Category Description for Saxon K-3 Program:

The Teacher's Manual contains the actual lesson plans and information vital to the effective presentation of math concepts. The consumable Meeting Books are used during the teacher-student "meeting" in which concepts are introduced, demonstrated and practiced. If teaching more than one student at the same level, you will only need one meeting book. Consumable Student Workbooks are used in grades 1-3 only and contain student materials, flash cards and practice pages. The Math K Home Study Kit contains teacher edition and meeting book. Math 1, 2, and 3 kits contain teacher edition, meeting book, and a set of 2 workbooks. Manipulatives are a vital, integral part of the program; these are not included in the Home Study Kits, but are available through us also.

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 learned math using Saxon for my entire time being educated at home. It prepared me so well for college level math. Will likely use it for all my kids.

Highly recommended and was suggested by my son's tutor.

I love that Saxon Math walks parents right through the curriculum. It helps me feel confident teaching these concepts to my child.
Megan H on Aug 3, 2021
I tutored a young woman in Calculus several years ago, and she was no "math student", but because she had followed Saxon's spiraling approach she knew everything she had learned in earlier levels so well that she could work through the calculus material successfully. This purchase is for my 11 year old autistic son.
KATHLEEN S on Jul 28, 2021
we have really enjoyed Saxon math 1 & 2
Denise R on Jul 26, 2021
My daughter is very reluctant at math and so I plan on having her use Saxon 3 along with Nichole The Math Lady’s online videos.
Sandra C on Jul 9, 2021
Saxon is the way go with math. Love the incremental approach with constant reinforcement of concepts. Flashcards have been a struggle. But the more time we put into them, the faster and easier they get.
Laura W on Jul 5, 2021
This math program is very effective and pushes my daughter to perform above and beyond other kids her grade. It is a little excessive in the amount of work she is supposed to do in one day, so we tailor it to her! Better than being left behind!

Catherine P on Jun 11, 2021
I have an Autistic son that I have used this program and we are ready for #3. I tried using a program I already owned but Autistic children do not like change. I felt he was regressing without the repetitiveness and the meeting strips. He needs familiarity. He watched his brothers and me go over the morning meeting strips and was sad he was not included. Plus, it is a good program. It moves too slowly for some but for a child such as mine, it is PERFECT.

Devilatha M on Jan 11, 2021
Despite some fun onscreen options, my kids have been drawn toward the simple paper of Saxon Math. We found online video tutorials through DIVE that match up with the lesson perfectly. We have enjoyed smooth math routines, embracing their 30 minute policy, and now have.a strong routine. GRATEFUL.

Jill D on Dec 14, 2020
For my 5th child, a more comprehensive and formulaic instruction was needed. My 2 gifted learners did well with Singapore, but the kids with more average abilities floundered. We also tried CTC Math for our sons with Autism and ADD, but I believe that the structure of Saxon might have been a better choice because by the time they began high school, there were large gaps in their knowledge.

Meridith C on Aug 4, 2020
I've been on the learning end and on the teaching end of Saxon math. I like how the concepts build on top of one another cumulatively rather than focusing on a subject, then moving on. As a student, Saxon math took a little learning curve to adjust to the way it words questions and makes you critically think, but after catching on, I liked the consistent, logical flow from lesson to lesson and from book to book as I progressed. As a teacher, I liked the scripted lessons and the continual review.

Grace Leah W N on Jul 29, 2020
I used Saxon 1 and 2 for first and second grade. I like the open and go instructions with little outside work on my part (just making sure we have any supplies needed for the lesson). I like the spiral review so my son doesn't forget skills. The calendar meeting and amount of repetition can be modified to meet your students needs. I like that Saxon uses a written format for student practice as I think it is important to be able to show the work (not just type the answer as in a digital program).
Heather W on Jul 29, 2020
My son did Saxon math last year and progressed very well. Now I am using it for all 4 of my children.

