  1. I am considering Saxon Math and I would like to know which DVDs are preferred?
  2. Just want your opinions on what CD's/DVD's have helped you to teach Saxon Algebra I. What is your preference: Saxon Teacher, DIVE, or Art Reed? From the reviews that I have found online, Saxon Teacher seems to be the most well liked. But, I would like to hear from you. Any thoughts would be appreciated. Still thinking and praying, Blessings, Brenda:001_smile:
  3. Hi, all! I am looking ahead for a good middle grade and up math curriculum. I am currently using Saxon, but I noticed that the Saxon Teacher cds are very expensive if bought along with the homeschool kit. Teaching Textbooks is around $40-50 cheaper, but is it worth it? What are the strengths of each? Where are the weaknesses? Any input or experience with these is welcome! I want to make the best informed decision that I can. :-)
  4. Just wanted to say how much we are getting out of the art reed dvds. Dd has been going through them reviewing various topics that have given her some difficulty. She has had many"ah ha" moments with older material and the new material is much easier for her to understand. I will be using his dvds for Adv Math next year for sure!!
  5. I was reading a bit about the Art Reed and the Teaching Technology DVDs today, but would love some real life feedback before we make the purchase. We have the DIVE CDs, but my daughter really dislikes them. Without a person in them, she disengages. We've looked at the Art Reed sample of Lesson 50 and like it. I tried to look at a Teaching Tape sample, but the link most be broken. I'm attracted to those b/c every problem is worked out, but they are so much more expensive. Can you help me decide?
  6. What are the differences? I'll be purchasing one or the other to go with Saxon Pre-Algebra. Until recently I didn't know there were two choices (or more?) Any input?
  7. Can someone comment about whether or not Saxon Math has been rewritten in recent years and "dumbed down" in order to be placed in mainstream public/private schools?
  8. Trying to determine what would be a better fit. Can you compare/contrast? Or can you tell me pros/cons about the choice you picked? Thanks!
  9. Which would you recommend to help with teaching Saxon Math? So far, I've found: DIVE Art Reed and the "official" CD's Saxon puts out. Thanks! Jennifer
  10. One of my ds will be starting Saxon Alg. 1 in the fall. I've been trying to decide on a CD/DVD for him to use at times when Dad is not available. Quite honestly I am of no use in the higher math dept. I'm wondering if anyone has actually used any of the Mastering ___"John Saxon's Way" DVDs which are taught by Art Reed? I have viewed the sample lesson on the Mastering site, but it is difficult to get a feel for it. I understand that Art Reed has taught Saxon math for 20 some odd years, but how is he as an instructor? Was he clear in his instructions, did he seem to explain the whys of things vs do it this way? Did your dc quietly say to themselves, "OMG, if I have to watch this guy one more time I think I'm going to loose my mind?" Or, did they instead say, "This guy is great, he explanations are so clear and helpful." I have used the DIVE CD's in the past and have seen the Saxon Teacher CD's. To me, they are virtually identical, except that the Saxon uses the problems in the book vs similar problems. While the DIVE gets the job done, it certainly is not the most exciting of things to listen to. TIA
  11. Looking to add some DVD instruction to math next year. Any reviews for different programs? Likes and dislikes? Thanks :001_smile:
  12. If you had a choice between these Algebra programs, which would you pick and why? BJU Algebra w/DVDs Chalkdust Algebra w/Mosely DVDs (an Amazon 4th ed piecemeal version...not the 'official' Chalkdust one) Saxon Algebra w/DIVE I have them all at my disposal, and I am stumped on which one to use. This ds is an average math student who has great hopes of going to college. I need to make the right choice for him...and that 'right choice' is absolutely paralyzing me. :glare: A little history: He used mainly BJU from 4th grade until 7th. In 7th we moved to CLE and he has been using CLE since. He likes the constant review of CLE, which makes me wonder if he would be one of those students who do well with Saxon. I personally despise Saxon, as did my older boys. I really like the (Chalkdust) Mosely DVDs, or at least the ones I have watched. He explains things well and the DVD's are not quite as long as the BJU ones. I'm not familiar with the textbook though. My olders used BJU Algebra and liked it. I don't recall how much review it contains as I have it lent out right now and won't get it back till summer. So, if YOU had the choice between these programs for your average math student, which are all good solid Alg choices, what would YOU choose? :confused:
  13. I love Saxon math and my kids after trying many other programs have decided the love it to. I have no trouble teaching K-3 because of the scripted TMs, I don't follow them word for word, but they give me a guide. I love how Saxon teaches, but my oldest has trouble if just handed the book to do on his own. He misses that teacher interaction, so I bought the Art Reed DVDs. We tried TT in the past and although he did ok, he just didn't like the "magic notebook" look of it. He wanted a real teacher. He likes watching Art, but asked if I'd do what Art does (he really wants the time with me to ask questions as we go along and do more examples than are on the DVD or in the book) So I've started watching Art at night or in the morning before lessons and taking notes, then I present the lesson to my son at our big whiteboard. I love teaching my son, but I love math and it comes naturally to me, so sometimes I would go off on a rabbit trail and really confuse him or I wouldn't do a very good job of explaining it because it's just intuitive/second nature to me. Art helps me to know what to cover and just how far to go. I'm not a teacher by training or anything (I was a medical secretary) so these DVDs have been a huge help. My son is really starting to love math, which is making me happy as a clam. For those looking for an affordable way to get a teaching DVD for saxon with a real teacher or if you're looking for someone to help you teach saxon to you kids, I think Art's DVDs are amazing. The set was $49.95 and I got 11 DVDs (1 was an introduction and the other 10 contain the lessons)
  14. My dd in 7th grade is using this math independently. It takes her about an hour and a half up to 2 hours to complete math most days, that includes doing all of the problems, the timed math sheet, the mental math, and reading the lesson. She does well and even gets 100's on most of her math tests. Does the amount of time she spends seem unreasonable? I have always thought she should be moving quicker through each lesson. I know someone whose son completes a whole lesson in less than an hour. My dd is one that likes to think through everything in a very meticulous way. So much at times that she drives me crazy. I'd appreciate your feedback. Thanks!
