  8. Looking for suggestions for my DD (6th) - math seems to come naturally to her. I'm wondering what to do for 6th grade - last year she did Singapore 6 and Saxon 7/6. For this coming year I'm considering jumping her right into Jacobs Algebra w Dr Callahan. Has anyone else done this without doing Saxon 8/7 or some other pre-algebra course first? Thanks!
  9. Is there a significant difference between the first and second editions of Saxon Math 54, 65, and 76? Does anyone have a preference? I bought the used hardback student editions a couple of years ago. My daughter has been working through 54 and is on Lesson 32. I had been checking her work by working through the problems myself, which is easy enough, but to save time I recently bought a used teacher's edition for checking her answers. I noticed today that my manual is a second edition and my daughter's is a first edition. They mostly match, but some of the problems are different and her first edition has more problems per lesson. Going forward, I need to get teacher's editions to match her student editions. We currently have a mix of first and second edition student copies.
  10. My kids (4th and 2nd) have been using Math Mammoth since they came home from public school where they used Everyday Math (before the common core got a hold of it). They have been successful with it, and most of the topics come easy to them. Really, I think they can thrive with any program and in fact, they have said this to me . So we've never used Saxon but have the opportunity to attend a coop next year that uses it. I'm sort of torn... I like that Saxon has video lessons will be covered one day a week at co op I like Math Mammoth because we are familiar with it kids tolerate it and are growing ('cause what 4th grader loves math right? :laugh: ) I like the approach and the way it stretches their thoughts at times Any thoughts or advice? Really I could go either way. If we don't start Saxon now I doubt we ever will. We'll probably go with one of the MM recommended higher maths. Also, they each tested into a grade higher in Saxon and that's good because those are the only classes offered at co op now lol! (so 5th grader would be in 7/6 and 3rd grader in 5/4) the only thing my son (2nd grader) missed was the double digit by double digit multiplication which I can go over with him this summer. (edited to make more concise)
  11. My rising 9th grader will be using VT algebra, which includes algebra I & II. I am thinking of switching to Saxon Advanced Math after that, since she has been using Saxon algebra 1/2 with great success. For those of you who have experience with Saxon Advanced Math, will my dd be able to go right into the geometry section in Saxon Advanced Math since she won't have geometry background in Saxon algebra I & II? If not, will say a geometry course on khan academy or EDX (https://www.edx.org/course/introduction-geometry-schoolyourself-geometryx-1) be sufficient to fill in the gaps before she is able to handle the geometry in Advanced Math smoothly? Does the geometry section in Saxon Advanced Math covers completely different material in the geometry sections in Saxon algebra I & II or does it cover similar topics, just going deeper?
  12. Hi All, I am hoping for some pearls of wisdom here because I am really agonizing over a math decision. Here is the background. My DS is a sophomore & completed MUS Algebra 1 in 9th grade. He got a B in the class, he is not a strong math student & works hard for his grade. He had done MUS since 6th grade. Well last summer, after completing MUS algebra 1, DS decided he wants to be a nurse & get his BSN degree. Well after research we realized he will need college algebra & stats as general ed requirements & no other higher level maths. Thank goodness. So I decided he would do Saxon Algebra 1 until Thanksgiving as a quick review to solidify his algebra skills. Well long story short, he is now just finishing up Saxon Algebra 1 & it has been agony. Lessons take DS 3 hours & many test scores are in low 70's. We have talked to Art Reed on many occasions & he has been very helpful. He is having DS back up 10 lessons now & then charge forward. So here are my problems: Because I made DS repeat a class he already had on his transcript, he has no credit for math his sophomore year In our state he needs Algebra 1, Geometry, Algebra 2 & an advanced math on his transcript to graduate DS really does better to split the Saxon lesson & half but then the next book will take too long Here are my questions: In looking at MUS Algebra 2, I think DS could whip through it because it has much of the same content as Saxon Alg 1-then he could be done by the end of summer & I could put it on his transcript, should I do this? If MUS in completed through Pre-Calculus is that enough for an low average math student to be prepared for College Algebra? Should DS finish out Saxon Algebra 1 & start Saxon Algebra 2 immediately, knowing it will take 365 days of agony to complete? Would a student like this even be capable of completing the first 60 lessons of Saxon Advanced Math he would need in order to get his Geometry credit? (It sounds like this course is difficult for a good math student) At this point I'm not interested in any other math curricula. Any guidance would be so greatly appreciated. I can't wrap my head around what the appropriate thing to do is. Jean

  15. I'm looking to build a full course of physics at home for the boys. What options and materials are out there? If you taught physics at home then what did you use?
  16. Would you consider Saxon at a lower level than other math programs? I'm just wondering because I've done Saxon Alg 1 & 2 and I have friends in public school doing similar level math but they cover many concepts I've never covered or even heard of. I just want to know where Saxon stands in the world of math books :P I want to know because I may have to do a little extra math prep before college (It's senior year for me). Thank you very much!
  17. Hi! I am really looking for some guidance. My ds, 10 has a hard time with math. We used MM 3 last year and I liked it but I can't decide if I loved it. He would forget some things that we went over and I felt like I was constantly going over past topics. Has anyone else experienced this? I feel like the spiral approach in Saxon might be better for him...thoughts? Or other suggestions? Thank you so much!
