Item description for Saxon Math 1: An Incremental Development Home Study Meeting Book by Larson, 0226 & 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. Each grade level has its own consumable meeting book, which is used during The Meeting at the beginning of each day. This first edition meeting book is for Grade 1.

Saxon Meeting Book Aug 6, 2007

THIS IS NOT WHAT YOU THINK IT IS!!!! May 12, 2006
THIS IS NOT THE TEXTBOOK THIS IS NOT THE TEXTBOOK THIS IS NOT THE TEXTBOOK THIS IS NOT THE TEXTBOOK THIS IS NOT THE TEXTBOOK
This is the workbook to be used with the text book. It does NOT include the text book.
Not clearly listed and unnecessary Apr 23, 2006
Becareful!! This is not listed clearly... it is only the meeting book and not the student workbook. I ordered this under the impression it was the workbook as the listing implies and found out the hard way. this site would not refund my shipping cost. I was very disappointed.
If you have a calendar, can draw a graph for weather, type up a 100s chart, and practice patterning you do not need this book anyway.
Definitely go for the student workbook and the teacher's manual, it has all you will need. We absolutely love the Saxon program. My daughter has raced through it and can't wait to do math each day.
Excellent Program Mar 15, 2006
I began using Saxon Math Homeschool because I needed to home school for a few years and wanted to use the same curriculum as the school I expect to send the kids to when we move back "home." I was delighted with Saxon K and am just as pleased with Saxon 1. My 5 year son old is doing well with it and enjoys most of the lessons (because it was designed originally as a remedial program the publisher says kids can easily work one year ahead of designated "grade"). He does not however enjoy all the written work and we don't really need to do all of it. Each grade level repeats a healthy portion of the previous book. It is a great curriculum to stick with and I don't know anyone who has switched to something else once they used Saxon. I would recommend it to anyone! The hands on lessons and the incremental approach are great. Incremental means rather than a chapter of this and a chapter of that each lesson builds a little and concepts are interwoven. For instance dimes and pennies are interwoven with counting by tens, adding up a receipt with money in the tens place & ones place, and regrouping is introduced by exchanging pennies for dimes. There are specific manipulatives required for this program: balance, student clock (teacher clock with gearing is very helpful), geoboard with rubber bands, hundred number chart, mathlink cubes, pattern blocks, & ruler. You will also need the work books. Some people skip the meeting book portion of the lesson but I find it helpful though we don't do it every day.
