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.
Students build skills and confidence through daily opportunities to review, develop mathematical reasoning, and apply knowledge.
Engaging manipulatives and hands-on learning tools help students develop and demonstrate understanding.
New online resources give students convenient access to lessons and fun opportunities for practice and enrichment with Drawing Tools, iTools digital math manipulatives, Calculator Activities, and an eGlossary.
Daily discussion and practice help students build an understanding of basic skills, mathematical concepts, and problem-solving strategies.
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."
Summative assessments, including Power Up, Cumulative, Benchmark, and End-of-Year tests, allow teachers to continuously monitor progress.
Formative assessments conducted through daily instruction, lesson practice, and written practice provide immediate feedback for intervention and enrichment.
The Guide to Differentiated Instruction supports teachers with planning resources focused on meeting different learners’ needs.
Instructional materials and activities in the consumable kit help students master foundational math concepts. Grade 3 is available in kit or textbook format.
Lessons embedded with activities and practical applications support mastery of concepts.
Units are integrated and distributed to give students time to develop skills and algebraic thinking.
Practical applications of abstract concepts help students master thinking and reasoning strategies.
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.
Instruction, practice, and assessment distributed throughout the year means more time is devoted to reinforcing and building depth of understanding for long-term mastery.
The instructional effectiveness of Saxon Math is clear. Decades of research show classrooms using Saxon consistently see dramatic improvement in student achievement.
