DIVE (Saxon Advanced Math 2nd Ed) (G371)
Advanced Math 2nd Edition is typically taught for three semesters starting in 10th or 11th grade. This CD-ROM teaches all 125 Saxon Advanced Math Lessons step-by-step and includes the CLEP Professor Precalculus CLEP Exam prep course. Because Saxon uses an incremental teaching approach, each lecture is only about 15-20 minutes long. Dr. Shormann builds lesson upon lesson, slowly developing complex concepts from bite sized lessons that are easy to grasp. Students watch the lecture and take notes, working the practice problems Dr. Shormann presents, and pausing and rewinding as necessary until a concept is understood. If students want additional practice, they can complete the Example problems in the Saxon textbook. After the lesson, students complete the 30-question Problem Set in the Saxon text. While a few problems in the Problem Set come from the new concept, most problems come from previous lessons. Each problem is cross-referenced back to the lesson where it was taught (cross-referencing found in the Solutions Manual), allowing students to quickly review any concept.
This unique method of spiral review improves critical thinking skills, increases long term retention, and raises standardized test scores. However, this method can be difficult to teach because of the seemingly random presentation of topics. That is why Saxon's founder John Saxon recommended teacher training for all his courses. DIVE CDs provide that teacher, as Dr. Shormann explains how new topics connect to previously learned material, helping students see the "big picture". Also, when a student gets stuck or forgets how to work a problem, they simply click on the DIVE lesson where the concept was originally taught and watch that lesson again. The same can be done when correcting tests. This makes it very easy to fill in any gaps as they show up.
Advanced Math contains all the concepts typically covered in a High School Pre-Calculus course. This course fully integrates topics for algebra, geometry, trigonometry, pre-calculus, discrete mathematics, and mathematical analysis. Word problems are developed throughout the problem sets and become progressively more elaborate. With this practice, high school level students will be able to solve challenging problems such as rate problems and work problems involving abstract quantities. Conceptually oriented problems that help prepare students for college entrance exams (such as the ACT and SAT) are included in the problem sets. In addition, students will learn geometry alongside algebra, similar to how high school math is taught in Europe and Asia. Incidentally, European and Asian students consistently outperform American students on international math tests. Completing Saxon Algebra 1, 2, and the first half of Advanced Math, 2nd ed., is equivalent to two credits of algebra and one credit of geometry.
