Classical Conversations endorses Saxon maths as a complete maths curriculum. No curriculum is ever perfect, but Saxon has the history and statistics to prove that it can take a home educated student through Algebra II and even beyond without the guidance of an expert maths teacher.
Recommended to pair with the K-3 Manipulatives Kit.
Saxon math programs produce confident students who are not only able to correctly compute, but also to apply concepts to new situations. These materials gently develop concepts, and the practice of those concepts is extended over a considerable period of time. This is called "incremental development and continual review." Material is introduced in easily understandable pieces (increments), allowing students to grasp one facet of a concept before the next one is introduced. Both facets are then practiced together until another one is introduced. This feature is combined with continual review in every lesson throughout the year. Topics are never dropped but are increased in complexity and practiced every day, providing the time required for concepts to become totally familiar.
Math 3 uses simulations and games to help third-grade students understand and practice new concepts. Your child can learn to: skip-count by whole numbers, compare and order numbers, identify ordinal position to the twentieth, identify and complete patterns, add and subtract multi-digit numbers, divide by single-digit divisors, add positive and negative numbers, picture, name, and order fractions, add and subtract fractions with common denominators, understand and calculate measurements, compare and measure mass, identify function rules, graph ordered pairs on a coordinate graph, identify angles, and identify lines of symmetry. Math 3 is made up of five instructional components: The Meeting, Number Fact Practice, The Lesson, Guided Class Practice and Homework, and Assessments. This home study kit includes a teacher's manual, a meeting book, and a student workbook with fact cards.
Note: Grade 3 or Third Grade equates to Year 4.
