    My son has used Saxon very successfully since 1st grade until he got halfway through Algebra 1. The concepts are not presented in a rational progression; today's topic may be totally unrelated to yesterday's and tomorrow's topics. Also, there are never enough new concept problems to work through in order to thoroughly cement each day's lesson in the student's understanding. My son needed many more new concept problems and less review problems on each lesson and better continuity. He was constantly having to review previous lessons. We are using a different curriculum now which great success and enjoyment.

    I just received this kit today, and I am loving the teacher lesson & test cds. The simulated whiteboard is amazing! My daughter goes to public school, and has always had trouble understanding math. We use the Saxon curriculum as a way to help her at home. We do lessons in the summer months to keep her in a math state of mind. Worth every penny.

    I homeschool my two 9th grade granddaughters. We are using Saxon Math with Saxon teacher and we love it. The teacher's demonstrations and explanations of each problem is so clear that the girls are actually enjoying math this year. Thank you for this new help.
