My daughter was excited to have this CD-ROM, it has been very helpful for both of us. Each day my daughter completes her assignment, then after I check it she can watch the CD-ROM to see where she went wrong on any problems she did incorrectly. She likes the straight forward format, and it is easy for her to find/view only the problems she missed and not need to review each problem of the assignment. I would recommend this to anyone using Saxon Algebra 1/2.
This is my second year homeschooling my 13 year old. The DVD set for Saxon Math is an absolute must have. The lessons are short and to the point. (10-15 minutes) The program also goes thru the homework sets problem by problem and shows the student how to get the right answer. It's perfect for after my son has made his first attempt at all of the problems and is simply going back to correct the ones that he missed.
I have used Saxon Math products for many years and the addition of the Saxon teacher CDs is a great help. It insures that my sons have help at their fingertips even when I am busy or unavailable. The lessons are read just as you would from the book and the students can watch any or all of the problems worked out for them if they get stuck. Don't worry about them watching them all and not doing the work. The teacher goes slowly and most kids will work as many as they can on their own to save time.