  15. My oldest ds is finishing up Mammoth Math this school year and I'm looking ahead to next year. I really think he'd prefer Saxon, though we've never used it before. The "puzzle-ness" of MM really makes him crazy, though he keeps going because I ask him to. He would prefer straight forward facts. Amount of work doesn't bother him. Since he'll be in 8th grade, I just feel that I need to make a decision for the long haul and stick with it. I'm thinking Saxon 8/7 would be a good place to start. I know that there are families for whom Saxon didn't work, but does he sound like it would? I know that math is discussed a LOT around here (and I've read almost all of it), but I appreciate anyone talking through with me. Thanks so much.
  16. There's a book out titled "Using John Saxon's Math Books " Here's a link to an article about it at The Old Schoolhouse. http://thehomeschoolmagazine.com/Homeschool_Reviews/2339.php
  17. After Saxon 76, did you do 87 or Algebra 1/2? I've heard 87 on this board, but WTM recommended 1/2 if I remember correctly? What are the differences?
  18. We've been using Saxon from the beginning and have been happy with it.. it's a good fit for us. But.. I am just mulling over what happens when my kids get to the stage, in a few years time, when they come to do high school math and there's effectively an extra year to be completed, now that Saxon have separated Geometry into an individual course. How do you fit this in? Is it supposed to be done after Algebra 1, or 2? If Saxon have simply taken the Geometry work out of Algebra 1, 2, and Advanced Math, is it possible to do all four courses over three grades? Thanks in advance for your thoughts.
  19. I am trying to figure out what I should use for my sons- I have been using Saxon Algebra - my oldest has had a really hard time while his younger brother (who is 2yrs younger) is whizzing through is brothers book- Should I seperate the two and put one in Geometry and the other in Advanced Algebra? And has anyone worked with the DVD's are they a help and which ones did you use- We have the Teacher's cd-roms and while it helps my oldest he gets bored with them- is there something else out there that would help but is short and sweet? Thanks L
  20. I am considering purchasing these DVDs and was wondering if anyone here had tried them, and if so, what you thought of them. Thanks!
  21. I. HATE. MATH. I hate math decisions. I hate math curriculums! I finally found something that my dd likes (and can do!) CLE math, and the series doesn't go any further than 8th. I'm looking for something like CLE, but for algebra. I didn't consider CLE's algebra since it hasn't been revised and I believe it's just Alpha Omega Life Pacs. Any advice? Anyone???
  22. Trying to determine what would be a better fit. Can you compare/contrast? Or can you tell me pros/cons about the choice you picked? Thanks!
  23. My Dd is in 9th and working through Saxon Alg 1/2. She did CD pre-alg last year and we tried CD Alg 1 this fall, which was a bomb, so we started Saxon Alg 1/2. She is on lesson 67 and math has been taking her longer and longer do complete each day. Today she has been working for over two hours and is still not finished. She is getting a large % wrong each day, which we do correct. I have the Art Reed DVD's plus my 17 yo helping her. She just isn't getting it. I have no clue what to do at this point. We have 12 weeks of school left so I don't really want to start a new program right now, but I can't see continuing at this pace either. I purchased Saxon Alg 1 for fall but I don't see her being able to move up to that. I am open to any suggestions.
  24. I am wondering how you use these? Does your student watch the DVD's and then read and do the lesson in the book? Or, does your student read the lesson in the book and then watch the DVD's and then do the problems? I guess I am just wondering how exactly to go about using these? Thanks for any help you can give me, Tami