  18. Hi All, I have been wondering for some time now how the WTMA math courses have been going? Yet the silence is almost deafening. Maybe I missed the memo? :D While they are still relatively new, I have been a little surprised with the lack of comments. I sort of chalk it up to a) folks not wanting to say something which might offend (e.g. had some issues) or b) not wanting seem overly excited about something which may come off as disingenuous. So, I decided to simply ask outright for some honest feedback. Knowing the thoughtfulness of this group, I would expect those sharing their real experiences to be sincere. I'm sure Susan wouldn't mind hearing both praise and constructive criticism. I'll start out with being honest regarding my take on the offerings. We are not fans of Saxon. So, that leaves us with AoPS/Singapore courses. Those I find interesting for 'some' kids. Ds went through AoPS Intro to Algebra before WTMA had courses and it was his most challenging course. I realized then that their advertising was correct. AoPS is definitely 'not' for every student. In fact, it is probably not the right fit for most students due to the level of challenge and difficulty built-in by design. So, for our younger dds, I'm not sure there would be a fit for them at the WTMA. For ds14, he is already beyond the scope of their current offerings. But still, I can't help but wonder how things are going for other families?
  19. Dd completed Saxon Alg 1/2 3rd edition last year and will be using Saxon Algebra 1 this year in 8th grade. My goal is to have her work through Saxon calculus in high school. I'm assuming that I need to decide now which edition and stick with it through high school (assuming she doesn't have problems that necessitate a complete curriculum change). I've read some of the differences, but I can't figure out which would be better for us. Which edition do you like and why?
  20. My DD9 is just now finishing Saxon 5/4. DD11 recently finished Saxon 6/5, so, since we have the book already, DD9 is going to continue on with that for the last 6 weeks of school. I knew there would be some overlap at the beginning (for review, when starting a new school year) - but since we don't need any review, I had to find the right place to start her, based on what she's studying in 5/4. There is nothing new in 6/5 until lesson 40! Can that really be true that a full 1/3 of the book is just review?? That seems disturbing - that publishers think that we need to review for a full 1/3 of the school year. Anyone else agree, or do you think this is normal?
  21. Here's my dilemma: 9th grader starting Algebra 1 and I am trying to decide b/w Saxon Algebra 1 and CLE Algebra 1. I realize CLE goes no further and there is no geometry. The draw is that CLE workbook style looks appealing and the reviews all good and much cheaper than Saxon. So what's the problem you say? Well the attraction of Saxon is that I am looking to go to Saxon for Algebra 2 and beyond. I heard that the geometry credit doesn't start until Algebra 2 and on into Advanced Math. So I am thinking to get his geometry credit it won't matter if we do another vendor for Algebra 1...right???? Or am I wrong about the geometry? Since we are looking to do last 3 yrs of math with Saxon should we just start with Saxon instead of CLE and switching? But all the Saxon components are so much more expensive than CLE. Bottom line: I want to get the geometry credit that is woven into the Saxon Algebras and I want to make sure doing CLE for Algebra 1 instead of Saxon for Algebra 1 won't confuse him. Would it be better to stay with the same vendor/style for continuity and ease of learning in the long run? If it is worth the extra money for all of that I will pay it. Thx for any advice!
  22. I'm referring to Saxon Algebra 2: An Incremental Development, Third Edition. Thank you.
  23. Edited: Saxon placement test just wasn't compatible with my computer. Got it to work on a different computer. If any of you are seeing nonsense answers, try a different computer/configuration.
  24. My oldest, currently in 6th grade, is working through CLE Math 6. Doing well with it, mostly independently. I was thinking she would switch to Saxon (that's our preference) after this year, but now I'm having 2nd thoughts. I think my biggest hesitation is that I know she wouldn't be crazy about having to re-write the problems. I read another thread on here where one person said it's maybe a good idea to start Saxon 8/7 before jumping into Algebra (in other words, don't jump into Saxon in your Algebra year). That way they're familiar with how Saxon works before getting into the harder stuff. On the other hand, if I keep her in workbook format, it looks like CLE does Pre-Algebra in two years? I really would hate to cram that all into one. I'm really even unsure about what progression math "should" take. What is the general progression of Saxon (in what grades) through high school? She gets math pretty easily so far. Anyway, I'd love to hear what others have done. :)
  25. I'm confronted with the almost definite possibility that I will have very VERY little budget for school next year. You can see the ages of my kids in my siggy. We've always homeschooled so I have a lot of books and I was able to get some IEW resources SUPER cheap during the after Thanksgiving sale. I have resources for MOST things. Math is my issue. We've used CLE math for years and I love it. . .but buying LU's plus a another set of answer keys for 4 kids next year? Dear Lord, we're talking close to $150 and it's CONSUMABLE. I really shouldn't do that. I'm looking into buying older used editions of Saxon books. I'm wondering what all I would need? Book + answer keys at least, I'm thinking. What else? And is there an easy way to make sure I get books and Answer keys the same edition so they match up? Is there a perfect place for that.
