Saxon Publishing Math 76, Fourth Edition, Student Text

Saxon Math 7/6 will help middle-school students gain a solid foundation of algebraic reasoning and geometric skills as they prepare to move on to higher-level math and algebraic reasoning in Saxon 8/7 or Algebra =. It teaches math with a spiral approach, which emphasizes incremental development of new material and continuous review of previously taught concepts.

This Saxon 76 textbook introduces functions and coordinate graphing, integers, exponential expressions, and prime factorization. Students will specifically learn about the order of operations, number lines, decimal place value, how to find the percent of a number, how to round decimal numbers, attributes of geometric solids, 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. The back of the book contains supplemental problems for selected lessons and concepts.

744 indexed pages, softcover. Consumable, non -reproducible workbook. 120 daily lessons, 12 in vestigations, and an illustrated glossary included.

I have used Saxon math books with my two kids for the last three years and I've found there are some pros and cons. First, the pro: previous lessons are constantly reviewed, giving students plenty of opportunities for reinforcement. Cons: the practice pages are long and tedious. the lesson taught in each chapter doesn't go into enough depth. there's not enough problems to solve using lessons learned in current chapter. I would say 90% of the problems are from previous chapters and only 10% is from current chapter.
This book works well for students who require constant review but not necessarily for those who like a challenge and want to advance quickly.

Especially if you are doing a self-teaching curriculum. The Saxon math books are very well written. My special needs 13 yr old and my eleven year old both are using the Saxon Math 7/6 and they seldom ask for assistance.

I was delighted to find Saxon Math 7/6 at a lower price, but when I received it, I was disappointed to see that it was printed on a thinner, cheaper, newspaper-like paper. I would rather pay a little more for a better quality textbook.
