Product Description:

The Homeschool Kit includes a hardcover studenjt text, homeschool test books with answer key and solutions manual.

The 4th Editions of Algebra 1 and Algebra 2 are intended primarily for students who plan on taking Saxon Geometry and are wanting Algebra 1 and Algebra 2 courses with reduced geometry content. The sequence for incorporating these courses would be: Algebra 1, Geometry, then Algebra 2. The main difference between the 3rd and 4th editions is that much of the previously-integrated geometry content has been removed. You may find this a positive or a negative, depending on your student's need to review geometry concepts, especially in Algebra 2 (or pre-ACT!). Another difference is that there are no step-by-step solutions for the test problems except on the Saxon Teacher CD-ROMs. At this point, Saxon is not recommending that most homeschoolers switch to the 4th editions. Homeschool Kits for the 4th Ed. courses include hardcover texts, homeschool test books (with answer key) and solutions manuals. 120 lessons. An Adaptations Workbook is now available, which provides an alternative for students with special needs. This consumable workbook contains adapted versions of the practice problems found in the student text, with plenty of space provided for working the problems in the workbook. The adapted problems offer more visual prompts and clues for doing the problems.

Category Description for Saxon High School Programs:

Homeschool Kits contain a non-consumable hardcover student text, an answer key to problem sets and tests, and a test booklet. Solution manuals are NOT included unless you purchase a Homeschool Kit with Solutions Manual. For each problem, these manuals take you step-by-step to the solution. A big help if higher level math isn't your strong suit. All books are the most current edition. Please note that Homeschool Kit contents for Geometry and 4th Editions of Algebra 1 and Algebra 2 are different and do include a solution manual.

Category Description for Saxon Math:

Students like Saxon because they feel successful in math instead of overwhelmed.

The most popular homeschooling math program hands down! Highly recommended by both Mary Pride and Cathy Duffy, Saxon Math also wins our award for the "Most Requested Text." Saxon math is a "user-friendly" math program - even for Algebra, Trigonometry, Calculus and other usually difficult math topics. Learning is incremental and each new concept is continuously reviewed, so the learning has time to "sink in" instead of being forgotten when the next topic is presented. Higher scores on standardized tests and increased enrollments in upper-level math and science classes have resulted where Saxon has been used in public schools. Students like Saxon because they feel successful in math instead of overwhelmed. Because of the format, children are able to work more independently.

It was the required textbook for our co-op. If I were to choose myself, I would choose BJU or Math-U-See

Trusted resource. Budget friendly.

We have been very successive with Saxon for years and love the spiral approach. We want an approach that is independent of watching videos.
Mary H on Feb 15, 2016
I picked this for several reasons: 1. it is very comprehensive, 2. The DVD teacher, and 3. text book based rather than on-line.

Can you purchase the Saxon Algebra 1 solutions guide without the text book? This edition with the camera on the cover.
User on Aug 30, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Perhaps but be careful as some printings have been updated. Be certain you get the solutions manual for the printing you have!
Benefits of Saxon Alg 1 4th edition over 3rd edition?
A shopper on Sep 30, 2017
BEST ANSWER: We did not like the 4th edition at all. It's not written by Saxon and you can really tell. We felt like they expected you to know concepts without adequate prior explanation so I often felt as if we'd missed something, even though we'd done all the previous lessons. It felt disorganized and much more theoretical than the 3rd edition. I've taught classes of homeschool students for 6 years so I'm very familiar with both editions, and in my opinion, the 3rd if excellent and I recommend it highly. Avoid the 4th edition.
Do you have 4th edition?
Not a student edition.
I mean not 2009
It's 2011
A shopper on Nov 10, 2015
BEST ANSWER: I'm a bit confused by your questions. This kit includes the 4th edition Algebra 1 student text, solutions manual, and test book. The kit has a 2011 publication date.

Very Disappointed - Very Different
I was very disappointed with this 4th Edition Algebra I book. In fact, I do NOT recommend it at all. After successfully using Saxon Math with my two homeschooled children, we suddenly hit a wall with this edition. Three major things are different. (1) This is not truly a Saxon homeschool book. Instead, it was developed with/heavily influenced by Houghton Mifflin Harcourt for the public school market, even though it's also being sold for homeschool. (2) As a result, the daily lesson is taught differently. With previous editions, the textbook provides detailed explanations since the textbook is the teacher; however, with the 4th edition, there are no detailed explanations, only confusing, brief texts (since public school kids would still have a classroom teacher) and then several sample problems worked out. About halfway into the book, it became very confusing with the lack of explanations and clear indication of when to use which formula. The sample problems were always very easy, but the homework typically featured complex problems or variations that the lesson didn't address. (3) There is also a substantial difference in the 4th edition's 30 daily lesson problems. There are very, very few straightforward problems about the day's lesson. Instead, there are only 2 or 3 problems from the day, and almost all of the rest are basically story problems (problem-solving). The cyclical review is still there, but the problems turn the lessons all around and want you to analyze it from various points of view. It's hard to explain. It sounds good, but the difficulty is that the student doesn't have enough repetition to master the formula/task before being required to analyze it differently. The student never knows what formula to use because it's always being asked a different way. Our family is going back to the 3rd edition books.
