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.
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.
Both are computer-based, showing a computer screen where the numbers appear as the teacher explains the concept.
Both teach through the lesson.
Both also work through the sample problems.
STs work through the exact problems that are in the book. DIVEs work problems that are similar to but not identical to the book.
STs also provide worked solutions to every problem in the book - from the problem sets, the review sets, and the tests.
STs provide more actual content but some prefer the teaching style of Dr. Shormann from the DIVEs.
