Built on a learning curve proven to raise achievement

While other math curricula ask students to progress from simple to complex concepts in just a few weeks, Saxon Math scaffolds instruction of each concept and continues to review information introduced earlier. This allows students the time and practice to retain math concepts to the level of mastery.

Student Experience

Teacher Experience

Easy-to-follow daily lessons offer a consistent structure to deepen mastery.

Classroom Discourse
Daily discussion and practice help students build an understanding of basic skills, mathematical concepts, and problem-solving strategies.  

Hands-On Learning
New concepts expand students’ knowledge through hands-on activities using manipulatives and other materials.

Students gain depth of knowledge through written practice, which gives them the opportunity to review and apply concepts.

"The lessons are easy to follow and the components all work together so well that it makes my job so much easier."

Instructional Content
Primary K–3

Instructional materials and activities in the consumable kit help students master foundational math concepts. Grade 3 is available in kit or textbook format.

Intermediate 3–5

Lessons embedded with activities and practical applications support mastery of concepts. 

Courses 1–3

Units are integrated and distributed to give students time to develop skills and algebraic thinking.

Algebra 1, Geometry, Algebra 2

Practical applications of abstract concepts help students master thinking and reasoning strategies.

Develop foundational understanding

Through daily reinforcement, practice, and application of basic skills and concepts, students build conceptual understanding, computational fluency, and problem-solving skills and strategies. This foundation supports a steady progression through higher levels of mathematics.

Ensure retention of mathematical concepts

Instruction, practice, and assessment distributed throughout the year means more time is devoted to reinforcing and building depth of understanding for long-term mastery.

Demonstrate measurable, sustained improvement

The instructional effectiveness of Saxon Math is clear. Decades of research show classrooms using Saxon consistently see dramatic improvement in student achievement.
