My 12 year old daughter is completing Saxon 8/7 this year. It has been a struggle. Math is not her subject (she is very language oriented/creative.) However, she has done okay- just retaining all of the concepts introduced has been difficult.
I am struggling with what Math to move to next year for 8th grade. I *think* I want to stick with Saxon because it seems thorough, but I am open.
I have toyed with the idea of going straight to Algebra 1, as the algebraic concepts seem to be more readily understood by her and it would give us ample time to move slowly through the book. I could always move back to Pre-Algebra if needed.
Any advice? Thanks!
