Saxon Math

Saxon Math is a textbook series covering Algebra 1 through Calculus based on incremental development and continual review of mathematical concepts to give students time to learn and practice concepts throughout the year. A distinguishing feature of Saxon Math is its use of a distributed approach—spreading practice and instruction for any single math content strand across the course of the entire instructional year—as opposed to a chapter-based approach for instruction and assessment. The program is built on the premise that students learn best when instruction is incremental and explicit, previously learned concepts are continually reviewed, and assessment is frequent and cumulative. At each grade level, math concepts are introduced, reviewed, and practiced over time in order to move students from understanding to fluency.
