new look

Googling Saxon Math a couple of posts back, I learned that the Saxon books have "a different look."

Barb's People Builders

They sure do.

My books look like these.

I need a cat.

It's my understanding that the new look also reflects a new owner and a different approach--not so "Saxon-y." Some folks are quite annoyed about this. I'm not sure what I'll do--my daughter is in 76 and I'm a fan, and I'm wondering if I'm going to like the new editions as much.

I have never seen a "Math Cat" before although several of my senior high school calculus students thought they were "Cats."

If you would take a look at the January 2010 news article at www.using I believe your question about which editons of John Saxon's books are still valid - and will be for several decades - will be answered.

If you still have questions you can reach me at my office at (580) 234-0064 (CST) during normal office hours.

I've been wondering the same thing myself.

FWIW, I haven't heard anything negative about the new Saxon books from homeschoolers I know and I have heard positive comments about the new geometry book.

This is all second hand knowledge because Saxon isn't a good "fit" for my kids. Many kids benefit from all the repetition but it would drive mine bonkers.

I am delighted to see my picture on your site of our cat Frankie relaxing on the Saxon Algebra 2 books. Frankie loves to get right up into what ever we try to do and that includes homeschool work when the kids are doing their assignments. Does anyone else have a cat like Frankie?

Is this the right place to share this lovely little sketch parodying Breaking Bad with math? Saxon Math makes an appearance.
