Text is Great, Tapes are not
June 23, 2014
I have nothing against Saxon Algebra 2, its the teaching tapes that come with the textbook. They are incomplete. The teacher on the DVD covers the lesson content and how to solve (step by step) the example and practice problems. However, the problem sets are not covered at all.
This is difficult because the answer key does not give step-by-step instructions on how to solve the problems, it only gives the answer.
We found that the Saxon Teacher products does review all of the example, practice and problem sets along with giving a brief overview of the lesson. It's more complete and less expensive than the teaching tapes.
So, I'd pass on the more expensive teaching tapes and get the Saxon Teacher DVDs instead. They are a terrific resource.
