Description of Math In Focus 2nd Semester Kit by Saxon/Harcourt

Saxon’s Math in Focus program is the American version of the highly popular and successful Singapore Approach to mathematics. This approach places strong emphasis on problem-solving and model-drawing skills, with definitions of core math concepts explained in extremely simple terms.

Instructional advantages to the Math in Focus program include paced instruction for optimum mastery of concepts, consistent use of visual models and manipulatives for concrete/abstract awareness, and problem-solving methods that help students visualize and understand math concepts.

This Grade 5 Second Semester Homeschool Kit includes a teacher’s guide with objectives, materials lists, step-by-step teaching instructions and reduced student pages with correct answers to practice problems; student textbook that covers decimals, multiplying and dividing decimals, percents, graphs and probability, angles, properties of triangles and four-sided figures, three-dimensional shapes, surface area, volume, and real-life problems; and student workbook that provides practice, assessment and skill-development exercises.

I really like the manipulatives available with other math curricula since I am very visual and it was easier to explain the concepts.

I used to use Saxon years ago and for some reason we chose to venture out and try other options such as math u see, switched on school house, video text, singapore math (I can't remember if we tried others). After 13 years of homeschooling I have to say there is no other foundational math I would ever consider using in the k-6 range other than saxon. Some say it is repetitive........but I find the children need reinforcement. If there is anything that the child does not learn in saxon it is not due to the curriculum. I wanted to mention we always had high test scores when using saxon as well. We usually used the level higher than where the child should be (for instance....my child is in 5th grade we would start with the 6th grade equivalent.

People may complain about the repetition, but you are not required to do every question. We often do only the odd-numbered problems. Buy from Rainbow Resources for a better price.

Saxon math is easy to use. I find the constant reinforcement of concepts and gradually introdection of new concepts to work well with my son.

In the Saxon Math my favorite thing with how it was set up was with each problem there was a page number in () that would direct you/or the student to the place in the text where the concept was taught. That alone made this curriculum easy for my children to 'teach' themselves and for me to reference if need be when extra help was needed. Also didn't feel like they went over board with the 'amount' of problems they gave to teach a concept.
