Really a 5th grade level math book
on September 18, 2007
You should know that saxon math 6/5 is really a 5th grade textbook. My children's private school in Lake Tahoe uses Saxon math. Everyone does math at the same time, and the children are allowed to enter whichever level they test into. Most of my daughter's 4th grade class is using this book. My son in 2nd grade is using the 4th grade text (saxon 5/4). It is a very logical progression of concepts with much review built in. That is why children are often able to skip a whole grade level. For K, 1st, 2nd, and 3rd grade levels, there is a program, but the children work on worksheets and not from textbooks.
Overall, a great program, but if your child is even slightly above average in math, consider going up one level.
