Out of the two, I have only used Saxon. I have used Elementary and High School Saxon. It definitely does not have all the bells and whistles, but it is good, sound math. Personally, I believe that you will have to choose for yourself based on your child. Best wishes with your school year!
So sorry to hear about your loss. Praying for your family and thank you for reminding us to think about what is important when it comes to our children.
I believe that you know if your child will become frustrated by having to write out all the lessons. I have my children do some orally and some in writing. I use the workbook if I think they need more work with a certain topic. I try to keep my children moving at a good pace, but DO require writing things out. Yet, I have learned that it's not worth the frustration to stop them midstream because I want them to write out everything. I guess we choose our battles carefully.
