Subject: Re: Saxon math

Hi, I am new to this forum, but would like more information about Saxon math. I graduated from Penn State last May and I am now teaching Special Education to students in an alternative ed setting. I am teaching students from several different local school districts, each with its own math curriculum. At least one student has a Saxon math textbook. I am given the choice of which textbook I want to use, and have been reluctant to use Saxon due to the "bad" reputation Saxon has. Am I wrong about Saxon? I do believe in a LOT of repetition, especially for these students, but I do not want to "drill and kill" them. Any advice you have would be appreciated. Thank you Joy Bennett
