Saxon is great with the way designed their books. The 7/6 Math book can be used for your above average 6th grader for more of challenge, especially if they have been using Saxon since 4th grade and started with the 5/4 Math, or it is an excellent book for 7th grader who may need more general reinforcement, while at the same time starting to really dive into beginning algebra, graphing, plotting, and exponents.
Saxon is so easy to read. It was originally designed for kids who lived in the Outback in Australia. It reads like plain English, has practice problems and reinforcement problems, and if the student is having a rough time grasphing a certain concept, Saxon even put extra practice problem in the back of the book. As an adult, you will fall in love in math again...and that's hard for many of us.
The Saxon 7/6 math book does not disappoint. It follows the same plain English explanations followed by practice problems then reinforcement of previous lessons that starts out in the Saxon 5/4 book. This pattern is well recieved by kids and even parents that may be rusty with math can figure things out.
