Saxon Math Homeschool 7/6 teaches math with a spiral approach, which emphasizes incremental development of new material and continuous review of previously taught concepts.
Building upon the principles taught in Saxon Math 6/7, the Saxon 76 textbook introduces functions and coordinate graphing, integers, exponential expressions, and prime factorization. Students will specifically learn about the order of operations, number lines, decimal place value, how to find the percent of a number, how to round decimal numbers, attributes of geometric solids, and more.
Lessons contain a warm-up (with facts practice, mental math, & problem-solving exercises); introduction to the new concept, lesson practice exercises where the new skill is practiced, and mixed practice exercises, which includes 25-30 old and new problems. In-depth "Investigations" are provided every 10 lessons, and have their own set of questions.
The Tests and Worksheetsbook provides supplemental "facts practice" tests for each lesson, as well as 23 cumulative tests that cover every 5-10 lessons. The included "activity sheets" are designed to be used with the activities given in the student worktext. Five optional, reproducible, recording forms are also included.
The Solutions Manual provides answers for all problems in the lesson (including warm-up, lesson practice, and mixed practice exercises), as well as solutions for the supplemental practice found in the back of the student text. It also includes answers for the facts practice tests, activity sheets, and tests in the separate tests & worksheets book.
Saxon Math 7/6 is designed for students in grade 6, or for 7th grade students who are struggling with math.

vshelIowaAge: 45-54Gender: female5 Stars Out Of 5Love the formatJuly 29, 2011vshelIowaAge: 45-54Gender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 4Meets Expectations: 5We tried Math U See and Teaching Textbooks, but found that our daughter was not retaining what she learned. I ordered Saxon 6/7 to do with her this summer, and am thrilled with it. It only takes 15-20 minutes each day, but she is retaining it and making great progress. I like the simple format, and so far, the new concepts are clearly taught. I hope we can continue with Saxon all through high school.
Amy Cantley5 Stars Out Of 5good for math weary studentsNovember 12, 2010Amy CantleyQuality: 5Value: 4Meets Expectations: 5This is our second year using Saxon Math. We love it. The material is presented slowly which helps build confidence for the less-than-excited math student. At the same time Saxon provides solid math skills that stick with the student over time.
