Simple and clear
My daughter was having trouble with another math program. This one has helped her improve, especially with the daily drills. Good curriculum

Saxon is great
Saxon math is great. It brings us back to basic arithmetic; none of the common core math that doesn't do our kids any good. So happy with Saxon and won't be using anything else!!

Saxon Math is the best!
My child is one who dreads doing school work. I got him Saxon Math, and he told me that he actually really likes it. Since starting this program, I have not had to fight with him to do his work!

Saxon Math is great in so many ways, but this next step (5/4 edition) offers more independent learning and practice.

Just what we needed.
This math curriculum is just what we needed. I like the review in each lesson and the fact that there are plenty of problems per lesson, without going 'over board'. I also like that it is in black and white, much less distracting that color illustrations for my adhd learner. An added bonus is that it is consumable.

Easy to use especially for first time homeschoolers!
Love how it goes over and reviews enough for the kids to catch on! It also loops previous lessons in to so it helps the kids to continue to remember what they have already learned......unlike public schools that teach a subject, test on it and the kids never go over it again. Really like these books!!!!

It is as great as everyone says! We pulled our kids out of public school to start schooling at home My son ( going into 2nd) is a complete "math head" but my daughter (going into 4th) struggled with the speed of public school By the time she caught on they were two lessons ahead They have both excelled in this program! It is a great speed and review for my daughter and my "math head" picked right up on it It is a very "bland" program nothing fancy But enough repetition to make sure you know it I am going to stick with this program! As a new homeschooler I am glad I found a great fit for our Math curriculum

We chose the Saxon Math because we wanted a homeschool Math program that would be thorough, easy to follow, and challenging for our son.
Jeremy B on Oct 22, 2018
I needed a math program that has continuous review of previous material.
Sharon R on Oct 17, 2018
My son wants to stop his online curriculum for something hands on and his older sister uses Saxon and likes it. This also will prepare him for the type of math on the SAT/ACTs.

Looking for a detailed solutions material and daily math facts - Saxon has these.
Jill W on Jul 23, 2018
This is recommended by several homeschool friends, and I appreciate the spiral approach, as well as this being non-consumable textbooks.

I used Saxon 6/5 with my son and he loved it, so I wanted to start using Saxon Math for my 4rth grade daughter.

We unschool for most subjects but like to have a formal math curriculum. We had success waiting to start formal math until 4th grade with our first students who are now 21 and 23. We are now starting with our next batch of students who are 10,8, 8, 6, and 4. Saxon has a great system of introducing skills and topics while including academic knowledge outside of math.
Kathleen N on Apr 18, 2018
We have used Saxon Math for several years and are very pleased with the thorough instruction.

We have used Saxon since the beginning and love it!
Nikki H on Apr 8, 2018
I researched Intermediate 4 vs. Saxon 5/4. It seems to mostly be a style difference. Intermediate 4 is written more like K-3, so if you like that style, and your level of involvement, stick with that. If you think your kiddo is ready for a little bit more self-directed (w/ no workbook) studies, then 5/4 will fit. Since we are year-round homeschoolers, we will probably skip several of the initial lessons as I read there is significant review in the early lessons.

Great Price and Variety of Products!

My daughter needs a different curriculum than the one she began the school year with due to frustration.

Want a good math course with the spiral review. This is one of the best if not the best.

Saxon Math works for us. My daughter needs the repetition. We will be trying to combine the word problem book from Singapore Math to help her keep up with what is being taught in public school.

Kristy C on Aug 27, 2017
This program has worked well for my students. We have tried other programs that were the Singapore method, but they seem to grasp the concepts and progress better and faster with Saxon.
Mildred F on Aug 23, 2017
While the Saxon books have been more intense for our girls, they are learning more than they were with other math curriculum.

What is the difference between this and Intermediate 5?
User on Oct 29, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Saxon Math 5/4 corresponds to Math Intermediate 4 while Saxon Math 6/5 corresponds to Math Intermediate 5.

Math 5/4 and Math Intermediate 4 as well as Math 6/5 and Math Intermediate 5 are similar in terms of scope and sequence and in terms of general format. All have 120 Lessons plus 12 Investigations.

Both provide Saxon’s incremental spiral approach plus lots of review and repetition. Intermediate goes more into detail with the 4-step problem-solving process: 1) under­stand the problem, 2) devise a plan, 3) carry out the plan, and 4) look back (evaluate).

Manipulatives are referenced throughout MI-4 and MI-5 (unlike 5/4 and 6/5), but they are optional. MI-4 and MI-5 are hardcover while 5/4 and 6/5 are softcover. MI-4 and MI-5 are topically aligned to Common Core while technically 5/4 and 6/5 are not.

Most of the differences in the two editions are in the area of supplementals available. Math 5/4 has Saxon Teacher support – as well as DIVE. MI-4 and MI-5 have some supplementary products which can be helpful in certain situations - Written Practice Workbook (consumable worksheets of the Written Practice problems) and the Adaptations Student Workbook (consumable workbook containing adapted versions of the practice problems from the student textbook).

MI-4 and MI-5 also have “Early Finisher Problems” which are enrichment problems that have a real world connection.
which books are needed to offer for saxon 5/4 to offer a homeschooler all they need?
A shopper on Aug 18, 2018
BEST ANSWER: You will need the three books in the Homeschool kit - the student text, the solutions manual, and the tests/worksheets
are the DVDs necessary and who would you recommend them to?
A shopper on Jun 4, 2018
BEST ANSWER: The DVDs are absolutely not necessary. I bought them and my son watched it only once. He didn’t like being taught by the DVD; he prefers that I teach the concepts. I assumed that at some point I would watch the DVDs in preparation of teaching him, but the math was simple enough that I never needed too. I won’t buy them in the future, because even if I do need to watch a video to prep. for a lesson, there are numerous free sites where I can get some tutoring (i.e.: YouTube and Khan Academy).
Are any manipulatives used with the Saxon5/4 book?
A shopper on May 17, 2016
BEST ANSWER: The only manipulative I can think of that is used with the 5/4 book is dice. And just on a side note...after using Saxon for the past few years before the 5/4 book I have been very pleased with being able to see the fruit of all the labor with previous books. I feel like my child has really LEARNED so many things.
