Great for teaching math. I just started homeschooling and was very nervous. But this set made it so easy. I love the visual concepts that really help my child understand the material. The written script makes it so easy. The only thing I wish was better was the paper of the workbooks. The pages are super thin. But we just don't use markers on the pages (they will bleed through). Other than that-love it! And I will be using Saxon for math however long I homeschool.
My son cannot wait to get started on this program. He is not a sit and do pages and pages of facts type child, and this program looks to be much more intense, yet the activities are providing the same results but with hands on fun! Most of the moms in our homeschool group use the Saxon Math program and highly recommend it.
I love Saxon math. It is very easy to use for any age child. However, my children seem to be ahead of the curve in the early years. My kindergartener is using the Saxon 1 and we still skip some things because he already has mastered them. It is really easy to use multiple grades together, even though the meat of the lessons may be different. We can do the meeting book together and then split into separate lessons, or sometimes even combine them.
