This math curriculum is wonderful, but the description here is not very helpful. It is called the "Math 3 Home Study Kit -- Teacher's Edition. The Home Study Kit includes the student workbooks and the teacher's manual. However, if you order this item, you will receive the Home Study Teacher's Edition (teacher's manual) only. This is not a kit -- but it is a great way to teach math to your third grader.

I love this curriculum. I'm using it again for my son. It has the number facts in a color combination that logically groups them, making them easier to memorize. This is priceless.
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.

I purchased this book as part of the homeschool kit (includes the worksheets, meeting book, flashcards, etc.). We are now up to Lesson 40 and we're both ready to be done with this book. If your child is pretty good at math by the end of grade 2, I would recommend bypassing this all together and go on to Saxon Intermediate 3 or 5/4. I chose this program because, although my son is very good at math, he had not completely memorized his math facts by the end of 2nd grade. I've found that this program is SO teacher intensive. We spend at least 45 minutes to an hour a day on this program. I'm juggling a toddler as well which makes this program especially difficult.

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.

I have been homeschooling my kids for 6 yrs. Now I have 3 grades I'm teaching. I could not do it without the Saxon Math program, by far the best laid out program I have ever used. For beginner homeschool teachers this is the program to use. Not a book to give your child and tell them to do it. I love the meeting part its very repetitious but yet every day adds more of what they have learned. My kids can count quickly and multiply without a struggle. It helps Math become second nature to them. Make sure you get the Teachers, the Meeting and the Work book. Follow the teachers guide and you will see your kids math scores jump. Thank you Saxon for such a great program.

You will need more than just book. You will also want the workbooks and other parts of the kit. This is just the Teacher's Edition.

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.

Total rip off. Save your money. You do not need this meeting book. I was told not to get it by a friend but felt I was missing out. Use a regular calander. Trust me , before you spend .15.00 on something you will regret.

You will need to purchase the student workbook, however, some of us are selling ours here as complete Teacher's kit including Teacher's Book, Meeting Book and Flash Cards..... However, after using course for two of my children I became tired of copying the worksheets so I just used the Student book up..... Under this ISBN # some of us have listed complete Teacher's Kit with Meeting Book and Flash Cards, you just have to scroll to page 3 and on to view them..... Loved the course and still using Saxon today, only at High school level now...
