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 3 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 money, metric length and volume, measurement, bar graphs, line plots, fractions, length and weight, time and temperature, shapes, area and perimeter, and more; and student workbook that provides practice, assessment and skill-development exercises

I have found Saxon Math to be very thorough. I have used Saxon 1, 2, 3 and 5/4 now. Thus far, we have been very pleased with the curriculum. It allows me, the teacher to move a quickly or as slowly as the student needs. I am able to use the tests and assessments included in the student workbook to determine where to place the child and to even skip ahead if needed so that valuable time is not spent on things already mastered. The Teachers Manual is able to be reused with other students, but we always purchase a new workbook for each new student. The price of the workbooks are very reasonable.

We used four other math curricula in the course of 15 years of homeschooling. I looked at Saxon Math when our oldest was in the 5th grade and didn't think I could do it. I was wrong. After years of struggling with other math programs I made the switch for our two smallest in 1st grade. We have used the Saxon Math for three years now and it has made a big difference in how we look at Math. I would highly recommend this curriculum. There is no DVD from Saxon for k-3, but starting in 4/5 you can purchase one. There is a company called Destination Math that has an online program that runs right with the Saxon Math. Just for the record, Math was not my best subject when I was in school. So those first years of teaching were a struggle for me to try to teach something I had a hard time understanding. Saxon Math has helped me while I have been teaching. It's very easy to follow and one of the few subjects that I actually follow very closely by the teacher's book.

I really appreciate how the curriculum tells the teacher exactly what they can say and what response to expect so that I could explain it clearly for a struggling learner.

We just switched to Saxon month a few months ago. I have a daughter who really doesn't like math. I took her to Mardel's and let her choose a math program (I got final approval rights. ;) ) She surprised me and picked Saxon. It is extremely black and white and not like the colorful books we have used before. She loves it so far and seems to be grasping the concepts. We didn't buy the manipulatives as I had a lot of them at home already (from other math programs we've used.) I can't really give this an excellent review as we are still new into it.

I really enjoy this curriculum, because it is constantly reviewing what the student has learned, making it easier to remember concepts.

This curriculum was perfect for my sons needs at the moment. He did go through the years worth of work very quickly, but he has a real thirst for math. My son wanted a few math games added to suppliment his text work. It is a good curriculum.
