Saxon Publishing Saxon Geometry Kit & DIVE CD-Rom, 1st Edition

Get everything you need for a successful and pain-free year of learning math! This kit includes Saxon's 1st Edition Geometry textbook, solutions manual, and test book, as well as the DIVE Geometry CD-ROM. A balanced, integrated mathematics program that has proven itself a leader in the math teaching field, Saxon Geometry covers triangle congruence, postulates and theorems, surface area and volume, two-column proofs, vector addition, slopes and equations of lines, and other high school geometry concepts.

The DIVE software teaches each Saxon lesson concept step-by-step on a digital whiteboard, averaging about 10-20 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 guide.

Please Note: This is the third printing and errors to date have been corrected.

We have used Saxon for several years, and while my own skills at Algebra have improved from having to teach it, I was really worried about Geometry, having done very poorly at it in High School. The DIVE CD has taken care of that concern. The lessons are explained in such a way that my son understands them. His only complaint is that the teacher repeats himself, but I don't consider that a problem!

My two sons have been using Saxon for a few years now & we have been pretty pleased. The DIVE CD's are a great help. The Saxon Teacher CD's are even more helpful, especially to the homeschool teacher who needs a little bit more help. I sure wish there was a Saxon Teacher for Geometry...hint, hint.
