Saxon is the nation’s most comprehensive and most thoroughly researched homeschool math program, with more than 30 years of proven success. Saxon mathematics for grades K–12 is based on the teaching principles of incremental development, continual practice and review, and cumulative assessment.
When John Saxon created his original math text in 1979, his vision was for a teaching method to help students better understand math. Since then, the program has been augmented with features to help you at every level.
Saxon’s K-3 program is designed to teach basic arithmetic concepts as well as geometry, patterns, time, and more. Each lesson is scripted for the parent, which takes the guesswork out of teaching young learners. Manipulatives accelerate understanding of abstract math concepts, and worksheets provide cumulative review.
Saxon Math for middle grades transitions students from manipulatives and worksheets to a textbook approach. The emphasis in the middle grades is on developing algebraic reasoning as well as geometric concepts. Lessons include a new concept plus a review of previous concepts, and Investigations give students a more in-depth treatment of math concepts. Available for middle and upper grades, a Solutions Manual gives step-by-step solutions for all problems in the book.
Saxon’s high school texts prepare students for college and beyond. Like the middle grades, the upper grades program offers a textbook, tests, and a Solutions Manual. Homeschool kits are available for Algebra 1, Algebra 2, Geometry, Advanced Math, and Calculus.
