Product Description:

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 Math 8/7 (3rd Ed.):

Covers fractions, decimals, percents, geometry, area, volume, ratio, proportion, exponents, scientific notation, signed numbers, algebraic terms, 2-step equations and inequalities, slope, graphing, the Pythagorean Theorem.




Category Description for Saxon Middle School Programs:

Featuring the same methodology as previous editions plus enhanced mathematical content, Homeschool Kits contain a non-consumable student edition textbook, consumable tests and worksheets for one student, and a solutions manual. All three components of the Homeschool Kit come softbound. The Student Edition Text uses a two-color page layout, as opposed to the black and white pages of prior editions. Tests and Worksheets include a significant amount of fact drill practice, course tests, as well as various forms for recording student progress. Solutions Manual contains solutions to all problems in the text and tests.

Category Description for Mastering Algebra DVDs by Art Reed:

Yet another teaching tool for Saxon! This series of DVDs is done specifically for Saxon math. Taught by Art Reed, a former curriculum advisor in the home school division of Saxon Publishers, these DVDs teach concepts in an interesting classroom-type setting. Students view Mr. Reeds lessons Monday through Thursday, and then take their test on Friday.

Mr. Reed doesnt go through the actual problems found in the texts, but if you have a student who just needs a thorough explanation of each lesson, these DVDs work. 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. Reeds relaxed presentation, as he encourages and reassures the students that math doesnt 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. Reeds 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

We love Saxon (3rd year using program) but wanted to add variety of instructor to mitigate curriculum fatigue

I chose to go with Art Reed, one because it can be resold unlike DIVE, and two, because after some reviews it is what the kids really like and helps them to understand their lessons better.

My son has a hard time focusing with the white board only version of the Saxon videos. I thought I would try this one since there's an actual person for him to see.
Jennifer H on Jan 29, 2018
I read great reviews and liked the sample video. I'm buying this to help my daughter as she transitions from another math program to Saxon math. I like the fact that it is a dvd because we can watch it on our tv rather than some of the others, which are CD-Roms, because my computer does not have a CD player built in.

Needed more instruction. My son prefers watching a teacher rather than just listening to a voice.

My son needs instructional videos for math and we use the Saxon math books.
Debra T on Jul 29, 2016
I have read online reviews that Art Reed is an experienced teacher who has a sense of humor, and kids enjoy his tapes.
Julie R on Jul 16, 2016
My reluctant Saxon math student needs all the help she can get and I'm willing to risk $50 for this DVD if it might help. Positive customer reviews sealed my decision.

For my home school daughter .
Althea S on Apr 28, 2016
My daughter had completed Saxon Math 7/6 and had 85% on her last 5 math tests which demonstrated she had mastered the subject and was ready to move to this next level.

How many DVDs are included with this set? Approximately how many lessons are on a single DVD?
A shopper on Jul 10, 2017
BEST ANSWER: There are 11 DVDs. All 120 lessons are covered in this DVD set. Each lesson is about 6-10 minutes long. About 12 lessons per disk. We love these!
What is the difference between this dvd set and the CD-ROM set? I'm confused!
A shopper on Jun 3, 2016
BEST ANSWER: I can only comment on the DVDs by Art Reed "Mastering Algebra", because that is all I bought. They are extremely helpful for my 3 kids. Art Reed stands in front of the white board and works out problems from each Saxon chapter. He doesn't do the exact problems in the book, but teaches the lesson so that the student is able to figure out their own problems. It has taken a lot of stress out of our home.
