Item description for Math 2: Home Study Kit (Homeschool Math Grade 2) by Larson, 0196 & Saxon Publishers...
Saxon math programs produce confident students who are not only able to correctly compute, but also to apply concepts to new situations. These materials gently develop concepts, and the practice of those concepts is extended over a considerable period of time. This is called "incremental development and continual review." Material is introduced in easily understandable pieces (increments), allowing students to grasp one facet of a concept before the next one is introduced. Both facets are then practiced together until another one is introduced. This feature is combined with continual review in every lesson throughout the year. Topics are never dropped but are increased in complexity and practiced every day, providing the time required for concepts to become totally familiar. Saxon Math 2 is made up of five instructional components: The Meeting, Number Fact Practice, The Lesson, Guided Class Practice and Homework, and Assessments. This home study kit includes a teacher's manual, a meeting book, and a student workbook with fact cards. Grade 2.

Reviews - What do customers think about Math 2: Home Study Kit (Homeschool Math Grade 2)?
Love it! Feb 19, 2010
I taught elementary education. My father has taught middle and high-school math. We both love this program and have seen it work wonders. It gradually introduces children to math concepts (somewhat surreptitiously, I might add) so that when a concept is brought to the forefront...the child automatically understands. For example, it took only two lessons for my son to grasp the concept of "carrying" which is a concept many children struggle with in other elementary math programs. The lessons may seem boring to the kids at times because the concepts come so naturally. Follow the teachers manual closely. The introduction to concepts is so gradual that if you don't follow the lessons...your child may miss something down the road. This program is geared towards helping children understand not only how to do math but the purpose behind it. It constantly reviews previously learned material which helps children remember, and build on what they've learned. If your child is advanced in math, contact Saxon about which level would be best for your child.
As to Math 2 specifically, I purchased this book to supplement my child's education. We live in a remote location where the educational system is suffering. It takes 30 minutes to an hour to complete each lesson depending on how quickly your child likes to move. The preparation and supplies required are minimal. Keep a roll of pennies, nickles, dimes, and quarters handy for this book. We use them daily. The manipulative package is necessary for some of the lessons but, for this level, you may be able to get away without them by creating some of your own. I purchased the manipulatives for Saxon K-3 and my kids love to play with them so if the budget allows I wouldn't hesitate to buy.
