Great for an independent math curriculum
My son loves this curriculum. He did lesson 100 today so he is almost done with the book. At the beginning, he did the Power Up workbook but then it got to be too much so we stopped it. He only did the practice problems in the book and there are usually 15-20 of them per lesson. We never ordered the Practice Book because it was never necessary. He does math 3-4 days a week and it's worked out great. This curriculum has a great way of making the student skip count and then eventually memorizing the facts without much effort. I have him do the lesson and then he tells me what he's learned in the lesson and then check his work. The Solutions manual isn't all that great and there are some errors. It tells you to "see student work" so I have to get the book to see what the directions told my student to do. It would be so much easier if the book just wrote "student draws a rectangle 3 in long by 1 in tall" as an example. It's a minor irritation but it does get annoying. We did eventually go back to doing the Power Up Workbook because the drill and mental math sections are fantastic. My child does the Power Up workbook about every 2-3 lessons and that is working out great. I just gave my child a practice test for a standardized test and he got a 100% out of 68 math questions. My child has requested do level 4 next year and we will continue with this series. It is a spiral method of learning so they teach a new concept but the questions also cover everything else your child has learned in the book up to that point. There are tests every 5 lessons and I love that the book lets the student know what chapter a concept was taught in for each practice problem so if they are having trouble, they can easily go to that chapter and look it up. I love that math is an independent subject except for me checking his answers. I highly recommend this solid math curriculum.

Some errors in solution manual
I am very pleased with the Saxon Int. 3 program. It suits my daughter and she is excelling in her studies. I am only a bit disappointed with the solutions manual. There are many errors in the solutions manual. For example, many times the text will list a problem for the student to solve in cents. The solution will list the problem and answer in dollars. Many of the discrepancies are of little consequence and easy to identify. It would just be nice not to have to correct my solutions book so frequently.

Excellent
Saxon math has saved my daughter. I had to pull her out of school and homeschool for various reasons, math was a big one. While she was very behind in math, Saxon does an excellent job at getting her caught up. Although a lot of the information included should have been taught the past two years, Saxon takes their time in re-teaching and building upon knowledge as you go. Complete the power-ups because they help with memorization of facts. Each written practice covers only what has been previously taught in this book this year. Quizes only cover what has been taught in previous chapters this year (and include where they were taught, so you can go back to re-teach if necessary). Someone else stated this kit doesn't include the written practice workbook however this is NOT necessary as the written practice problems are all INCLUDED in the text. Simply make photo copies of text pages, or have your child write their answers and show their work on lined paper. The only thing I sort of wish I had was an actual teacher text, but it's totally doable without it. Go to Saxon's website (hmhco) to find additional links to online resources that go with the text as well. It's not a super organized math program, as there's not a teaching textbook included - but everything you really need is available in this kit, and more if you search online.

"Saxon Reputation. Student can work independently. Why suffer through another year of the traditional Saxon Math 3?
David R on May 31, 2016
I love Saxon Math. Intermediate 3 will be a great transition for my son to enter into Saxon 5/4.

Is there not at "teacher manual" to this set?
A shopper on May 23, 2018
BEST ANSWER: No, this edition teaches the student directly in the text. Each lesson begins with a “Power Up”, kind of like a warm up, and then jumps into the “New Concept”, the new teaching for the day. Each new concept includes several examples worked out for the student to see exactly how it works. And then it’s followed up with 4-8 practices of the new concept. All of it (the “New Concept” being taught and fleshed out) is worded very well for the age/grade being taught so my daughter would generally do and understand the complete lesson on her own. After each lesson, I would ask her to tell me what the new concept was to gauge how well she understood it. Half the time, I will come alongside her at the beginning of the lesson and just read through the new concept with her and have her do the practices with me as well, letting her finish up the remainder of the lesson on her own. It’s been no problem not having a teachers manual for it. It’s all in the book! Which means the student is able to go back on their own as well and review a concept they haven’t understood very well. It’s worked very well for us!
Is there a teaching CD-Rom that goes with this curriculum line like there is with the Homestudy line?
A shopper on Dec 13, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Yes, there are Saxon Teacher CD-ROMs for the Math Intermediate 4 and 5 but not for Grade 3.
What is the difference between Saxon Math Intermediate 3 vs Saxon Math 3 Home Study?
A shopper on Mar 2, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Saxon Math 3 in completely scripted for every Lesson, includes prompting hands on activities and when to use flash cards, graphing, daily calendar. I Saxon Math Intermediate 3 follows the Saxon 5/4 and up model and does not include scripting.
Is the manipulative kit necessary? We are switching from a manipulative intensive program and I am wondering how manipulative intensive this program is. Thank you!
A shopper on May 19, 2016
BEST ANSWER: My daughter completed this course and only wanted manipulative when it came to division-and we used dried beans. Hope that helps!
Is this the same content as Math 3 of Saxon? we will be finishing Math 3 this year
A shopper on Apr 19, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Yes. The content is about the same, but the format is more similar to the 5/4 and then 6/5 saxon math books. I would use the intermediate 3 book for a student who will be continuing on the saxon math series and who can begin to work through concepts and notebook paper practice. You should be able to jump right in to saxon 5/4 after completing either saxon 3 ir saxon intermediate 3.
I am getting conflicting answer on whether this is Common Core aligned. Is this version aligned with Common Core standards?
User on Jan 21, 2016
BEST ANSWER: It is in line with Common Core standards - but is taught in a way that actually makes sense (compared to what schools in NY state teach anyway). You can find details on the hmhco dot com website (I can't include links in an answer). Then come back here, because Rainbow has the BEST prices and really great shipping!
Is the activity pages link still working? I can't seem to access the PDFs.

As I've been searching, I've found student books dated with the year 2006, 2007, and 2008...what edition year is this set?
Stacy H on Oct 16, 2015
BEST ANSWER: The set that we carry has its own isbn and a publication date of 2011. However, each of the components - text, solutions manual, Power Up book, and test - have a 2007 publication date.
