Saxon Math now gets even better results because all of the school editions for grades K-8 have been redesigned to support the common core standards. The new editions support both the Standards for Mathematical Content and Mathematical Practice at every grade level. In line with the Common Core Standards, Saxon Math now ensures students retain all skills and concepts to reach a deep level of mastery.
Saxon Math offers a balanced approach that develops deep conceptual understanding, computational fluency, and problem solving skills and strategies. The curriculum is built around a unique pedagogy that includes incremental learning, daily distributed practice, and frequent, cumulative assessment.
The Saxon Math Program is a a complete K-12 math solution. The comprehensive curriculum is configured to meet the needs of students every step of the way. Saxon has one of the most measurable, sustained research bases in math instruction with over 25 years of outstanding results including:
- Increased retention and mastery of learned concepts
- Higher test scores
- Greater self-confidence in mathematics
- Sustained performance in higher-level mathematics
Here is an example of how Saxon Math has helped kids make immediate gains that have led to sustained performance. Third grade students at Hawthorne Elementary School, an urban New York school, have flourished on the New York State Testing Program (NYSTP) for math achievement. Since 2006, test scores have increased by 32%!
Another example is Kellogg Elementary in urban Illinois. This school has been using Saxon Math for over 9 years. Over the past 5 years test scores on the Illinois Standards Achievement Test (ISAT) for mathematics have increased in grades 3, 4, and 5. Achievement scores for third grade students increased 30% since 2005. 5th grade math students have consistently outranked the state and the district since 2006.
Saxon Math helps students achieve higher test scores, better prepares students for college entrance exams, and readies students for college math concepts.
