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.

We switched from teaching text books to Saxon 7/6.
RobinAberdeen, MarylandAge: 35-44Gender: female5 Stars Out Of 5February 4, 2014RobinAberdeen, MarylandAge: 35-44Gender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 4Meets Expectations: 5This is the third Saxon book we have used in homeschooling over the past 2 and a half years. There are no fancy illustrations, and I know that the lessons are delivered in a predictable format, but we really like the program. Our son is sharp, and he can still benefit from the spiral approach of Saxon. The fact that previous lessons continue to be integrated into current lessons really helps solidify our 12 year old's comprehension. Many days we assign two lessons, and circle which problems we want him to complete on the mixed practice. The time tests are very beneficial too. In preparation for this year, his sixth grade year, I reviewed, and even tested him in Teaching Textbooks and Singapore. He was above the recommended level in TT, and I just wanted more problems than Singapore had in its text. We really like Saxon, and our son begins every day with math, whether I am present to get him started or not. That says a lot.
KatieGender: female5 Stars Out Of 5Excellent!November 12, 2013KatieGender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5Love this curriculum! I discovered in when I was working in Juvenile Detention Center and was amazed at the results I saw with teens that had significant learning disabilities, hated school, and of course math! After couple of weeks on this curriculum, most were making A's and the confidence they were getting, reflected on their behavior. Now I use it on my kids and they love it, although my daughter is disappointed that I am making her start at a lower level, but public school math left so many holes, that we are doing alot of back work before we can successfully move forward. Thank you Saxon!
Mammy AnneDecatur, GAAge: Over 65Gender: female5 Stars Out Of 5Love It!!September 12, 2013Mammy AnneDecatur, GAAge: Over 65Gender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5There is no better Math text than the Saxon series. I introduced it in the 1980's in the Christian high school were our two older daughters were in my class. I have never seen anything to rival the approach Saxon takes. I have a Masters Degree in Teaching Math and enough years of teaching all levels and courses from K-12 and tutoring teens and adults through college and graduate school. The Saxon approach is where the rubber meets the road for giving a student the best foundation and tools for success in any field of study and just plain old everyday life. You will not find a Saxon student who grows up to hate Math. They will be the parents who love to help their kids with homework problems, too.
Tammy James5 Stars Out Of 5Do you want your child overly prepared?April 24, 2013Tammy JamesQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5The Saxon Curriculum prepares your child years above their public school counterparts. After Algebra II in this program for my daughter I put her in public school for Advanced Math. She was so far ahead of where they were and where they were going that I pulled her out and ordered Saxon Advanced Math for her to complete at home. The curriculum prepares our children far ahead of the same curriculum taught elsewhere. You will not be disappointed. I will never stray again. My daughter is now in Calculus in the College and my son will be following in her footsteps because of Saxon.
Q: Are answer keys provided? Are the answer keys provided with homeschooling kits?
