in this kit?
A shopper on Oct 3, 2015
BEST ANSWER: You get the teacher's manual; fact cards for addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division; student worksheets and tests (in two booklets); and master pages for selected lessons. The master pages are needed to complete some of the lessons. There are also also pages for checklists and logs to keep track of the student's progress.

    BEST ANSWER: You get the teacher's manual; fact cards for addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division; student worksheets and tests (in two booklets); and master pages for selected lessons. The master pages are needed to complete some of the lessons. There are also also pages for checklists and logs to keep track of the student's progress.
