Don't purchase this course. Our 11th graders--who have successfully finished Algebra I & II with flying colors and have completed Apologia Biology, Chemistry, and are currently succeeding in Apologia Physics--are spending HOURS trying to figure this out. The DIVE DVD is a complete waste of time and money; the instructor does nothing more than read the book. Well, we can do that. In the DIVE DVDs with the other courses, they actually work the problems and explain what is going on. The boys were independent with their other maths from Saxon. Not this one. My wife and I do not have time to spend hours helping with the course when we are homeschooling 8 children; if you are in the same boat, stay away from Saxon geometry.
For the first time in years, we are changing to a new curriculum. We will continue to use Saxon for their other maths, but not geometry. Saxon needs a major overhaul to the helps for this course.
It contains lots of integrated review problems so it helps strengthen a weak student who may have forgotten some algebra. The solutions manual shows completely worked-out problems and proofs, so it's a big help. The test schedule is convenient (every 5 lessons) and tests are included in the kit. If you photocopy the tests, you can use the whole kit over for multiple students. The text also contains construction labs (compass and straightedge exercises) so it pretty much covers everything. It contains a LOT of emphasis on logic, which I didn't expect, but that's apparently part of the latest standards of learning for geometry.
Caveats: The first edition has numerous errors in the solutions manual. The pages of the textbook are thin so they wrinkle easily, like when you lay your arm across the page.
