Saxon Advanced Math 2ED Solution Manual
The Solutions Manuals leads you, step-by-step through the answer to every problem in the course.
Covers permutations, combinations, trigonometric and inverse functions, conic sections, matrices and determinants, binomial theorem, rational roots, Euclidean geometry. 2nd edition.
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.
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.
Another complaint is that in the lower level texts, the lesson number is included with each problem in the problem set, so if the student has forgotten how to do a problem, they can look back and find the lesson to review. This feature does not exist in the Advanced Math textbook.
Finally, I understand that in the real world not all problems have simple solutions or simple numbers, but each problem takes so many steps to solve with complicated numbers that the problem set takes a long time to complete.
The preface mentions that this book is a four semester course for the average student. Because there are no practice problems to go with the lesson, it is difficult to break the lesson down into two "class periods." It's more like, "Read the lesson and take several days to complete the problem set."
I'm sure many people will use this book for their child and think its great. I just feel the jump in difficulty from Algebra II to Advanced Mathematics was quite large. I don't feel the Algebra II book quite prepared us for the increase in difficulty.
