Category Description for Saxon High School Programs:

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.

Category Description for DIVE Math CD-ROMs:

Video clip lectures developed for use with Saxon's Home Study Kits (though designed FOR, they were not designed BY Saxon). Lecture sets, which contain one lecture per lesson, are available by level for Math 54 through Calculus and Physics. Each level is contained on one or two CD-ROMs. D.I.V.E. lectures are ideal for the student who needs a little more explanation than what's available in the text. I've found that even when you carefully read a math text, it's often easier to understand a new concept if you can hear someone else verbalize it. The lectures are approximately 10-20 minutes long (the higher the level, the longer the lecture). Each lecture is stored in its own file. To use D.I.V.E., the student opens his text to the next lesson and opens the corresponding lecture file on the computer. Lectures take place on a chalkboard/whiteboard screen. You hear the teacher, but don't actually see him - rather you only see what he writes on the board. The student's job is to follow along in the text (please note: the D.I.V.E. CDs do not follow along with the text on a problem-by-problem basis) and to take notes. In a typical lecture, the teacher gives a short explanation and works several practice problems. Lectures are given by Dr. David Shormann, an experienced math and science teacher. Aside from an occasional quote from the Bible (used to preface a lecture), the content is always focused on the topic at hand. Lectures can easily be paused, rewound, or fast-forwarded so the student can work at his own pace. For the Physics level, a Physics Video Lab is available in addition to the regular D.I.V.E CD-ROM. This convenient video tutorial follows Saxon Physics 1st Edition and the regular CD lectures. It performs the experiments for you using several thousand dollars worth of science equipment, including radar guns, photogate timers, and stroboscopes. Each Physics Video Lab includes photos, video, and graphs and tables from the lab experiment. Students can print out a lab activity sheet, watch the lab and record experimental data, pause the CD-ROM to complete calculations, and then turn the CD back on to check work. 23 labs are included in all and most of them follow the scientific method (question, hypothesis, methods, results, discussion). All labs are taught from a Christian perspective. Four quarterly exams, with video solutions, are also provided (these are based on the exams found in the Saxon Physics test book, so students can study these to prepare for those exams). At each level, these tutorials provide valuable verbal instruction for students. Please note that the edition of the DIVE CD must match the edition of the Saxon Math book you are using. System requirements: Windows XP or higher (including Windows 8), Mac OS (all versions including Yosemite). ~ Anh

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 Algebra 1 3rd Ed (with Geometry):

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.




Category Description for Saxon Math + D.I.V.E CD sets:

Packages include a Saxon Home Study Kit and the correlating DIVE CD.

We've used Horizons math for 6 years. They stop progressing with math after Algebra 1. We also use Classical Conversations, so this was the logical choice for my student.

Because we now have students on this level and need the cd to go with the program

Ambar C on Jan 28, 2019
I bought this for myself, not my homeschooled students. I recently went through the Teaching textbooks courses and want to do a comparison between the two before I make final decisions about which program I will use for my high school level students.

I love Saxon Math but we need to try having a teacher. He has never needed instruction but his work is getting sloppy. We hope this will help him better understand the concepts
Joy J on Dec 27, 2017
We need algebra 1 first.
Leonard R D on Sep 17, 2017
We've always loved Saxon Math and how it instructs our students. This program looked comprehensive as past Saxon products have been, plus it includes the DVD and the instructor is old-school but simple, quirky, and direct. These are all these my student prefers in an instructor, he does not like things to be dumbed-down. He likes the straight forward and most direct approach.
Jennifer R on Aug 9, 2017
This CD provides excellent instruction on each lesson of Saxon Algebra 1. A life-saver for homeschoolers.
Anne H on Mar 6, 2017
I love these DIVE CDs for Saxon! They are helpful for the student to work more independently and to understand how to work out the math problems!
Lily H on Dec 9, 2016
Found that Rainbow resource has the best price I could find.
Ni M on Oct 3, 2016
After completing many lessons within the Saxon Algebra 1/2, my son requested a higher Saxon math level. He really prefers this method of teaching. I like the tests.
Beverly C on Aug 30, 2016
We have always been extremely satisfied with the progress our children make with Saxon. Their standardized test scores are well above national average.
Heather S on Jul 18, 2016
My Father's World (homeschool curriculum company) recommended it. :)
Acts H on Jun 8, 2016
We have used this curriculum in the past and my son likes it. He can work independently with only occasional help.
Felecia B on May 10, 2016
Rainbow Resource had this Saxon Algebra I Homeschool kit at the cheapest price!
Holly C on Mar 14, 2016
Saxon is difficult but worthy. Friends have recommended the Dive CD so we are trying it with the upper levels.
Thomas C on Nov 14, 2015
I have friends who use Saxon and they love it. I thought I would give it a try.
April J on Nov 8, 2015
We've used Saxon Math all the way through from Kindergarten and really love the gentle way it teaches the different math concepts! And all the repetition is excellent (don't let all those people convince you that repetition is bad or boring- kids need that!)

With Algebra 1 3rd Edition Saxon Home Study Kit plus DIVE CD-ROM do you get a solutions manual?
A shopper on Aug 20, 2017
BEST ANSWER: No, you would still need to buy the solutions manual. If it is included, it would say so in the description.

You do get the Homeschool Packet which includes the final answers only for the problem sets and the solutions and answers for the tests. If you are looking for the step-by-step process (solutions) to the answers for the practice problems, you would need to buy the solutions manual.
What is the purpose of the DIVE CDs?
A shopper on Jan 9, 2017
BEST ANSWER: The DVD is fantastic! It is a guided lecture through the use of a online 'white board'. Each practice problem is worked through and explained along the way with helpful shortcuts and tips. My daughter REALLY liked it. It is divided up so that it is easy to jump back and listen again to one area of a lesson if there is a question about a problem from the book. Highly recommend!
what is the difference in the saxon algebra kit plus dive disc and the algebra 1 set plus the teacher cd-rom?

Saxon Algebra 1 HS Kit + Saxon Tchr CD-ROMs
BEST ANSWER: The teacher cd-rom teaches each lesson word for word from the book. The dive cd teaches each lesson with unique problems, so you can always go to the lesson and read it for further practice.
