Students who have successfully completed Math 8/7 (2nd or 3rd edition) with a test average of 80+ and accurately complete the Facts Practice drills in 5-7 minutes, should skip Saxon Algebra ½ and take Shormann Interactive Algebra 1 with Integrated Geometry. Shormann Interactive Algebra 1 & 2 are now recommended over Saxon Algebra 1 & 2. Shormann Interactive Math teaches all the concepts required to excel on the redesigned PSAT and SAT, and ACT, while retaining the original John Saxon teaching methods of incremental development, continual review, and Integrated Geometry.

My student did not successfully complete Math 8/7. Should he/she take Algebra ½ next?

What’s the difference between Math 8/7 and Algebra ½?
