## Description

Saxon Math 8/7 with Prealgebra is an integrated mathematics program that consists of 120 daily lessons and 12 activity-based Investigations. Students are tested after every fifth lesson, and all tests are cumulative. Concepts are introduced incrementally and are continually practiced throughout the problem sets.

Each daily lesson consists of the following:

Warm-Up(8-10 minutes)

Students take a quick Facts Practice Test to increase their proficiency with basic operations; solve several mental math problems; and complete a problem-solving exercise by using such strategies as making lists, drawing pictures, working backward, and guessing and checking.

New Concept(s) (10-15 minutes)

The teacher presents the new increment(s) and works several examples with the class.
