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.




Category Description for Saxon Math 8/7 (3rd Ed.):

Covers fractions, decimals, percents, geometry, area, volume, ratio, proportion, exponents, scientific notation, signed numbers, algebraic terms, 2-step equations and inequalities, slope, graphing, the Pythagorean Theorem.




Category Description for Saxon Middle School Programs:

Featuring the same methodology as previous editions plus enhanced mathematical content, Homeschool Kits contain a non-consumable student edition textbook, consumable tests and worksheets for one student, and a solutions manual. All three components of the Homeschool Kit come softbound. The Student Edition Text uses a two-color page layout, as opposed to the black and white pages of prior editions. Tests and Worksheets include a significant amount of fact drill practice, course tests, as well as various forms for recording student progress. Solutions Manual contains solutions to all problems in the text and tests.

Category Description for Mastering Algebra DVDs by Art Reed:

Yet another teaching tool for Saxon! This series of DVDs is done specifically for Saxon math. Taught by Art Reed, a former curriculum advisor in the home school division of Saxon Publishers, these DVDs teach concepts in an interesting classroom-type setting. Students view Mr. Reeds lessons Monday through Thursday, and then take their test on Friday.

Mr. Reed doesnt go through the actual problems found in the texts, but if you have a student who just needs a thorough explanation of each lesson, these DVDs work. You can tell by the length of some of the lessons that the explanations are a little more detailed than other supplemental teaching aids. I enjoyed watching the lessons with Mr. Reeds relaxed presentation, as he encourages and reassures the students that math doesnt have to be hard.

Each level of the series begins with a short introduction which explains placement and the Saxon methodology. There is a session for every lesson found in the Saxon textbook, and students will need to read the information found in the text before watching the video. Everything Mr. Reed presents in his sessions comes from the lesson in the text, and he also mentions alternative methods along with interesting comments. Lessons range in length from 5 to 25 minutes depending on the concept. He offers step-by-step instruction of the daily concept with samples for clarification. Mr. Reeds explanations are simple and make sense as he draws on a whiteboard and gives pertinent illustrations. This series is a good alternative for the student who responds better to a person making the presentation as opposed to just reading about it. ~ Donna

great reviews from other users on saxon math, and my son watched the short demo clips for the dvd options and picked the one with a human addressing the camera versus magic writing appearing on board!
