Saxon Math is designed to support the long-term mastery and applications that will make a difference during testing and in students’ future education and careers.
According to the pedagogy
* Incremental Concepts are taught in small, approachable progressions
* Distributed Increments are spread throughout the year, building in complexity, so that by the end of the year students have reached deep understanding and fluency
* Cumulative Practice and assessments include concepts from the most recent lessons as well as from earlier in the year, ensuring students retain all concepts and can make connections between them
Saxon Math K-3 program is designed to teach basic arithmetic concepts as well as geometry, patterns, time, and more. Each lesson is scripted for the parent, which takes the guesswork out of teaching young learners. Manipulatives accelerate understanding of abstract math concepts, and worksheets provide cumulative review.
Saxon Math for middle grades transitions students from manipulatives and worksheets to a textbook approach. The emphasis in the middle grades is on developing algebraic reasoning as well as geometric concepts. Like the middle grades, the upper grades program offers a textbook, tests, and a Solutions Manual.
Saxon Math for high school prepares students for college, from Algebra 1 to Calculus

John Saxon originally wrote this math series back in the 1970s. After the textbook publisher Houghton-Miflin bought Saxon Math, Stephen Hake and Nancy Larson were brought on board to assist with updating the material.
