Great math curriculum for homeschoolers Dec 31, 2009
Being new to homeschooling my wife and I were very nervous about the whole business. The Saxon Math curriculum has been a wonderful help in building our confidence.
Things which we especially like are -
1) The way it builds on the concepts already learnt, with a suitable degree of repetition to ensure reenforcement 2) The "teacher script" concept, which means that even as a first timer you really can't go wrong 3) The breadth of topics covered right from the start, including number recognition, arithmetic, dates and times, money and geometry
I've seen reviews complaining about the inflexibility, because of the "daily meeting" concept which has a set number of lessons per month. Others have complained about the fact that it uses US money. We've been able to adapt the lessons quite easily to a slightly different timescale and to use a different currency (UK pounds, with a little bit of education on Euros and US dollars thrown in for good measure).
Since math is only one of a number of subjects we are teaching we find the lessons are a suitable length for the age of child.
Our elder daughter is making very good progress thanks to Saxon, and our younger one (who is only just turning 3) is already starting to pick up some of the concepts as well in so much as we may need to skip Math K with her altogether when the time comes.
So if you are homeschooling, I'd thoroughly recommend Saxon to you.
One thing though : make sure you get the Manipulatives Kit as well. While it would be possible to source all the items in it separately it will save you a great deal of trouble to get them all together (and the box is good for keeping everything in as well).
Wonderful curriculum! Oct 10, 2009
This curriculum is GREAT!! I enjoy the math concepts it introduces and teaches for K5. It sets a great math foundation early.
