Math, good... paper, HORRIBLE
I'm taking my second child through this set and had to replace the worksheets this year but the quality of the paper is SO BAD. "Perforated" is a suggestion, we rip almost every work sheet trying to get it out. Just be warned.

The actual math is fantastic though and I would recommend Saxon to anyone! We did Singapore with my first daughter until 2nd grade and the improvement in her skills as well as our math lessons was off the charts when we switched.

replacement Consumables are pricey.
We really like Saxon and will continue using it as we educate our 5 children. We have invested of course, in the initial Homeschool Kits when we began new levels (school years). However the price of the consumables gets pricey. It would be nice to see this particular package without the fact cards...I have stacks of them leftover from our last child that went through this particular level. 34 + dollars for the two workbooks and the fact-cards is just plain HIGH. The meeting book is separately available for 14 dollars...again HIGH. Kind of leaves honest homeschoolers in a tough spot...you've got to have those consumables to use with you next child but gracious sakes !

We love Saxon!
I am in my 7th year of home school and am convinced Saxon math is one of the best math curriculums out there. We briefly tried switching to Singapore on the recommendation of a friend, but my kids were lost and concepts didn't seem to be explained as clearly. Saxon explains the why behind the math, requires little time for me to prepare and gives my kids confidence when it comes to approaching new word problems. I'm so thankful we began with this program years ago!

Saxon is great
I really like this curriculum. The only thing I didn't like was that the meeting book is not included.

Great Math Curriculum
We love Saxon for math. It is no nonsense. It introduces new topics then reviews them periodically so that the child doesn't forget what they learned.

Easy to use.
I have 5 children that have used Saxon math. It is clear and easy to use, yet flexable enough to help them succeed. Three of my children are up at least one grade level and when my daughter decided she wanted to go to community school, not only was she moved up a grade, but math was easy because she had a very strong foundation. Saxon math worked for us.

Saxon can do what most teachers can't.
I can't say enough positive about this system. It is clearly made by intuitive and intelligent people who know how to slide concepts into a learning environment and make it look easy--easier than I ever could. It doesn't occur to me to develop math for someone else, naturally. These workbooks ease the student from concept to concept until, like a circular ladder, the child is steadily rising into more "difficult" concepts without even realizing their achievement. Worth the cost even if the price were doubled. Math doesn't have to be hard to be effective--full of traps and tricks to "strengthen" the student. More often than not, they're not strengthened but frustrated. This series is a stunning achievement that I wish everyone could discover.

Love Teaching Saxon
I have used Saxon Math for all 7 of my children. We only homeschool for the elementary years and then they attend our wonderful public school. We have graduated 2 Salutatorians, one was 6th in her class and one was 5th in his class. Our current 10th grader is advanced enough in math that he has been removed from the general class and is doing an online class with 3 other students. We have recently adopted an 8 and year old who had very little education so without question we dove right into Saxon K. Saxon math is easy to teach and I find that my children easly retain the concept.

saxon 2 math curriculum
Kim S on Nov 1, 2018
We're headed into this book with our 3rd child this year, and over all I like Saxon. It's thorough, has a teacher's manual so I know what to teach, and the kids seem to like it fine. There is a lot of repetition in the worksheets, which I do not always have the kids do--I just gauge the needs and modify as needed.
Anna B on Oct 6, 2018
Best math program out there! Thorough, direct instruction, and spiral curriculum leads to deeper math understanding and long-term mastery.

Debi B on Aug 23, 2018
I have taught all my kids with Saxon and my oldest is getting ready to graduate college in engineering. It may seem cumbersome to some people because of the repetition and so many problems each day in upper grades. But stick with it, your student will be excellent in math if you use Saxon faithfully.

Have the original teacher guide, but needed the set of consumables.

I bought an extra set, so my daughter can use this when she is old enough--I wanted to get it now just in case it went out of print before she was ready.

Loved Saxon Math for K & 1st
Cami C on Jun 26, 2018
We have used this curriculum for 12 years. I already have the teacher's manual, so I purchase the workbooks for each additional child when they are ready for it.
Lorna V on May 21, 2018
This will be my second time teaching Saxon Math 2. I loved this workbook - it was simple and straightforward. My father was a high school math teacher and recommended Saxon because repetition is a necessary component in math education. I can teach the main idea of a lesson in a matter of minutes and then the child can do the worksheet independently. I rarely follow the entire teacher's script for meeting time, which is why the lesson explanation time, for me, is so short.
Krista R on Apr 17, 2018
I feel that Saxon gives a good foundation in math concepts.
Kymberly J on Apr 13, 2018
I did saxon math as a child and it was so simple and easy to understand. I have used 2 other math curriculums and am now switching all my kids to saxon because it is just still the best tried and true math curriculum.

I like Saxon because of the script for me as a teacher, and the drilling of math facts. We do jump ahead sometimes (the first 1/3 is mostly repetition/review) but overall it's a great program!

My son learned Math well using Saxon Math 1 last school year so we are continuing with Saxon. We purchased teacher's manual via ebay and needed student workbooks.

Saxon is timeless (a bit boring) and works!! My 6th grader has always used Saxon and my younger one will too.

saxon 2 math curriculum
Kim S on Nov 1, 2018
Hi! I have the Math 2 Home Teacher's Edition manual. I need to purchase the workbooks but was wondering if the publication dates were compatible. Do the worksheets in the workbook match? My manual has a 1994 publication date. Would that match the 1991 published workbooks?
A shopper on Feb 10, 2019
BEST ANSWER: Yes, they will match.
Is this the homeschool edition (i.e., the same workbooks in the home study kit that are not common core aligned)?
User on Jan 27, 2017
BEST ANSWER: I'm not exactly familiar with the home study kit, but this workbook is used for the homeschool edition of saxon 2 (teacher edition attached below). It is not specifically common core aligned, although I understand that some changes will be coming, as Houghton Mifflin Harcourt has purchased the Saxon curriculum. I hope someone else has more insight to add!
Saxon Math 2 Teacher Edition
Saxon Math 2 Teacher Edition
I have math for older kids and it came with the answers to all the drills and practice questions. Does this set come with those?
A shopper on Sep 13, 2016
BEST ANSWER: The Math 2 student workbook / fact card pack does not come with the answers OR the teacher lesson information that is necessary to teach the lesson. That information is in the large spiral bound teacher edition which can be purchased as a set with the student workbook / fact cards.
Can my 2nd grader start the 2nd grade Saxon math after being in public school the last two years?
A shopper on Aug 23, 2016
BEST ANSWER: I'd imagine that an average 2nd grade math student would be able to jump right in. There's some review of previously learned concepts. Additionally, the idea with this program is not that you know everything before you move on, but that you are introduced to a topic and continue to practice it. Mastery will come with time, and lessons build on each other incrementally, logically, and with lots of practice and parent involvement.
I would like to not have to buy the entire kit...I know that "it's worth it" to get the whole kit, but I truly cannot afford the extra if I can just use the workbooks at this grade level and can improvise for manipulatives and such. Are the workbooks straightforward enough to not need a textbook or teacher's book at the second grade level? Thank-you
A shopper on Jul 3, 2016
BEST ANSWER: You need to buy the teacher's manual so that you can do the math meeting each day. It's very scripted and well-written, but it would be difficult to know how to fill in the meeting book without it. I bought a used teacher's manual on ebay for $10 last year. Also, if you have a local curriculum swap center, that's a great place to buy the manuals used. Hope that helps!
