Bought this to work with my son who was struggling in math, and this was the text used at his private school, and he often failed to bring it home. Saxon keeps reviewing old concepts and then adds a few problems of new concept each day. It is good for preventing the student to not forget the earlier concepts, but it moves forward before they are proficient at solving the previous concepts. While this style of learning worked for my other children, it made math frustrating and agonizing for my youngest who struggled for hours each night grinding through multiple concepts he never really learned well as the constant mix kept him confused. We have since pulled him out of that school and he is doing better in a suburban public school where they use a curriculum that has the student learn and practice a single concept well before moving to the next. Also, at times, Saxon would fail to fully explain a concept before throwing a "curve ball". Perhaps it was to get the student to think, but it was so often, it just frustrated my son. I don't think much of many modern text books as they want you to explain your answer. My son felt this was a waste of time and so do I. Teachers just have time to grade right or wrong though perhaps knowing why a mistake was made could be valuable if the student knows how to describe the process he used (something I'd have trouble to do!) and often there is no explanation why 2+2=4, it is just a law of math. Probably government influence on the curriculum there. No wonder we are falling behind the rest of the world! (sorry, personal commentary).This book is no worse than many others in that respect, but I'd recommend seeking a curriculum that suits your child's learning style if you are choosing a curriculum.Read more ›

Exactly as described.
I purchased the same text book my daughter has in her classroom so she doesn't have to haul this heavy book to and from school everyday. This has really paid off.
Worth every penny!

This book is used by my daughter's 4th grade and I am impressed with the chapters and the exercises. The exercises are the one that kindles student's desire and motivate them to think. The Early Finisher part of exercises are in fact more stimulating, but often overlooked by the students as they are 'bonus' materials. I am quoting few problems below from SAXON MATH Vol 2:

1. 0.09 * 0.4
2. 3/8 div 1/2
3. 11/12 - 2/3
4. Jess took a poll of students in a class to find out how many items they put in their backpack. The data below shows the result
3, 2, 5, 5, 8, 4, 3, 4, 7, 2, 4, 8, 5, 10, 5

Plot them in a line plot. fine median, mode and range of the data.

My son's school uses this. It's a good 5th grade math book. We purchased one for my son to keep at home b/c it makes his backpack so heavy.

This book was very helpful. We used it over the summer between 5th and 6th grade as a review to keep our daughter current on last years math skills.

Initially I was skeptical about buying a used book as I was unsure what the real condition would be. However, I was pleasantly surprised and very pleased with the purchase. The book was half the price other online venues were selling the same used book and it was in very good condition. I would recommend purchasing from this company again. Great buy!
