  1. I'm looking for the confidence to purchase Saxon Algebra and use it without the DVDs. My oldest used VideoText Algebra and it was a wonderful fit but my son is having a difficult time with it. I would like to use Saxon as I think the Spiral method is a good fit for him, but many reviews seem to list the DVDs as if they are necessary. I would love to hear from someone (preferably with multiple children) who successfully taught their child with Saxon Math and did NOT use the DVDs or other Video teaching. Was it difficult and time consuming? How involved were you? Thanks in advance fo
  2. Hi all! I could really use some help with choosing a curriculum for my 12 y/o daughter. We've done RightStart A-F. I'm considering doing RightStart Levels G and H for middle school. I like the independence of it, and I like that it integrates other math concepts.... Still not sure about waiting 2 years to start algebra though. She's not especially "mathy", but RightStart has laid a good foundation for her in regards to number sense and understanding math concepts and she is doing well overall with her math work. I'm also considering Math U See pre-algebra, but like any curriculum I've seen mix
  3. 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 deci
  4. My 8yo son is currently using Horizons 3rd grade math. We both like the worksheets and that it has built in review. He's moving through it fine, but I feel like we're reaching a point where he is looking for more of the "why" not just the "how". I'm not looking to abandon the curriculum entirely, but I'm looking for something to add to round out the conceptual side of math that I feel is lacking. I've seen a lot of people talking positively about RightStart, Singapore (I see there are 2 options, Dimensions Math and Primary Math - happy to hear about both of these), and Math in Focus and
  5. I’m switching one of my kids to Saxon 5/4. We did the first lesson today and I’d read the intro and set a timer for 5 minutes to do the Math Fact page listed in the warm up. She did that, we continued with the warm up and did the mental math and the word problem, then we did the lesson and all the practice problems. But now that I think about it, I’m second guessing myself. She did nowhere near all the facts on the sheet. She just worked for 5 minutes. I figure over time and daily practice she’ll increase. In other places the instructions say to do all the problems, which we did in the wa

  7. 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!
  8. 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 o
  9. I would love to hear your take on Maria Miller's opinion on Saxon: http://homeschoolmath.blogspot.com/2...axon-math.html Have you found what she talks about to be true? Do your kids understand the why behind the math, or do they just know how to do it? I'm not really wondering about the difference between mastery vs. spiral as much as I am about how the topics are actually presented, if that makes sense. I'm especially interested in hearing about the upper levels.
  10. We have used MUS up to this year. My older two went to Teaching Textbooks. We all love it. It has made my life easier. I needed to find more time in my day and that has helped. Next year I would like to have my youngest boy in TT 3. We will have another baby by then and it will help a lot! My youngest son is in Grade 2. He is doing MUS Alpha. It's going ok. He is on Lesson 7. We just started it recently and he is doing about 2 lessons a week. My plan is to do as much as that and MUS Beta before the fall of 2011. Then move on to TT 3. BUT:tongue_smilie: he is an easily frus
  11. 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?
  12. 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
  13. 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 you
  14. I'm wondering your opinion about the math program you're using and why you chose it. The programs that seem to be popular are Math-u-see, Singapore, and Rightstart, but without access to the actual curriculum, it's difficult to choose. My daughter is six in August and we will be beginning first grade this year. Last year we used Saxon K. Thank you for your help! Jani
  15. Could you give your reasons why you do/don't? Also what curriculum are you using now if you aren't using Saxon anymore?:) My mom wants to use Saxon algebra 1 and their new geometry course this year for math, she doesn't want me to do the "Saxon order". My mom wants me to take seperate course for the PSAT this year (10th grade). I have completed algebra 1, but my mom wants me to stick with reviewing and I think Saxon has that.
  16. We are in the middle of deciding on a math curriculum for our family and could use some input. We have a 2nd grader and a kinder that we will be schooling this year and have it narrowed down to pretty much Saxon or Abeka for math. We started our new 2nd grader on Abeka across the board when she started school and were really pleased with it. This will be our first year taking a more classical approach to their lessons and so we are looking at new curriculum across the board. I have heard great things about both and actually I had Saxon at the private Christian school I attended in middle schoo
  17. Ds is slowly but surely approaching the end of Saxon 6/5... He will start with 7/6 in August. I am wondering whether skipping the last 20 or even 10 lessons in 6/5 is reasonable? In this case I could have him slow down to 2-3 lessons a week over the next month or so, and then switch him to 7/6 directly. Otherwise we'll keep up the speed of 5 lessons a week and the go directly into 7/6... I would not consider this if there was a break betweenthe two levels, but in both options he is going to work through anyways... (which I want, because of "attitude reasons";)... Thanks for your thoughts!
  18. I'm contemplating a switch to Saxon for my son starting into the upper levels (probably start with 76 or 87) and continuing through Alg 1,2 and Adv. Math. I keep reading that Saxon is great for some but horrible for others. How do you know what type of child you have? What type of child is Saxon a good fit for? What kind of child is Saxon typically a poor fit for? My ds has actually asked to do Saxon based on the samples but I'm trying to speculate whether Saxon would work with his learning style or not (after I figure out what his learning style is:D). Also, if you are using it a
  19. After using Saxon 1 lightly with my 2nd dd for K this year, I am thinking it is not going to be a good fit for her. My oldest went through Saxon 1-3 and has done very well with it, however she is more of a perfect paula, while #2 is a wiggly willy. I made some adjustments to the way I used Saxon to break up the lessons and change the scenery, but it didn't seem like it was enough. I think she would do better with shorter lessons and more visually appealing pages. I have stopped using Saxon and have been doing various math games with her, and for the most part, she enjoys that. I am not really
  20. For my third grader I was all set to use Bob Jones but need to wait until we can afford it. Right now everything Saxon is on sale at CBD. Saxon 3rd grade is on sale for $64.00 for the home study kit. Can someone please compare these two 3rd grade math programs for me. Thank you!
  21. I'm wondering which math programs people are partial to. We use CLE and love it, however, as the children get into upper math(in a few years), I would like to have teaching DVDs to help them. I feel that I would not do the math justice. I know there are several options with Saxon....any thoughts on those? I've looked at Teaching textbooks, but felt that it was too light compared to what they are used to. The 5th grade examples were on par with the 3rd grade work in CLE. What about BJU? Don't they have DVDs? Thanks!
  22. You mentioned to Kristi that if a child is getting an A in Saxon, it is working. But I've read that Saxon is not creative and challenging enough, so it would seem that an A in Saxon may still not mean much. If a child can go from Saxon to another math program, and make an A in that program, or take a standardized test and score high, is that an accurate gauge of whether she truly understands math? I'm trying to figure out how to know if Saxon really is doing the job. Some posters seem pleased with Saxon, like Linda, and some criticize it heavily. Does it just depend on the student? Fo
  23. I am considering purchasing these DVDs and was wondering if anyone here had tried them, and if so, what you thought of them. Thanks!
  24. 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???
  25. 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!
