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.

Saxon has been proven time and time again to be the best choice for college prep, or even to give non-college bound children a good math foundation. We all need to know how to balance our bank account, right? My son is public-schooled this year but advanced math, and this kit is our bridge to skipping an entire year of math. The school uses common core, but we are teaching concepts at home the Saxon way.

BEST ANSWER: Absolutely, this is exactly what I did with my child. My son is naturally talented with math and I skipped the 8/7 series after finding many of the concepts redundant. We began the algebra 1/2 and it worked out excellently. I also bought the two cd series, the lesson teaching cd and the answer key walk along cd and wow how they amplified the lesson experience and cane to the rescue niece when there was a typo in the book (only one). So don’t worry at all.
Coming from Rod and Staff math 6th grade should we take Saxon 76 or Saxon 87- student does well in math just wants to be challenged a bit. Rod and Staff does not seem to introduce enough concepts- great for drilling arithmetic facts but not enough material to prepare for higher math. Or am I wrong? We thought of switching now so we can get used to the format through high school.
viola on May 24, 2019
BEST ANSWER: I was in this same position when my son finished R&S level 6 math. My son took the Saxon placement test and scored borderline between 7/6 and 8/7. After asking on various forums he did 8/7. Saxon is similar to R&S I think. They are both rigorous and solid math curriculums. We switched because I planned to use Saxon for upper level mathematics up to calculus which R&S doesn’t do and I wanted him to be comfortable and familiar with the Saxon methods. He did great with 8/7. He also used Life of Fred prealgebra at the same time and loved it! It teaches the relevancy of math and makes it fun. As a side note, he is a math lover and I never have to help him or really check his work much.
We 'tried' public school for my 7th grader last year. I withdrew her because she was failing math (and too much drama). I filled in her "Math Holes" with Saxon and then started her on lesson 80 of Saxon 8/7. She then studied independently and ACED every single lesson thereafter! Super proud of her! So here's my question: Is pre Algebra necessary or can I go straight to Algebra 1? I wouldn't normally consider it but she got 100s on every assignment from Saxon 8/7 lessons 90-120! I even hid my grade book and watched her work a lesson, thinking she might have cheated! She sure wasn't! Just needed the right tools!

BEST ANSWER: The basic criteria we use is that a student needs to get at least 80-85% on all the tests following Lessons 80-120 of Math 8/7 in order to be comfortable in Algebra 1. It sounds like your daughter has met that criteria - and then some! Both of you should be proud!
My child is 14 and need a review of the basic math. Which book will cover important concepts needed before Agebra I?
A shopper on Aug 31, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Math 87 starts with a complete review of all basic math concepts - addition, subtraction, multiplication, division, fractions, decimals, and percents. The first 80 lessons are mostly all review. Algebra concepts are introduced in the last 40 lessons.

