Nancy Larson, Author of Saxon Math K–4
I began my career in education as a high school and middle school mathematics teacher. As an algebra and geometry teacher, I was aware of the gaps in students' mathematical background. When I became the district math coordinator, it was clear that the gaps were not the results of the teachers' failure to present concepts, but rather by the lack of materials that ensure students' long-term retention of these concepts. After researching many math programs, I found that the textbooks written by John Saxon and Stephen Hake addressed this problem for middle school and high school students.
I then began looking for an elementary program that had the same philosophy as the materials developed by John and Stephen. Unable to find materials that had a similar approach, I decided to write a program with the same philosophy that addressed the needs of primary students and their teachers.
The goal of the Saxon Math K-4 program was to teach important mathematical content using an integrated, incremental approach and to provide the practice necessary for children to master the concepts presented. By working closely with classroom teachers and incorporating extensive field testing, we were able to develop a program that provides children with a solid understanding of the language of mathematics and the mastery of the skills needed to be successful in future mathematics courses.
