History | Subjects We Teach | Reading/Literature

Subject: Math

From fourth grade upward, we teach arithmetic and the beginning of algebra using one approach. We use the same textbooks from year to year. This saves on tuition costs, but the main reason is that these textbooks use a solid approach to teaching math. Students solve many problems each day to constantly strengthen their math skills. The problems also review the things that were learned days and weeks ago, so that it is not forgotten. New information is added in short lessons, and eventually shows up in the practice problems. Students have about two weeks to master the new information before they see it on a test. This is called the Saxon math approach, named after the original textbook author, John Saxon.

Students will have time to correct their problems each day, and more time to work on the new set. They should often be able to finish most or all of them at school, leaving no more than 15 minutes of work to do at home.
