Saxon (teaching method)

Saxon math, developed by John Saxon, is a teaching method for incremental learning of mathematics. It involves teaching a new mathematical concept every day and constantly reviewing old concepts. Early editions were deprecated for providing very few opportunities to practice the new material before plunging into a review of all previous material. Newer editions typically split the day's work evenly between practicing the new material and reviewing old material. Its primary strength is in a steady review of all previous material, which is especially important to students who struggle with retaining the math they previously learned.

In all books before Algebra 1/2 (the equivalent of a Pre-Algebra book), the book is designed for the student to complete assorted mental math problems, learn a new mathematical concept, practice problems relating to that lesson, and solve a varied number of problems which include what the students learned today and in select previous lessons -- all for one day's class. This daily cycle is interrupted for tests and additional topics. In the Algebra 1/2 book and all higher books in the series, the mental math is dropped, and tests are given more frequently.

The Saxon math program has a specific set of products to support homeschoolers, including solution keys and ready-made tests, which makes it popular among some homeschool families. It has also been adopted as an alternative to reform mathematics programs in public and private schools. Saxon teaches familiar algorithms and uses familiar terminology, unlike many reform texts, which also contributes to its popularity.

Replacing standards-based texts

By the mid 2000s, many school districts were considering abandoning experiments with reform approaches which had not produced acceptable test scores. For example, school board member Debbie Winskill in Tacoma, Washington said that the non-traditional Interactive Mathematics Program (IMP) "has been a dismal failure." Speaking to the board, Mount Tahoma High School teacher Clifford Harris noted that he taught sophomores in another district Saxon Math, and their Washington Assessment of Student Learning scores have continually climbed. Unlike IMP, Saxon program gives students plenty of chances to review material so they retain their skills, he said. In September 2006, Tacoma Public Schools introduced the Saxon books district-wide and rejected the previous IMP textbooks.

Answers:your teacher may be the best answer. did you understand the lesson, review the samples.


Answers:What is the question????

Question:Is there a place online where I could find the answers to the tests. My little brother lost his correction book and we need to correct one of his tests before he moves on. He is in Saxon Algebra 1/2 second edition. I don't want to buy another book, just find the answers.

Answers:Post this question in the homeschool section of questions. I know quite a few homeschoolers use Saxon math!


Answers:Check the back of the book for the odd problems. OR GOOGLE !!!! LOL

Saxon Math Upper Grades :I wish all curriculum choices were as easy as this! Saxon has proven to have the best mathematics text available today. Every school in the US that has used them has raised college board scores 20% and has tripled Calculus enrollment, has doubled Physics enrollment and has reduced the number of kids on the slow track by over 50%. The reason? Normal math books introduce a new concept with each chapter, then drop that topic as the next chapter goes on to something new. This week, it's multiplication; next week it is fractions, and I can't remember multiplication! In Saxon books, the concepts are practiced daily, over and over, until they are fully automatic and math becomes easier and more enjoyable. Upper Grades 9 - 12: includes a non-consumable hardcover Textbook, Tests and Answer Key For Pre-Algebra through Calculus. Hardcover textbook has approx 125 lessons plus additional topics. Answers to odd numbered problems are in the back of the book. Approximately 500 pages. Tests and Answer Key included. The Solutions Manual (sold separately) which gives step-by-step solutions to all the practices and problems.
