I am a strong supporter of Saxon and utilizing the D.I.V.E. program to go with it. D.I.V.E. is a computer CD program that teaches each lesson. The kids are able to go back and forward as they need to. A disclaimer: the teacher is a Christian professor and teaches values i.e. "working with diligence", "doing your best work", "being independent and responsible" as he is teaching. The program is not reimbursable by IDEA but Saxon is.

I have used Saxon from Saxon 65 through Algebra 2. I feel that this has given my children a wonderful background in math including Geometry which is introduced gradually thoughout each level of math. I did not use D.I.V.E. but did find the solutions guides to be very helpful. My oldest son did not need any further math study to get excellent scores on his ACT test.

We have used saxon math 54 through algebra 1 with all three of our sons in the 16 yrs that we have homeschooled. It has been a great tool.

I think this is a good program for the elementary ages, but once you get to pre-algebra and above, it starts to loose steam. We had to sell our set and switch to something new at that stage, even though it worked fine for us before that at earlier levels.
