Recommended for students in fifth grade, Saxon Math 7/6 introduces new concepts your child will need to build the foundation for upper-level subjects like algebra and geometry and grows student appreciation for the role mathematics plays in so much of life. In classic Saxon style, this course continues to introduce your student incrementally to the beauty found in math with regular review for mastery of math's grammar. After every tenth lesson is an investigation--an extensive examination of a specific math topic, discussed at length to ensure depth of understanding. The Saxon Math 7/6 Homeschool Kit includes the 4th edition of the student text, solutions manual, and tests and worksheets volume.
Saxon 7/6 covers topics that include word problems, functions and coordinate graphing, integers, exponential expressions, prime factorization, and much more. Among other topics students will learn are the order of operations, decimal place value and rounding, how to find the percent of a number, and attributes of geometric solids.
Recommended for your fifth graders, the Saxon 7/6 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. 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 continuous review, your budding scholar will rise to the challenge of grasping concepts and experience the triumph of ever-improving mastery.
