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.

I've used Saxon Math and English with my 4 kids over the past 15 years. I cannot recommend Saxon enough for it's ease in understanding and usability.

When I pair this with "Mymathassistant" it is the best choice for teaching an excellent curriculum with added online assistance.

This is the curriculum we will be using this year for high school math.
Betsy A on Aug 29, 2020
My son has used a few different math curricula over the course of his home school years. He specifically requested Saxon this year, for its ability to build concepts incrementally, logically, and concisely. He enjoys math and grasps the concepts fairly easily, and appreciates the solid explanations of mathematical concepts.

I taught Saxon 1,2 and advanced for 16 Years at North Pole High School, love the method and choosing this level to start with home schooling

Your website had this for the best price. :^) Thanks

Saxon is a solid math curriculum. The lessons are broken down to digestible chunks for kids so it's not too overwhelming. Lots of review problems so the information sticks. This is important especially when algebra 1 paves the way for algebra 2, etc.
Saowalak J on Aug 18, 2020
Saxon was recommended to me by a previous homeschooling mom. She said that math was not her strong point, and this helped her children excel in the math they were learning beyond their expectations for the grade level.

My daughter has been using Saxon for a few years - read an article that said Algebra 1/2 may not be necessary for all students. Took placement tests found on Sonlight and Christian Book and she passed into this level.

We've used saxon for years now. I chose Algebra 1 because my 9th grader is in that level.
Klarisa K on Jul 17, 2019
We have used Saxon Math since the 3rd grade for our son. I had to decide between 3rd/4th edition and between 1/2 and 1 levels. We picked 3rd edition to include some geometry concepts and continuation. 8/7 was so thorough that we are jumping right to level 1

BEST ANSWER: We do ship international. Details will show at checkout.
Is there an estimated daily lesson time as the lower Saxon levels lay out?
cynthia on Jan 31, 2022
BEST ANSWER: Somewhere in the material it give time suggestions. It also talks about only doing the odd or even problems if you are understanding the material. Because if you do every problem the lessons get lengthy. We would watch the math flac videos. They were inexpensive and gave a short lesson 5-10 min to each day to help explain the math.
Where do I locate when I should give the tests? I don’t see where to find that.
A shopper on Dec 2, 2020
BEST ANSWER: The testing schedule is typically in the front pages of the test booklet.
I have the Text Book, Solutions Manual (which contains the solutions to the Text Book problems), and we have the Test Forms booklet. I do not have an answer key for the tests. Where are the test answers? Is there a separate booklet for this? TIA!
A shopper on Oct 9, 2019
BEST ANSWER: Solutions to the Test problems are in the answer key (#004741) which can only be purchased as part of this set:
Am I missing something, this kit is less than purchasing the text allone? It that correct?
A shopper on Jun 7, 2019
BEST ANSWER: Yes, although it's unusual, the Saxon Homeschool Kit for Algebra 1 is LESS than the cost of the text book alone. The reason is because we sell so many of the kits we get additional discounts when we order from the publisher which we pass on to our customers.
Would this be good for a struggling student with mild learning disabilities?
A shopper on Jul 10, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Depends on the disability.Text explanations are excellent and options are: (1)lots of repetition or (2)learn concept and move on. Does have some hands on, which can help with the visual & tactile learner.
Can a student begin Saxon at the Alg. 1 level if he's never used the Saxon series before?
A shopper on Jul 10, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Absolutely. Two of my children made the switch. The format took a bit to get used to, but they persevered and after a few weeks were accustomed to the "saxon format."
Does the student solve the questions by writing the answers in the student text book or are the questions written separately on a sheet of notebook paper?
A shopper on Oct 28, 2017
BEST ANSWER: They student solves the problems on a desperate sheet of notebook paper. The textbooks are completely reusable!
Do you need the solution manual in addition to the homeschool packet?
A shopper on Jan 9, 2016
BEST ANSWER: The homeschool packet provides the answers to the problems, but doesn't show the work of getting the answer. The solutions manual contains the steps to get the answers to the problems. Even though I'm quite comfortable with algebra, it helps to have the problem worked out so that I don't have spend time working out the problems myself.

It’s a bit pricey, but worth it. It’s a set of 3 books with plenty of great material for the year. Love the part how they even provide tests so I don’t have to create one

Excellent for In-depth Math Understanding for All Levels
We love the Saxon Math Series. It is a good as Singapore Math in that it develops concepts, but practices more often so people don't forget them. If you follow the older books rhat mix in Geometry into all the books starting in Kindergarten, then you can finish a year earier with the same comprehension. And, it's less foreign a concept. We have used Saxon Math since Kindergarten, but we also dabbled in Teaching Textbooks and Khan Academy for fun one summer each. Saxon was definitely far superior.

Not homeschool friendly
The answer key only has odd numbers and it states students should check each other’s work with the even number questions . This is a problem because in homeschool we don’t have “ multiple students” and it’s primarily the parents giving the test. So... I believe that should be rectified in the homeschool packet

Intensive Algebra Curriculum
This curriculum is very thorough. If you don't have a grasp on Algebra, this will be challenging to teach. My son usually doesn't have a problem understanding this curriculum because he used the Saxon Algebra 1/2 last year.

I am a die-hard Math-U-See fan and never thought I'd be even remotely tempted to try Saxon of all programs Having heard that it was tedious and had way to much busy work and being happy with Math-U-See Saxon wasn't even on the radar for me Then came Algebra 1 My son just wasn't getting it with Math-U-See After much frustration we decided to try Saxon We haven't looked back since! Saxon is a perfect fit for my son He's always been good at Math until he started Algebra He also seems to learn best by reading and the Saxon lessons are directed to the student and are extremely thorough My son has really taken off with this program and along with the Saxon Teacher CD Roms he can now do Algebra without constant input from me Being a busy homeschool mom I'm thrilled with the freedom that Saxon Math has brought to our days This program is well worth the price My son has rediscovered his confidence in his math skills and that for me is priceless!

Do not attempt to buy this without the Dive Cd that is available The DIVE was helpful but we will still take a break from this approach for Algebra II It is incremental and spiral based but there was not enough review of the NEW concepts learned in each lesson which caused frustration at my house There are over 120 lessons in this book The Dive Cd covers the example problems only not the practice or test problems
