Saxon Math is really easy to use, including Saxon Algebra 1/2. You really don't need to buy the Teachers Edition, it's all explained well in the Student Edition and there really isn't anything new in the Teachers addition to provide extra help. What you need to buy is the Student book, along with Solutions Manual and Test forms and Homeschool packet. You need all four things. Also, make sure if, buying used that they are all the same year and same edition.
I was very disappointed to find that not ALL the problems were outlined in this book. Particularly, the practice problems have NO SOLUTIONS and those are the new concept problems. It makes no sense to me why a solutions manual would not include solutions for the problems students have just been taught in the book. I LOVE Saxon math and have used it my whole homeschool career so far (5 years) but this solutions manual leaves something to be desired I'm sorry to say.
Unfortunately, math is being taught at a lower competency level in public schools. The Saxon books take incremental steps in each area and regularly review prior areas. Students I tutor like being reminded that they have learned a lot and can use some or most of the prior topics in the current study area. When my students need to look something up (rather than my just telling them), they can find the specific step they need without a headache-long passage about a much larger topic.
This math solutions book has saved my sanity! I did graduate from 6th grade and even have two college degrees but I do not enjoy re-living math from the 6th grade! This has allowed me to quickly check my son's math problems and help him solve any that he is struggling with. The best part is the step by step instructions on HOW to solve the problems that my aging mind can't recall! This solutions manual has really made math bearable and I do not think we could survive math without it! Even if you and your child excel at math, it is nice to be able to quickly check over their work to see if there are any areas that need special attention before test time!
I bought this book to help me correct my 8th graders math and to also better understand on how to help him. It was the best decision I made and the book showed up on time.
Bought this used & it's in great condition. The book even shows you the steps they took to get the answers.
Excellent, it was just what I was looking for. I am a teacher who teaches in a multigrade classroom. The solutions manual saves time and my volunteer helpers are able to help the students.
Ases a lifesaver. It is definitely a must-have and is exactly as described. I don't think I can make it through six grade without it.
