Easy to follow and teach math curriculum for the foreign homeschooling moms and dads.
Being a foreigner for the USA I struggled to homeschool my son with math and English language. Saxon math made it easy by writing comprehensive lesson to lesson instructions that now my son can read himself and finish most of the lessons on his own. I also learn a great deal about the words and specific phrases that explain math concepts.

Not a Fan
I felt the program was a bit too repetitive and dry. I thought the focus on calendar, temperature and money everyday was tedious. We used for a few months but my son, who loves math, did not look forward to the lessons. We ended up going with Beast Academy which seems to be a better fit for him. My daughter is working through Saxon 6/5 and it’s been fine for her. It really depends on the student.

Saxon Math 3
We have not done alot in this course yet, but I love this course. Easy instruction, and your child actually learns something. Easy exercises, and my son can do some of the work on his own.

Saxon Math 3
My daughter will soon be 8. She is technically in 2nd grade but is currently going through this level with a bit of extra help from mom. She is grasping it very well. I'm very happy with this curriculum.

A good choice
We switched from Singapore because my daughter needed extra practice and more review. As someone who often skips the basics, It helps me become a better teacher and go over things that I wouldn't normally do. I do get tired of how long this program takes but it has been exactly what my daughter needed

Works well
This is our first experience with Saxon and it has worked well for us. While the daily lessons introduce perhaps too little new information, we do love the circular nature of the materials. Revisiting topics over and over solidifies the material. We find ourselves doing 2-3 lessons a day and that pace seems appropriate. Recommend without reservation.

Love it
We are in our second year of homeschooling and this is our first year using Saxon. Both kids, 3rd and 2nd grade are using Saxon and love it. So happy to have found it.

I think Saxon Math is a very complete math curriculum but very dry There is lots of review and I think that is really good You want to master the basics before you move on I have 3 boys and I intend to continue to use Saxon Math The oldest will use 5/4 and the middle one will use Grade 2 Even though it is completelike I saidI think it is dry so I plan to mix it up and supplement with Life of Fred and Beast Academy

Was told it was good, so now we will try it
Tanja Maj H on Jul 16, 2019
We used Saxon Math Last year and we loved it. Its very well laid out and very narrative. If you're looking for flashy pages this is not the curriculum for you. I chose this program because of the recommendations and was very happy with it. We skip the meeting strip most days.

Linda R on Jan 28, 2019
My Son did Saxon Math 1&2 while home schooled and now that he is in public school, he is asking for Saxon 3. His 2nd grade teacher tells me he is doing 3rd grade math in school currently BUT my son said he is bored and wants to do Saxon math. Go figure!

I teach Special Education and love the Saxon program for my struggling students. It is developmentally paced, spirally progressive, and has ideas for using manipulatives which enhances concrete understanding.

Christine P on Jul 23, 2018
I used Math U See last year for my daughter, and though I love the way concepts are presented, I'm not thrilled with its mastery approach (as opposed to the spiral approach) to math because my daughter seems to be losing some of what she knew. Though Math U See does have review problems from previous years and concepts, it does not review how to do those problems. I'm going to use a mix of both Math U See and Saxon this year, and see if we can find the right rhythm for math for her.

A friend referred Saxon to me to transition from public school to homeschooling. This will be our first year homeschooling.
Jennifer C on Jul 14, 2018
We have been a part of a classical charter curriculum and have seen wonderful awesome results. We are planning to home school and keep the same curriculum because it was so great. My husband grew up with this program as well and is great at math and now a CPA.
Lori T on Jun 28, 2018
After much research and reading review after review, I felt Saxon would be the best fit for my family because, it gives step by step instructions on how to teach your child/children the lesson as well as what to say and it makes it fairly easy for the inexperienced homeschooler, like myself.
shawnique s on Jun 22, 2018
After trying other math curricula for years and failing, I have finally switched to Saxon for good. I believe it is by far the most thorough math curriculum available.

We have used Saxon since the beginning and love it!
Nikki H on Apr 8, 2018
I am a retired math teacher and Saxon is a wonderful math program. The repetition is the best. Each lesson always goes back and reviews lessons previously done. If followed, a student continuing with the Saxon program in elementary school will have an excellent math background. I purchased Saxon 1st grade and Saxon 3rd grade for my granddaughters. My 2nd grade granddaughter will actually be doing the 3rd grade book.

My daughter has had a hard time picking up math concepts at school. I want to use this to teach her in a slower more complete way so that she can understand what is being taught.

Recommended by other homeschooling families. Saxon 1-3 has never worked for my kids, but we like it much better starting with 5/4

On average, how long does a lesson usually take?
A shopper on Jun 25, 2019
BEST ANSWER: If you do everything from start to finish it would take 45-60 minutes. I usually cherry pick some of the warm up/reviews in the beginning to shorten it and tend to skip some of the activities of the lesson if I can teach the concept in a simple way (for example one day she has to have a pretend store to grasp the concept of money, I would just write on the paper instead of having her put prices on stuffed animals but tell the same story... I have 3 other kids so I don't have time to make it fun) and in a few cases it would take only half hour. I consider my kids rather good at math, though not very quick, so the worksheets generally take them less than 20 minutes. On bad days, though, if you include the worksheets it might run longer than an hour if you did everything exactly as it is laid out.
Where are the meeting strips?
A shopper on Jun 8, 2019
BEST ANSWER: The meeting strips are/can be used with the daily warm-ups. There is a space for the problem of the day, which you need to write out ahead of time and if I remember correctly, the daily pattern from the warm-up. As the course progresses, the strips may change in content, adding coin counting.
Is this common core aligned?
A shopper on Apr 3, 2019
BEST ANSWER: The Saxon Math 3 materials have a 1994 copyright. Accordingly, they were produced long before Common Core (2012). If there is any alignment, it is accidental.
Is it common core aligned?
A shopper on Apr 3, 2019
BEST ANSWER: I'm not sure what all common core entails but I do know there is common core methods in it. I'm not sure that most curriculums aren't common core aligned now.
is this meant for homeschool children ?
A shopper on Sep 14, 2018
BEST ANSWER: I used Saxon 3 math 2 years ago. It worked very well for homeschooling my 3rd grader. He did very well in his math scores on CAT for 3 rd grade required for PA. I love teaching with this curriculum. I do remember borrowing some math manipulative from the library. I hope this helps. I have been homeschooling for 20 years and have never considered switching to another math curriculum.
What exactly is in this kit? Does it come with the fact cards?
A shopper on Sep 19, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Yes, the Home Study Kit - #018401 - includes the fact cards (along with the Teacher Manual, Student Workbook, and Meeting Book).
What edition is this?
A shopper on Oct 8, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Saxon Math 3 is the first edition. There is a newer edition found in the public schools but the homeschool kit is the first edition with an early 90's copyright.
