I love Saxon Math books. I used theer texts from 5/4 thru Calculus for my older children, and when the K-2 curriculum was added, I started using using those texts for my younger children. I like the way Saxon breaks the concepts down to small steps and introduces the new changes to each type of problem. I like that as long as I look over the lesson the night before, I’m good to teach it the next day. My children did very well in Saxon. Those who went to college did better in College Algebra than their peers, and even helped the students around them. My mother was so impressed with how well my children were doing in math, that she switched her public school 1st grade class over to the Saxon texts.
