The DIVE software teaches each Saxon lesson concept step-by-step on a digital whiteboard, averaging about 10-15 minutes in length; because each lesson is stored separately, you can easily move about from lesson-to-lesson as well as maneuver within the lesson you're watching. DIVE teaches the same concepts as Saxon, but does not use the problems given in the text; it cannot be used as a solutions manual.

mom3boyz1grl3 Stars Out Of 5Decent Math Program with loads of review, but CD's are NON-transferableAugust 1, 2014mom3boyz1grlQuality: 4Value: 2Meets Expectations: 4This Saxon Math 6/5 program is a decent math curriculum. They use a lot of review and if your child needs that, this is great. It can become tedious and repetitious for the quick learner, though.
The thing you need to be aware of is that the DIVE CD is non-transferable. It has a EULA licensing agreement, meaning you have been licensed to use it in your home, but you CANNOT sell, lend or even give it away.
Many homeschooling moms sell their curriculum at the end of the year to help fund next year's curriculum. You cannot do that with this CD. I wish someone had told me that before I invested in the CD's. :)
We have been using Teaching Textbooks and my children find them more engaging and I am happy that I can pass those on however I choose. :)
Q: Which is better: the DIVE or the teaching tape tutorial?
The item that would be better for you, depends upon your individual needs. In order to help you decide, summary descriptions for each of the products are listed below.
DIVE provides a digital whiteboard presentation of the lesson and investigation concepts contained in the Saxon Math textbook without using the exact examples from the book. Problem set and test solutions are not included. All material is taught from a Christian worldview. These cannot be used without the Saxon textbooks. The Solutions Manual may be necessary for upper level math. Compatible with Windows or Mac.
Teaching Tapes features live instruction by a state-certified teacher who explains and demonstrates each concept, example, practice problem and investigation. Problem set and test solutions are not included. Each lesson is approximately 10 to 15 minutes long including practice problem review. These DVDs cannot be used without the Saxon textbooks. The Solutions Manual may be necessary for upper level math. Can be played on any standard DVD player or in a DVD-Rom drive.
