Your sixth grader is on the cusp of upper level math, so how do you make sure that young mind is solidly prepared for the coming algebra, geometry, and more? If your child has spent the grammar years studying with Saxon and has mastered the concepts in Saxon 7/6, we recommend heading right to Saxon Algebra 1/2. If your student is a newcomer to classical education or needs to shore up the math foundation--especially arithmetic concepts--choose Saxon 8/7 instead for pre-algebra. In either case, we strongly believe young minds are far more capable than many people think, and that's why we recommend using these pre-algebra programs ahead of the stated grade level. With the help of incremental advances and continuous review, your budding scholar will rise to the chalenge of grasping concepts and experience the triumph of ever-improving mastery.
