My family has loved the Saxon methods ever since level 4/5 when we started using it. My son loves it's easy to use format and has rapidly moved along in his math skills, with very little to no supervision to complete the lessons. He even starts his days with Saxon math by his own choice. He really loves this math and he's developmentaly delayed. I've introduced others to Saxon math and found much of the same success as my son.
If you home school and if you are leaning toward another math program like Teaching Textbooks or something that doesn't require constant supervision then SAXON IS NOT FOR YOU.Last year I said I'd never use Saxon again, but I balked at the price of Teaching Textbooks (about 3+ times the price of Saxon). Now I wish we had eaten rice and beans for a few months to pay for it.Saxon in general is not friendly to children who are weak in Math, nor their parents. They offer very few practice problems for each new concept. Their story problems are designed to confuse you with the language, so that the math concept is doubly confusing.I have used Saxon for five years, and I can't believe we have wasted so much time and expended so much anxiety when math was as easily presentable as Math U See or Teaching Textbooks.
