Saxon Math 8/7 with Prealgebra is an integrated mathematics program that consists of 120 daily lessons and 12 activity-based Investigations. Students are tested after every fifth lesson, and all tests are cumulative. Concepts are introduced incrementally and are continually practiced throughout the problem sets.

  • Warm-Up(8-10 minutes)
    In this Saxon Math course, students take a quick Facts Practice Test to increase their proficiency with basic operations; solve several mental math problems; and complete a problem-solving exercise by using such strategies as making lists, drawing pictures, working backward, and guessing and checking.
  • New Concept(s) (10-15 minutes)
    The teacher presents the new increment(s) and works several examples with the class.
  • Lesson Practice(5-10 minutes)
