Algebra 1 Homeschool Kit with Solutions Manual 3rd Edition
Set includes the following items:
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.
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.

Saxon provides two options for answers: Answer Key (which contains the test answers (with solutions) and homework answers (no solutions) and Solutions Manual (which contains homework answers (with solutions) but no test information). If you want to be able to grade the tests, then you need the Answer Key. My 3rd edition book is called 'Homeschool Packet'; I couldn't find any other title for it.) In addition, if you want step-by-step solutions for the homework (practice sets and problem sets) you will need the Solutions Manual also.
Although I spent lots of time reading other reviews before ordering this, it was disappointing. Saxon 8/7 advanced rather fast at the end, and I expected Algebra 1 would be similar in the last 1/8 of saxon 8/7 in terms of pacing. I am glad we didn’t order Algebra 1/2 as we consider it first seriously. Algebra 1 takes off really slowly with lots of reviews of 8/7. Our 6th grade is doing just fine with Algebra 1 after finishing 8/7. Also, I regret that we didn’t order the newest version because the review said that the new version moves fast without much explanations. Looking at Algebra 1, how it is pacing, we should have bought the newest version instead...in considering we really do not need too much in depth explanations for this book anyway as it is basically the same theory from 8/7. I wish there was a way to look into the first a few lessons without buying the textbook and wish there were more description of the deference between 8/7, algebra 1/2 and 1. Hope this review will help others in similar situations. Though lots of review made it sound like Algebra 1 is really hard, it is not hard at all.... not much different from prealgebra. I am confident to say that if your student is doing well- average 85% on 8/7 ( mixed practice), regardless of age (some review recommended to go for Algebra 1/2 if students are too young), skip Algebra 1/2 and go for Algebra 1. I would have gone for the newest version, not the old version.

The Saxon Alg. I HS Kit w. Solutions Manual (third edition) is extremely thorough, everything is laid out for you, and the solutions manual is great if you get a problem incorrect, and you need to find your mistake. So helpful.
While I know Saxon curriculum isn't for everyone, my student thrives with it. As of right now, we'll be continuing on through high school using these materials.
Also, to give a shout out to RRC, they make homeschooling much less stressful. I'm an accidental homeschool mom, and I feel confident knowing that I can get so many different homeschool items at one place.
