*****Before registering for this class, students will need to complete a required placement test found here: https://www.sonlight.com/uploads/saxon_middle_placement.pdf (Please, no calculators or parent help). Upon completion, please email the test to the teacher to grade and review. This will help to determine the student’s level of mastery and if they are ready for this class.*****
Course Description: Using Saxon Math 6/5, this course will take the students from basic arithmetic through the foundation of many aspects of mathematics, including geometry, measurement, algebra, and scale and graph reading.
Although class time with the teacher will consist of learning new concepts, reviewing missed homework problems, and practicing and applying learned math concepts, this class requires parental support. Parents will be responsible for the following: 1) Giving students daily fact sheets (except for Monday) and checking their work. 2) Grading homework upon completion – students will need IMMEDIATE feedback if they’ve worked a problem incorrectly, so they don’t continue to do so. 3) Proctor (NOT GRADE) tests every other week. Students should be expected to work on assignments at home at least 4 days each week.
Required Materials: Saxon Math Homeschool 6/5 3rd edition – book, test and worksheets booklet, and solutions manual
Supplies: notebook paper, pencils, eraser, 2″ binder with dividers
