The teacher manual is straightforward and lays out plainly and completely. You will NOT be stressed and you will NOT be left wondering if you missed teaching something. The incremental (reviewed) practices leave no room for failure. Lessons are given in script format. The parent/teacher is given what to say. Step by step.
This program has very good repetition, but in many instances it's just too much repetition. I've starting skipping portions all-together. The clock and coin portions of our daily meeting are way too easy. My son has been counting piles of coins for years now. I do love the daily 45 sec timed worksheets. I really think that they are helping my son memorize his addition facts. This program has a worksheet that is done with the teacher, and then you turn it over and they do the other (almost exact same) side later in the day (by themselves). My son has long since mastered these worksheets, but still he does them day in and day out. I have to say, we are both very bored with this program.
UPDATE: We ended up taking a month break from this program and came back to it more refreshed. We removed redundant steps as needed and finished the year. This program has some good points and some bad points. Hence the 3 star review.
Having said that, Saxon Math program is very good.
It does not work straight through covering one topic until it is completed and then introducing the next. In other words it does not teach all of the addition facts and then how to carry and then introduce subtraction etc. It works in a repetitive manner.
This means your child will continually going back to review what has been already covered. There are short verbal and written assessments to ensure that your child continues to maintain what has been learned. One negative is that if you do find your child misses a section there are no directions on what lessons to redo.
It does expect you to memorize math facts. There are many reasons to memorize math facts but there is very little explanation about why you might want to do this in the book. The facts are presented in a logical formation and they also provide help in learning to solve math facts; such as the doubles plus one rule.
For a homeschooler this is a great book. It provides a logical method of teaching math.
