Saxon Algebra 1/2 (3Ed) Home School Kit

Not sure what grade level to start with? Take the Placement Test

This Grade 8 course contains 123 lessons and is the culmination of pre-algebra mathematics, covering all topics normally taught in prealgebra, as well as additional topics from geometry and discrete mathematics (used in engineering and computer sciences).

Building on Saxon Math 8/7 and utilizing the same incremental approach to math, Algebra 1/2 now prepares students for the math they will be learning in high school. Some topics covered in this text include:

  • Prime and Composite numbers
  • fractions & decimals
  • order of operations
  • coordinates
  • exponents
  • square roots
  • ratios
  • algebraic phrases
  • probability
  • the Pythagorean Theorem
  • and more

Due to the spiral approach and incremental development of Saxon Math, your students will learn in small doses at their own pace, increasing retention of knowledge and satisfaction!

This Saxon Math Homeschool Kit includes the Hardcover Student Text, the Softcover Tests Booklet, and the Softcover Answer Key. Note: These pieces are sold as a kit  Only the tests can be purchased separately.

The Student Text is a hardcover textbook that contains 123 lessons covering geometric constructions; representing data; arithmetic in base 2; theorems about angles and circular arcs; approximating roots; polynomials; transformational geometry; advanced graphing; slope; basic trigonometry. In the back of the text are the answers (not solutions) to only the odd-numbered problems in the text.

The Tests Booklet is a softcover booklet containing 31 tests. A testing schedule is included in the front. At the back of the book are reproducible, optional student answer forms that provide sufficient writing space to show all work (solutions) along with the answer. Test solutions are in the Answer Key.

The softcover Answer Key is a 86-page book that includes the answers in bold type with solutions for all the test problems. It also includes answers only (not solutions) to the "Practice" and "Problem Set" problems in the textbook. Full solutions to all the textbook problems are found in the Solutions Manual, sold separately.
