Q: Which textbook should I use with the DIVE for Saxon Algebra 2?

A. DIVE for Saxon Algebra 2 teaches every lesson in both the second and third editions. The only difference between these two editions is that the 3rd edition has the lesson reference numbers next to each question, making relearning missed or forgotten concepts quick and easy. However, we now have an updated version of DIVE/Saxon that teaches all the concepts on the newly redesigned PSAT and ACT. I posted an article below with more detailed information.

Shormann Interactive Math Published by Dr. Shormann, author of the award-winning DIVE video lectures for Saxon Math, and based on John Saxon’s original teaching methods of incremental development, continual review, and integrated algebra and geometry, Shormann Math is a 21st Century curriculum that teaches all the concepts required to excel on the newly redesigned PSAT and SAT as well as the ACT, CLEP, and AP exams. It includes concepts like technology applications, computer math, real-world word problems, and non-standard solutions not found in Saxon Math or most other math curricula.
