After trying multiple math curricula both in the public school arena and in home schooling our son, we were amazed by the ease of teaching with Saxon math. The textbook proper is broken down into 120 lessons, 20 tests and the occasional investigation. Each day the child reviews a "math facts" worksheet, which is basically a drill page of 40-60 math facts, either addition, subtraction, multiplication or division. We were amazed at what the repetition of these math facts did for our son, both in math skill and in confidence. The goal is to do each one in 5 minutes or less, and he loves to time himself to continue improving his score! After the math facts come mental math, 7-10 questions that you do with your child in your head. They are easy enough that it is not too challenging, and the math book teaches you the tricks of how to do math in your head as you work through the curriculum.

My favorite part of the curriculum is the way they teach each subject. Having successfully completed math classes through Calculus II in college, I never considered myself to have trouble with math. But some of the curricula we used for math had me scratching my head trying to understand what they wanted our son to do. Saxon breaks down each piece of math into small, bite-sized pieces. Each lesson explains one small piece and the student then practices that piece. After every new subject, my son says "that sure is easy." The other thing I really like about Saxon is the way they continue to review past subjects until they are mastered...and I mean mastered! In each lesson there are 7-12 new problems on the new topic. Then there is a 30 problem work set that reviews old concepts so that he doesn't forget how to do things.

You should purchase this book if you already have one complete kit and you are teaching more than one student, like I do.

The 3 stars are not targeted at the content, which is FIVE STARS in my view, but at the VERY CONFUSING marketing of these items. The cover of this book says Saxon Math Homeschool (sic!) but this is ONLY the Student/Teacher Text. You will not be able to teach your child math if all you buy is this book.

There should be THREE items in a complete package: a Student/Teacher manual (this one), the Solutions manual and the (reproducible) Tests and Worksheets. If you have one kid, buy the COMPLETE kit. If you have 2 or more kids, you should buy one complete kit and as many extra student/teacher books, such as this one, as you may need. If you do not have the ability to copy the worksheets, which is LEGAL, then you should also order additional Tests and Worksheets books. However, for one child, you will end up paying A LOT more if you bought these items individually.

Having 2 kids, and this is my experience for the past 5 years, from 3d to 7th grade, I order the complete kit from an education bookseller or from Amazon if I could find it here and an extra textbook from Amazon or one of the alternative sellers supported by Amazon.

By the way, Saxon's Math works. I am not a home schooler because I have a full-time job but I've been using it with my kids since 3d grade as a Math booster and I am happy with their A's. Besides math, children acquire some discipline, study skills, test-taking skills and, me having 2 'students', they learn to compete as well.

I have used Saxon with my son (6th grade) for the past 3 years and my daughter (4th grade) for the past 2. Prior to that we used Singapore. We have also tried maybe 5 or 6 online courses. The online stuff just didn't work for my kids. Could just be a personality thing. Singapore was ok but just did not provide enough practice.

I like the way each Saxon lesson is structured, starting with some mental math, then introducing some new skill/information/idea, followed by a short series of practice problems based on the newly introduced stuff, finally followed by 20-30 mixed practice problems. The mixed practice includes problems based on the new material, but the majority are based upon earlier lessons. It is great because it provides ongoing practice to reinforce the learning of those earlier lessons. When we were doing the Singapore course, my son would learn it just fine and then the course would move on to new topics, but since there was no ongoing practice, he would quickly forget what he had learned.

As an aside, my son had to do state mandated testing last year and scored in the 96 percentile in math (he had never taken a test before) so I am confident stating that Saxon Math can do a very good job.

I have purchased the various supporting books over the years (solutions manual, testing book, etc...) Some people apparently find they need those. I have found that we only use the student text and the others just gather dust on the bookshelves. So now I only purchase the student text. If that works for you you can save some money...and perhaps a tree or two. I am not sure I fully understand the numbering scheme, but I believe the second number (in this case, the 6 in 7/6) represents the grade. In any case, that seems to work for us.
