Saxon is a GREAT program; however, . . .

I love Saxon, but in grades 3 & 4 you HAVE to supplement for multiplication adn division facts or there will be a tank in grades 4 & 5. The students, with proper use, should excell again in the upper grades. I teach 7th & 8th and my Algebra 1 students do many of the same things that the high school Algebra II class does. The cyclical repetition of Saxon makes it a great program, but without making sure the FACTS ARE MEMORIZED in grades three and four, there will be problems.
