Recommended for your fourth grader, the Saxon 6/5 curriculum uses a spiral approach to extend a student's understanding of math concepts, sharpen mental math skills, and build student confidence in solving problems. Geometry concepts are fully integrated in the lessons, too. The Saxon Math 6/5 Homeschool Kit includes the 3rd edition of the student text, solutions manual, and tests and worksheets volume.
Saxon 6/5 covers key concepts, including order of operations, geometry and measurement, integers, divisibility concepts, ratios, statistics and probability, prime and composite numbers, patterns and sequences, and powers and roots. Students also will learn about making a multiplication table, adding and subtracting fractions with a common denominator, multiplying by multiples of 10 and 100, perimeter, simple probability, decimal parts of a meter, reciprocals, volume, square roots, graphing points on a coordinate plane, and more.
We strongly believe young minds are far more capable than many people think, and that's why we recommend using this program ahead of the stated grade level—something John Saxon himself told us he supported. With the help of incremental advances and the practice, practice, practice of daily review, your young scholar will rise to the challenge of grasping concepts and experience the triumph of ever-improving mastery.
