Recommended for students in fifth grade, this 4th edition of the Saxon Math 7/6 Homeschool Student Text 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 math plays in so much of life. In classic Saxon style, this course continues to introduce your student incrementally to the beauty found in mathematics with regular review for mastery of math's grammar.
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.
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 budding scholar will rise to the challenge.
