Saxon's Math Intermediate 3 is a perfect transition into Saxon Math 5/4!
Incremental lessons provide daily practice and assessment; mathematical concepts are taught through informative lessons, diagrams, interactive activities, and investigations that build critical thinking as well as real-world problem solving skills. Saxon Intermediate 3 includes 11 sections, 110 lessons and 11 "investigation" activities. Concepts cover patterns; addition; subtraction; money; fractions; measurement; multiplication; arrays; angles; congruent shapes; symmetry; geometric solids; division; capacity; estimation; sorting; and more.
Textbook lessons are divided into three sections. The first section is "power-up practice," which covers basic fact and mental math exercises which improve speed, accuracy, the ability to do mental math, and the ability to solve complicated problems. The second part of the lesson is the "New Concept," which introduces a new math concept through examples, and provides a chance for students to solve similar problems. Thirdly, the "Written Practice" section reviews previously taught concepts. One "Investigation" per session is included; "Investigations" are variations of the daily lesson and often involve activities that take up an entire class.
The included Power Up Workbook provides consumable pages for students to complete the Power Up exercises from the textbook, including the Facts Practice, Jump Start, Mental Math, and Problem Solving sections. The textbook may refer students to problems within this Power Up workbook, or the text may contain necessary problems and instructions (such as the mental math problems), which students will need to complete the exercises in this workbook.
The Solutions Manual arranges answers by section and lesson, and includes complete step-by-step solutions to the Lesson Practice, Written Practice, and Early Finishers questions, as well as the questions and practice items in the Investigations. It does not contain the answers to the Power-Up Workbook, which are currently unavailable.
The Homeschool Testing Book features reproducible cumulative tests which are available after every five lessons after lesson 10. Tests are designed to let students learn and practice concepts before being tested, helping them build confidence. Tests, a testing schedule, test answer forms, test analysis form, and test solutions are included. The three optional Test Solution Answer Forms provide the appropriate workspace for students to "show their work." The answer key shows the final solution only, not the steps taken to arrive at the answer.

- Saxon Intermediate 3 Textbook, 623 indexed pages, hardcover. Pages are two-tone and don't include any distracting illustrations.
- Power-Up Workbook; 110 non-reproducible, newsprint-like pages, three-hole-punched, perforated pages. Softcover.

lspinkroseSt. Johns, FL5 Stars Out Of 5I loved this programFebruary 17, 2014lspinkroseSt. Johns, FLI used this program for half a year (1 semester) to "catch up" my child's math skills before we started 4th grade math. What a great program! The explanations are easy to understand, the warm-up activities help get into math mood :) and the written practice provides great review of all the concepts learned through the year. I saw my son go from being a "C" student to an "A" student in math with this program.
ScottWisconsinAge: 45-54Gender: male5 Stars Out Of 5Big Fan of Saxon MathMarch 20, 2013ScottWisconsinAge: 45-54Gender: maleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5I like the Saxon Math concept of incremental development (the student revisits concepts already learned). It seems to keep the knowledge fresh. Occasionally, we will enhance the curriculum with a little deeper dive into the subject matter... but perhaps I do that to make myself feel useful! If I had a fault with the program it would be that each new year starts a little slow (I'm sure the authors assume the student has taken the summer off).

My daughter who is now 30 years old used it, and now I am using the same series for my grandchildren, ages 7 and 10. I love the way the Saxon series has lots of repetition, and the way that material is presented in small bits and pieces. Both of my grandchildren love math and say it's so easy to do the "hard stuff" their friends have to do in public school.
XgraverLancaster, PAAge: 35-44Gender: female5 Stars Out Of 5Perfect for those looking for a lot of repetition.September 6, 2011XgraverLancaster, PAAge: 35-44Gender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5I have used Saxon K and 1st grade. I was looking for a curriculum that would just focus on the basics before moving on. I found that with Saxon Intermediate 3. The earlier versions were just too childish for my kids at this point. We did not require the use of manipulatives anymore and Inter. 3 provided that.
Q: Do you need the manipulatives kit with this set?
No, the manipulative kit is not required for this set.
Q: Does the meeting book go with this also? the one that comes with the 3 group.
No, the Grade 3 Meeting Book is only designed to accompany the "Saxon Math 3 Home Study Kit" (WW20111).
Q: Lesson Activities? We have been working with this kit all semester, and occasionally the lesson refers to a Lesson Activity, which sounds like it is part of a separate book. There are money manipulatives to cut out, as well as fractions, etc. I cannot seem to find this stuff anywhere in the Power Up, Test Forms, Answers, or Textbook. Help???

Q: My daughter just completed Saxon Math 2. Should we got to Math 3 or Intermediate Math 3. Are they the same thing packaged differently?
The "Intermediate Math 3" program is designed to be used by the student more independently than item WW20111 "Math 3 Home Study Kit". If you are looking for a curriculum that is teacher intensive like the Saxon Math 2 program, you will want WW20111 "Math 3 Home Study Kit". If your daughter is ready for more independent learning, you can use this kit.
Q: My daughter struggled with Saxon Math 3 during the second semester, is this a good summer curriculum to catch her up to be ready for Math 5/4? She does not have the speed on her math facts, she also lacks some attention to detail that causes some missed problems during her second semester of Math 3.
This is a full year curriculum but could be used as review material.
Q: What level is this curriculum? Is this more difficult than Saxon 3? My child is not yet ready for 5/4 but we are finding Saxon 3 too easy.
This is intended for students that are beyond needing the one-on-one attention provided by the Saxon Math 3 program, but are not ready for Math 5/4. It sounds like it would be a perfect fit for your situation.
Q: do you need the fact cards?
The Power Up Workbook includes math facts, but if flash card review is necessary you will need to purchase the fact cards (CBD stock number WW790137).
