Saxon Publishing Saxon Algebra 2 Kit & DIVE CD-Rom, Third Edition

Get everything you need for a successful and pain-free year of learning math! This kit includes Saxon's 3rd Edition Algebra 2 textbook and tests/worksheets book & answer key, as well as the DIVE Algebra 2 CD-ROM. A balanced, integrated mathematics program that has proven itself a leader in the math teaching field, Algebra 2 covers geometric functions like angles, perimeters, and proportional segments; negative exponents; quadratic equations; metric conversions; logarithms; and advanced factoring.

The DIVE software teaches Saxon lesson concepts step-by-step on a digital whiteboard, each lesson 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 guide.

    I've used ALL the Saxon Math books along with the DIVE CD starting in the 78 series. I've been completely satisfied with the Saxon and DIVE lessons. After finishing the Algebra II lessons, I was surprised to discover the Saxon books did not cover ALL the Algebra concepts (85%). Luckily, with the help of the DIVE CD series for Algebra II, my son was able to complete the needed Algebra to qualify to pass his CLEP exams.
    I'm not familiar with the Saxon CD series, but we did review a sample Saxon CD and my son found he liked the DIVE better, which I enjoyed because it's cheaper then the Saxon, plus my son seemed to relate better DIVE.
    I gave a four star rating for "Meets Expectation" due to the number of errors and typo's I found in this book. But luckily you can find them on the Saxon Home page. I just didn't like having to track them down. I have enough to do as a home-school mom. But I love Saxon Math and will never sell or give away my library of them. They can always be used for future grandkids too.
