Focusing on algebraic reasoning and geometric concepts, Saxon Math Homeschool 8/7 teaches math with a spiral approach, which emphasizes incremental development of new material and continuous review of previously taught concepts.
This Saxon 87 textbook reviews arithmetic calculation, measurements, geometry and other skills, and introduces pre-algebra, ratios, probability and statistics. Students will specifically learn about adding/subtracting/multiplying fractions, equivalent fractions, the metric system, repeating decimals, scientific notation, Pi, graphing inequalities, multiplying algebraic terms, the Pythagorean Theorem, the slope-intercept form of linear equations, 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 back of the book contains supplemental problems for selected lessons and concepts.

Melissa5 Stars Out Of 5great over all mathNovember 30, 2012MelissaQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5I love this math. It is boring and very repetitive, however it is the most complete math we have tried. My daughter is dyslexic and needs that repetition and she has struggled through. She is now getting a handle and doing much better.
We have tried Horizon's Math, Math U See, and Teaching Textbooks and we always come back to this one. Some of the others were easier for her, but she would have ended up struggling more in the higher maths because she did not have a good foundation. She has that now and is doing great. Real struggle in the beginning, but it settles down and is worth it in the end.
