Saxon Math is a thorough mathematics program for children from kindergarten age through high school. Saxon Math focuses on the comprehension of basic skills through a gentle development of concepts and the practice of those concepts over a considerable length of time.
It is an incremental approach that distributes instruction, practice, and assessment of related topics over a year rather than grouping concepts into chapters or units. Saxon Math introduces topics in an easily understandable format and allows time for assimilation before another concept is introduced. Concepts increase in complexity from one lesson to the next and are repeatedly practiced. This repetition allows time for the concepts to become mastered.
