Saxon Publishing Saxon Math 5/4 Student Text, 3rd Edition

Focusing on algebraic reasoning and geometric concepts, Saxon Math Homeschool 5/4 teaches math with a spiral approach, which emphasizes incremental development of new material and continuous review of previously taught concepts.

This Saxon 54 textbook covers concepts such as whole number concepts and computation; arithmetic algorithms, geometry and measurement; elapsed time; fractions, decimals and percents; powers and roots; estimation; patterns and sequences; congruency and similarity; and statistics and probability. Students will specifically learn to add three-digit numbers, subtract numbers with re-grouping, read time, write numbers, estimate arithmetic answers, divide with two-digit answers, multiply three or more factors, simplify fraction answers, use a decimal number line, and more.

Lessons contain a warm-up (with facts practice, mental math, & problem-solving exercises), an introduction to the new concept, lesson practice exercises where the new skill is practiced, and mixed practice exercises, which include 25-30 old and new problems. In-depth "Investigations" are provided every 10 lessons, and have their own set of questions. Math 5/4 also includes 8 in-lesson activities and 5 investigation activities. The back of the book contains supplemental problems for selected lessons and concepts.

627 pages, softcover. Consumable workbook. 120 daily lessons, 12 investigations, and an illustrated glossary included.

This is an excellent math program. It is easy for a home-school mom to use, and it gives a good foundation for upper level math. It is not a Christian publication so there are story problems that may mention things at a Christian might not agree with. They are few, but they can be a means of initiating a discussion to reinforce beliefs.

This is the first year we are doing homeschooling and I am pleased that Saxon Math curriculum is offered for homeschoolers. My daughter had this program at school so we are able to continue from where she started!
