Saxon Math Curriculum Review

Saxon Math is considered to be one of the most popular and complete homeschooling math programs on the market. Learning is introduced incrementally and new concepts are continually reviewed.

Saxon's K-3 programs have non-consumable teacher's manuals that contain scripted lessons plans and information that is necessary to teach the program. The early grades are teacher-intensive. In the early years, student workbooks, flash cards, and practice pages are used. Manipulatives are an integral part of the program in kindergarten through third grade.

In the middle and high school grades, the texts are non-consumable and are written to the student. Texts, tests, worksheets, and solution manuals can be purchased separately or as part of a homeschool kit. As in the earlier grades, the middle and high school program covers concepts in a spiral fashion.

Starting with Math 54, Saxon has a slightly different numbering pattern than most other math programs for the middle grades. For instance, Math 54 is suitable for average fifth graders, or advanced fourth graders (or those who have already finished the Saxon Math 3 program). Algebra ½ is considered to be a pre-algebra program. Starting in Math 54, many students are able to start working independently.

Until recently, no independent geometry program was available for high school as geometry was covered incrementally in Algebra I, Algebra II, and Advanced Mathematics. There is now a Geometry course available, however geometry is still covered in the programs mentioned above. Calculus includes analytical geometry. The addition of the new geometry program allows educators to develop a variety of different math sequences for students.

If completing Algebra I, Algebra II, Advanced Mathematics, and Calculus, Saxon's separate Geometry program is not needed. The program is available for grades K-12.
