After many attempts at math with different grade levels and programs, we finally had our 17yr old dd tested for learning disabilities and found out she does have a learning disability in math. So far, we are well pleased with Saxon. She is grasping the concepts one by one and the review is so helpful. She has trouble holding the information in her mind long enough to work with it, but Saxon's method of introducing one concept at a time and reviewing previous concepts through daily practice are just what we needed!
I'm using this curriculum with a young man who was left choking in the dust in the standard school curriculum. He's able to work this independently at his own pace. Now that he's finally found a form of math instruction he can understand, that pace is quite quick!
