Saxon does a lot of great things in presenting new material. It gives examples that are simple to understand, so the child is not scratching their head wondering what in the world is being explained. They also repeat information throughout lessons so that in a way, the child is reviewing past material regularly, so as to not forget. Therein lies the opportunity for mastery. I find it useful and helpful for the questions to have the reference to know in what chapter that material was introduced, because it offers the child a good bit of independance in working on their lesson. If they are stuck, they may refer to the chapter listed in parenthesis next to the question. This also helps teach the child to look for information on their own and not rely on the parent to be sitting next to them answering every questions. We have enjoyed going back to Saxon after using different materials. We started our homeschooling education with Saxon, went to a different curriculum in 3-5th grade, and returned back to Saxon. I made a mistake leaving Saxon. It cost us quite a bit of frustration.

There are a lot of questions for each lesson, thus making homework long. Student can focus on those review questions where more work is needed, or do odd/ even ones.

Saxon math was excellent to use when we brought home our public schooled child in 5th grade. It was close enough to public school texts but reviewed and taught so much more than the school system did. I would recommend this to anyone trying to homeschool a child with a public school history!

Saxon math is very thorough in teaching and reviewing concepts. While the lessons are lenghty, they can easily be divided over two days if this is necessary for retention. The text is quite dry and the lesson format never varies. This, along with the black and white pages covered in small print, can make for a long and boring year for those students who are already 'anti-math'. For all of those negatives, I still found it to be the best thing I could have used for my 'anti-math' daughter for pre-algebra. She was given a solid foundation in math and algebraic concepts. Sticking with this was a struggle, but well worth it. She is now doing very well in algrebra (with a different curriculum) and has a confidence we owe to Saxon 8/7.
