General Description

Classical Conversations endorses Saxon math as a complete K-12 Curriculum. No curriculum is ever perfect, but Saxon has the history and statistics to prove that it can take a home schooled student through Algebra II and even beyond without the guidance of an expert math teacher.

Saxon Math 8/7 is made up of five instructional components: Facts Practice and Problem Solving, Daily Lessons, Daily Practice, Daily Problem Sets, and Cumulative Tests. Investigations, which are activity-based variations of the daily lessons, are distributed throughout the text. Daily problem-solving exercises further augment student skills. The textbook contains no answers, but an answer key is provided for all homework problems.

Math 8/7 emphasizes concepts and skills necessary for success in upper-level mathematics courses, including fractions, decimals, percentages, ratios, perimeter, circumference, area, volume, exponents, scientific notation, signed numbers, and problem-solving techniques using word problems.

1) Textbook: including practice questions and problem sets (sometimes referred to as assignment questions)
