Saxon Math Algebra 2 2nd & 3rd Edition Dive CD-Rom
October 10, 2016
The instructor does a fine job in explaining each lesson.After explaining the new lesson,he provides 2-3 sample problems. He then encourages the student to pause and try the problem first and then check their work to his solution.
We decided on Saxon Math because this was what was recommended to us, as a homeschooling family. We find it useful because the books and materials are well written, and the CD Rom really helpful as a teaching tool. We are weak in Algebra but the CD Instructor is very clear. And this has helped with our son's work (currently in Grace 10) for the last 3 years. In fact, the CD Rom is so well made that he self studies with it and the books and materials given to him.
I've used the DIVE CD, since 76 series, and find them to be a wonderful additional tool to teach my child lessons.
First off; DIVE CD's were meant to be used 'WITH' Saxon Books, not separate, it was design to moves along with each lesson. If you don't have the books you will NOT get the full benefit..period.
It pains me to hear bad reviews about Saxon Math books or this DIVE CD, when not all the materials are being purchased to save money. You can not simply buy a CD and expect to get the results of the entire book series.
My son was able to move into College level math and beyond with this CD and the Saxon math series. He's planning on majoring in math, even though he was failing in the public school systems books. When I switched him to Saxon he excelled and is now three years ahead of his classmates. Something four years ago I never thought would happen.
I'm thank full for the option Saxon and DIVE CD's have provided.
