Product Description:

These flash drives hold the same content as the Mastering Algebra DVD courses and can be used on a PC or Mac computer or on a Smart TV with a USB connection. Please note however, the USB will not work on a Chromebook running the Chrome operating system.

In the videos, Mr. Reed doesn't go through the actual problems found in the texts, but if you have a student who would benefit from a thorough explanation of each lesson, these videos would work well. You can tell by the length of some of the lessons that the explanations are a little more detailed than other supplemental teaching aids. I enjoyed watching the lessons with Mr. Reed's relaxed presentation, as he encourages and reassures the students that math doesn't have to be hard.

Each level of the series begins with a short introduction which explains placement and the Saxon methodology. There is a session for every lesson found in the Saxon textbook, and students will need to read the information found in the text before watching the video. Everything Mr. Reed presents in his sessions comes from the lesson in the text, and he also mentions alternative methods along with interesting comments. Lessons range in length from 5 to 25 minutes depending on the concept. He offers step-by-step instruction of the daily concept with samples for clarification. Mr. Reed's explanations are simple and make sense as he draws on a whiteboard and gives pertinent illustrations. This series is a good alternative for the student who responds better to a person making the presentation as opposed to just reading about it. ~ Donna

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.




Category Description for Saxon Algebra 1 3rd Ed (with Geometry):

Covers signed numbers, exponents, solving equations, two equations with unknowns, graphing equations, scientific notation, ratio, percent, variation, unit conversions, geometry, perimeter, area, volume, English to metric conversion, surface area. 3rd edition.

I need a source of backup explanations in case the textbook isn't enough. Art Reed seems to be well-liked by previous users; I hope he will work for us as well.

We had bought DVDs before for math that had a voice describing what was being done on a screen. My son struggled with that presentation form so we bought the USB for the Saxon Algebra 1/3. My son really liked being able to see an actual person talking, explaining concepts/short cuts/problems. Art Reed is an excellent teacher and my 14 year old is doing much better with remembering the underlying concepts. He is the one that has asked for the USB w/Art Reed for Algebra 1.

Do these videos require flash?
rebecca on Oct 8, 2021
BEST ANSWER: I'm sorry, I haven't used it yet, so I'm not sure. But I doubt it. As far as I know, the videos feature classroom style lectures, so I doubt Flash would have been necessary.
is this drive more like the teacher or like the dive CD?
A shopper on Mar 16, 2021
BEST ANSWER: Mastering Algebra is another Saxon tutorial option. You see Art Reed teaching at a whiteboard. This is not a digital whiteboard like on ST or DIVE. He uses different numbers from the textbook, resulting in more examples and instruction, and follows the concepts in the lessons.
