Saxon Publishing Math 76, Fourth Edition, Home School Kit in a Retail Box

Saxon Math Homeschool 7/6 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 6/7, the 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 Tests and Worksheetsbook provides supplemental "facts practice" tests for each lesson, as well as 23 cumulative tests that cover every 5-10 lessons. The included "activity sheets" are designed to be used with the activities given in the student worktext. Five optional, reproducible, recording forms are also included.

The Solutions Manual provides answers for all problems in the lesson (including warm-up, lesson practice, and mixed practice exercises), as well as solutions for the supplemental practice found in the back of the student text. It also includes answers for the facts practice tests, activity sheets, and tests in the separate tests & worksheets book.

Saxon Math 7/6 is designed for students in grade 6, or for 7th grade students who are struggling with math.

This Saxon Homeschool Kit includes:

  • Student Text; 120 lessons, 12 investigations, 744 perforated pages, softcover, 3rd Edition.

  • Tests and worksheets book; 241 perforated pages, three-ring-punched. 3rd Edition.
  • Solutions Manual; 331 perforated pages, softcover. 3rd Edition.

Please Note: The only difference between this kit and the Saxon Home Study kit is that this kit comes in a retail box. Curriculum contents are identical.

Saxon Math has worked really well for my kids. I love that a student can work independently on their lesson and get help from their teacher if needed.

Great program so far, we've only just started the year of schooling. I particularly love the way lessons build on one another so comprehension is guaranteed and workload doesn't seem overwhelming.

We tried Math U See and Teaching Textbooks, but found that our daughter was not retaining what she learned. I ordered Saxon 6/7 to do with her this summer, and am thrilled with it. It only takes 15-20 minutes each day, but she is retaining it and making great progress. I like the simple format, and so far, the new concepts are clearly taught. I hope we can continue with Saxon all through high school.

This is our second year using Saxon Math. We love it. The material is presented slowly which helps build confidence for the less-than-excited math student. At the same time Saxon provides solid math skills that stick with the student over time.

I have used other programs, and I wont use anything else now. I used to hate teaching math, I admit it, but with Saxon I look like genius, and I actually get it!

Saxon Math is always a great way to go. This was the best value for a new set I could find online.
