This is what we deem our standard "Good" option for Math in 6th Grade. This option utilizes the "You Teach" method, which is a term we have coined for traditional, parent-taught homeschooling.
Pre-Algebra Saxon serves as an effective bridge to the secondary subject of Algebra by providing an introduction to geometry and discrete mathematics. Specific topics covered include fractions, decimals, mixed-number operations, scientific notation, prime and composite numbers, order of operations, coordinates, exponents, square roots, ratios, algebraic expressions, solving equations with one variable, working with signed numbers, geometry fundamentals, probability, and the Pythagorean Theorem. This course is designed to solidify basic mathematics skills and prepare students for success in Algebra I through the practical repetition and continuity for which the Saxon approach is known.
