X-Post from HS Board - Math recommendations?

Recommended Posts

Dd is 13 / finishing up 7th grade. We have been using Saxon since Saxon 3, progressing through 5/4, 6/5, 7/6 and now Algebra 1/2. She has been becoming increasingly frustrated with Saxon's approach - in her words, Saxon does a great job explaining the "how", but not the "why" of math problems. She is one who needs a better explanation of the "why" (and I'm not math-oriented enough to explain it to her!)


So. I promised her I'd come ask for some suggestions. I don't tend to like to switch curriculum - but, it appears that this one is not working for us, and I'm willing to look around. I'm looking for next year, Algebra One, and beyond.


Thanks so much!
