Saxon Math Course 1

saxon math course one homework answers

Saxon Math Course 1 is a comprehensive math textbook designed for 6th or 7th-grade students, intended to be used after the completion of either Saxon Math 6/5 or Intermediate 5. Saxon Math uses a spiral approach, employing incremental development of new math concepts and continuous review of previous concepts. This book consists of 120 lessons plus 10 investigations organized into 12 sections covering topics such as order of operations, functions and coordinate graphing, integers, number lines, decimal place value, exponential expressions, prime factorization, finding the percent of a number, rounding decimal numbers, geometric solids, and more (see table of contents below).

Each lesson includes practice exercises and problem sets, along with cumulative reviews to ensure students have a firm understanding of previously covered material. The book provides ample opportunities for students to develop their problem-solving skills and critical thinking abilities, making it a valuable resource for both teachers and students. Additionally, the book includes real-world applications of mathematical concepts, encouraging students to see the relevance of math in everyday life. Overall, the book aims to prepare students for more advanced math courses in the future.

Note: This book appears to have been discontinued by the publisher. My Math Assistant recommends using Math 7/6 instead of Course 1 as they are extremely similar.

Saxon Math Resources Your Kids Will Love

Why saxon math.

Saxon Math is a proven math curriculum that is a top choice for many schools and homeschoolers. It uses the spiral method which introduces a new skill or principle each day and then continues to review those concepts for weeks to come.

Nicole the Math Lady’s video lessons can teach your student Saxon Math.  To use the program, you will need to purchase the textbooks separately.  If you are moving to Saxon from a different curriculum and need to figure out where to get started, have your student take a placement test.

Three Ways Nicole Makes Learning Easier

Nicole the Math Lady offers memberships that give one-year access to Saxon Math resources: lesson videos, online grading and extra support tools. Memberships are available for single students, families, co-ops, and schools.

Lesson Videos

Nicole teaches every lesson in the textbook and walks through practice problems with the students. Her on-demand videos typically range from 7-10 mins and 8-15 mins for higher levels.

Online Grading

No more waiting on you to grade assignments. Students enter their answers and receive immediate feedback. They can also instantly correct mistakes which enhances learning.

Extra Support

When students need a little more help, they can turn to these extra resources: One-Minute Tutorials, Masterclass, Class Chat Homework Help, and our new section of additional practice problems, Mastery Bank.

Your membership starts the day you purchase and lasts for 365 days.  

You can change courses whenever your student is ready for the next one.

Support Available for Grades 3-12

The Nicole the Math Lady program is designed to be used in conjunction with the physical textbooks which you will need to purchase separately .

See below for the recommended textbook editions. If you have an earlier edition, click here for more info.

Your Saxon Math Questions Answered

What kind of curriculum is saxon math.

Saxon Math is a spiral-learning curriculum .  Each lesson introduces a new concept.  Students then practice those concepts in the weeks to come. One benefit of this methodology is that students tend not to forget the concepts that they’ve learned.  Learn more about getting started with Saxon Math.

How do I know where to place my student if coming from a different program?

Saxon Math is based on skill level, not grade level. If you are moving to Saxon Math from a different curriculum, have your student take a placement test and learn how to get started .

Is Saxon Math Common Core?

No. Saxon Math has two lines of textbooks. The line designed for homeschoolers does NOT cover Common Core Standards.  However, the line that Saxon markets to schools does have a similar focus to Common Core Standards with more word problems and a focus on a real-world application of math. Learn more about the two textbook lines.

Is Saxon Math being discontinued?

The line designed for homeschoolers is NOT being discontinued. However, in 2023, Houghton Mifflin Harcourt will stop printing their “school” line of textbooks including  Intermediate 3, Intermediate 4, Intermediate 5, Course 1, Course 2, Course 3, Algebra 1- 4th Ed, Algebra 2- 4th Ed, and Geometry. The homeschool line will continue to be printed.

Is Saxon Math hard?

Saxon Math is a rigorous curriculum whose students excel in standardized tests. However, your student doesn’t have to be naturally gifted in math to excel at it. Nicole makes the concepts easy for ANY student to understand. Learn more on how to help when it gets hard.

How do I know which textbook is for which grade level? 

The homeschool line has two numbers on the textbook (ex. Saxon Math 8/7). The second number indicated what is typical “on-grade” level and the first number indicates the level of a struggling student.

Do I need to purchase textbooks?

Yes. Nicole’s videos are designed to work in conjunction with the Saxon Math curriculum. You will need the textbooks to access the practice problems. In most cases, we recommend you purchase the kit which includes the Textbook, the Solutions Manual, and the Test Booklet.

How long are the videos?

Nicole’s videos are clear and concise. Most lower and mid-level topics range from 7-10 minutes, while upper-level math topics range from 8-15 minutes. You can watch sample videos or sign-up for a free trial to see Nicole’s teaching style in action.

Does my student have to do all of the practice problems?

For best results, Saxon Math recommends that students do all of the practice problems. While we agree that doing all practice problems leads to high-achieving math students, we also believe you have to balance this with making the program work for your student. Some families chose to do fewer problems. That’s why our online grading gives you the option to select the number of practice problems your student does. You can select all problems, just odds or evens, or handpick the specific problems you’d like them to do in a particular lesson.

What if my student needs more practice on a specific topic?

Your student can access our Extra Practice Problems Mastery Bank which is a bank of over 10,000 unique practice problems. Just search for your topic and request the number of practice problems you would like. Students can enter their answers directly into the system which will grade them.

Which editions can this be used with?

Nicole used the most recent editions to film her videos. However, she uses unique practice problems that can be used across editions. If you have an earlier edition check to see if Nicole has created a correlation sheet, which tells you which videos to watch for the lessons in your edition .

Do you have family, group, or school pricing?

Yes. We have pricing for single students, small families, large families, schools, and co-ops. See the pricing page for more information.
