Saxon Math High School Review

Saxon Math (High School)

What is Saxon Math?

(From the publisher) Saxon Math for students in grades K–12 that uses an incremental approach to instruction and assessment. A top choice for homeschoolers, Saxon’s incremental approach is one of the most effective teaching methods; learning pieces of information in small amounts, and then continually repeating concepts keeps knowledge and skills fresh.

Available for grades/level Algebra 1/2 (pre-algebra) through Calculus.

Our Review of Saxon Math High School

Updated Review last updated 2/13/2024

Our family began using Saxon Math when our oldest (currently 25 as of February 2024) was elementary school aged. After using Saxon Math K, we stopped in favor of Singapore Math. The kids found Saxon K-3 Saxon too boring. We switched back to Saxon at the 5/4 level and our oldest kids used Saxon all the way through Calculus. In my opinion, Saxon is a more advanced/rigorous program versus Teaching Textbooks (which we now use with our younger kids) and will serve your child well if they plan on going to college.

Not a math whiz? Me neither. A common question I have been asked over the years is how do I teach high school level math. Honest answer? I don’t. We utilized DIVE with Saxon.

(From the publisher) The DIVE software teaches each Saxon lesson concept step-by-step on a digital whiteboard, averaging about 10-15 minutes in length; because each lesson is stored separately, you can easily move about from lesson-to-lesson as well as maneuver within the lesson you’re watching. DIVE teaches the same concepts as Saxon but does not use the problems given in the text; it cannot be used as a solutions manual.
