Saxon Publishing Math 87, Third Edition, Home School Kit in a Retail Box

Proven results, including higher test scores, have made Saxon Math ™ the hands-down favorite for homeschoolers. That's because only Saxon helps you teach the way your child learns best - step by step. We call it incremental development with continual practice and review. Each new skill builds on those already taught; daily review of earlier material increases understanding; and frequent, cumulative assessments ensure that your child masters each skill as new ones are added. The result? More confidence, more willingness to learn, more success.

Saxon Math 8/7 is a balanced, integrated mathematics program for the seventh grade. It emphasizes the concepts and skills necessary for your child's success in upper-level mathematics courses, including scientific notation; statistics and probability; ratios and proportions; simplifying and balancing equations; factoring algebraic expressions; slope-intercept form; graphing linear inequalities; arcs and sectors; and the Pythagorean theorem.

Kit includes:

  • Student Textbook with 120 daily lessons, 12 investigations, an illustrated glossary and supplemental practice in a brand new two-color format.
  • Tests and Worksheets Booklet with testing schedule and 23 cumulative tests, facts practice tests, and activity sheets.
  • Solutions Manual with full step-by-step solutions to all lesson and investigation problems, solutions to the 23 tests, and answers to supplemental practice problems and facts practice problems.

All three of my children have successfully used Saxon Math after switching from other programs in the first years of home schooling, starting with book 5/4 through currently using Algebra I. The lessons are easy to follow with a consistent format, and taught directly to the student for independent work. Each concept has a chapter reference, so the student can refer back as needed. While Saxon strongly advises not altering lessons and the amount of practice problems to successfully complete the program, my children were overwhelmed with the amount of work given for each lesson, so I adjusted to each of my childrens ability and progress by only giving half of the mixed practice problems, splitting the lessons over two days or, if the child was buzzing along, doubling lessons then full mixed practice and lesson on alternate days. Testing is done on Fridays. If switching to this program after using others, be sure to take the placement tests offered on the Saxon website, and not go by grade level, to ensure there are no learning gaps to successfully use this program.
