Category Description for Saxon Math Intermediate Grade 5:

Intermediate 5 includes word problems, add/subtract/multiply/divide whole numbers/decimals/fractions/mixed numbers, equivalent fractions, convert between fractions/decimals/percents, estimation, variables/expressions/equations, geometry and measurement, probability, etc.

Manipulatives are referenced throughout these levels (unlike 5/4 and 6/5), but they are optional. The same methodology is employed in both the Intermediate andtraditional Saxon Homeschool math courses, but Intermediate goes more into detail with the 4-step problem-solving process: 1) understand the problem, 2) devise a plan, 3) carry out the plan, and 4) look back (evaluate).

Category Description for Math Intermediate (Gr. 3-5):

Now available from the publishers of Saxon is the Math Intermediate Series (their public school line). This textbook-based program offers an alternative for parents who want to stick to Saxon, but want a colorful, hardcover text written to the student, rather than an overwhelming scripted teachers manual there are no teachers manuals in this series.

Intermediate 3 can be used in lieu of the traditional Saxon Math 3 and covers the same topics addition/subtraction facts, fractions, probability, estimating/calculating area, multiplication and division facts, dividing two-digit numbers, multiplying three numbers, arrays, congruent shapes, capacity, polygons, classifying angles, adding/subtracting multi-digit numbers, estimating lengths and distances, etc. There are 110 lessons and 11 "Investigations" which explore math concepts in-depth. Manipulatives are mentioned (but optional), and assessments are written only as opposed to both oral and written in the traditional Saxon Math 3.

Intermediate 4 and 5 can be used instead of Saxon 5/4 and 6/5. These include 120 lessons each, along with 12 "Investigations" in each. Early Finisher Problems found in the Intermediate edition offer enrichment and real-world application. Intermediate 4 includes word problems, elapsed time, inverse operations, multiplying two and three-digit numbers, mixed number and improper fractions, fractions/decimals/percents, geometry and measurement, division with two and three-digit numbers, estimating perimeter/area/volume, probability, etc. Intermediate 5 includes word problems, add/subtract/multiply/divide whole numbers/decimals/fractions/mixed numbers, equivalent fractions, convert between fractions/decimals/percents, estimation, variables/expressions/equations, geometry and measurement, probability, etc. Manipulatives are referenced throughout these levels (unlike 5/4 and 6/5), but they are optional. The same methodology is employed in both the Intermediate and traditional Saxon Homeschool math courses, but Intermediate goes more into detail with the 4-step problem-solving process: 1) understand the problem, 2) devise a plan, 3) carry out the plan, and 4) look back (evaluate).

Homeschool Kits include student text, test book and test answers, solutions manual, and "Power Up" workbook. The "Power up" Workbook (similar to Meeting Book at third grade level) is consumable and offers practice with math facts, mental math, and problem solving. Please note that no answer key for the Power Up Workbook is included. There are also Activity Pages referenced in each student text which are available only as PDF downloads (see our site listings for the Homeschool Kits to download).

Additional materials are available separately Written Practice Workbook, Adaptations Student Workbook, and Student Reference Chart. Adaptations Workbook is now available for each level, 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. Written Practice Workbook includes consumable worksheets of the Written Practice Problems found in the text. Student Reference Chart* is intended for easy access to formulas, helpful hints, and other reference tools.

This is a great opportunity for those who love the Saxon Math approach; you can now choose your program at these levels.

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.

There is a link for placement tests for Saxon but I don't see any for the intermediate 3-5. Are placement tests available for those?
A shopper on Jan 10, 2019
BEST ANSWER: There are not specific tests for the Math Intermediate series. However, the scope and sequence of the Intermediate series is more or less the same as the Math 3, 5/4, and 6/5 so you can use those tests as a "rule of thumb" guage.
I can't find the answer guide for the PowerUp book-- I would like to have one so I don't make the same mistakes my student is making. I can't find one anywhere, can someone help me find it?
A shopper on Nov 15, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Unfortunately, the publisher has not supplied us with an answer key for the PowerUp book. I'm sorry.
After saxon intermediate 5, what is next? is it 6/5? Thanks
on Aug 14, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Yes, we agree that the placement test is a good idea. Typically, your student should be ready for (at least) Math 76. Here's the link to the tests - http://www.rainbowresource.com/searchspring.php?q=math+placement+tests
What is included in this?
A shopper on Jul 7, 2016
BEST ANSWER: The set includes: text (#59205), test book (#18062), solutions manual (#18072), and the power-up book (#18070).
What's the difference in the Saxon math Intermediate 5 series between the "Written Practice" and the "Power Up Workbook"? Are both necessary?
A shopper on Jun 9, 2016
BEST ANSWER: I like having both. Power up workbook has fact problems and story problems.. It's kind of a warm up. The written practice has all the problems in the book so your kiddo doesn't have to spend so much time writing everything out. We actually will split the power ups and the written into 2 days because it is a lot of math in one day. If you want your child to write everything then you don't need either of them, just the big student manual. So just know each lesson has 2 parts to it and both the power up and the written practice are the printed versions that kids can write on and answer the problems. If you were going to choose one over the other, I'd get the written for sure.
Where do I find the Lesson Activities sheets? I remember having to print them out from previous grades, but I can't find them for Intermediate 5.
A shopper on Feb 9, 2016
BEST ANSWER: On the webpage that lists the Complete Homeschool Kit there is a small button just below the Add to Cart button. The button says "Download a Workbook." That download is the Activities Sheets.

Excellent, thorough, enough review to retain knowledge
I love Saxon Math because it lays such a great foundation. It can be time consuming to do all the skills review, but when I skip it, I find that my students forget. Math 5 continues the same trend. My student learns so much and on a much deeper level. We also got Teaching Textbooks 5 (TT) to start over the summer for skill review and to try it. I switched back to Saxon 5 for the actual school year because I find that Saxon has more varied topics, reviews enough for excellent retention (IN grade-level...I personally think they wait too long when starting some of the concepts that were introduced the year before, but it probably tracks well with the traditional scope and sequences...I have learned to simply remember those skills and add a few reminder problems). My student does this completely independently, but I grade the papers...which is one thing we loved about Teaching Textbooks...it graded for you, immediately. ..however TT seemed much easier and lacking in more complex thinking skills and problem solving compared to Saxon Math. So, we returned to Saxon. The extra work is worth it...and tests show Saxon learners do best on the ACT college entrance exams.

I have a friend, a certified teacher, who taught her children using the Singapore Math approach, but found that while the learning was excellent, they did not review enough to retain the learning, so she switched to Saxon Math and was happier with the long-term results. Also, another mother said her children did well in college, and reported that other kids didn't even try to answer difficult problems the professor would pose, but that by using skills learned in Saxon, she was able to think through the skills. I have heard this from several mom's with kids in college.