It sounds as though Math 87 would be a good course for your child.
Do you need to purchase a teacher edition seperatly?
A shopper on Aug 28, 2017
BEST ANSWER: There is no Teacher Edition for the Saxon Math 8/7 3ED level. The level consists of only a Student Textbook, Solutions Manual, and Tests & Worksheets book. The student teaches himself by reading the daily lesson in the Student Textbook. Answers can be checked in Solutions Manual. Tests and timed drills are in the Tests & Worksheets book.
My son just finished 6/5 with no problems. I've been told the 7/6 has a lot of review. Is it too big of a jump to go from 6/5 to 8/7?
User on Aug 9, 2017
BEST ANSWER: I have used the Saxon Math homeschooling program for the last 16 years and I would never skip a book.
There is review on 7/6 as there is in all of them, but it won't be long before new concepts are introduced which will lead in to the 8/7 book.
Personally, I would be afraid my child may be lost beginning 8/7 without completing and mastering 7/6, which could result in frustration and then having to 'back track.' I know each child moves at a different pace, but I do not think you will be disappointed if you stay on course and move forward in Saxon order.
My son has just finished 6/5 and had no problems. I've been told that 7/6 has a lot of review. I don't want to buy a whole set if there is tons of review. Is going to 8/7 too big of a jump from 6/5? Is there a lot of review in 8/7 of 7/6?
A shopper on Aug 9, 2017
BEST ANSWER: All Saxon has a lot of review. The usual jump year is after 8/7 to Algebra 1. I would get 7/6, and give him tests at where you think he's at. When he makes enough errors, say, 3...then jump start him in the book there. If he finishes early, due to starting further on in the book, just have him start on the next book. Having done Saxon 1/2 after 8/7, I would just skip that and go straight to Algebra 1. Mine was good at Math, but made careless mistakes, so I made him do it for honing his computation accuracy. That's the one that has the most rehashing. It has the pre algebra review, but nothing they can't pick up in straight Algebra 1. All Saxons start out with the rehash...it's just the way it is. I like it for that. Summer kills their brain cells - in a therapeutic way...but often they need that refresher, just not always as much as the book begins with.
What year was this edition published?
User on Feb 17, 2016
BEST ANSWER: All three books in our kit have a 2005 copyright.
are there additional materials required for this math program?
A shopper on Dec 10, 2015
BEST ANSWER: No, but you can use less or more resources as you choose. The DIVE dvd's (sold separately from Saxon) are good resources if you want your child to watch a video of a professor teaching the new concepts (about 15 minutes per lesson) but they are not necessary. Using Saxon, in my opinion, can be tailored to the student, if they need repetitive, thorough progress to absorb math concepts, then do every problem at a steady pace. If they get bored easily this way, they need to move through the material more quickly or might benefit from supplemental math study. Saxon's strength is ALL the concepts needed, presented in the order that builds a strong foundation for the next math level. But it can be plodding and slow for the voracious math learner (IMHO)
Is this a paperback edition?
A shopper on Oct 17, 2015
BEST ANSWER: All of the pieces in the homeschool kit are softbound. We have found them to be durable. Check out the Saxon Teacher dvds for extra help. They show every problem in the book worked out on a whiteboard. ??

gold standard math
No use to look for anything else. They have it in Saxon. My children always score high on our required annual standardized tests, but especially outpace their peers at math. Spiral approach and mental math are essential. And math at home helps eliminate the anxiety which is the real reason we struggle as a nation at math. Also, i never ever time the tests. Jo Boaler (Purdue Math Pedagogy genius says that is a big no-no and I believe her :)

Zero Stars should be allowed
There is almost NO NEW MATERIAL in Saxon 8/7 as compared to 7/6. Before we purchased Saxon 8/7, my 6th grader used Saxon 7/6 for half of a year, and found it incredibly slow and boring. The needless repetition kills curious learning minds. We didn't even do any Mixed Practice but just focues on "Lesson Practice" which is supposed to be new material, but my son already knew 80-90% of the book contents from 4th grade level Math In Focus curriculum (I highly recommend this curriculum originating from Singapore). I went ahead and bought 8/7 thinking that maybe my son just needed to advance a year, in the Saxon content, but I was wrong. The Saxon material is severely below level and I found that 8/7 is almost a full repeat of content in 7/6 . It's possible the last 25% of the book has new material because I haven't gone through that yet page by page, but I already led my son through 75% of the book in 2 hours and he already knew the concepts either from Saxon 7/6 or from Math in Focus for 4th grade. If Americans use Saxon, the USA will remain behind other countries in producing future leaders in STEM areas.

Response from Rainbow Resource Center
Regarding the 75% repetition in 8/6 in comparison to 7/6, you are correct. The Saxon program is founded on review and repetition, being a spiral program, with a focus on constant repetition so that math becomes innate. In this particular volume, that equates to the 75% review and 25% new material at the end of the book. We highly recommend any student taking the specific curriculum's placement tests prior to starting a new program (or switching from another). That ensures that students are starting on the correct level; curricula can vary significantly from one to another.