My daughter is in 4th grade, I a™m not sure if 5/4 is a good fit or if I should do 3rd grade? She struggles in math. Coming from public school she has not learned division
A shopper on Sep 24, 2020
BEST ANSWER: My daughter is also in Year 4 and struggles with Math. I had the same question concerning Saxon Math. What we decided to do and it has worked out well is to take a time based approach and not a lesson based approach. This way there is less pressure on her. She has 1 hour for Math and we go through it at a comfortable place and when am hour is up. We are done. We also use D.I.V.E. lectures with it and that has proven to be very helpful for all my children. I love it because he teaches the lesson very simply and clearly. Also don't forget to check out my Math assistant if you find the grading to be too much. It is an online math grading system specific to Saxon Math. My older boys use it and it saves me hours in grading because Saxon does have a lot of math problems per lesson. Hope that it goes well for you!!
On average, how long does a lesson usually take?
A shopper on Jun 25, 2019
BEST ANSWER: If you do everything from start to finish it would take 45-60 minutes. I usually cherry pick some of the warm up/reviews in the beginning to shorten it and tend to skip some of the activities of the lesson if I can teach the concept in a simple way (for example one day she has to have a pretend store to grasp the concept of money, I would just write on the paper instead of having her put prices on stuffed animals but tell the same story... I have 3 other kids so I don't have time to make it fun) and in a few cases it would take only half hour. I consider my kids rather good at math, though not very quick, so the worksheets generally take them less than 20 minutes. On bad days, though, if you include the worksheets it might run longer than an hour if you did everything exactly as it is laid out.
Where are the meeting strips?
A shopper on Jun 8, 2019
BEST ANSWER: The meeting strips are/can be used with the daily warm-ups. There is a space for the problem of the day, which you need to write out ahead of time and if I remember correctly, the daily pattern from the warm-up. As the course progresses, the strips may change in content, adding coin counting.
Is this common core aligned?
A shopper on Apr 3, 2019
BEST ANSWER: The Saxon Math 3 materials have a 1994 copyright. Accordingly, they were produced long before Common Core (2012). If there is any alignment, it is accidental.
Is it common core aligned?
A shopper on Apr 3, 2019
BEST ANSWER: I'm not sure what all common core entails but I do know there is common core methods in it. I'm not sure that most curriculums aren't common core aligned now.
is this meant for homeschool children ?
A shopper on Sep 14, 2018
BEST ANSWER: I used Saxon 3 math 2 years ago. It worked very well for homeschooling my 3rd grader. He did very well in his math scores on CAT for 3 rd grade required for PA. I love teaching with this curriculum. I do remember borrowing some math manipulative from the library. I hope this helps. I have been homeschooling for 20 years and have never considered switching to another math curriculum.
What exactly is in this kit? Does it come with the fact cards?
A shopper on Sep 19, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Yes, the Home Study Kit - #018401 - includes the fact cards (along with the Teacher Manual, Student Workbook, and Meeting Book).
What edition is this?
A shopper on Oct 8, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Saxon Math 3 is the first edition. There is a newer edition found in the public schools but the homeschool kit is the first edition with an early 90's copyright.

My 9 year old daughter is not a fan of numbers despite trying every exciting math curriculum out there. We find that she makes the most progress with Saxon because it is not overwhelming due to being so incremental. We use Nichole the Math Lady online videos to teach the main lesson and then she can usually complete the math worksheets with ease on her own. So not a super exciting curriculum, but definitely a great fit for a solid math education for your reluctant students!

Liking Saxon K-3
Just what it says: incremental developement of mathematics. I do occassionally bring additional visual aids into a lesson if my son doesn't catch on to a new concept right away.

Saxon Math 3
We love Saxon Math. It is all from booklets with easily pull out pages. The lessons are easy to follow and there is no wasted time as with many computer math lessons. The kids love Saxon also. I feel they are learning much more and it helps that we keep reviewing past lessons while learning new material. Not only does this help build mastery, it is definitely building their confidence.

Quarantine Math led to Saxon
We knew our child was struggling in Math, but teaching them at home help us see the struggles first hand. We love how the Saxon approach circles back on the basics to catch up on things students might have missed.
Using Saxon our child move at their own pace, and we can be sure they are not missing anything important. We are now seeing great progress. Thank you!

Easy to follow and teach math curriculum for the foreign homeschooling moms and dads.
Being a foreigner for the USA I struggled to homeschool my son with math and English language. Saxon math made it easy by writing comprehensive lesson to lesson instructions that now my son can read himself and finish most of the lessons on his own. I also learn a great deal about the words and specific phrases that explain math concepts.

Not a Fan
I felt the program was a bit too repetitive and dry. I thought the focus on calendar, temperature and money everyday was tedious. We used for a few months but my son, who loves math, did not look forward to the lessons. We ended up going with Beast Academy which seems to be a better fit for him. My daughter is working through Saxon 6/5 and it’s been fine for her. It really depends on the student.
