If you are unsure which Math level your student should start with Saxon, the Saxon placement tests may be found on the following website:
Math 7: This is a 6th-7th grade math class that will review basic math skills and expand on concepts like compound interest, representations of data, permutations, and combinations. It will also introduce basic geometry and basic algebra in preparation for upper middle school math. Students in 6th grade should be advanced in math as this is a math course geared towards 7th graders in preparation for 8th-grade math.
Pre Algebra: In this class, which is geared for 8th grade students and above, all 123 lessons of Saxon Algebra 1/2, which is a Pre-Algebra class that also incorporates elementary geometry, will be fully covered. Prerequisite: Students entering this class must have successfully completed 7th-grade math or equivalent with a grade of C or better, and may be required to complete an assessment to ensure proper placement.
Algebra I: In this class, which is geared towards 9th-grade students and above, all 120 lessons of Saxon Algebra 1 will be fully covered. Prerequisite: Students entering this class must have successfully completed a Pre-Algebra class with a grade of C or better, and may be required to complete an assessment to ensure proper placement.
Algebra II: Algebra 2 is your students’ gateway to higher mathematics and sciences and is essential to preparing your student for college. Students will further investigate concepts that were introduced in Algebra 1, such as linear equations, linear inequalities, polynomials, probability, statistics, and more. They will also transition into Pre-calculus as they study exponential and logarithmic functions and matrices and are introduced to trigonometric equations and identities. Prerequisite: Students entering this class must have successfully completed an Algebra 1 class with a grade of C or better, and may be required to complete an assessment to ensure proper placement.
Advanced Math: Students will conclude their discussion of Geometry, further investigate non-linear concepts and study Trigonometry topics. This Saxon course will provide in-depth coverage of trigonometry, logarithms, analytic geometry, and upper-level algebraic concepts. This course will include continued practice of intermediate algebraic concepts and trigonometry introduced in Algebra 2 and features new lessons on functions, matrices, statistics, and the graphing calculator using the Saxon Advanced Math textbook. Students may earn ½ Geometry credit with their Advanced Math credit upon completion of the course. Students with a full Geometry credit when entering this class, may earn honors credit for this course.
Students are required to have mastered pre-requisite skills for each listed math class.
