Laurie Posted February 29, 2008 Share Posted February 29, 2008 Yesterday may not have been a good day for me to visit this board! I was too chicken to post when I saw the "rigor" discussion, but I really need some help. I need to make a decision about math for my ds. He's finishing up Saxon 8/7, and this is the first year that we've used the Dive cd's. I had planned on continuing with Saxon into Algebra 1, although I would be interested in trying the Teaching Tape dvds instead of Dive. After reading some posts over here, I'm also interested in the Chalkdust Math series. Right now, ds and I read through the Saxon lesson together, and we sometimes use the Dive cd for reinforcement. Then my ds does all the practice problems, we check those, then he moves on to the assignment and we check it when he's finished (and most or all are correct). Dh can help out in the evening if ds and I get stuck on something. As for me, if I didn't go through the lessons with ds to refresh my memory I probably wouldn't be able to help him! Even if we switch to dvd-based lessons, I'll be watching them along with ds. I've looked at the demos for both the Saxon and Chalkdust dvds. Would there be any problem going from Saxon 8/7 to Chalkdust Algebra 1? Or, if anyone has used the dvds along with Saxon, what did you think of them? Thanks for your help!
