Saxon Math Homeschool 6/5 teaches math with a spiral approach, which emphasizes incremental development of new material and continuous review of previously taught concepts.

Building upon the principles taught in Saxon Math 5/4, the Saxon 65 **textbook** covers concepts such as: the order of operations; geometry and measurement; integers; divisibility concepts; ratios; statistics and probability; prime and composite numbers; patterns and sequences; and powers and roots. Students will specifically learn about making a multiplication table, adding/subtracting fractions with a common denominator, multiplying by multiples of 10 and 100, perimeter, simple probability, decimal parts of a meter, reciprocals, volume, square roots, graphing points on a coordinate plane, and more.

Lessons contain a warm-up (with facts practice, mental math, & problem-solving exercises); introduction to the new concept, lesson practice exercises where the new skill is practiced, and mixed practice exercises, which includes 25-30 old and new problems. In-depth "Investigations" are provided every 10 lessons, and have their own set of questions. Math 6/5 also includes 6 in-lesson activities and 5 investigation activities.

712 perforated, newsprint-like pages with illustrated glossary and index. 120 daily lessons and 12 investigations. Consumable softcover worktext.

The format is helpful and easy enough for our son to follow on his own. The practice helps to cement concepts, while also introducing new ones.

this is a great math text book, but I do wish the pages were a little thicker.

Saxon is wonderful....The home school edition as far as I can tell is the same as the public school edition.
